ITS MY TURN✨
Makeup can transform you 💛 I love myself and I think I’m beautiful with and without makeup. Working with my hands and being creative is my passion. I was never confident in my skin because I struggled with acne starting in 6th grade. I’ve learned over the years how to conceal and hide but also how to treat my skin better. My imperfections no longer define me. I no longer use makeup as a way to hide but as a way to enhance my personality and a way for me to show others my passion for artistry. I am an artist.
Wedding Tip Thursday: You know what matters most about your wedding day? Your experience. Hands down. If you're having a traditional wedding, hire someone to MANAGE your day so you can enjoy your wedding that you poured all of your hopes, dreams, money and energy into. I was talking with my friend Candi at @blockweddings recently and we had a conversation about the common misconception among brides that "venue coordinators are the same thing as a wedding coordinator or day-of planner." Typically, that is NOT the case and I urge you to ask questions and find out what their job entails before making that assumption.⠀
A wedding planner, coordinator or day-of coordinator might just be one of the most commonly overlooked vendors but one that can completely affect the outcome of your wedding. I often hear the "I wish I had hired, or, our coordinator was such a great decision."⠀
Your wedding photographer should be in charge and fully focused on capturing and documenting your beautiful moments. As happy as we are to step up and fill many shoes on a wedding day, coordinating should not take over our roll. When we're running around looking for bouquets, missing people, fixing hair, safety pinning dressing, changing timelines, adding in last minute requests, coordinating transportation that was missed, changing locations for weather, finding boutineers because groomsmen didn't have them...I could go on...it takes away from your timeline, our ability to photograph those amazing in-between capture candid moments not to mention our mental capacity to put creativity into your photos. There is so much running through our minds to accomplish in a few short hours, filling all other rolls when needed is draining. We help you with your photography timeline and give you recommendations on how to get the most out of your wedding day photographs but if someone isn't there to help coordinate this when things don't go as planned - this falls on your photographer taking away from your photo time and ultimately your experience and enjoyment.⠀
So look into hiring a coordinator so you can just enjoy every minute of your wedding day and get the most out of your photos. ⠀
When Cassie and Kyu showed up for their engagement session looking like they had stepped right out of the 1960’s and making all my style dreams come true, 😍😍😍 I was over the moon! The romance got real, real quick.
They have the sweetest connection and so much love for each other. I cannot wait to photograph their Spring wedding!
More from their Seattle rooftop engagement session on today’s blogpost.
