Just 3 years ago if I heard those two works spoken together I would cringe. Shooting weddings scared me. When I shot my first wedding in 2009, I was only an assistant. Yet, I was so nervous I threw up in the bathroom before the ceremony even started. When I shot my first wedding solo, I, again, was too nervous to even present the photos and book to the Bride. I just mailed it to her. Now, I’m only scared a little of the thought of sleepless nights of editing.
I am only a year into the start of my business, Mariah Alicia Visual. Its a slow and steady process that I’m humbled to go through. With summer season approaching, I’m mentally preparing myself for the weddings I have booked this season. I’m much more comfortable shooting weddings now. Over the last few years, I’ve grown into my own and I’m not as socially awkward as I use to be (for the most part).
If you or anyone you know needs a wedding photographer, you can view more of my sample work on my website. You can also drop my a line here, or skip all that and email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org.
