— If I’m being honest, I have a real love / hate relationship with “the dress shot.” It can either be super rad or just not work at all. Sometimes the venue doesn’t have a spot to hang it that makes sense. And, I’m not hating on anyone who does this, but I just am not into hanging a dress from a tree. I’ve seen it done well, but it’s just not me. If you’re wanting “the dress shot” make sure to chat with your photog about how you can pull it off in a way that seems natural and effortless.
— For the first time in more than two years, I’m opening my books for family sessions. And I think they’re here to stay. My approach to photographing families is the same as couples: Let’s just hang and capture the real—in a creative way. I can’t wait to share more of this little mini session with Ali, Trevor and Ivy. This fam has such a special place in my heart. I’ve known Ivy since she was just a sonogram photo. More on that story soon. xo
— “Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again, but life goes on.” Don’t post quotes on here often, but this is one of my favorites that’s been on my mind as of recent. Who can name the movie?
— In case you missed it: These Brooklyn babes are on the blog. Forever loving the effortlessness of this shoot.
— Headed to Austin today and reminiscing on this shoot from almost a year ago. Fun fact: I realized I’ve been going pretty much non-stop since August of last year. Between then and now, I’ve shot 44 weddings — most of which weren’t in the city I lived. Oh, and I moved to California and back. The experience I’ve gained though pushing so hard this past year is truly invaluable. Not to mention the expenses that came with the move (truly couldn’t have done it without the income of so much work). I am really looking forward to a lighter workload over the next few months / beyond. My goal is to diversify my shoots a little bit (aka not just shooting weddings) so I can keep giving my 100% to every couple.
