Despite my orderly right brain instincts, I’m never happier than when something unexpected happens and all the chaos starts – my left brain takes off, adrenalin rolls and I create wedding awesomeness.
What’s it like to work with me?
A few weeks before the wedding comes my businessy-like spreadsheet-y wheelhouse: the client questionnaire. This info form gives me all the details I need to fully realise your vision for the day. It lets me fully relax and be wholly absorbed in capturing each moment, ready to roll with whatever comes our way – be that planned events, wedding chaos or planned chaos. Despite my orderly right brain instincts, I’m never happier than when something unexpected happens and all the chaos starts – my left brain takes off, adrenalin rolls and I create wedding awesomeness.
But I’m getting ahead of myself – I’m already talking about your wedding. Back to the initial meeting. I’ll show you some pretty albums, we’ll chat about the plans for your big day and go over all the details, we’ll drink some small-batch craft beer and you’ll go away with a full understanding of how I role with all your questions answered and concerns alleviated. Now let’s head back to your wedding.
I throw all of me into your day and am certifiably spent. Your guests will hardly notice me, but you will – you’ll see me capturing it all. I come home and I’m knackered. You’re exhausted too – but rushing off to start your Mr and Mrs lives or the Mrs and Mrs, if that’s how you roll. Then it’s all over. You took the time to be mindful and present but still the day you’ve been planning for the better part of a year is over.
The best part of my job happens right about now. My photographs and album will make it real all over again. On page one of the album it all comes back. You’re there getting ready jittery and excited and nervous, taking your vows, the kiss, the dinner, the dancing all over again.
And it’s all there. The mood, the details, the story of the day, even the candid in-between moments you started to forget in the post wedding haze. After all, you hired a biographer for your love story – and there it is. Your romantic story has been told.
But now I sound all sentimental and romantic so I’m going to talk about beer to compensate.
Let’s have that drink to discuss.
