“...I'm yours and that's it, forever. You’re mine and that's it, forever."
They're my jam. Sure, I love a gorgeous dress, a bouquet full of peonies, and a beautifully yummy cake. But what I really love about weddings is what most people don't see.
I love being with the couple as they're getting ready. Reminiscing with their wedding party. Nervous jitters. Sweet gifts being exchanged. Mom getting a little tipsy from the mimosas. I love to tease grooms that they're going to cry, and then exchange, "I told you so" smirks as they wait, with tears in their eyes, for the love of their life to walk toward them. And a dad, seeing his daughter in her dress. Oy! Pass the tissues!! Grandparents! So adorable! Parents clinging to each other as their children say, "I do."
When they say that your wedding day goes by in the blink of an eye, it's true. And being entrusted to capture those little moments is one of the greatest honors of my life.
"I could not have asked for a better wedding photographer! Barb took the time to meet with me before my wedding to create a photo list and a schedule for my wedding day. Barb also took the time to come to my rehearsal to meet my bridal party and family members. It was extremely obvious that Barb wanted to do everything that she could to make my wedding day run smoothly. Barb’s experience allows her to know how much time it takes for photos and how to keep everything organized throughout the day. On my wedding day, Barb and her wonderful assistant made sure that we kept to our schedule and got all of the pictures (and more!) that I wanted. Barb makes a personal connection with her clients and makes them feel like a friend! Barb returned our wedding photos quickly and they were beautiful! I would recommend Barb to anyone who is looking for an amazing wedding photographer!"
"Hey, Barb... I've got questions."
Are you LGTBQ+ friendly?
Do I really need a Second Shooter?
It really depends on your circumstances.
All of your wedding packages come with engagement Sessions. My Uncle Bob already took our engagement photos. Can you deduct that from the price of the wedding?
An engagment session is more than some photos for your Save The Dates. An engagement session helps us get to know one another. Maybe there is a side of your face you prefer. Or your ears are unusually ticklish and I should avoid directing your partner to whisper into them at all costs. Perhaps you don't like to be hugged a certain way. Quirks. Hey, we've all got 'em but I'd rather learn about them before your big day! I can assure you that this session will put all three of us at ease so your wedding day is a breeze. At least from a photography standpoint. I can't do much about your mother-in-law...
Why is wedding photography so expensive? Don't you just show up for eight hours, push a button, and go home?
Ahhhhh, if only.
Is there anything you hate about weddings?
So, my uncle and my dad tried to choke each other the last time they were in the same room....
That's cool. Every family tree has a few nuts.
