This past week I met up with new friends that seemed like we knew them forever! Trevor and Alyssa came in from Michigan for their engagement session and it was just the most perfect day for a shoot! The trees still had leaves, the temperature wasn’t too hot or too cold, the light was gorgeous and the setting was so colorful! The reason these two seemed like friends who we had known forever was because Trevor is Tyler Herrinton’s brother!! If you know our good friend Tyler, you’ll be able to see the resemblance immediately!
You won’t believe this, especially after looking at their photos, but Alyssa shared that she was a little nervous beforehand. I understand why. It’s such a huge unknown when you’ve never had your photos taken before. Thankfully, Alyssa was a natural. She didn’t know this about herself until she got in front of the camera but she’s so good at this! Trevor is too! It makes me so excited for their wedding!!! Michael and I feel so honored to be a part of a Herrinton family wedding! Ty and Ash did the most amazing job filming my brother’s wedding and I hope I can do an equally amazing job for Trevor and Alyssa’s wedding day!! The pressure is on!!
Their shoot was downtown near Maymont Park but instead of going the stereotypical Maymont route, we decided to find some other locations close by. I loved this because I have found that when I shoot in brand new locations, I tend to be more creative and more excited about what I’m shooting!! We didn’t need much! We used one street corner, one willow tree and then took a quick walk under some beautiful oak trees that still had their leaves. So enjoy some of my favorites and get excited because I have a feeling their wedding is going to be one of my favorites in 2020!!!!!
This beautiful day way unlike any wedding I have ever photographed before. It’s hard to put into words how powerful and inspiring it was.
If you’ve been following my updates since I got the R6 two years ago, you know I LOVE it!! It has been a game changer for me! But there is ONE mistake that I’ve made that cannot be fixed afterwards!
There are things that EVERY photographer should have on their website! We will walk through some students’ websites to see how small changes can impact their perceived value, and for you to see if what they’re missing is something that you are too!
You know what I’m realizing? I’m realizing I am loving getting to see people I love and miss in this very busy season of our life.
We’re gearing up for wedding season and there are so many ways to market yourself DURING a wedding to keep new clients coming in! I have been a wedding photographer for 13 years, and I have never paid for ‘traditional’ advertising!
I am eating my words again! For years, I have used InDesign for everything… but Canva had a HUGE update last year which changed everything!!
