I think getting to know your wedding suppliers, i.e. the people behind the brands, is really important when it comes to choosing the elements of your day. Who people are, what makes them tick and their lifestyle choices will have formed the foundation for their business. You want your wedding to reflect ‘you’ so it’s a great idea to get like-minded suppliers involved to create the magic.
Unlike other suppliers, photographers are the ones who’ll be there with you… in person. ALL day! From the nervous energy getting ready, to that intimate moment right after you say ‘I Do’ to slipping and sliding across the dance floor. You want someone you get along with, who ‘gets’ your style and can put you at ease.
Today we get to know Paloma Murillo Vandersteen AKA Photography By Paloma. I’ve known Paloma for years, she’s done personal shoots of me with my son, as well as bridal shoots, and she’s exhibited at my wedding fairs. She shot one of my favourite photos; the cover for issue seven, our special issue. We had a lot of fun with that sailor and his dogs!
I love Paloma’s relaxed attitude and her dry sense of humour. I know we’ll always have fun on shoots and I know her technical ability is spot on.
Now for the questions…
1) What makes you happy? The sunshine and the sound of my children’s laughter.
