You’re getting married! Congratulations!
Hiring the right wedding photographer is one of the most important parts of planning your wedding. Your wedding photos are often the only thing you have to remember your special day year after year. You will show them to your kids and your grandkids and often when you pass away wedding photos are the photos families keep. Weddings can be one of the most difficult subjects to photograph because there are so many factors that are out of your control. As the owner and lead photographer at Bella Luma Photography I have been photographing weddings since 2006 and assisting before that. I have fixed dresses, bustled in a pinch, caught a falling cake and worked in the rain. Often times I am guiding the bride and groom throughout the wedding because it’s their first time and I have been front and center for so many.
Why I love photographing weddings…
I began as an assistant while in college to a wedding photographer but never intended to do so myself. I was going to be a famous photojournalist (what can I say, I was young). The thing is I hated the media and loved the weddings! Your wedding day is one of the biggest events of your life and I feel honored to be a part of it. There is so much love and happiness during a wedding and I love the anticipation the bride and groom waiting to see each other. You may catch me tearing up during your wedding because I am genuinely happy for you. I love capturing the emotions and moments of your wedding day. I have photographed other subjects but weddings are my favorite.
