Tell us a little about your business and the services you offer:
I offer wedding and Boudoir Photography
How did you get started in the Wedding Industry?
I always loved taking pictures and one day a friend asked me if I would photograph hers.....and here we are!
What professional/industry organizations are you a member of?
Professional Photographers of America (PPA)
Joie de Vie's additional commentary: The PPA is the world’s largest nonprofit association for professional photographers. You should always ask your professionals what organizations they participate in. The PPA sets a high standard for its members and also helps them increase their knowledge of trends and creative image making.
Furthest place and/or interesting place you’ve travelled to while working on a wedding assignment?
The craziest thing you’ve ever done to get “THE SHOT”?
Jumped into a water fountain.
Joie de Vie's additional commentary: Now that is a shot!
What is your signature shot? In other words if someone saw a particular shot they would immediately relate it to your company.
Sun Flares and Jump shots
What are a few suggestions you would make to couples as they are selecting a photographer/photojournalist for their wedding?
Pick someone you LIKE! Someone you get along with because you will be able to tell in the photos.
Your thoughts on ‘first look’ photos or bride and groom photos prior to the ceremony?
I am ok with it either way my theory is it is still the FIRST time you see each other!
Your thoughts on the importance of a coordinator in the vendor team dynamic?
A coordinator is a MUST!
Something you would like to see couples do more of with their wedding photography?
Give us more time! The rushed half hour after the ceremony is not enough time to make history!
Joie de Vie's additional commentary: when mapping out the wedding day itinerary, most coordinators will build in an hour for this - hence the cocktail hour.
What are a few trends and innovations you have seen in the industry?
LOVE Trash the Dress and I LOVE Boudoir as a gift for the future husband.
Are you a blog reader? If so, what are your three favorite blogs besides the Joie de Vie blog?
Hot Pink Brides
Jasmine Star Blog
If you weren't a working in this industry, what field would you be in instead? Why?
Property Management because I am good at it.
What would we be surprised to learn about you?
I am a poker player!
Joie de Vie's additional commentary: this answer had us cracking up. We don't see her keeping a straight face as she places her bet, but we might be wrong.
Any hobbies or pastimes?
Poker, Basketball, Tennis hanging with my Family.
