Sometimes, I assist other photographers (a.k.a second shoot for them), when my studio schedule permits. And this is always such a FABULOUS opportunity and experience. What better way to spend a day then working together with a fellow portrait enthusiast; learning a thing or two, lending a tip or two, honing in on your own personal creativity + artistry, while helping + supporting a likeminded artist and their brand.
If you’re a lady (guys can give these too), you’ll probably remember getting/or giving – at least ONE of those “friends forever” lockets (or charms/bracelets/keychains etc.). You keep one, and give the other “key” (or heart; you get the idea) to your bestie. Assisting another wedding photographer is, well, sort of like that.
I have my documentation of Tana + Julie’s gorgeous, intimate, cozy backyard wedding. While the amazing Tira Paige Photography, holds on tight to her copies + documented moments. A memoir, of sorts. Like: “HEY, we came. WE shot. and WE conquered!” Each collaboration separate, but similar and fitting together in the most extraordinary way. She’ll always have her “charm” + I’ll always have “mine”. And only when they are put together, reflecting our individual, but complete works – will you see how truly beautiful this union is + was + will continue to be.
Because love – is love – is love. And I feel like ** one ** of the luckiest girls in the world for not only being able to celebrate with Tana + Julie, but to have CAPTURED (some) of it.
** Full disclaimer: Tana wore a totally sweet, glittery, classy, simple pair of JLO pumps down the aisle – I couldn’t get enough of these and spent some extra free time before the ceremony started having a little creative fun posing these in various positions, and lighting! I took A LOT of photos of these pumps. You’ve been warned! : )
Meet TIRA! She’s great. 🙂
Shoe rant. DONE!
Tana surprised Julie with the sweetest slideshow as part of her pre-wedding gift!
love wins. . .
Thank you for inviting me in + sharing your most precious, private moments, and love with me!
