When I first heard the term Friendtographer, I immediately fell in love with it.
FRIEND + PHOTOGRAPHER
I was shooting a wedding in Maui a couple of years ago when I first heard the term Friendtographer, and immediately fell in love with it. Contrary to popular belief, I wasn’t the one who originally came up with the title, it was actually one of my brides.
After a few pre-wedding events leading up to the big day, she informed me that she originally introduced me as her photographer but after getting to know each other, that seemed far too formal so she began introducing me simply as her friend.
However, then no one realized that I was also her wedding photographer so she combined the two and from that day forward, being a Friendtographer was a thing.
It was the perfect hybrid, and honestly how I’d felt all along about my ideal clients.
When I become a part of your wedding experience, you’re automatically adopted into my Friendtography Family. You see, it’s that feeling of: Wait, are you my photographer or are you my friend who’s taking my photos? that makes the relationship with my clients so awesome. All of my Friendtography clients are not just clients. They are all amazing people who I can see myself being friends with for a lifetime. Several of my closest friends, in fact, are people I never knew before that initial wedding inquiry and I’m so incredibly thankful for each and every one of them. I love meeting knew clients because it’s always a mystery who’ll be the next couple I’ll find myself laughing with over beers and a game of Catch Phrase two years from now.
