I think a lot of people become easily overwhelmed and nervous when it comes to getting their photos taken, and I completely understand! It can be strange to have someone pointing a camera at your face for hours, especially when your hands suddenly become this weird part of your body that you have no idea what to do with! Trust me, SO many people feel that way and it is totally normal!
That is where I come in! When you arrive at a shoot with me, you are going to learn very quickly that it can be a lot more fun than you expect. Of course I will guide you along the way, tell you where to look, and where to place all of those strange limbs, but we will also laugh! Not only will I be basically doing yoga or crawling behind a bush to get just the right angle, you guys will be interacting with one another through different games and prompts! Before you know it you won’t even realize the camera is around because you will be hugging your stomach holding back tears from how silly the other person looks as they attempt their best impersonation of you. If you want real, authentic photos of what your relationship looks like, then we are going to dance in the field as if you’re at home in your kitchen when no one is watching. In those small, in between moments when you look up and see your significant other attempt the worst moonwalk you have ever seen, you will be reminded of how lucky you are to be by their side, and those are the snippets I am going to capture. So we are going to have a lot of fun, we will most likely embarrass ourselves slightly by the end of the shoot, but you will also walk away feeling all warm and fuzzy inside.
For those who like a more logistical side of how a shoot/wedding will look, here is a brief idea: After you inquire with myself and decide to go forward with booking, I am all yours! Feel free to ask me anything! Outfits tips, location ideas, vendor suggestions, timeline questions, etc. I want to help you in any way I can, so always know you can get a hold of me regarding our session or your wedding day. On the day of the shoot, although we do have a set session time, we also will stick around until we get the photos we need! I want you to go home with so many photos that you can’t possibly find enough wall space to fit them all! I want you to see photos from your wedding and say, “I didn’t even know that happened!” and find even more moments from your big day to love! From there you will always receive the high-resolution, carefully curated images online to share with family and friends, print, or save for another time.
I am fully, 100% committed to you and capturing your memories when you hire me! I have years and years of experience under my belt and I have been to many weddings, so don’t worry! I got your back!
