Today I started on my journey to create a Conceptual Photography Series dedicated to those who have experienced or know someone who has experienced Anxiety or Depression.


Here is my first image to begin my project.


'Trying to Breath'


" They tell me to breath deeply... just breath it will be ok.. I hear them.... My chest is tight but I try to breath in and out but I do not feel better.. I am suffocating. " Big thank you to the amazing Charly Jane for helping me bring this image and idea to life as it is something that means alot to me.

A little about Wedding Photography

Hi all.


Are you looking for a Wedding photographer but have no idea where to start regarding your search?


Articles have been going around social media lately regarding a disgruntled bride on the professionalism and quality of her chosen wedding photographer's services. Through this I wanted to share some advice with you all.


I understand many of you are displeased by the price of a Wedding photographer.. as truthfully some of us aren't very cheap or 'reasonable' in our prices. However, there are reasons why Wedding photographers charge the amount they do. This can vary from their experience photographing weddings, the equipment they use and the services they provided for their clients.


Some photographers can carry over $15,000 worth of photography gear and often work 60-hour weeks. (It takes several full days just to edit the 100s of images from each wedding)

Add insurance, taxes, software, advertising, albums, repair, shipping, and studio expenses, and many photographers end up making less than minimum wage for the first few years of their career.


In saying this not every 'expensive or well known photographer' is right for you and not every 'reasonably priced photographer' is the one who should be photographing your wedding.


So who should you choose??


When looking for the right photographer there are many things you can do to help you with your decision.


*Look at the photographers wedding portfolio. Don't just look at the quality or number of weddings they have photographed, look at the style (ask yourself does this style suit me).. does the photographer have different styles that portray the character of their clients or do they only offer a certain style or pose preference etc.


**Look at reviews made by clients of the work that photographer provided.


***Meet with the photographer.. the meeting is not just so you can discuss package pricing. This meeting is to see if the photographer can provide what you want and need on your special day. This is also a chance to see if you 'click' with the photographer. Do you feel comfortable with them? Do you like their manner, their professionalism?


****Questions to ask your photographer:


Ask the photographer about their equipment or how long they have been photographing weddings. Your photographer needs professional equipment to capture your wedding day to the quality it deserves.


How many photos do I get?

Most wedding photographers typically deliver 50-100 photos for every hour of coverage they provide. Four hundred photos may seem like a lot, but your wedding photographer is preserving all those little details and the moments of your big day. (Imagine how long they will take your photographer to process.. this is why their packages are priced a certain way)


How far in advance should I book a wedding photographer?

Many in-demand wedding photographers book weddings at over a year in advance. As it gets closer to your wedding date, it will be harder to book your first-choice photographer.

f your favorite photographer is unavailable on your date, don't panic. Ask them for recommendations — they may know someone with a similar style or a lighter schedule.


Your wedding day is important and very special.


You want to choose the photographer that suits you, your style and makes you and your family feel comfortable and enjoy your amazing day.


If any of you want to share this advice or to chat further you are more then welcome to.


Regards

Jess
