One thing I love about the photography industry is the partnerships that can form in community with other photographers. There are niches for everyone and everything, and while I few years ago I decided big, huge, mansion weddings didn’t fit with the heart behind my craft – I absolutely love teaming up with another photographers. The heart of what I do is about supporting the other photographer, anticipating their needs and what I know will help them rest easy while herding a bridal party of 10.
It also is two fold, because I get to hone my craft, giving me more opportunities to document a story that I know will be cherished for generations – the wedding day. I exclusively photograph intimate weddings (with a guest list of 50 or less), and so my eye is always looking for intimate spots on location for future nuptials with my couples.
So when I met Elizabeth Haase on cold, January night in 2016 at a Rising Tide Society meet-up, I knew we’d be fast friends. And even better? We’re both film photographers, so as we both traverse the wedding day loading film, metering for each other and calling out readings – I can’t help but be so grateful I’ve found not only a partner to journey in this crazy business owner life, but a friend!
