What would you love every couple to know about wedding photography?
Planned moments are great, but the best photos come from those real, genuine interactions. So have fun! Be silly, tell a joke, give a twirl, have a drink, be you! That’s when we’ll work best together as a team.
What are couples are often surprised to learn?
That I get butterflies too! I treat every shoot both on the day and at my computer like it’s the only one I’ll do.
What do your couples say they love most about what you do?
That I make them feel comfortable and relaxed just being themselves, which makes me so happy to hear!
How do you create a great experience for your couples?
By getting into moments with them – laughing with them, crying with them and feeling all the feels in between (you should see me when the bride is coming down the aisle!).
What’s your best advice for couples planning their wedding right now?
1. No one has their dream budget, so pick the things that are really important to you and focus on making those special.
2. Create enough space in your timeline in case things run behind schedule. A lot of times the day can get a bit out of place, so I love helping couples create a schedule to make sure everything goes smoothly.
3. Let your photographer know what you’ve included in your day that is personal to you! I want to make sure I don’t miss what your sweet aunt or cousin made, or anything else that is unique to your story.
