Happy Soleful Sunday…. I missed last week because I was a little under the weather. Today along with posting one of my favorite pair of shoes for the week, I am also going to give a little advice because it is important for you to know. A lot of couples are planning for their big day. There is an overwhelming amount of choices for venues, cakes, dresses…and (sigh) Photographers.
One of the biggest decisions you will make about your wedding day is choosing your wedding photographer. This person(s) will be responsible for capturing all the incredible moments of one of the best days of your lives, so you want to make sure they are a good fit for you, and pretty darn good at their job. Here are some questions you may want to ask your potential photographer⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1. How would you describe your working style? You want to see what type of photographer they are. Do they lay low, fade into the background, and capture things as they unfold naturally? Or do they take charge and set up shots?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2. Are you the photographer that will be shooting my wedding? Will you have a second shooter or assistant?
3. Have you ever shot at my wedding venue?
4. What is your backup plan if you are unable to attend my wedding?
5. If my event goes beyond our agreed upon time, is there an extra charge?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
***BONUS***You need to ask yourself, “Do I vibe with this photographer? This is THE most important question you can ask. You will be spending a lot of time with your photographer, and you want to be comfortable with them and around them.
I want the absolute best for my clients, so I encourage them to shop around. A consultation does not have to be a commitment. Find who works for you #itanimages
Here is my shoe pick of the week. They are very comfortable.

Like most women, I am a lover of shoes — flats, heels, red, floral prints you name it. I will never admit to anyone how many pairs I own. I feel like it a little like asking a woman her age-“never ask a woman how many pairs of shoes she has.”
Because of my love for shoes, I decided that I wanted to create Soleful Sundays to talk with you about many things regarding photography and to give you a glimpse of what it is like to walk in the shoes of a wedding and portrait photographer. And of course, to share with you my shoe pick of the week. With this platform, I hope that I will be able to connect, inspire, and educate through sharing my experiences.
So today, I want to kick off the first post with this pair of 💥Super She-ro pumps💥 with a little bling.✨
Wearing high heels have a way of elongating the legs and add a sensual flair to any outfit.
So, when you are planning your portrait session, remember to accent your outfit with a pair of comfortable stylish heels.

I met Kismet, this lovely bride, to be at the Chic Bridal show at the Fox theater. She was the bride to be that won our door prize. After a consultation, Kismet and Louis decided to hire me to share in their October wedding. This love story began with the couple meeting at a trendy neighborhood restaurant where they both grew up. It was an immediate connection, Phi Beta Sigma and Zeta Phi Beta. After fourteen months of dating, Louis popped the question in an intimate setting. Kismet said, “Yes.” They are excited to start the next phase of their lives together. I was thrilled that they decided to hire me, not only to document their wedding but also to capture their love in this Downtown Austell engagement session. So let us take a ride…
“ All aboard the love train❤️ 🚂, Louis and Kismet”….
