One of the best uses of the time you've booked your photographer for is adding in more portraits to your timeline. Sure, it seems intimidating at first, but why wouldn't you want more photos to add to your wall, desk, and album? Besides, the portraits won't feel nearly as intimidating after you've had time working with your photographer prior to the wedding. I've said it many times before, but I'll say it again. The biggest reason to hire your photographer for both an engagement session and wedding is to learn how your photographer likes to work and get more confident in front of the camera! But I digress...
As we approach 'engagement season', I find it appropriate to dedicate this blog post to those gifting a ring to their loved ones. Let's be honest, proposing is stressful. Fun too, of course! But if you're ready to pop the question, your mind is probably racing with ideas and possibilities.
So where do you start? Let's start with the obvious. 1. You want to spend the rest of your life with your person and you want to show them a sign of your commitment. 2. You have a ring or other symbol of love for your significant other to show off to their friends.
Last week on Instagram and Facebook, I officially announced the end of my career as a part time employee, and the beginning of my life as a full time hustler. Now let me clarify, I had always considered my photography business to be my full time career, especially with the love and work I put into it. So in technicality, I quit my part time side gig, not the other way around. Are we on the same page? I thought so! It was a scary decision to leave consistency, but the need to elevate the love and service I give in my business, showed me it was the only decision to make.
On Sunday February 11th, I was so privileged to host a wedding & community open house with my favorite local vendors. We had cake, sparkling cocktails, a photobooth, live music, and more! I am grateful to have had a video crew tag along, Fibre Creative, to share this experience with us because there are no words to communicate how fun, sweet, and intimate the event was. Long gone are the days when brides attend events they can't have a minute with the vendors!
Please enjoy the quick peek at our event, and keep your eyes out for the announcement for our second! Credited vendors tagged beneath the video.
