In every meeting we’ve ever had with a bride and groom, we always give a shout out to our first clients. They trusted us. They empowered us. They had a natural affinity with us.
Those are three essential things we look for when we book clients. We are just as picky as the bride and groom is when picking out their wedding photographer.
If you don’t feel comfortable, your pictures will reflect it. The opposite is true as well. Emotion cannot be edited or altered. If a bride doesn’t feel comfortable with me, I can’t edit her emotion in photoshop. We aren't Vogue magazine.
However, the brides and grooms who feel comfortable with us, and we with them, are the clients we book. Laughter, joking, genuine compassion and care of our client. The client experience we offer is why we are growing. At least that's what we are told by our clients.
We believe most couples hire us because we are transparent, able to share our weaknesses, see that we display our strengths, that we are teachable and lovable, and ready for any challenge. The other reason: we are a husband/wife team that rely on the strengths of each other. We don’t call ourselves “first and second shooters.” We are a team. We have roles, and are solely focused on our clients experience aligned with our camera and lens in hand.
