Growing up, my mom was very into photography. She had a giant chest filled with printed photographs, and I always loved going through them. She always bought me disposable cameras to play with, but when I got my first job in high school, I decided I wanted to buy my own camera and recreate all the photos I’d always loved seeing. I began taking photos of my classmates for their senior portraits and my love for it never stopped!
Find a photographer that feels like a friend. You’re going to be spending your entire day with this person, so if you don’t feel 1,000 percent comfortable with the person after your engagement photos, keep looking! The right fit is out there.
My fiance Justin and I just started First Look and we are incredibly excited. I am a person that loves to collect vintage and cool items for my home – it’s my favorite hobby. We don’t have a big basement to store everything we want for our wedding, so we thought, how nice would it be to just pick everything you could possibly want for your event in a catalog and be able to return it after? We offer anything from a table napkin to a donut wall!
I’m not going to lie, even being in the industry, it’s daunting. My advice is to take your time. Don’t overwhelm yourself. And especially, don’t let anyone else dictate what your wedding should and should not be. It’s all about you and your partner!
I honestly don’t think there’s anything better than a candid photo. Don’t get me wrong, you can get some amazing photos posing people and getting the light just right. But personally, I think it’s best when a couple can look back on a photo and recall the moment and either laugh, smile, or end up with a nice little happy tear.
