I care about what you think. i care about what moves you. I care about what your family thinks. i care to get to know you, not just the "wedding" you that you'll share with all of your vendors, but the real you.
That's where it all starts.
I want you, your partner, your family, your friends to feel comfortable with me, because with that comfort comes more authentic and genuine expression and less "uh-oh the photographer is looking at me" awkward moments.
This is like any other relationship, the more intention you put into it the better the end result is. If you are simply just looking to check the box of “photographer” in your wedding planning book, then I may not be right for you.
The more trusting you are with me, everyone else will simply fall into place. My couples find comfort with me by taking the time to spend time with me, not talking about the wedding (though we can do that too) but just being normal people curious about one another. So we can meet up over drinks and food, or we can bring beers to a video call.
I am first and foremost a storyteller and if I don't know your story, I have to improvise. I have no problem improvising, but the better I know you, the better I tell your story. And your story deserves to be told.
