Jill and Greg live in Ohio and dreamt of getting married on a vineyard somewhere in California. They decided on Kunde Winery in Sonoma and I have to tell you, I’m really into their life choices. Not only their location, but the fact that there were only 40 people (I made 41!) at their wedding and it blew my freaking mind. They created the most incredible, simple and intimate environment and it changed me forever.
It was something special to be part of a 40 person wedding…on a vineyard….alone…in wine country. It was ridiculous in the most amazing way and I’ll never be the same.
I came home from that weekend feeling inspired, feeling like I want to shoot more weddings like this and connecting with more people like Jill and Greg. When people ask me how I seem to always have amazing clients who I get along with, become friends with, laugh so much with and ultimately have such a good connection with, there is only one thing I can say. They not only choose me, I choose them too.
When you can have a glass of wine with your photographer over Skype in your pajamas; when you feel 100% confident about the photos you will get; when there is trust and you can let them be who they are knowing you’re in good hands and laugh the whole way through. THAT’S when you’re each others people. I’ll never get tired of saying that.
If you’re planning your wedding right now and have something different in mind. If you want me there to document it all. Well then, grab your glass of wine and let’s talk.
