The gift!

Every once in a while there comes a client that really helps you find your “voice” or vision. When I decided to open my mind and camera and take on weddings, I was pretty intimidated. This is a one shot deal (so to speak). You have to get it on the first try, unlike kids; you can re-shoot if you have to. Also, I have always found that I’m not your typical New England Photographer, my style is more cutting edge, kinda “Rock ‘n Roll”, bring out the crazy, kind of photographer. So when it came to taking on weddings, I felt like I might be geographically challenged. The first few weddings I shot, with the exception of one, were pretty straightforward. And then there was Kristen and Scott.

I posted their engagement session a while back and have yet to post their wedding photos, until now. This couple did something for me. They gave me a gift. They trusted me. They let themselves be vulnerable. They let me in. And they also gave me complete creative freedom. It is because of them, that I have been able to find other clients like them. Or rather, they have found me. Even if these new couples aren’t as cutting edge looking as Kristen and Scott, they most certainly are mentally. The next few posts are just a few examples of these new couples that have allowed me to enter into their lives and my wedding photography takes a life of it’s own.

Here are some shots from Kristen and Scott’s wedding to start!
