Only two days ago, I had the sincere pleasure of photographing an intimate celebration between Victoria & Paul at the Old Chaser Farm on Vashon Island.

The Old Chaser Farm wedding venue on Vashon Island is one for the books.  Personally, I may be completely biased because I love taking ferries over for weddings because it feels more like a true destination wedding, but it’s simply stunning.  The property sits on what feels like a couple dozen acres, it’s incredibly private & secluded, and the birds chirping makes for some incredible ambiance as you set up for your wedding day.

The interior of the house isn’t like any traditional wedding venue. It’s a house.  Or an art gallery. Or a combination of the two because this house is filled with both modern and traditional art, right down to the furniture and light fixtures.

When you are enjoying your time outside for your reception, not only are you enjoying an amazing time with friends and family, but it really makes you fall in love with the “island” vibe of living.  Even though Old Chaser Farm is located on Vashon Island near Seattle, you don’t feel anywhere near the city… and I think that’s perfect.

I had the opportunity (and pleasure) of photographing Victoria & Paul’s wedding at the Old Chaser Farm, and they went about it a bit non-traditionally.  They had their ceremony the day PRIOR to when they wanted me to photograph their celebration.  They wanted a time where it’s just their closest friends and family, and have a very private moment to themselves.  It wasn’t until Saturday that they wanted me there to document their celebration with an absolutely, incredibly, amazingly delicious 6-star meal (had to rate it better than 5 stars) and plenty of alcohol to last the whole night.  (Thank you, London Plane!) . You guys were amazing.

Just last week, I had the opportunity to photograph a sweet couple at Treehouse Point – Agnieszka and Hudson.  She is Polish, and he is American – and they happened to meet online because of Hudson’s career as a YouTube star.  They began chatting, had an instant connection, and soon – they met face-to-face in Poland (how amazing, right??).  The rest as they say – is history.

Agnieskza is so sweet, and so down-to-earth.  Hudson is a total goofball, and an incredibly smart businessman. Together, they are the definition of a power couple.  It was amazing photographing their unique elopement at Treehouse Point and to document their intimate ceremony and portraits alongside the Raging River.

Their wedding day had sun, clouds, and even some rain – and everything was perfect.

Little did I know when I first chatted with Agnieszka, Hudson is a well-known talent behind the YouTube brand ‘Buff Dudes’ alongside his brother.  If you haven’t heard of them and you aren’t one of their 1.3+ million subscribers, check out their YouTube page at https://www.youtube.com/user/buffdudes and subscribe today.  Absolutely hilarious, and very-well produced.

If you have ever been to a wedding – either as a guest or as a member of the wedding party – you have no doubt had a difficult time deciding on what to wear.  Here, this guide is to help you with making that decision.  Personally, I wish I had known of these “go to” tips for years! I will even be referring to this for the weddings that I photograph.  Every wedding is different, and each wedding style should have their own what-to-wear wedding guide.

The wonderful team at T.M. Lewin put together this wonderful infographic and it’s certainly spot on!  With their permission, I wanted to share with all of you. Make sure to visit their website for more information and for some amazing outfits for the upcoming wedding season. Thank you for sharing with me, Caleb!

Guide for what to wear on a wedding day

Let’s be real for a second. Like, actually 100% truthfully real.  As a business person, it’s (most likely) bad if you are actually being authentic.

 

This post is primarily for content creators of any kind of media, but it applies to pretty much everybody.  Most of us have seen the #liveauthentic hashtags out there, and the many different articles about how it’s important to be authentic in order to gain friends, clients, and even your own happiness.  I think there is a huge difference between being ‘authentic’ and ‘strategically authentic.’  Personally, I truly wish that everybody could be 100% authentic, 100% of the time.  It would make life interesting, you would see a persons true character, and you would get through life faster (or slower, depending on what your true nature is, haha).  Either way, transparency is an amazing thing.

 

From my personal experiences with real friendships, authenticity is 100% key. Tell all the inappropriate jokes you want, cuss, and be yourself. Absolutely.  Business is a totally different ballgame, though.  And sadly, every “personal” account I have through social media is now directly connected to the success I have in my professional life.

It would be great if I could post my thoughts and feelings over Trump, his cabinet, and the destruction our climate change policies… but that would only create a firestorm of comments, arguments, debate, and everything poor when it comes to business (for the kind of business I am in).  I can’t take a stance one way or the other (even though in my head I certainly do).  If I were to say I’m “pro choice” or “pro life” I may actually lose clients on one end of the spectrum or the other, even though it’s a totally personal opinion that shouldn’t effect a persons character… and especially not their business professionalism.  Same goes for if I were to say I support same-sex marriages (which I totally do). The list goes on.

