What attracted you to the profession? My wedding! When we got our photos back, I was able to relive our wedding day – I never realized how photography could do that! Combined with my passion for all things art, my newfound career was born!
What is your most memorable wedding and why? Probably a more recent wedding up in the Jacksonville area, there wasn’t a huge budget, but all of their friends and family helped with setting up and pulling the whole thing together. The couple was young and so in love! It was a glorious day up until the bride started walking down the aisle. It started raining, and they just went with it, it was a Jesus filled ceremony. And it rained off and on the rest of the night. This was the first time that a client didn’t let anything get in the way of the day, we took photos in the rain, and it was amazing! I’ll remember that wedding for a LONG time!
Would you say that you have an area of expertise or specialty? I feel that I’m a story teller. I love to document my clients day as it unfolds, but also add the way that I see it through my lens. It’s one of the biggest days of someone life, and I love that I can add my art to it!
If you could offer one piece of advice to every bride, what would it be? Don’t get caught up in what everyone else is doing, make the wedding about you and your personality. And realize the reason why you are getting married, its about the ceremony. Don’t rush through it, the vows that you’re sharing are supposed to last a lifetime.
As far a photography, I would advise brides to pick someone’s style that fits your personality.?Also, make sure that their work is consistent, and timeless. You want to make sure that you’re still going to love the photos 40 years from now!
Why do you love working with Event Design? Event Design is such an amazing group to work with! I’ve known the team for a long time and their personal investment with each client (and vendors!) makes the event flow even more smoothly! Their professionalism is unmatched. Working with their client’s is always fantastic because I know the day will be epic!
