If you were to ask me what my one goal is when I meet a client, I wouldnít tell you that itís to book the gig. This is, of course, one of my goals, but not the main one.
My main goal is to get to know them. To become friends with them.
I measure my success with a client in if I feel like I can hug them at the end of our meeting. No, really.
I want to be friends with every single person I come into contact with. Even if they donít book me.
I want to be friends with you.
This is Audrey and Eric, one of my wedding couples from fall of last year. They. Are. Awesome.
From the very beginning, shooting Audrey and Eric never felt like the typical photographer-photographee relationship. I felt like I had known them for years, and I was SO comfortable with them. We joked around, we giggled, we took silly pictures. And then, months after their wedding, we shot their bridal/groomal session. And it felt exactly the same.
I knew that bubbles would fit this couple perfectly, and it did. We ran, we jumped, we played with bubbles, we climbed trees, we played in the river. This couple simply exudes happiness and brightness, and I knew I had to show you that through their pictures.
At the end of their wedding last year, Audrey told me that someone had asked her if we were long-time friends. Audrey told them no, but that she wished we were.
I have never in my entire life been so flattered. Thank you, Audrey & Eric. Letís stay friends.
