Coaching

  • June 2012 | Katie & Heather

interesting to me how my coaching sessions this summer have panned out. First of all, let me just say that I LOVE them. I really REALLY enjoy getting to know these new friends and growing my group of photography buddies. It’s so wonderful getting to actually sit and talk one on one with each person and hear their story, their dreams and answer their questions.  The funny thing is that I have noticed that all of my photographers that have signed up have matched up perfectly! I’ve had some newer photographers, some semi-experienced photographers and recently, I worked with Katie and Heather who are both full time parents

Wedding Wednesday

  • Professional Wedding Makeup

 

just a matter of preference. Do you LIKE makeup and are you COMFORTABLE doing it on your own? For me, I knew I probably needed some help. Can you imagine me, being the basket case that I was on my wedding day, trying to apply FALSIES?! YIKES! I would have arrived to my ceremony with one eye superglued shut! I was WAY too busy and nervous to apply my own makeup and fake eye lashes! I’m really thankful that I had some help! However, for some girls, they LOVE applying their own makeup and they would rather take matters into their own hands on wedding days!

Matt + Sara

  • A Sunflower Inspired Wedding | Harbour View Wedding Photographer

Every bride worries about a rainy wedding day. It’s just a natural fear. But what most brides CAN’T do is just shake it off when that fear becomes a reality. It was raining on Friday for Matt and Sara’s wedding and when I arrived, I asked Sara has she was feeling.  Her response was this “I mean, I can’t change it!”. So true. So she went on with her wedding day as if the skies were blue and filled with white puffy clouds. I’m so thankful for that because great attitudes MAKE a wedding day. The bridal party, the familes, EVERYONE was excited about this day that had been anticipated for SO long and a little bit of drizzly rain wasn’t going to steal their joy!
