Where are you based out of? Ormond Beach, Florida

Are you currently a part-time or full-time photographer?
Full Part-Time (which means not 40 hours a week, but as much work as I can handle while also being a wife and mother of 4 littles)

What is your predominant photographic specialization? Wedding Photography

What camera(s) do you currently shoot with? Canon 5D Mark III

How would you define your style?  

Fine Art | Editorial | Romance

What motivated you to become a photographer?
My passion is all about sharing messages through imagery.

Throughout my college studies in Communications, I was most intrigued with interpersonal and visual communications. The idea of connecting with people through visual messages completely resonates with me.

As soon as I began studying photography, I couldn’t stop. An obsession was born. Every night I stayed up late learning to harness light, angles, and aesthetics to create something beautiful.

For me, work has to be meaningful, more than just “clocking in” every day. The technical side of photography is simply a means to a more personal end. My career began with family portraits, but after second shooting my first wedding – I fell in love.

What is it that you try to convey with your work?
My hope is to create a fine art and editorial aesthetic that is customized to each couple.

Capturing the beauty in every little moment – her grace, his charm, her blush, his dimples. From the bridal gown choice to the wedding favors, couples tell a story with their style choices.

How do you accomplish that?
I do my best to unearth their couple identity through the consultation, our online conversations, and the engagement portraits. I have them fill out a couple questionnaire to help me in this discovery process as well. The wedding prep form also gives me a sense of their artistic direction.

Then, on the wedding day, I do my best to filter the details (invitation suite, gown, florals, beauty choices, etc.) to solidify their overall aesthetic. I will then make styling and posing choices based on that feeling.

I picture the day in a magazine spread, or their album, and do my best to style and create a full collection of imagery that embodies their unique brand of love.

What do you do during a session or wedding day to help make your clients feel comfortable?
My clients look best on camera when they trust me. Building this trust can be tricky! I feel this happens by giving couples (and their family and bridal party) as much warm, genuine, and kind communication as possible. I always try to remember how awkward it can feel with a big camera pointed in my direction.

They need to know I have their best interest at heart, and that I’m using flattering angles. They also need to know that I believe they are beautiful and so valued. I do my best to find authentic ways to compliment and encourage, like gushing over her sparkling eyes or affirming when he nails that smolder.

I always begin with action poses that are easy for everyone. For instance, walking while holding hands and looking at each other. Then, we move less and pose a little more as they become more comfortable. I carefully talk them into cozy poses and test their readiness by how quickly they kiss. It’s all about that trust.

Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?
So many photographers have been on this journey with me, inspiring me in different ways.

I have my girl bosses that have me fangirl all over their marketing and business acumen. I really resonate with Kaitlin James and her approach to business. She is all about making it personal, authentic, and a rich client experience.

Then, I have those photographers who inspire me to push myself artistically. It may be cliché, but Jose Villa and Elizabeth Messina were my original fine art inspiration when I was honing my style. So many try to replicate their work, but they will always be the real deal. Jose knows how to turn a local dune into an exotic desert location. Elizabeth knows how to capture the essence of a woman, her soul. All of this is done with consistency and originality. Incredible.

What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?
I still remember the feeling of that first published wedding. It was actually my first wedding, but I didn’t submit it for 6 months because I was way too scared. It was a gorgeously crafted day with a couple who I still adore. When Style Me Pretty picked it up for publication, I totally freaked out.

Since then, I’ve loved seeing my couples featured on blogs and in magazines. I feel like a proud momma, seeing them on display where other brides can find inspiration.

Shooting a wedding in Bermuda in 2017 was pretty amazing too. My bride was incredible and it was an absolute dream experience.

What is one important lesson you have learned during your career?
I have learned to foster growth at every stage in business.

There are always ways to improve systems and the overall experience for our clients. Scheduling time where I step away to analyze the business, apart from emotion. Those weaknesses surface and that is so important. It’s easy to become complacent or frustrated with clients. When that happens, there is usually something I can do better to avoid or minimize future problems.

Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?
I looked so long and hard for gorgeous fabric boxes that matched my branding and coordinated with my beautiful album line.

Photographer Supply Co. was the perfect fit!

