So we’ve addressed the criteria I had in mind while looking for a wedding photographer. David and I wanted someone with a less formal style, that would capture amazing candid photos we love so much and wouldn’t go overboard photoshopping things afterwards. Also, a second shooter would be top of the list.
I first came across Elizabeth Kaye when she was credited on a one year anniversary shoot. As I explored her website, I was thrilled to find that not only was she close by, but I absolutely love her photography style. As I clicked through on each page of her blog I grew more and more excited. I quickly contacted her through her website and we scheduled a Skype session for the following week.
She’s clearly passionate about what she does and she keeps the bride and groom in mind at all times. Her goal is to get a flattering shot of the subject first and foremost, before grabbing the amazing shot, with the perfect background, at the perfect moment. She recognizes that it’s about us. I love this little bio about her, it hits the nail on the head.
“Elizabeth Kaye is a wedding photographer who is inspired by fashion, love, and all things feminine. She specializes in capturing women with elegance, showcasing their natural beauty. Her style is editorial but without losing the wedding’s sensitivity. As much as she encourages vogue poses, deep down, she absolutely adores a good love story.“
Elizabeth loves to participate in inspiration shoots and stays current and inspired by participating in events like the What If conferences and visiting shows such as the recent WedLuxe show that Melissa and I also visited. In fact, we almost met that day but I was rushing by and she didn’t recognize me until it was too late.
I’m so thankful that things worked out and as we Pinterest-stalk and Facebook eachother, I’m even more certain that Elizabeth is worth every penny. It feels like we’ve been friends for years. We’re so looking forward to shooting together.
I’m also beginning to brainstorm lots for the engagement session and I wonder if any of you WO readers have any suggestions for something new and out of the ordinary. Let me know what you’re thinking!
