My awesome friend Kat at Kingdom Wedding Photography has been spending the slow winter season spiffing up her blog, and interviewing other wedding vendors about their business and experience. Â This week, she was kind enough to interview me! Â And she asked great questions, including:
What is your favorite thing about what you do?
I pretty much love everything about it. I adore meeting new people at such a significant moment in their lives. I enjoy making the process of putting together the ceremony as easy as possible. I really like going to places around the state that I never would have seen. I get a huge kick out of dressing up in the color scheme of each wedding (itâ€™s the actor in me â€“ I love costumes) and, of course, actually performing the ceremony. Itâ€™s all just a blast!
What do you think sets you apart from others?
Iâ€™m a good listener, so I can really take in what a couple wants for their ceremony. Iâ€™m a deft writer, so I can craft something thatâ€™s elegant, artful, meaningful, personal, and also funny. I know how to create sacred space without being too sentimental or sanctimonious about it. Iâ€™m a very experienced performer, so I know how to take the stage and run the show while still keeping each couple at the center of their own wedding. Plus, I just donâ€™t get rattled. So no matter what happens â€“ be it animals, babies, weather, in-laws, or the bride passing out â€“ I can stay focused and in charge without turning anything into a crisis.
Whatâ€™s the one thing you wish everyone knew about you or your business?
Ha! What a funny question. Iâ€™m not sure. Hire me and find outâ€¦
