I first met Rebecca & Dan at Stephanie & Levi’s Wedding. Becca was a bridesmaid, and Dan was at the wedding early to just hang out and enjoy the day! Something tat was a bit different about Stephanie & Levi’s Wedding, was tat their entire bridal party watched the First Look Session from a nearby balcony. It was here that Rebecca and Dan got their first glimpse into a Wedding Experience wit me!
You see, Rebecca had inquired about my services a few months prior, but it turned out that I was out of their price range, so they went with another photographer.
As I was setting up Levi for the first look- positioning his feet, arms, head, telling him where to look and what to do- Dan was taken aback! Not only were my posing instructions so easy, a toddler could understand… but we were all having FUN! I was capturing genuinely happy expressions, and special moments… not just “smile-for-the-camera” images. He and Rebecca recently had their Engagement Session with their photographer, and the only posing instructions she gave them was, “look happy and in love!” Dan felt so uncomfortable becasue he didn’t know where to look, or what to do wit his hands.
From that one encounter, this couple gave me the greatest compliment of my photography career. They forfeited their deposit with their current photographer, and hired me on the spot! A lot of photographers will tell you that they provide a unique experience, but to have complete strangers realize that I actually do provide an EXPERIENCE, made all of my hardwork beind the scenes (learning flattering poses, and prompts to reveal natural expressions) worth it!
Rebecca and Dan, you are are amazing! You are so happy and in love, and it shows! It’s contageous even! I’m honored you chose me to serve you, and I can’t wait to photograph your wedding in October!
