What are the Benefits of Having Two Photographers?

What are the Benefits of Having Two Photographers?

Thankfully it's more common now than a few years ago, but having a second photographer at your wedding is of the most important and overlooked pieces of wedding planning.

Sweet & Romantic Washington Vineyard Wedding

Sweet & Romantic Washington Vineyard Wedding

I’m often asked if I’ve ever worked for a really mean client. And honest to God, I say never! I bring this up because Kristina and Tyler are 1000% the example of what my clients ARE like. Because my clients aren’t just nice or caring, they go above and beyond in these categories. Arriving to a Wedding, already with pressure on your shoulders, with to two big hearted people greeting and thanking you before you’ve even snapped a picture is the greatest gift I can receive as a photographer. I can’t say enough amazing things about this kind and wonderful couple, and I know it’s in their nature to return the favor.

Vendor Highlight: Lane' Bigsby of Something Borrowed

On Friday I had the honor of sitting down with Lane' Bigsby of Something Borrowed PDX at her warehouse and asking her my biggest questions for renting furniture and details for upcoming weddings. We talked about the renting process, the biggest wedding trends, and advice she has for couples planning their own 2017 and 2018 weddings. 

Planning My Own Future Wedding

Planning My Own Future Wedding

I'm often asked what I have in mind for my own wedding day. "You see a lot of weddings, and probably know exactly what you want, right?" The truth is, I really don't know! Sure, there are some things I'd love to make sure I include, but I don't really have an actual plan. Where would I get married? Would it be small or big? What time of the year would it be? Who would I hire to be MY photographer?
