Traveling to document someone’s wedding is always a thrill. It’s even better when you’re traveling to document a wedding of someone you’ve known for many years. Choosing a wedding photographer that you have chemistry with and feel comfortable around, I believe, is the number one thing to take into account.
Having beautiful photos is the end goal, absolutely. But it takes more than knowing how to work a camera to create beautiful photos. You want someone you can feel awkward around, because a good photographer takes those awkward feelings and uses them to your benefit - we bring a sense of comfort into the mix that makes you feel like your “awkwardness” isn’t awkward at all. You want someone you can trust to direct you when needed, someone who’s willing to go the extra mile and be respectful and polite around your friends’ and family.
Choosing your wedding photographer is not JUST about the final product. It’s about the experience leading up to your wedding, the day of your wedding, and even after.
These two. I don’t know how many times they were worried about feeling awkward. And I always assure my couple’s that is the least of my worries. I want them to have fun. I want it to feel joyful and exciting. The moment they realized how easy the process was going to be, I could feel and see the comfort fill their faces and sink into their bodies - and we had SO much fun. Through getting ready, first look, portraits, and all - it was filled with laughs, abounding confidence and joy.
That is one of my ultimate goals in capturing your wedding. This day, is a day you’ll never forget - and I don’t want there to be any stress, or drama, or discomfort being a part of your day. I KNEW Jillian and Scott’s day was going to be beautiful, and I expected it to be the best experience. It truly was. And their friends and family members were so kind, helpful and thoughtful throughout the day.
It is an honor to be a part of every single couple’s wedding I shoot. It’s even more of an honor to have a history with someone, and get to be present during such a special day.
This wedding was a dream. Just take a peak into their day and you’ll see why.
