When people hear information, they're likely to remember only 10% of that information three days later. However, if a relevant image is paired with that same information people retained 65% of the information three days later
Hmmm...that is a fun fact, isn’t it?
With this mind-blowing statistic in mind, I recently launched a photography program for small businesses and entrepreneurs called THRIVE Sessions. My mission is to help local companies have a clean, streamlined, and branded body of photographs at a reasonable price.
I‘ve decided to dedicate 2018 to put my energy and skills towards helping local businesses THRIVE by helping to document your brand, your business, your craft, your products and all that you have to offer the world.
We are living amidst the most technologically innovative period of time in history, and I am feeling more inspired than ever to collaborate with the local community to help you achieve your business goals through professional, cutting-edge imagery. I believe that creating images through community collaboration goes a lot further than buying stock images.
You deserve to be seen by the world around you, and stand out. You deserve to THRIVE. I would love to help you show the world who you are and what you do.
You maybe a store owner, visual artist, app developer, educator, restaurant, chef, interior designer, maker, life coach, tattoo artist, yogi, therapist, marketing manager, dancer, painter, NGO, jeweler.....and the list goes on.
Everyone has a story to tell and I am here to help document it.
Achieve your business goals through honest, memorable imagery. Contact me today to learn more about what the THRIVE photography program can offer you.
An estimated 84 percent of communications will be visual by 2019 – get on board!!
A TASTE OF WHAT WE CAN MAKE HAPPEN:
THRIVE SESSIONS 2018
PLEASE FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW TO LEARN MORE:
1. What do you love most about being a wedding photographer?
I love building a connection with my clients and artfully capturing one of the most important and memorable days of their lives. I love the emotional connection I experience with my clients and their families and take pride in my work. I started photographing weddings at a young age and after so much experience, I truly look at each wedding as it’s own unique entity.
2. Why do couples love working with you?
Couples love working with me because I help make them feel comfortable and at ease. They appreciate my fine art approach to wedding photography and the emotional connection I build with them leading up to their big day. My clients appreciate my light-hearted & kind yet professional approach. My client relationships are the foundation of my business. By making an honest connection, I am able to create honest photographs. True story!
3. How did you get started?
My father gifted my my first Canon AE-1 35mm film camera as a young girl. I started developing film at age 13. I was hooked on the darkroom and this new form of art that was introduced to me during some of my most developmental years. I’d always been a avid painter and artist, and photography allowed me to be creative without being so autonomous. My aunt is a wedding photographer and brought me along as a second photographer to a magnificent Guatemalan destination wedding when I was just 20 years old (2008). My first wedding had me hooked. I staged + assisted her for a summer at her studio & on location and launched my business the next summer at 22 years old in Santa Barbara (yes, I was a baby). Having grown up in Northern CA Wine Country, I made my way back to the Bay Area where my business flourished. I have been in business for almost 10 years and have built a strong foundation rooted in continuous education, community, perseverance and building meaningful client relationships.
4. What 4 words best describe your wedding photography style?
UNIQUE. PHOTOJOURNALISTIC. CREATIVE. ELEGANT.
5. What advice do you have for couples when it comes to engagement photos?
Wear clothing you feel good in! The more comfortable you are, them more natural and authentic the images will be :) Let’s work together to settle on gorgeous locations that you feel excited about.
6. What tips would you share with the couple to help the big day go smoothly?
Hire vendors that have great reviews and are communicative! I would also HIGHLY RECOMMEND doing a first look so that you can actually enjoy cocktail hour and your wedding day. I always make sure to create a romantic, sacred time for my couples to see each other for the first time. And the major benefit and getting all of the family + bridal party portraits done pre-ceremony so that everyone can enjoy the day! However, if that is not for you - we will work together to create a timeline that allows you to have the wedding you’ve always dreamed of as well as time for all of the gorgeous images as the day unfolds.
7. What is the best moment you've had as a wedding photographer?
The “best moment” I have had as a wedding photographer doesn't exist. They happen at every, single wedding. That moment when my couples see each other for the first time and tear up, that moment when fathers hug their daughters hand her over the the groom to be married, that moment when my clients tell me that I helped make their day better than they could have ever imagined. That moment where the sun is going down peeking through the oak tree's as my couples hold each other in silence. There are countless touching, real moments I’ve stored safely in my memory throughout my career.
When I was younger I thought being “too emotional” was a negative thing. Now I’ve realized that the way I feel things, helps the way I see and capture things through the lens in an authentic and truthful way.
