As you probably know by now: I photographed my first solo wedding in 2010 at age fourteen. And while I’ve seen so(oooo) much growth in my work since then, there was one specific season in my business where my style especially changed over a short period of time. Significantly. It wasn’t that the work I was doing before was technically flawed or poor work (by any means!) … I just finally allowed my style to be a true, unique reflection of who I am.
Quite a difference, riiight?
I’ll never forget calling my friend Annamarie shortly after I photographed a wedding in the South. With dreamy Spanish Moss and incredible natural tones, my bold and saturated editing style just wasn’t working with the photos. She’d recently made the same transition in her work, and so she kindly walked me through how to desaturate my greens a bit and achieve the light & airy look the photos seemed to be begging for…
Though the change was noticeable, it still took years to truly develop into a consistent style I am confident in! A style I don’t question or falter in… a style I’ve become known for and one I truly love inside and out!
I’m so thankful for Anna and seriously it’s been amazing to watch our styles and businesses grow in the years since! It’s taken work (and lots of it) to get our light & airy styles to where they are.
Anna and I have been talking lots lately about that transition and are so excited (!!!) to finally share our secrets WITH YOU to getting a light & airy style! AHHH.