I’m so grateful that my clients can receive their images in such luxury packaging.

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?
Photographer Supply Co. creates packaging that “wows” my target demographic. I’m not naturally great with packaging and those kinds of details. So, partnering with a company who excels in this area allows my business to shine!

How has packaging elevated your brand?
When clients see attention to detail and that you care about them from start to finish, that matters. They feel valued and will then share that experience with their friends. Word-of-mouth marketing has always been my primary source of referrals. This can only continue as I pour into these couples, creating an unforgettable experience. Photographer Supply Co. partners with me in that effort. I am so grateful!

PHOTOGRAPHER SPOTLIGHT | THE COLOUR EVE

Eve_Headshot-2Name: Eve Byers

Business Name: The Colour Eve

Website: www.thecoloureve.com

Instagram: @thecoloureve

Where are you based out of? Melbourne, Australia

Are you currently a part-time or full-time photographer? Part-time

What is your predominant photographic specialization? Couples / Weddings

What camera(s) do you currently shoot with? Sony A7sii

How would you define your style? Dark and earthy.

What motivated you to become a photographer?
I’m terrible at telling stories in person so this was the only way I knew how to communicate how I was feeling. I was also really inspired by how my subjects change when they are in the natural world with nature as my constant muse. I actually create wedding films as well, so professionally it grew from that.

What is it that you try to convey with your work?
Authenticity and raw honesty.

How do you accomplish that?
I love it when the people in my photos or video can just be and move how they want to. I’m not there to tell them how to feel or what to do. My job is capture how they are in that exact time and place, with nature being the supporting environment for that to take place. I’ve noticed people feel more at ease in the natural world. I guess this is where the realness comes from.

What do you do during a session or wedding day to help make your clients feel comfortable?
I find that clients feel most comfortable when we’ve met and got to know one another before an event has taken place. It’s kinda awkward I think, showing up to be part of someone’s special day and never knowing who they are as a couple or even if you’re a right fit for them (and vice versa!). Even if it’s just a Skype call or two, the more comfortable they are, the more likely they’ll open up and let me in.

Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?
Quite a few and all so different!
Gregory Crewdson has always been my main inspiration for my work since forever. The amount of production that goes into his photography is phenomenal. I find myself lost in his work for ages, trying to figure out what exactly is going on. There’s something romantic about the poignant nature of it.

There are local wedding photographers too that I think have beautiful work such as Joel from Barefoot and Bearded and Fabio Oliveira.

What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?
I’m still learning so it really feels like there are tiny accomplishments with every project.
I guess more recently, winning best documentary at the Peninsula Film Festival. That got ticked off the bucket list!

What is one important lesson you have learned during your career?
That being a good human is more important than making sure you have the latest and most expensive camera technology. It doesn’t really matter if you’re not so good at the business side of things or if you’re slightly socially awkward (like me). What matters is making people feel good, being empathetic and doing great work for them in every step of the process.

Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?
The dark wooden USB’s and USB boxes.

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?
They’ve made those tiny touches really unique. I used to send my video’s and photographs via dropbox – It wasn’t very romantic at all! I thought my couples deserved something a little better and how exciting it must be to receive them packaged so thoughtfully and beautifully. I’ve also started to customize the top with handwritten names of the couples I’m sending it to. They go perfectly with little hessian drawstring bags.

How has packaging elevated your brand?
The dark wood actually goes really well with the dark and earthy tones used in my work. That natural element gets carried through to the end. It’s something I’d choose for myself so I know that my couples will love it too!

PHOTOGRAPHER SPOTLIGHT : KENNI VIAL

Business Name: Kenni Vial

Website: www.kennivial.com

Where are you based out of? Beaverton/Portland Oregon

Are you currently a part-time or full-time photographer? Part-time

What is your predominant photographic specialization? Wedding/Couples

What camera(s) do you currently shoot with? Nikon D3

How would you define your style?
My style tends to gravitate towards a lighter and brighter look. Living in the PNW my surrounding colors are green. Lots and lots of green!

