The Story Keeper:: Fun, Fresh Wedding Photography in Orange County
Weddings are magic. A good photographer doesn't create magic at your wedding. You do. I don't care what anyone else says. A good photographer is there when the magic happens. They don't make you smile. It's your wedding day; believe me, you're smiling. And crying. And hugging, well, everyone! You're happy. Your husband's happy. And God knows your mom's happy. No, our job isn't to be obtrusive or unobtrusive, for that matter, it's just to be there. To be present. To know what's going on, and more importantly, what's about to happen. A good photographer has more than a good eye. He or she has intuition. Now, I could tell you that this comes from experience—and maybe I would have 10 years ago—but I'm not sure I believe that anymore. I think it's something you have...or you don't.
I don't have to tell you what to look for. You'll know it when you see it. Here's what I mean: Can you look at someone else's wedding pictures and feel like you were there? Do they make you smile?
I don't know you...yet. The purpose of this ad is to let you know me a little. For instance, although I love everything about shooting weddings, I do have a favorite. It's when you put your wedding dress on! Now, I don't care how many times you've tried that dress on; I don't care if you tried it on more than once that day. But when you put it on "for real" a little bit of magic happens. Your face changes. Your whole demeanor changes. Through my camera, sometimes I swear I can see what you looked like as a little girl. I know I didn't make it happen, but I'm grateful to be there witnessing it. And I'm honored that I can help you keep that instant in time. That's what we do.
...because everybody has a story
What was your favorite wedding photo?
There were too many. My favorite was when I sit on the steel pipe and my husband was holding me. I also love my picture with my older sister, the close-up shot.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers?
DVDs & 2 photographers
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable?
They aren't forcing us to pose something weird. Mostly it's quite natural.
