Here’s a couple things you should know about planning a wedding in the Spokane area. Firstly, attaining that “Style Me Pretty” worthy wedding is very possible here, our vendors are on par with any in the world. Secondly, (and this is a good one) having that “Style Me Pretty” wedding is MUCH more affordable here. If you’ve ever planned a wedding in another city, or been party to someone planning a wedding in another city, you know this is true. Everything is cheaper here.
Today, I want to introduce you to one of newest Featured Photographers, Rose from Urban Rose Photography. Rose is exceptionally talented and offers couples that high standard of photography at a price I’m sure would be almost double in another city. We are VERY lucky to have people like Rose in our area. Rose also was responsible for one of my favorite weddings last year. Remember Paul and Meaghan’s Bozarth Mansion wedding???
Here is an interview with Rose and a portfolio of some of her work…
How long have you been in photography?
Over 3 years professionally.
Why did you decide to go into wedding photography?
Because I adore love. From the expectancy the bride feels in the morning, to the precious first glance and wedding vows, to the dancing, laughing and crying. It’s all love, and I get to capture it for my clients to relive again and again. Wedding photography is something special. There is no richer feeling than contributing to the best day of someone’s life. I just feel incredibly blessed to make a living doing this.
How would you describe your style?
My photographs are classic, romantic and chic. My shooting style is non-intrusive and fun. I let couples be who they are and I capture the organic love between them.
What is your advice for brides and grooms looking for a wedding photographer?
Find a photographer that fits your style, and one you feel comfortable with. You are going to be spending most of your wedding day together so you want it to be a good fit. Also remember that good photographers will book up fast; so once you find them, book quickly. Your photography coverage should be high on the priority list. Think about it, your wedding lasts a day, but you are going to have these photos forever.
What makes your photography unique?
I really care about and cultivate a friendship with all my couples. I want to get to know you so I can create genuine images that truly reflect your relationship. My imagery is unique in that I stay true to who you are and what works for you, not necessarily what is most trendy in the photography world.
What is your favorite part of a wedding?
I have to pick one?! I would have to say when the bride walks down the aisle. It is the moment she has dreamed about all her life. All the hours of planning, all the excitement and joy come to peak at that moment. And the way the groom is looking at her…I almost cry every time.
What is included in your packages?
My packages include: an engagement session, wedding day coverage, digital negatives and album(s). I also offer custom packages upon consultation. I understand you have a budget to think about, so I try and make it doable for you.
Will you travel?
Yes, Of COURSE!
Anything else you would like brides to know?
More than anything I want you to understand how important this aspect of your wedding is. Truly, I cannot stress it enough. These photos are precious pieces of art that you are going to look at over and over again throughout your life. This is the day you have been planning for months, if not years, and you’re going to be so glad you invested the money in a good wedding photographer.
If you are on a tight budget, talk with your photographer about a payment plan, or other ways you can save on your big day. We have seen it all, and are happy to help!
