It’s the start of the 2015 season, and we’re so excited to be kicking it off with a new look! Sometimes it’s easy to get bogged down with “whatever everybody else is doing.” In the age of Pinterest and Instagram, it’s easy to always compare ourselves. It’s easy to discover what’s hot, what’s not, and where you size up in the mix. But sometimes, in the midst of media pressure, one has to step out in confidence and determination, and say, “This is me!” It’s therapeutic, trust me! Really! Scary at first, but, oh, what a peaceful existence it is.
So, here we are!
Through the years, I’ve found myself wanting to embrace shadows, loving black and white, and being totally obsessed with cathedral veils, bow-ties, and back-lit images. I constantly preferred photos that either genuinely were from, or emulated 1930s and 50s fashion. As each season passed, I mustered more courage to embrace what I loved, whether it was popular that second or not. I couldn’t shake this style gravitation and so I embraced it. And I haven’t looked back since! Personally, I’m drawn to photography that I truly, truly feel will, that’s right, “stand the test of time.” But really.
There is a photographic style for every flavor of ice-cream (oh, how I love anything with huge chocolate chunks), which is why it is so important to really choose the best match for you! Not the best match for the bride who’s your friend’s friend, or the photographer who you found charges the least (unless that’s the most important thing to you). Your wedding images are one of the few items that remain tangible memories after your Big Day which is why it is so important to choose someone who will capture you.
So that’s what we’re all about this season: capturing the rawness and uniqueness of an individual, in a classic and real sense so that their children and grandchildren will want to be them when they grow up, rather than laughing at their parents’ giant poof sleeves and exceptionally awesome perms, you know?
