Rebecca and Henry

I love being an Intimate Wedding Photographer!

Discovering that I excel at being an intimate wedding photographer was a journey! This year, I’ve taken a good hard look at my business. I’ve come at it from every angle, looked at past clients (the good and bad), and thought about where I want to do this business. I even spent six weeks wondering if I wanted to keep doing this. I asked the Universe for answers and contemplating things like becoming a life coach, starting a marketing business, teaching English, walking dogs. Do you know what the Universe told me?

Stay here. Pour more. Be grateful. Focus on being the best intimate wedding photographer you can be. Then the Universe gave me the energy and vision to write an entire novel. I wrote it and I can’t wait to start the next draft! Yet, I wanted to pour into my business and nourish my clients. Make their experience as fantastic as possible. I did not book a busy October wedding season. At the beginning of the year, I told myself “I will not do more than four weddings a month.” Yet…I knew deep down, I wouldn’t be able to turn down business. So…the Universe never gave me more than I knew I could handle. That feels nice. So many people are exhausting themselves this season and for what? This year, I get to go to a Halloween party. And a haunted house. I panicked for a bit, knowing my October wasn’t swamped. But I’m learning how to balance it all and that feels incredible. It’s making me realize how much I just want weddings with FEELING. I’m intentionally saving my own energy to shoot every wedding fully and with 110%. I’m not loading myself full of distractions but truly giving to my clients wholeheartedly.

I loved this wedding. Rebecca and Henry are the very living definition of intention. You can see their Krause Springs engagement session, which was relaxed and easy, and gorgeous. Their wedding was just as wonderful. These people wrote handwritten cards to all of their friends and family. Their vows were beautiful, with a ring warming ceremony to put some good juju into their bond. They also dressed their wedding party in some of the coolest ways. I actually had no idea who the groomspeople were, simply because they didn’t match. As soon as I realized it, I LOVED it. So dapper. So real.

What is even more amazing is that it POURED half the day. Tessa with Eclipse Event Co. did her best and adjusted due to Mother Nature. I love working with that team, they make sure everything is solid and wonderful! I looked Rebecca in the eye after her first look with her dad and said, “it will rain and then it will clear up. It has to. I’m using sheer force of will and I’ve got a lot of that.” LOL and it did! It ended up being a lovely wonderful evening.

Shout out to the rad peeps that made it all work!
