A couple months ago, I started to think about how extremely thankful I am for having such amazing couples put their trust in me to document their wedding day. How do I even begin to thank each of them for their trust in choosing me?
My goal as a wedding photographer is not just to show up and take photos on the wedding day. I want each of my couples to look to me as a sounding board, a trusted advisor, and a good friend by the time the wedding day rolls around. I appreciate each of them and I want to be sure they know that.
…and so the idea of the ML Bridal Brunch was born.
With the help of local vendors and industry experts, the day came together beautifully. Five of my Dubuque area brides brought their moms, or sisters, and met up with me last Sunday for brunch, mimosas and a little bit of fun and inspiration.
To my Chicago Area brides… Stay tuned! I haven’t forgotten you. :)
The Beautiful ML Brides and their special guests!
I wanted the day to be not only fun but informational, a big thank you goes out to my industry experts!