 

Take note that I mentioned “for the kind of business I am in.”  Every business is different, every brand is different, and each strategy should be different with your brand positioning.  If I was a scientist or research development engineer in the climate change industry, you are damn right I’ll be posting about climate change issues and related topics.  But I’m not.  I’m a wedding photographer. My clients are couples who are deeply in love, in one of the most exciting times of their life, and they are looking to hire a photographer that they 1) 100% trust in capturing one of the most special days of their entire life, and 2) love your personality, enthusiasm, and excitement.  They don’t want to be seeing my posts on who got appointed to which seat in the House.  They want to see what I am doing to prepare for their big day and what I have accomplished along the way — in my field of expertise — the field they are hiring me for.

 

Over the years, I have told myself “who cares if you lose clients if they don’t align with your personal beliefs.”  And 99.99% of the time, I still feel that way.  That is, until I post something personal on my personal pages and I see the firestorm first-hand like I mentioned above.   If you are my friend on Facebook, you know some of those posts.

 

Any negative perception over my personal character has a direct correlation of a respective negative perception on my brand — because I AM MY BRAND, and you are your brand.  How I carry myself in public arenas (in real life, as well as on social media – since both are public arenas), is how people assume my photography brands also carry themselves.  That said, I do not want to propagate the endless stream of being fake in a world of smoke & mirrors.  It’s about finding a middle ground.

 

Now, there’s something called being “strategically authentic.” And it’s something I recommend to every business owner.  Business is another thing entirely.  It’s important not to #liveauthentic, but to be “strategically authentic.”  Unless you want the risk of losing your client base.  I’ll explain more below.

 

I’ll put this simply as I can.  Some clients might love you for who you are and book you for your personality.  Some might book you for your professionalism, expertise, experience, and quality of the finished product/service.  Some might like your fart jokes and book you for your humor. Some might think you are the weirdest person on the planet and feel super uncomfortable.

Think about it this way, if you are working with a real estate agent and you are friends with them on social media… you won’t want to see that they are going through a horrific breakup, a drug relapse, an eviction of their own, or see them constantly getting in petty arguments online.  It’s simply not professional, and you are only going to want the most professional people representing you in your largest investment you have.  The same philosophy goes for wedding photographers and other types of businesses.

 

Don’t be fake, but don’t be *overly* authentic when it comes to your business world in public arenas.

 

Put some of your “real self” into your website.  Put it into your social media.  Just back off a bit once it gets uncomfortable to your customers (both actual and potential).  I don’t think there’s any harm in being “strategically authentic” when it comes to your business and livelihood.   After all, the #liveauthentic hashtag REALLY should be called #strategicallyauthentic.  Now that would be some honesty.

 

Here are some business rules to take into consideration over how you choose to position yourself in the industry:
 – A customer is 4 times more likely to defect to a competitor if the problem is service-related than price- or product-related – Bain & Company
– For every customer complaint there are 26 other unhappy customers who have remained silent – Lee Resource
 – 96% of unhappy customers don’t complain, however 91% of those will simply leave and never come back 1Financial Training services
 – It takes 12 positive experiences to make up for one unresolved negative experience – “Understanding Customers” by Ruby Newell-Legner
– A 5% reduction in the customer defection rate can increase profits by 5 – 95% Bain & Company.
– It costs 6–7 times more to acquire a new customer than retain an existing one – Bain & Company

 

I’ve been thinking this for a long time (years), but never has it been so well put until I read an article from content marketing guru Mark Schaefer.  Make sure you visit his website, https://www.businessesgrow.com/, and follow his lectures. His advice is on point and invaluable for your business growth.

To being strategically authentic, with fart jokes…  KG.

Some engagement sessions are sunny, others are rainy, but this winter engagement session was filled with deep powder and soft, falling snow.  Just the way I love it.

Some photographers might reschedule, but having a handy AWD SUV to get me to the mountains safely in [nearly] any condition is amazing, and I am so grateful that we thought ahead and planned accordingly when we got our new car.  Without the AWD, getting to locations like this would be impossible – or treacherous at the very least.

Personally, shooting portraits in the snow is one of my favorites because it gets us into the great outdoors, gives us some fantastic light, and makes for a dynamic environment to really play with.  Check out their winter engagement session below, snowing and everything.

What made this session even better is the plain, amazing attitude from this beautiful, fun-loving couple.  It was nothing but smiles and laughs during their adventurous portrait session in the mountains.  They took direction incredibly well, and they made it their own with their personalities.  Everything was incredible, and I’m very pleased to share this winter engagement session with everybody.

I photographed their session with my new Canon 5D Mark IV, and I absolutely love how it handles every single kind of weather pattern that I toss it into.  It’s an absolute tank and worth every penny. So, if you’re in the market for a new camera, I highly recommend the Mark IV.  Feel free to send me an email why anytime. I am always here to help with anything I can.
