Traci: “What is the absolute best thing about your Beloved? What would they say about you?”
Dewie: “She has a heart of gold and is always happy, never gets angry and is so very patient and loving with everyone she meets. She’s never shy and can hold a conversation about anything with anyone! She’ll give all that she is to everyone she meets. She’s pretty much perfect. She would probably say mostly the same thing I’m sure.”
When I first met Elizabeth and Dewie, their mutual adoration echoed Dewie’s online questionnaire. Their tone is never anything but positive and supportive every time they talk about each other. It’s easy to see why they adore each other too…their laid-back, easy going personalities are hard for anyone not to fall in love with. I am so glad that these two found me on Fearless Photographers and booked me for their autumn wedding. Being photographers themselves, they really understand that the most organically beautiful images are created when you trust your photographer, embrace the unexpected and most importantly, are willing to try anything.
Traci: “Why am I the right photographer for you guys?”
Dewie: “I love your use of lighting and your unconventional style. We both have a strong dislike for the stereotypical, chest wedding style photo. We love different and will push boundaries and I think you can do that.”
Trust is SO important when you are choosing your photographer and working through your sessions. Trust gives your images an edge. Trust allows me to tell your story with an artistic touch. Trust can MAKE the photo. Elizabeth and Dewie’s wedding took place at her sister’s stately home in historic Asheboro and she planned to get dressed for the occasion in a quaint room within the house. Prior the wedding, Elizabeth walked me around the grounds and when I spotted a small grove, surrounded by established trees and beautiful foliage, I knew we had found ourselves a new dressing room. I shared my idea with Elizabeth and she had no hesitation, resulting in unique, one-of-a-kind “getting ready” photographs.
Elizabeth and Dewie are so easy going that embracing the unexpected, like some pretty strong wind at their outdoor wedding, comes naturally to them. It is always so much fun to shoot couples with this mindset. This attitude has a way of seeping into everyone at the wedding, creating an environment that is simply fun and happy, a big celebration of the love of two exceptional people.
One of my favorite things about Elizabeth and Dewie is that throughout everything, they never hesitated to do anything. It can be easy to blow off your romance session at the end of your wedding, but sticking to it will pay off. When I pulled Elizabeth and Dewie aside to do their romance session, we decided to walk downtown where a Fall Festival was in full swing. Elizabeth and Dewie enthusiastically jumped fences, broke into a carnival and snuck onto rides, never giving any reluctance. The prize for their fearlessness? We got some seriously heart-stopping images at the carnival…in the fun house…on the ferris wheel. These would have never been possible without their attitude to go along with anything.
Traci: “What is the coolest thing about your wedding?”
Dewie: “Us! We’ve chosen everything together.”
Dewie is absolutely right – the coolest thing about their wedding was Elizabeth and Dewie themselves. They made the day. Congrats to a very cool couple!
