It's always a pleasure chatting with Alexis! Her smile and her passion for her work are amazing! It is our honor to feature Ashley & Alexis Photography as this weeks featured vendor!
Why we do what we do! We strive to giving quality memories to last a lifetime. Moments are gone in seconds, let us capture the best of them! I feel accomplished each time someone returns to me, or uses their pictures online, or refers someone to us.
What makes you tick? I've always been a variety gal! One reason I love photography is the variety of jobs it includes! check out her galleries... the diversity of photography is amazing! I have a firm belief in being a real legal business. It is unfortunate that many photographers don't even know what that means. To make it, you have to be almost more business savvy than talented in picture taking. Without the business knowledge, you aren't really a business for long.
What is your favorite part about working with brides? Love hearing how they fell in love, all the little romantic things that have happened along their journey!
Have you done anything crazy in your business? I feel so lame, or maybe what I encounter just isnt crazy to me, lol. I've gotten to photograph a lot of interesting things and people with fun stuff. I've had couple include pigs, chickens, dogs, cats, cupcake fights, bounce houses and so much more! It's all part of what I love about my job!
What wedding trends do you see? Last years was mason jars and burlap....I think this year couples are being a little more budget minded and doing less (the whole less is more thing). I also think people are moving away from traditional cakes and exploring other options like pies, doughnuts, candy bars, etc.
Consider doing couple pictures on a different day other than your wedding day (or in addition to). The day goes by quickly and this seems to be the one thing I always wish I had more of! Couples want to be around family and friends the day of the wedding and are spending less and less time with their photographer in a one to one setting. Yet, these are likely the pictures you will put up in your home and give out to everyone. Any couple that I've had do an additional day in their wedding gear has totally loved the results!
check out our video on our facebook page! There is a lot to ask and consider when picking out your photographer! Most important are contracts? what happens if your photographer gets sick or hurt? and to really see more than what they just put online for public (it's always their best stuff online)
