Why I am good at photographing weddings...

Welcome to my blog!  Since having designed a BRAND new website this year, my old blog was sadly put to rest.  My NEW blog is up and running and you are reading my first post!  So, why am I good at photographing weddings? Well, most would think because I have great technical skills when it comes to photography, and that is true. However, it takes WAY more than that to be a good photographer. It takes MAD people skills and you have to genuinely LOVE people - and I do!  Trying to manage multiple people, during an already high energy time, takes skills and patience. I am really good at gaining the respect of the people I am photographing by offering polite, humorous and firm direction.  No one ever knows what to do when taking a large family photo, so I am there to take over and organize!  I can also handle any crazy groomsmen you throw at me and can hold my own! I love, love, love children and since having some of my own, I get them. I get that they are under a lot of stress too, so I make a POINT to become their friend (if they allow me too).  Overall, yes, it takes good photography skills and a keen eye - but if you don't have people skills, you're in trouble.  So rest assured, you get the full package with me and I adore becoming a part of your family for the day!
