Not Just A Wedding Typical Photographer

When you’re a wedding photographer, you’re not just a wedding photographer. You have a long list of other jobs you have to be ready to take on at any moment.  I’ve been a janitor, hair stylist, make up artist, weather woman, fashionista, lion tamer, oh and a photographer. You also have to be more then just a portrait photographer, you also have to take good food, architecture, candid, action, macro, and landscape. It makes me nervous when people just ask their friend with a nice camera to take their wedding photos! There is so much going on you have to be the able to fight the storms.

You were hired by your bride. She choose you and trust you with the most important day of her life. No pressure right? When I shoot a wedding, I sorta turn into the bride’s right hand woman. I’m there to make sure she has everything she needs. In my camera bag, I have chap stick, bobbi-pins, safety pins, band aids for those blistered heels, and a bunch of other loose end items that usually get forgotten items on your busy day.

It almost is an adrenaline rush for me. When I worked at Walt Disney World, I worked multiple attractions. You always had to be on your toes and be ready to take control of a crowd within seconds. You have to pay attention to every little detail of the ride so that no one gets hurt. Weddings are pretty similar. There are a lot of emotions, people, opinions, stress, and long lost family members. That is why I stand on the Bride’s team so that I can take some of that stress off of her and make it a happy and memorable day for the newly weds.