 

 

What motivated you to become a photographer?
My husband started doing sports photography for our University and our friends started asking us to take their engagement and family pictures. After we graduated we didn’t do much at all with photography for a few years. About the time my 3rd baby was born I was looking for a creative outlet so I started taking more pictures of my kids! As I posted pictures to my social media my friends started asking me to do take their pictures and it snowballed from there. I’ve been very blessed to have a lot of support from the beginning.

What is it that you try to convey with your work?
Love. It’s such a cliche, but it’s true. I want people to be happy when they look at my photos. If you see love you feel happy whether you know the subject in the photo or not.

How do you accomplish that?
It’s all about the comfort for my subjects and for me my weapon to get people happy is to make stupid jokes. They’re usually jokes poking fun of myself that gets them laughing the most and more comfortable with me in general. If I can get the couple or families laughing at me then they’re laughing together and laughter means happy and if they’re happy they’re comfortable.

Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?
I’ve always loved Ansel Adams from the beginning. He had such a way of capturing the beauty of things in the simplicity of black and white It’s amazing! My friend that has sort of mentored me over the years, Brinn with Almira B Photography, has always been an inspiration to see work and then see her work. She makes the most simple shots beautiful and is never afraid to try something completely new and different. She’s all about pushing the limits, I love that.

What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?
Probably the first wedding my husband and I shot together. It was a family friend and we basically ended up paying to do it. She asked us to fly to San Diego and we were so excited to be a part of something that important. I was still so inexperienced, but we killed it. I was so proud of us, we poured in three full days of shooting between the bridals, wedding, and two receptions. Even after editing I put together a video for them, which I’d never done before (and haven’t done since haha) and for being so new to it all I was so happy with how it all turned out and the best part was the couple was beyond thrilled! They felt so important and they saw how hard we worked. It really put a spark in me that what I did, even if financially it wasn’t worth it, the response and love we got in return and how proud we were of our work ourselves was so wonderful.

What is one thing you have learned during your career?
To do what works best for me. It’s been tricky waters to navigate being a mom of 4 full time and trying to do add in photography without becoming too overwhelmed with the tasks for both sides. I love getting suggestions or reading what works for other photographers to see what could work better for me and that helps a lot, but in the end, I’m only part-time and ‘finding the balance’ is real. I do my best with what I can do right now and I’ve had some amazing clients and many of whom return for whatever next important milestone is in their lives and I love that. Over the years I’ve gotten a lot of support and feeling of community with my little gig and it’s been a real blessing for me.

Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?
Right now I’ve been using the wooden USBs’ and the coordinating wooden magnet lid boxes. They’ve been so beautiful and my clients are always so impressed with the extra thought of the packaging.

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?
The products that I’ve used from PSCo have been my all time favorite. You can’t beat the price and the quality. It doesn’t feel cheap and I love that, plus you can create whatever feel you like with the products.

PHOTOGRAPHER SPOTLIGHT | BOKEH STUDIO

Name: Abhishek & Payal Patel

Business Name: Bokéh Studios

Website: www.iambokeh.com

Where are you based out of? Chicago, Illinois

Are you currently a part-time or full-time photographer? Part-time photographers

What is your predominant photographic specialization? Weddings and Engagements

What camera(s) do you currently shoot with?  Canon 5D Mark III

How would you define your style?
We would define our style as lifestyle photography for weddings and engagements. It’s candid, yet done so with some direction and styling and it also has an approachable feel and a relaxed result. We also like to capture candid and spontaneous photos of people, décor and the action as well! We look for intimate spaces for portraits and prefer to learn about the couple prior to their wedding day so that the interactions the day of are seamless, which ultimately enables us to create lifelong moments.

 

What motivated you to become a photographer?
We got our start in photography after being avid photographers at events, family outings and just enthusiasts, which eventually led to an opportunity shooting a friend’s engagement photos in Chicago. Since then, we’ve grown into a full studio specializing in weddings, however, we also capture occasional family sessions.

What is it that you try to convey with your work?
We know how important a couple’s day is. And we know how important it is to trust your photographer or videographer. You get one shot at this—it’s important to do it right. We are here to guide couple’s through the process and we love getting to know people, what’s important to you, how you met, etc. Getting to know the couple’s story allows us to incorporate their personalities into their event and make their images unique.

