3. My clients - sometimes I think this goes without saying but I genuinely am really excited for the couples we work with for their big day. We don’t accept every inquiry that comes our way because we want to make sure that we are a good fit, they understand our style and align with what we love about weddings. We really do try to stay true to our core values of capturing honest emotions during wedding days while having fun. We want our couples to look back on their wedding day and see the real moments and think back to how they had a good time with our team versus “this is the pose our photographer made us do”. I mean, common - that’s no fun right? We are an easy going team that loves our playful and laid back couples!
The lifelong friendships that develop are another client fave. We remain friends even after the wedding has come and gone. Even if it’s just social media, we love seeing couples start their families, go on adventurous vacations and receive job promotions. There is a special bond that is created throughout the wedding process and I love that we are able to take that further after the wedding is done. Cheering on our couples as they grow throughout their marriage is a wonderful feeling.
4. Support - Industry professionals understand and acknowledge that the hours we work are demanding and constant. We are not in an industry where our work stays at work. We are in a creative industry and passionate about what we offer to our clients. We miss out on most weekend and evening events with friends and family so that we can be there to capture our clients most treasured memories. Industry friends understand that it’s more realistic to meet up on a Monday than plan a get together on a Saturday. I cannot count the number of times I’ve said, “sorry, I can’t make it. I have a wedding” but such is life. We continue to miss out on personal events because we are so proud and excited to be doing what we are doing. I wouldn’t have it any other way and am thankful for “seasonal” friends that just get it.
