Hi there, thanks for stopping by. First off, there is a sea of thousands of photographers out there, so who should you choose? After photographing over 100 weddings, and working with many other photographers, here’s my advice:
- Find someone that you connect with more than on a “hey I like your pretty pictures” kind of way. Your photographer will spend a LOT of time with you on your wedding day. Pick someone that understands you, that doesn’t try to make you fit their mold. Weddings are so unique, and different. There IS no template or one way to approach a wedding. Find a photographer interested in YOU, and your story, which brings me to number 2.
- Find a storyteller. Your marriage marks the beginning of this new, crazy, wonderful and amazing adventure that sits before you. Find someone that can tell that story as it happens, someone that wont try to fake moments, but that knows how to catch the subtle fleeting moments of emotion found throughout the wedding. Find someone that is EXCITED to tell that story. Try to imagine this photographer telling your story. Can you see it?
- Find a problem solver. Most any photographer with a decent eye can take a beautiful photo in perfect light. But what happens when the light is bad, or it’s raining, or windy, or theres harsh sunlight, or the wedding planner only gives you 15 minutes to cram in all the family formals, or uncle George is stuck in traffic? Find someone that works well under pressure, and that can roll with the craziness of the day, all while gently (and sometimes not so gently) guiding the day along.
If you feel like I’m a good fit, I would love to hear from you. Tell me about your story, how you met. Tell me what you’re most excited about for your wedding. Tell me about the love of your life. After that, I’ll be in touch. Then, maybe I’ll have the awesome opportunity to tell your story.