How do you accomplish that?
Telling a special story is a gift and an art we cherish. Through our passion for creativity, we uniquely capture couple’s stories about one of the biggest days of their life: their wedding day. We thrive on building relationships with our couples through our recognizable photography and videography so we can showcase their distinctive personalities. When you work with Bokéh Studios we tailor their experience to fit their vision. Create your own story is our tagline.

Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?
We have been very fortunate enough to watch our friend’s photography businesses’ grow throughout the years so that has helped alleviate any major struggles. We have spent an exquisitely long amount of time behind the lens, but our initial love of the camera came from getting our own photos taken by remarkable photographers that have all turned into great mentors and friends and helped us turn into a successful wedding photography and videography business.

What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?
Our years of dedication to the art of professional photography and videography has been noticed and awarded on national and international levels. We’ve been featured in the Daily Herald, Gay Bride Guide, Wedding Guide Chicago, Borrowed & Blue, Love + Wander, Windy City Media Group, The Big Fat Indian Wedding and more!

What is one thing you have learned during your career?
Chicago is a strong and vibrant city and provides a great starting point for remote businesses, however, it is a very competitive landscape. There are a lot of very talented photographers that vie for the same attention when seeking potential couples, but there is a lot of opportunities to learn and grow. The architecture and history of the city also provide a great landscape for capturing the essence of what it means to live in an opportunistic area and there are also many big businesses and small businesses to connect and collaborate with.

Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?
We use the wooden 4GB and 8GB USBs!

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?
We wanted to provide our clients with a unique offering with our USBs and Photographer Supply Company were able to deliver the perfect solution. We can’t wait to share our client’s photos with these!

How To Build, Grow, and Maintain a Brand | Laura Morsman Photography

When Photographer’s Supply Co. asked me to share my perspective on How To Build, Grow, and Maintain a Brand, it was honestly the first time I had ever sat down and considered what made my own brand or how it came to be what it is today. How did this business grow from a place that felt like it wasn’t going anywhere at all 3 years ago, when each Instagram post gave me an anxiety attack worrying about how it would be perceived and considering the task of building a clientele, into something that keeps us constantly on the go and connecting with people not just where we live but all around the United States?

 

Brands are as unique as each person is. Different in their own way, different in ways that can’t be replicated, and sometimes can be, sometimes even mimicked. What works for me may not work for you, or anyone else, and that’s the beauty of an authentic brand. There are some bottom line suggestions that err on the side of business strategy, but so much more of what I’m about to share has to do with anchoring down on knowing yourself, knowing your people, and combining the two to create a space where people just want to BE a part of your brand.

 

Let’s get started!

 

Brand Identity is YOUR identity
Your tone in social media IS YOU to your followers and clients whether they have met you in person or not. Combining your true voice with whatever level of filter of professionalism or non-professionalism can truly impact the type of clientele or followers to your brand. Making that choice by refining what verbiage, wording, tone, perspective, and emotion that is shared through your brand will influence and truly impact the audience you find gravitating towards you. Keeping this in mind when sharing to any social media platform really helps in communicating the soul and personality behind your brand.
Be AUTHENTIC
People want to hear YOU, which is hard to differentiate when you’re sitting there asking yourself “should I say what THEY want me to say like something on trend and widely used, or a current event quip…or should I say what I would actually say.” That is totally up to you, and neither answer is right or wrong, maybe both are right. As long as it’s communicated through your authentic voice, that’s the important part!

 

I don’t think following do’s or don’t’s for yourself is the way to go when approaching your audience or using your voice. Trial and error are definitely how I found myself taking a step back and seeing the audience that were naturally attracted to my content and who wasn’t. Some things worked, some things didn’t, but for my own business, the hardest lesson for me then and now is to accept that people genuinely liked hearing more about my personal perspective and life, rather than listening to me horribly attempt to be overly trendy with social media verbiage or popular subjects.

