“Tingting and Andy are friends of mine and they spoke highly of you and your service. We would love to have you as our photographer for our wedding.”
On the contact form of my website there is a section to tell me who referred you to my business. Da wrote the above, and it just goes to show that the best marketing is happy clients. I’ve said that for years, I say that when teaching other wedding photographers, and it’s been a constant throughout the nearly two decades that I’ve been a wedding photographer. Make your clients happy, and they’ll tell their friends. It’s really that easy. Tingting and Andy had an AMAZING wedding several years prior, and it is so heartwarming to know that they still remembered me, and that they’re still telling their friends about me!
Da and Freda were married on the kind of late-winter/early-spring day that makes you love this time of year. It was cold, yes, but the light was brilliant and bright. The Princeton campus was quiet, and we had the kind of timeline that wedding photographers dream about : ample time to create portraits, no rushing, an easy experience for the couple and their families, and space to breathe and enjoy the day.
From getting ready at the Nassau Inn to long walks across the college campus, everything unspooled and unfolded like a dream. There was gorgeous light, a wonderful collaborative team, and a reception that ended with a shower of sparklers and a sweet kiss at the bottom of the steps.
“Simple. Quiet. Classic.”
When asked how they envisioned their wedding day, Da and Freda told me those three words. And their day was just that : simple, quiet, and classic. Full of love and sweetness, calm comfort and beauty. It was an honor to document the day for them.
Here are a few of my favorite images from their wedding:
