HOW DID YOU GET INTO WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

FIVE YEARS AGO I WAS GETTING MY JOB AS A CRUISE SHIP PHOTOGRAPHER, TAKING THE SAME SUPER CHEESY PHOTOS OVER AND OVER, STICKING TO 3 BORING POSES AND ARTIFICIAL BACKDROPS. I DECIDED THAT I WANTED A PHOTOGRAPHY JOB THAT INVOLVED NO TAKING OF CHEESY PHOTOS, BUT INSTEAD GETTING CREATIVE, AND HAVING FUN! SO I JUMPED SHIP (NOT LITERALLY!) AND STARTED MY JOURNEY TO BECOME A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER!

I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING JOYOUS PEOPLE. NOTHING BEATS THE ENERGY OF A WEDDING, FRIENDS AND FAMILY COMING TOGETHER, SOMETIMES FROM DIFFERENT CORNERS OF THE GLOBE, ALL THERE TO CELEBRATE! PLUS THERE’S ALMOST ALWAYS CAKE AND A CRAZY DANCE FLOOR, AND I LIVE FOR BOTH OF THOSE THINGS! 

MY NUMBER 1 TIP WOULD BE, CHOOSE A PHOTOGRAPHER WHOSE WORK YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE! THERE’S NO POINT IN HIRING A TRADITIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER IF WHAT YOU WANT IS FUN DOCUMENTARY IMAGES, OR ONE WITH A MOODY EDITING STYLE IF YOU WANT LIGHT AND AIRY PHOTOS. THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT PHOTOGRAPHERS OUT THERE SO TAKE THE TIME TO CHOOSE ONE THAT YOU FEEL WILL CAPTURE YOUR WEDDING BEAUTIFULLY.

MY SECOND TIP IS TO ENJOY YOURSELF AND DON’T SWEAT THE SMALL STUFF. YOUR DAY MIGHT NOT GO EXACTLY AS PLANNED, BUT NONE OF YOUR GUESTS WILL NOTICE, SO JUST FOCUS ON SPENDING LOTS OF TIME WITH THE ONES YOU LOVE! EVEN IF IT’S POURING WITH RAIN IN JUNE, EMBRACE IT! IT’S ONE DAY, MAKE THE MOST OF IT!
