Well, I guess you can see by how little I have posted lately that we are in wedding & portrait season again and things are very busy! I love this time of year! I am blessed to have such wonderful clients to work with every year. I recently photographed Terry & Sheri-Lynn’s engagement session in early spring followed by their wedding just a couple of weekends ago up at Deerhurst Resort in Huntsville.
Terry & Sheri-Lynn are such a fun-loving couple & were truly so wonderful to work with. We hit it off immediately. An important part of finding the right photographer for your wedding is to be sure that you actually get along with him or her. This will really impact how your photographs turn out from your wedding day. You want to find a photographer whose work you love & someone who you also connect with on a personal level. If you are not comfortable with your wedding photographer, it will be difficult to get amazing photographs of your wedding day, and more importantly it will also impact the enjoyment of your day. If you are relaxed and enjoying the process and have built a trusting relationship with you photographer in the meetings & events leading up to your wedding day, the result will be an amazing collection of natural, beautiful & real photographs filled with honest emotion that truly capture the story of your day.
I photograph 15-20 amazing weddings per year. It is the right number of weddings for me and allows me to truly connect with all of my couples. I want to be sure that each of my couples receives this high level of personalized service that my studio is known for throughout the entire creative process from initial meetings, engagement sessions and planning consultations to wedding day photography as well as the delivery of final albums.
Many of my wedding clients both from the area and beyond have become friends over the years and have been back to have their families & children photographed. I just photographed the second newborn recently of another wonderful couple whose wedding I photographed seven years ago! I truly love getting to photograph these milestones in my client’s lives and building wonderful & lasting relationships with them.
I am also lucky to have had the same second photographer now for four years in a row. Amber Larmant is a graduate of the Creative Photography Program at Humber College and has worked with my studio since her graduation. Many of you will have already met Amber either at your wedding or here in my studio. She also does all of my post-production work & designs our fabulous albums for all of our clients. I work very closely with my clients throughout the entire creative process including the design process of image selection for their wedding albums. I then consult with Amber and she begins designing the wedding album. Doing our album design in-house also ensures that our client’s wedding story is beautifully laid out & that the design style is is consistent with our brand & aesthetic. It is truly a collaborative process & we will work with you every step of the way. Thanks for everything over the past four years Amber! You are an integral part of our studio!
Amber captured some fun images of me at Terry & Sheri-Lynn’s wedding and I just had to share them. It’s not often that I have photographs of myself. I LOVE these images…you can’t tell at all that I LOVE my job & my amazing clients! 😉 Such fun images! Thank you Amber!

I am already booking 2014 weddings and can take a few more fall 2013 wedding bookings this year for those of you who are recently engaged and still in the planning stages.
Have a wonderful day!
