When the Bride, Family, Groom, and Photographer all mesh, Magic Happens!
Not only do I ask them, if they are local, to come to the studio before signing the contract so we can talk, but I also offer a free engagement session for those that are close enough for us to do so. The engagement session is offered with the wedding package and it gives us a chance to work together before the big day!
It is where I get to see who they are as people and as a couple. I get to see their personalities and how excited they are for the wedding. I get to read their body language, and learn what makes them uncomfortable.
In the short time we are together, I see if they are going to be the couple that wants the traditional poses or will climb to the top of the hill covered in tall grass.
It is the time where we learn if our visions and personalities mesh.
As a wedding photographer, I come in contact with many different people, brides, venues, families, vendors, etc. and it is so important to me to vibe with all of them!
When you feel comfortable around your vendors, including me, you give me access to the real you, which in turn makes your pictures GORGEOUS!
When you have everyone, including the DJ's and videographers, meshing together the day ends up AMAZING!
