When someone contacts me about potentially photographing their wedding, I encourage them to meet me for coffee. I think it's a good opportunity for me to show more samples, talk about my process on a wedding day, and gives them a chance to get to know me a little to make sure the like and trust me to be the one responsible for preserving the memories of their day. Well, in this case, a potential bride contacted me from the East Coast. She's getting married in Orinda, but lives in Michigan. So , meeting for coffee was going to be difficult. Despite that, Shelly booked me for her wedding. This was one of the first time a bride (couple) booked me without meeting me first. Well, Shelly made a trip out to go over some wedding day details at the beautiful home that will be hosting the wedding, so I got to meet her there a week or so ago. She was not only a fantastic girl, but so photogenic as well. .she is going to make my job easy!
Grabbed a quick portrait while I was there (the "before" if you will) :)
Looking forward to shooting the real thing in a few week.
