Ok…I would have to say about 80% of the people I photograph say something along these lines – “I’m sorry…we’re so awkward in front of the camera!”, or “I hate having my picture taken because I’m the least photogenic person I know.” Seriously…you guys gotta come up with something new to tell me. This isn’t about me shoving my camera in your face, desperately trying to find a pose where you don’t feel awkward. This is about creating a moment together. When that moment is genuine, you’re in your element, and awkwardness slips away. We are going to do this together. I do whatever it takes to make sure y’all are comfortable. This should feel more like a date night, some much needed family time, a freakin vacation, or just a party in general, than a “photoshoot.”
LET ME HELP YOU BE YOURSELF
UTILIZE MY EXPERIENCE
You’re not the first couple/family/person I’ve photographed. I am 100% here to help you through the entire process. I have experience helping people just like you finding the perfect location, getting permits when necessary, little details like what to bring and how to match outfits, deciding on the best time of day, and mostly helping you be your natural self in front of the camera. For the bride and groom to be – I’d love to work with you on your wedding timeline and make sure we’re including everything it is you’re looking for on your special day. I’m an open book full of tips and tricks related to anything wedding. Don’t let a lack of inspiration or ideas hold you back from getting the pictures you want! I’m here to help you in the creativity department. So let’s get to creating together.
INVEST IN MEMORIES
As I mentioned before, this isn’t about frantically snapping 10,000 pictures knowing that at least a few of them will turn out good. This is about purposefully putting you in your element, that spot in your heart where you feel the most full, and capturing the moments that happen while you’re there. I want these to be MEANINGFUL memories to you. I want you to look back at these pictures and remember exactly how you felt. Don’t settle for anything less than that. Photographs have value for quite a bit longer than 5 minutes, or even a few years. Your story deserves to be told, and the joy you feel in those moments we capture should be shared with generations to come. Let’s make it personal. Let’s make it real.
