Why do you see yourself as being Modern, Vintage, Classic, or Eclectic?

I see myself as a modern photographer who loves to capture eclectic events. My style is timeless; I keep true to bold, vibrant tones to capture the mood of the day through colors, and tend to frame photographs from very distinct angles. Since I’m a crafty person I appreciate all the do-it-yourself touches a bride and groom have invested in for their special day, which translates to my distinct attention to detail. I pride myself on attention this meticulous aspect of my personality and it shows in my work!

What is your favorite wedding detail you’ve ever seen or created?

My favorite wedding details are those from Etsy that are clearly hand-crafted. I identify with the crafty side of the business and I like to support local and small businesses myself. Some great things I’ve seen are custom ring boxes for the ring bearer to carry and customized hangers for the brides dress. As a photographer, I definitely appreciate a great hanger to compliment a wonderful wedding dress!

What is your favorite store or brand?

It’s hard for me to choose just one store or brand I adore. Many brands come together to make a complete picture that’s successful for an event. I will say I’m addicted to Pinterest though! You can find all my inspiration there, username Mikkel Paige!

What advice do you have for a newly engaged bride?

Advice I have for a newly engaged bride is to take some time to enjoy being engaged! Then certainly capture this moment in your life with some engagement photos! Not only will you love having them years from now as you reminisce about this chapter in your life but it allows you to familiarize yourself with being in front of a camera with your fiance. Additionally, it allows the photographer to familiarize him or herself with you! It’s a win-win situation!

What is your favorite thing about weddings?

My favorite thing about weddings is that the love in the air is palpable. I am truly continuously honored to work in such an amazing position where brides and grooms select me as the lucky one to capture their day’s special moments. As I stand there photographing a bride and groom, I can’t help but be affected by the electricity in the many special moments I get to be a part of.

What qualities do you possess that enable you to work well with brides and grooms?

I am such an outgoing and personable woman! I am always incredibly optimistic, and I’m a level-headed voice in potential moments of chaos on a special yet busy day.

It’s incredibly important to me that you are able to connect with me and, similarly, for me to connect with my brides and grooms. I make sure I meet all of my clients before they sign a contract whether it’s via Skype (if we’re long distance) or in person for coffee. This is to ensure we’re a good fit as you “hire the photographer, not just the photographs.”

I stay in contact with you from the moment you send your first inquiry, to the days leading up to your wedding, to your big day. It’s as if I’m an old friend by the time your wedding rolls around!

What steps do you take to ensure that your clients will have amazing wedding days when working with you?

I work out all details before a couple’s wedding to ensure that the day runs as smoothly as possible. This entails contacting the wedding venue to touch base, letting vendors know I’m excited to work with them, and most importantly working with the bride and groom to coordinate schedules and important details.

My wish for all my brides and grooms is that they build up such trust and faith in my abilities as their photographer all they need to do on their day is simply enjoy each moment.
