The Truth Behind What I Do | West Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin

It’s that time of year when I can barely breathe. Two weeks ago was spent driving 8 hours north, to photograph a wedding and 7 mini sessions. This past weekend was spent driving 10 hours to photograph a wedding, oh, and stopping along the way to photograph a 2 hour family session. Before that, it was weekends spent second shooting weddings, answering countless emails, calling potential couples (it’s engagement season), editing for other photographers (alongside my own work), booking family sessions, boudoir sessions…BREATHE.

There are details from this wedding that will live with me forever. When Alexandra contacted me about photographing her wedding, one of the first things she mentioned was that her mother had passed away. She told me that her mom loved red roses and that there would be little touches of red roses throughout the day to remember her by. They placed red roses on the chair her mother would have sat in during the ceremony and then again at the reception. She also took a handwritten note that her mom had written her and got her handwriting embroidered on a handkerchief. Alexandra and her father had a very emotional first look with each other, as they talked about and remembered her mom. It was truly hard to keep my eyes dry throughout the day, but it was amazing how you could feel her mother in the presence of all of the family and friends that surrounded the couple.

I wanted to get Katie to talk about why she did this branding session and what the experience was like. I’ve done headshots for a while, but the branding sessions have become a new passion for me. Katie and I started with emails back and forth, discussing her vision for this session. I made her two separate mood boards that were based off of our conversations. By the time the day came around, we had a solid game plan and it made the session so seamless and fun!
