ASK THE PHOTOGRAPHER - WHAT IS A GOOFY PHOTOGRAPHER?
Dear Sarah, You say you are a goofy and easy going photographer. What does that mean?
Hello Curious, It means that you will spend your day with me laughing, coming up with secret inside jokes (no seriously, like 99% of my clients will laugh at a certain photo because of a private moment we had together), and "playing' rather than posing. Though my approach to photography might not seem serious, my dedication to delivering a good photo is 100% focused.
For me, photos that I love don't look overly posed or uncomfortable. I think they best way to help clients relax in front of the camera is to truly let them become themselves. I do this with a very laid back approach.
I'm often laying in the mud to get a unique angle, laughing along with my clients when something goes wrong or weird, and I 100% encourage my clients to do what feels right on the day.
After all, these are their photos... not mine. It is my work, so I am continually focused on doing my thing behind the lens to capture it in the best way possible... but I don't want people to do things that aren't "them."
It is simply my style, Curious. I like when clients can have fun, even for formal pictures.
Hope that answers your question.
PS: Nope, I won't tell you any of the inside jokes... but yes, many of the pictures I post are those specific images =)
