That’s a big deal. So how do you choose the right photographer to trust with such a task and why is Michelle Day Photography your answer? Keep on reading:
Find what you love to do, do it, and you’ll never work a day in your life. I used to think this was just a dream for the average person. Not anymore. I have made it my reality. I am extremely passionate about photography and most importantly, about weddings. I feel blessed and truly thankful everyday that I am 150% in love with my career and that I get to do what I love. There is something magical that happens at a wedding. A sense of mystery as the day unfolds. I get to witness the true and raw emotion the day offers and capture those fleeting moments to be revisited and relived again and again. You have this wonderful, beautiful love story that is truly and uniquely YOURS. As a Photographer, I want to tell that story through my imagery, not just capture “pretty portraits.” Your images should reflect who you are as individuals and more importantly, who you are together. I believe firmly that what you do in life should be an extension of who you are. Photography is just that for me and the passion I have for it shows in the stories my images tell.
I tell each and every couple I work with “it is not just the quality of the work that you are booking when you choose a wedding photographer, it is the person as well. Find the right balance of each and you’ve found your match!” It’s much like marriage in a sense! Your wedding photographer is with you each and every step of the way throughout the big day, witnessing some of your most intimate and personal moments as the day unfolds. The last thing you want is to be stressed on your wedding day because you are uncomfortable. Booking a photographer with the right personality will allow you to have a carefree and easy going wedding day. As your Wedding Photographer, I work very organically, working with you to create beautiful, lasting, natural portraits you can be proud of. Plus, I’m pretty fun, relaxed and casual. Stress free!
Experience! You want your photographer to be experienced, not just doing this as a side job or a weekend warrior! This is your wedding afterall! It doesn’t matter how long a person has been photographing if they’ve never done a single wedding in their entire career. Weddings require special attention when it comes to photography. An experienced photographer knows what it takes to get the shots that matter AND to capture them in beauty and style. I have been professionally photographing weddings for nearly 4 years now, photographing 20+ weddings each season in Buffalo, Rochester, and Western New York. Not only does experience play a part in the quality of your images, it is necessary to know the ins and outs of a wedding day so the important moments are captured and not missed and those little but big moments that take place that you may not notice are captured as well.
