So you hate photos… but you’re getting married?

Wedding accessories and details.

When the feeling of awkwardness takes over the joy

Welcome to the best place ever, your new home for comfortable and empowering photos. It’s no secret that being photographed can feel overwhelming and scary for many people. If that’s you, then hiiii *waves* 🙂 I’m here today to speak a little love over you and hopefully help shape the way you think of having your photo taken.

You’re a precious gift to this world. Every day you impact the world in a positive way, even if you don’t know how that might possibly be. You see, we live in a world that’s trained to see the negative. When you leave someone with a good feeling they are unlikely to let you know that you positively impacted them. They will, though, make sure you know if it was negative. You’re worth seeing in every light, every facet, every focused or unfocused glance. I guarantee that your partner looks at you through this lens of deep adoration too. You’re a very loved individual who is wanted and worth encapsulating in the form of photos.

So when the time comes for your wedding photos try falling asleep the night before with thoughts that feel empowering. When the negative thoughts come creeping in, stop the rabbit hole in its tracks and repeat some of these below;
