marriage-focused wedding photography
"Breathe, and take in each singular moment of this day."
If you are wondering what I mean by marriage-focused photography, my main objective on your wedding day is to freeze the life-altering emotional connections between you and your spouse so you'll be able to relive the feelings from your wedding day again and again through simple, timeless photographs.
During my own Charleston wedding, I became filled with anxiety (for no reason of course! It just happens sometimes on a wedding day!) and it was my photographer who pulled me aside and said "Breathe, and take in each singular moment of this day. Focus on the present, and be completely in the moment." She changed my entire perspective of my wedding day, refocused me on what was truly important, and I am forever grateful.
I now hope that I can pass that calm energy and guidance to my future brides. When you look back on your wedding day, I don't want you to remember that you were rushed from one place to another trying to stay on a confined, rigid timeline of introductions and a thousand formal, posed photographs. There is definitely a place for this, but I do not make it consume your day.
I want you to look back on your wedding and be flooded with memories and images that portray the overwhelming amount of love that will be surrounding you on the most important day of your life.To do this, I work very closely with you and/or your wedding coordinator from the beginning to create a relaxed timeline that allows you to enjoy the day stress-free. I understand that every couple is different and every detail of your wedding is a reflection of you and your partner. My aim is to capture it all in a way that is authentic and reflects your own personal style.
2ND SHOOTING | MY WORK
arrow through to see some of the images i have captured during my experience 2nd shooting for Emily Meeks Photography. You can also see more (marked and titled) in my portfolio. All rights belong to Emily Meeks Photography.
I have been second-shooting and assisting an amazing, established wedding photographer in the Charleston area (Emily Meeks Photography) and it has been an invaluable experience. Her recent wedding on Fripp Island Resort that I second shot for this summer was even published here AND here! If you are planning a big Charleston wedding, she is your gal!
This experience has given me technical skills, knowledge of wedding day ins + outs and most importantly, the confidence to take the lead and book my own clients! I am still accepting on-call jobs as a second shooter for wedding photography veterans in the Charleston market so with that and my own wedding commissions, my 2018 calendar is filling quickly!
