The number one hesitation my brides and grooms tell me they have before booking their wedding photographer is stress around having their photo taken. They are nervous about cheesy, posed photos that don’t represent them. Can you relate? I can talk allll day about how I can help you overcome fear of the 📷... BUT I thought it might be more helpful to hear from one of my past brides. I’ll be honest, when Elissa sent me this video I choked up!! 😭 make sure you watch until the end. Such an powerful reminder of just how important wedding photography is. Download the free guide (link in bio) to discover 6 secrets that are ESSENTIAL for beautiful (non-cheesy) wedding photos.
Grace and Tom has one of those weddings I will never forget.⠀ ⠀ It was an honour to photograph their Queenstown wedding, made even more special because I photographed Grace’s sisters Jess’s wedding, 5 years prior.⠀ ⠀ After enjoying time with their guests after their ceremony, a HELICOPTER picked us up (I still get goosebumps thinking about it). We had the most breathtaking ride over the lake, landing on the top of Cecil Peak. It was almost completely calm at the top of the mountain, and totally silent. I can’t even begin to describe the atmosphere in words. It was magical.⠀ ⠀ Grace and Tom cracked a bottle of Dom Perignon, toasting to becoming husband and wife. I wanted to let Grace and Tom just be in the moment together, to focus on each other and the commitment they have just made. What a PRIVILEGE it was to capture two people madly in love in this incredible environment.⠀ ⠀ What is something you won’t compromise on for your wedding day? A helicopter is always a good idea!⠀ ⠀
My little mini-me. 💕 I have 3 sisters, and I’m the (some might say bossy...) eldest. I see so much of myself in Ava, it’s quite frightening!⠀ ⠀ I dreamed of having a daughter, and even though our similar personalities mean we clash sometimes...she’s my mini-me and I just love and cherish our girly time together. Especially unicorn nail art 🦄.
Having your photograph taken is a vulnerable thing to do! If your photographer doesn’t put you at ease, you’ll end up with awkward images that don’t represent you - or worse, the whole atmosphere of the day can be dictated by a photographers bad vibes and energy!⠀ ⠀ You need to book a photographer that will seamlessly slot into your day, and fit in with your guests. Get this right and you’ll receive photographs that truly capture the SPIRIT of your wedding.⠀ ⠀ An excerpt from my guide “6 secrets to ensure natural, unposed, beautiful wedding photos.” Link in bio to download!