 

Ask yourself the type of media/blogger/business/brand that you like to follow or find yourself gravitating towards. Is it the uplifting yet sarcastic writer who can laugh at themselves and make you feel hopeful about even the hardest days, or is it the consistently volatile person who is constantly negative but has a great sense of humor? Maybe it’s a stay at home mom, maybe it’s an ethically focused fashion designer. Either way, they both have an audience and attract a specific follower that gains something from their content.
COMMUNICATION is Key
Your clients are your people, or the ones that stand behind your work truly want to be. They don’t want to have a sterile, holier than thou professional telling them what they are “allowed and not allowed” to do, to wear, to go, to be. They want a genuine and clear direction from someone who is open to questions, flexible, and possible special requests that you can work on together to achieve if possible if it fits their needs. These photos are in fact for them, not you, depending on the type of photography you find yourself focusing on.
Be TIMELY
Timely responses to inquiries make such an incredible difference in the credibility and dependability of your brand and business. This was definitely one of my weak points and down the line, I had to end up investing in a personal assistant for this task alone! With the amount of time I am out on location doing photo shoots, I come home and am either in total catch up mode with edits, and can possibly get to a handful of emails/IG messages/FB message, but when you know you need someone to step in and manage your communications for you, it’s one of the best investments you could make for your own sanity and your business’s livelihood. The shorter of response time you have to an inquiring client, the fewer clients you’ll lose when they look elsewhere after waiting for your reply. I’ve been there myself and when I was able to add in an assistant’s wage to my budget, I went for it!
Be CONSISTENT
Consistency in the delivery of your products, in your communication style/tone, and the consistency in the quality of what you are delivering to your clients truly matters. As business owners, we know this, but during the busiest seasons, there can be some waning in standards if you get overwhelmed. We all go through this at times.

 

Imagine going to your favorite coffee spot to grab your daily sips. If they made your drink perfectly for 3 weeks in a row, you’ve developed trust that they are making what you love, you trust that it will taste the same each time, and it makes your day that much better. Now imagine one day you go in, so stoked for your coffee, and they hand you a cup of something vaguely familiar, but not your drink, and not what you anticipated. They wavered on their delivery, in turn causing waves in your trust with what was usually the perfect start to your day, and possibly even questioning their amount of attention to you, and their customer service.

 

With the coffee analogy, I feel like we can directly correlate that with our brand and how our audience is anticipating our consistency, whether they realize it or not.

 

Your loyal clients and followers love coming back to your feed, your photos, your YOU because they love you and look forward to hearing your perspective and always seeing what you will be up to next. Of course, brands will ebb and flow with the tide and flex and change as they live on, but be sure to hone in on what is making your people keep coming back for more, and do.more.that.
Final Thoughts on Brand Building
One of the hardest things for myself when starting a business was to realize that when I started photographing full time, it was truly a business and needed to be treated as one. This didn’t mean losing passion or giving any creativity up, but rather to think like a business owner in parts of the brand and business that before launching full-time, I didn’t think of quite as much.

 

Branding, marketing myself, presentation, and confidence behind the brand all came together as I saw that what I was making was bringing people in. It took ME to convince myself that it was worth working for and my photos were worth purchasing.

 

Before you have a crowd around you, following you, subscribe to you, you must be your own cheerleader. As it’s said, “if you don’t believe in you, who will?”. That fake it ’till you make it mentality was honestly what kick started me in my career. Moving forward with the notion that you’re already successful, you’re already growing and growing as a brand and a career. That positivity and motivation within you will, in turn, make you work to reach that mentality.

 

Start before you are ready, don’t wait for perfection before you hit the go button on your brand or career. It’s going to be pliable at times, where you change the feel of it or change the look, allow yourself to make those changes!

 

Failure is given the most negative of connotations, but can actually be the best thing that could happen to aide in the process of building a brand. If you never had proof that something worked, or didn’t, you may be functioning your brand in a way that truly isn’t working, but you may never know until it proves itself to be in fact, not working. Embrace failure/re-starts/clean slate as a chance to get what you’ve worked so hard on and to make it even fuller, even brighter!

 

Invite change in. Embrace it. You never know how it could positively impact you unless you open your mind. Be vulnerable to change, and grow from that.

 

Happy Branding!

