Wedding at home, 2020 adjustments
We've all made a few changes this year.
A few things definitely had to change around this year, but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t celebrate Rachel and Roberts’s wedding. For each couple that has had to change their plants around this year, I decided to give them the opportunity of adding a celebration shoot to their wedding package. Additionally, I decided to extend the 2020 Wedding photography discount to the rest of the year as well.
They decided that the best thing that they could do at the moment was to have a ceremony at home, get ready to move forward in their lives as a married couple, and come back together to celebrate later in the year with their friends and family.
To the couple directly: Thank you guys for giving me the opportunity to work when the world needed to adjust. You guys gave me an opportunity to do what I feel is most telling of my skills and personality. You guys showed me that I could be a wedding photographer and that there are people who are still happy to support wedding photography, even with so much going on, and so much needing to be different.
This is also one of the fun times I got to use a new lens that was made recently available at our local camera rental location in Portland. Prophoto supply has been the best window for me to try out new equipment and test new opportunities. Such as shooting in a heavily mixed lighting location indoors with little light control. I like to consider them the invisible vendor making what I do possible during my 2020 weddings.
Back on the Beach
Summer is here and it's safe back on the beach!
The time is here where we can actually get back onto the beaches. I have an elopement wedding coming up very soon, and it inspired me to repost a few photos that needed to go back under the editing board. After getting back under, I'm happy to show off these photos once again. The full collection will be available soon, along with a new preset for you guys to check out. That's up right now I hope you guys enjoyed a section of the day where we ended up hanging out on the rocks, and traveling through the woods right off the beach.
My first Wedding as the Main photographer
This was my first wedding as the head photographer.
Way back in 2015 going into 2016, I took on my first wedding as the head photographer. I can easily look back and see all the flaws in my way of photographing, but I also see The joy and the bride and groom and family overriding any insecurities I had.
Elizabeth and Ryan Became my friends in college, getting to know them a little bit more really solidified how I approached wedding clients today. I really want to get to know whoever is getting married, I really want to make it a personal goal to understand the couples. And that tradition really started with Elizabeth and Ryan, so I thank them for not only giving me the best opportunity to be a wedding photographer, trusting in me to do a good job, but also solidifying a key aspect of my business, and that is to take care of people. Even as I am writing this at 4 a.m., I remember that day so well.
An all day Affair for myself, And we kept the entire wedding indoors for the most part, a couple of photos in front of the hotel, but January 1st is usually a very cold day. There is a wedding video that actually went along with this wedding, one day in the future, I'll look back into it to release it. As of right now I hope you guys enjoy this wedding!
So whats new on this side! Lots going on and I am planning to release a ton of new things your way for you guys to learn, participate, and enjoy. More things are being made for brides and grooms, but also for peoplewho are just fans of what I do!
