I get asked all the time about how I achieve the look in my photos. I’m not your typical photographer. I’m not light and airy, I’m not dark and moody. I fall into a category that is less represented and I think that’s what makes my images recognizable. I consider myself to be inspired by film with true to life images. You see, over editing isn’t for me. I’m a sucker for natural skin tones. Dark isn’t for me because I want my photos to be full of light and warmth. And even though I’m inspired by film, I take the best things about film and leave out the things I don’t like as much such as the flatter tones in it, the skin that’s a hint of orange or red. For me, I think I have the best of both worlds. The romantic and soft vibes that film gives while keeping colors true, a bit of pop and the ease of digital. You’ll get your gallery back more quickly because I shoot digitally. I’m talking under a month kind of quickly. 😘 You’ll see a sneak peek within a week. And because I believe in perfection, every blemish, scar, gum spot on the concrete, dead flower in your bouquet(unfortunately it does happen), your skin, your eyes, your lips... it’s all hand edited by me. No outsourcing my work, no just shooting and doing a preset on the image and being on my merry way. I pour my heart and soul into the images I take. I want them to look straight out of a Disney Fairytale because my couples deserve gorgeous memories of their best day ever. 🥳
Yep. That's my mini me behind the camera. Isn't she the cutest? A couple of months ago, my assistant for the day had a family emergency come up. My couple's package didn't include a second shooter but I always make sure I have an assistant with me to help take some of the load off of me. Plus, it helps to have a travel buddy when you're going out of town. It was so last minute, I had trouble finding a replacement so Memory asked if she could come and help. Then, she asked if she could take some photos during the reception and ceremony so I set up the camera and let her have some fun. Needless to say, I think I am going to be adding her to the team soon. She did a pretty good job. And look at her on her tippy toes...just like her momma. 😍 Also, she said her favorite part was watching their first look. She said it was the sweetest thing ever!
Spring is coming early this year. I can feel it! Spring and summer are the absolute best times to have your engagement photos for my style of photography. April-September is when I suggest engagements to be done because the weather is more dependable, the data are longer, the sun is softer and the colors of flowers mixed with romance cannot be beat! 😍 It’s also the perfect time for anniversary sessions. ☺️ I’ll help you find the perfect location, give you style tips and so much more. You are going to have the best time because I want you to feel like you’re on a date and I’m just Paparazzi telling you how beautiful you look. 😘
A Dirty Word in the Wedding Photography World: Ghosted I'm kicking off my first blog of the year with a word that makes every photographer cringe. This is what every couple needs to know before reaching out to photographers. ❤️ Link is in my bio. 😘
Past brides, let’s chat a bit. 😍 Tell me what is one thing you would do differently if you could do the wedding all over again. Let’s help all of these 2020 & 2021 brides out a bit. I’ll start: I would have made sure Casey and I had alone time. All of our family and wedding party was with us from getting ready to portraits to the reception. Honestly, it was all overwhelming. I felt as if the day was more about socializing than celebrating and creating memories together. We didn’t have any alone time except our first dance and it makes me so sad. 😭
