I love Kristen Finn. Like, a lot. I met her about two years ago at CDIA. Kristen has a love for good design and food; two things she photographs with PASSION. And I think that is one thing she and I have in common, and why I love second shooting with her. She loves the little things. In fact, we usually have several pow-wows through out the evening where we comment on the look the bride gave the groom during the speech, or the beautiful necklace on the mother of the bride, etc. It really is the small things that make wedding photography fun.
Kristen and I shot Melissa and Scott’s Ashburn, VA wedding [click on the link to see her images!] together a few months ago. It is so beautiful there–golf courses galore. Here are some things I took away from shooting with Kristen
- Just Try It. Kristen is awesome at trying new ideas in portraits, lighting, and posing.
- Be Friendly. I learned this about Kristen much earlier–she is just so friendly. Melissa wasn’t her just client, she was her friend she made while shooting her wedding!
- Take Time. When she shoots, she makes sure she takes the time to get the shot right.
Here are a few of my shots from our portrait session:
Kristen in action. Work it, girl!
