so much fun hanging out with these two tonight. the rain didn't stop them for a second! spent some time down by the lake too. can't wait for your wedding next summer Cory and Monique! #whitmezaphoto#greenlakewi#homesteadmeadows
Don't mind my cray-cray hair (it was super windy!) but here I am in action! If you're wondering how I work on a wedding day, I'll tell you this - we have a lot of fun! I have you "do" stuff, I don't just pose ya. Here I was telling Kristin to pick her dress up and put it back down, pretty simple, right? But it gives us some movement and a more natural vibe, better than that posey-posey, super awkward stuff. Another rule I have on the job is that your wedding day is NOT just for photos - photography can naturally take up a lot of time but I really want you to be in the moment and enjoy time with your guests too. I don't want it to feel like you are at a photoshoot for 12 hours - yuck! I am always conscious of the amount of time I use during the day and always make it a priority to get you to the celebrating and partying as soon as possible! Because if the "Cupid Shuffle" is happening, we need to be apart of it!
Textures and patterns are a few things that inspire me. I love paper goods that give me a background to work with. I love loose, organic florals that add dimension to portraits. And I love tulle and lace and chiffon and even velvet on wedding days. Give me all the papers, flowers, and fabrics!! And if you're feeling inspired, go to the blog and check out Kristin and Travis' wedding at Homestead Meadows (link in profile!).
In exactly 365 days I get to marry my best friend and my future students will be able to call me Mrs. Hughes. I am so excited, let the 1 year countdown begin! 06.15.2018. #wedding#2018#homesteadmeadows
