I love snapping the perfect shot and all, getting that perfect symmetry and lighting... But when it comes to photography the thing that makes me fall in love with my job is being able to create gateways to emotions and memories through my images. When someone sees an image of a their big day that I snapped it instantly takes them back to that moment in time, its a gateway to a moment tha'ts been and gone. To put it simply I love being able to help people see/remember the best part of their day.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done event photography before and had to take a lot of portraits and group photos. For the group shots I spent the night getting to know the crowd and would make jokes based off of each groups dynamic and get genuine laughs that made for the best photos. I find the way to make a shoot special is to get as involved with the clients as possible and make them feel comfortable.
