Tell me about how you feel in love.
what is your favorite date night activity? (Binge watching Netflix is cool)
Are you looking for Video, Photos or both? (Paparazzi over here)
When is the best time to call you? (let's have a jam session)
So here’s the thing everyone and this is very important. You’re about to drop thousands of dollars on a photographer, so it’s worth taking the next 5 minutes to read this. I’ve gotta prepare you just a little bit before we go any further because it’s important that we are on the same page, because hiring a photographer is a huge deal. Not just because of the money, it’s a big deal because you don’t realize at the moment that this is probably (and hopefully lol) your first time having a wedding, but you’re going to be spending so much of your wedding day with your photographer and videographer. So I want to make sure we are a good fit, because I’m going to basically be your third wheel through this crazy emotional vulnerable day in your life.
If you’re attracted to my photos because of the real, authentic, non-cliché emotion, you’ll need to be oaky with opening up some and letting me be more than just the photographer you hired, but actually being a friend, otherwise we will never get those amazing photos you want. For me to be able to create those priceless moments and showoff just how weird or sarcastic or teasing or romantic your relationship actually is, we have got to be friends. Now, that doesn’t mean I need you to be telling me your deep darkest secrets but you’ve got be okay with taking a few shots of your favorite drink together, finding the nearing Cookout or Dairy Queen after our shoot for shakes or blizzards. You have to be ok with laughing at yourself tripping on your mud stained dress and be down to be jumping up and down with excitement when you have your first kiss, or even dancing in the rain.
So why are these moments important? These are the very ones you are going to look back on years from now and cry over. How do I know that? Because I have photos like this in my own life. I have photos from when I was a kid growing up in SoCal and it’s a remind of those happy days or care free living when so little matter but those moments that can never be repeated and never will I be able to go back to that I can now still cherish and love.
Why would you want to hire just some stranger with a camera, telling you to fake laugh or have you be in some stiff pose in some random field that isn’t meaningful to you? Let’s go back to those places where ever they are that you had your first date at and got milkshakes, or where you first told each other you loved one another even if that’s in the back of your truck underneath the stars sky’s. I want you guys to be yourselves. If you guys are usually wearing dirty sneakers or have your hair up in a messy bun, then don’t try and wear some fancy junk you would never actually wear because although you would look nice for the pictures, let’s be honest, it would be taking away from who you are in real life. And why would you want to be anyone other than that awesome, weird, goofy, sarcastic, romantic, tickle monster, milkshake loving, nerds you truly are?
So here’s the thing, let’s get on the same page. This won’t be a good fit if you are just trying to follow all the traditions that everyone says you should be doing, pleasing your parents and taking all the meaningful aspects that mean so much to you both out of YOUR day, if you are just getting married in a barn wearing stilettos with glitter everywhere because you feel like you have to, or if you want to look perfect in every photo. I want to capture photos of you two sneaking off away from everything to take a hike with your dog the morning of your wedding, I want to capture the real laughs (as you whisper what you had for breakfast that morning in her ear) that aren’t posed or fake. I would rather miss that photo of a centerpiece on a table because I’m getting photos of your dad writing his speech with shaky hands and a sniffy nose the morning of your wedding. I want you to look at the photos and remember your flower girl as she twirled in her little white dress or your clumsy best friend with wine on her dress. I want to capture the emotion and the meaning, because it should be about the love, not putting on an event where everything needs to go “perfect” because guess what? That’s just not how life really is. I want to capture those imperfect moments where you’re laughing so hard that your side hurts or doing the worm on the dance floor. Where you two are singing at the top of your lungs to the first song that you two jammed out to on your first road trip together, or you spilling your mimosa all over the floor the morning of because your best friend showed you the funniest cat video (cause lets be real, cat videos are the freak’n best?!). Those are the moments you will never want to forget about, and the ones I want to capture for you.
I want you to have the best photographer you possibly can, because these are photos you can’t ever redo. I know you don’t realize it now while you’re so focused on so many other things like your wedding planning and budgets and all that stressful stuff, but photography is something that you shouldn’t have to be worried about. I can’t tell you how many couples I’ve met who have told me their biggest regret about their wedding was skimping out on a cheap photographer because they needed more money for their centerpieces that were rented or will wilt away or paying for their dad’s college buddy who never met you before to eat at your reception. These photos though aren’t going to be thrown away the day after your wedding. You’re going to be showing these to your kids in 10, 20, 50 years that will make you remember why you love each other so much.
Well it looks like you got through all that! If you’ve gotten to this point, it means you’re still into this, and still into me ;) So, fill out the form below and let’s start dreaming up what your special day that I’ll third wheel with you, with my camera will be and look like. I’m beyond stoked you read this because it shows you actually give a shit and now we get to stop faking it and become actual friends. We get to know one another, have drinks together, have that wonderful milkshake between your ceremony and reception, and party the night away like never before!
