Whenever a couple books me, I make it top priority to get to know them as much as I can. I feel that if I can get to know them well and they can get to know me well, it will result in much more relaxed images on their wedding day. And by the time I get around to shooting and blogging their wedding, I always feel like one blog post just isn’t enough to highlight these amazing people that I get to work with. As a result I recently came up with the idea of doing a new series called “memory lane” where, on their first anniversary, I have each couple choose a few of their favorite images from their wedding day, explain why they were their favorite, and then give some wedding tips or marriage advice to my current and future brides.
This is after my mom had a melt down because it was really happeneing….her first born was getting married!!!
This speaks for itself..I don’t think I’ve ever seen him this excited before our wedding! The fact that this was captured was amazing!
My dad promised not to cry! He swears he didn’t! This was a huge moment for me as a daddy’s girl:)
Words of wisdom:
-Don’t invite individuals out of obligation or because you feel bad….no one wins!
-Be patient and considerate regarding your future spouse’s feelings/desires while wedding planning!
-HIRE VENDORS!! Don’t have friends and family “promise” to get a friend of a friend do something for “free”…it may come at a higher cost:(. Trust real professionals to do what they do best!
-Surround yourselves with loving, supportive friends and family who will only speak positivity into your future!
-PLAN and GO ON AN EXCELLENT HONEYMOON…..you’ll need it!!!
