Weddings are special in many ways. It’s a common place for people to meet and connect. I think it’s great because it’s a time of celebration, everyone is in a good mood and everyone is also looking their best! When we ask couples how they met, weddings is an answer that we’ve received many times.

Behind the scenes, many situations can arise during wedding planning season or when you’re planning for a photo shoot. Most people just see the end results which are beautiful photos and to most people, everything looks easy. But, if you’ve prepared for a shoot before or if you’ve experienced a session with us, there are many surprising things that happen.

Gems are precious because they’re rare. Gems are valuable because they’re hard to find. And every gem is special because there’s nothing else like it… every single one of them are unique. Isn’t love like that too? Love is not easy to find and the love you have between you and your significant other is like no other relationship that exists and there never will be.

I usually begin a blog post with something that we LOVE about our job. But, to be honest, there are things that we don’t like too. One of them is that our job is very dependent on weather… Oy! How things would be different if it wasn’t. I dread checking the weather forecast a few days before a shoot because I don’t want to see what it has to tell me.

Knowing that God is an all knowing, omnipotent God, I know and trust that there’s no such thing as “coincidence” or “accident”. Everything has a reason… every encounter we have has a purpose. Sometimes we feel like that we will never meet someone ever again or have any relation to that individual, but you know what?

Over the last decade through our business, we have really been blessed to meet many new people through weddings, meetings and all sorts of gatherings. When you shoot one wedding, it’s like a chain reaction of people that you get to encounter and shoot their weddings too!

Many people ask us how we get our clients… they ask how much we invest in social media ads and any other marketing tools. Yes, we are active on social media, yes, we sometimes run ads, and yes, sometimes we make the right connections. Marketing is crucial in any business; however, we have found that no advertisement beats a satisfied customer.

They say, “the third time’s the charm.” But, how many of you know that that’s not true? It’s actually, the fourth time. ;) I applaud Meredith + Patrick’s patience because we had to reschedule their engagement session FOUR times! I know…. crazy, right?

Do you guys remember one of our fav couples, Rhandi + Jon? We shot their wedding at Callanwolde less than 2 years ago… it was featured in a couple of magazines and even on the cover of a magazine as well. We had magazine reps fighting over exclusivity of their wedding… it was crazy!

How do I even describe this engagement shoot? Epic? Fabulous? Stellar? If you have a better adjective, please do share because I think any word would be an understatement of how these images turned out. Daniela + Paul rented out the Ventanas for their shoot and wow, it was so worth it.
