How a girl who never really enjoyed weddings became a wedding photographer.
You know those people who really love going to weddings? They love the pomp and circumstance surrounding other people’s weddings and have always dreamt of planning their own?
I was never one of those people.
I was way more interested in planning my next adventure (and an awesome life!) than worrying about what color my bridesmaids were going to wear. There were a few things I cared deeply about – I wanted good food and good beer, for our guests to have a great time, and for our dog to be our flower girl. Beyond that? I just couldn’t get too worked up about a lot of the details. I’d rather be out riding my bike.
Does that sound familiar?
My background in photography is in landscape and adventure photography and its still where I draw much of my inspiration today. It was when I realized that I could combine those interests – a love for people and places and adventure – and help couples who were a lot like me that I realized that wedding and elopement photography might actually be my calling.
And then I tried it and fell in love.
Few things make me happier than working with couples who feel a little out of place in the wedding industry – the ones who feel a lot like I did. My couples march to the beat of their own drum and aren’t afraid of doing things their way. Whether that means planning a laid-back mountain wedding complete with a bonfire or running away to Iceland to elope. They place a high priority on experiences and intimacy and amazing photos. They want a relaxed wedding or elopement day that feels like them. And they want killer images to document it all.