Photographer Spotlight | Aanna Chase Photography

Business Name:   Aanna Chase Photography
Website:   www.aannachasephotography.com
Where are you based out of?   Chicago, IL
Are you currently a part-time or full-time photographer?   Full-time photographer
What is your predominant photographic specialization?    Weddings, Engagements, Families
What camera(s) do you currently shoot with?    Canon 5D Mark III

 

How would you define your style?
My style is founded on story-telling–an intentional balance between refined and classic as well as candid and journalistic, all working together to encompass the unique milestones and personalities involved. I strive to create fresh, bright, and invigorating photographs–in both emotion and aesthetics. I am constantly exploring and embracing minimalism, intriguing depths of field, and emotive light.

What motivated you to become a photographer?
When I was 7 years old, my parents gifted me with a tape recorder (yes, a cassette tape recorder!). It was then my aim to document life in my home. An ongoing narration. When I was 12 years old, I spent my carefully saved money on a digital camera and took my story-telling to a new level. I created visuals to go with the stories I was experiencing and observing around me. I was–and continue to be–fascinated by people and that which drives them. In college, I combined these two loves of mine and studied both journalism and photography. This worked as a catalyst to turn what was once a hobby into a career–a career that combines my love of people with my desire to create and tell stories.

What is it that you try to convey with your work?
With every session and wedding that I photograph, my aim is to create images that accurately capture and express the relationships, experiences, and emotions involved. Whether it’s a bride and groom’s first look on their wedding day or a family welcoming a new little one into their home, I strive to take photographs that not only embrace the present moment but will also be images that my subjects and subjects’ family cherish for generations.

How do you accomplish that?
I believe it is important, and critical, to be truly invested in my subjects and who they are as individuals. When people are placed in front of a camera, it is often a very vulnerable place. All focus is directed towards them and that can be very uncomfortable for many people. In order to accurately and sensitively capture my subjects, I see it as a mutual creative collaboration. Before weddings and sessions I have consistent and various forms of communication regarding who they are, where they are at, and what they’re looking for, as well as who I am as a photographer and individual.

Have you had a photographer inspire your work, and if so, who and why?
I am constantly inspired by artists, both local and global. It can be hard to keep track of my favorites. I’ll share two long-standing favorites. Henri Cartier-Bresson has inspired me ever since I first poured over his work in my art history course. His commitment to capturing the perfect shot to encompass a specific moment is a quality I strive for in my work as well. I also appreciate how he paved the way for a more journalistic approach to photography. I have been avidly following Tyler Branch of Tyler Branch Photo. His work is stunning, emotive, and spot on with lighting.

What is your most memorable accomplishment so far in your photography career?
I’ve sat long and hard thinking about my answer to this question. I keep trying to think of big accomplishments that would wow anybody reading my words. However, I keep coming back to the countless little things that add up to the biggest reason why I’m in this field. The people. I have gotten to meet so many incredible individuals through my work. I have photographed a mother as she marvels over the miracle of life and prepares to welcome a baby into this world. I have photographed a couple on their wedding day as ” ’til death do us part” sinks in. I have photographed individuals as they process past seasons of their life and prepare to embark on a new journey. All of these instances are pivotal and vulnerable places in a person’s life; it is my biggest accomplishment to create images that my subjects can look at and see the beauty that I have the honor of witnessing.

What is one thing you have learned during your career?
Deal with the what-if’s as they come. Don’t allow them to paralyze you before you even begin. Transitioning from hobbyist to full-time photographer is a big leap of faith. And I was no exception. I created lists–okay, honestly I created lists of lists. Yes, organization and brainstorming are key, but I eventually got to a place that a list in and of itself wasn’t enough anymore. As I was asking hard questions and taking real steps to make the change, I had to stop asking the what-if’s and start realistically dealing with them as I pursued my goal. I had to get up and DO. I had to start making those checkmarks and if obstacles came up along the way that wasn’t on my list, I would deal with them as they came. I will never forget the first time I woke up as the official owner of Aanna Chase Photography with the whole day ahead of me to pursue my business. I would never have launched my own business if I had continually dwelled on the what-if’s without taking action.

Which Photographer Supply Company products do you currently use?
I use Photography Supply Company’s beautiful wooden custom USB’s.

How have Photographer Supply Company products helped your business?
Consistency in branding is so important. Photography Supply Co’s option to customize products is so great–it allows me to get high-quality products that line up with my brand. And in doing so, my clients are provided with a beautiful and long lasting product.
