Back at the beginning of the year I had received a few inquires asking either “Do you shoot church weddings” or “Why don’t you shoot church weddings?”. I’m not sure how this rumor got around or why it was thought I don’t photograph church weddings but I 100% do. In fact, I’ve shot several and they’re all here on my blog.
I know I advocate for the “off beat bride” more often than my traditional brides. It’s not because I like them more, it’s because the brides who want to do something different need more encouragement to be themselves and plan the wedding they want. If you’ve never planned wedding, let me tell you, you have A LOT of opinions thrown at you about how YOUR wedding should be and a lot of judgement passed on you when you do something even slightly different. I’m talking like when the couple opts for donuts instead of cake. Yeah. I’ve had clients in the past tell me grandma lost her shit because they weren’t serving cake at the reception. Imagine grandma’s reaction if this same couple had opted to, I don’t know, where jumpsuits and fedoras instead of a tradition dress and suit.
Ok, so long story short, I love photographing my client’s dream wedding; whatever that may be. You do you. I document it all!
