You’ve seen the work of Whitling Photography plastered all over Burgh Brides. That’s because I love them. Like I loooooooooove them. I love them in a way that borders on obsessive. It’s probably because every bride/groom/person in any one of their photos looks like the cool kid I always wanted (still want?) to be. You know the person I’m talking about…the one who wakes up and is beautiful without even trying, the one who looks hip and chic doing just about anything, the one who marches to the beat of their own drum but makes others wish they marched to it as well. What I wouldn’t give to have my photograph taken by Stephanie and Brett.
Have you found yourself feeling the same way? Considering Whitling as your wedding photographer? How about a quick test?! Here are 6 easy ways to tell if they’re the one for you!
Do you roll with the punches?
If you’re cool as a cucumber and take whatever life throws at you, then you’ll love the Whitlings. Their laid back, fun loving personalities will bring an extra level of comfort to your special occasion. You’ll feel relaxed in front of their cameras and you’ll look natural and like your sweet self in the frames they capture.
People > things, right?
Will all of the humans at your wedding be more important than all of the “stuff”? While Stephanie and Brett will happily document your accessories, flowers, and tablescapes, they put a strong emphasis on people. If you agree that relationships and emotions matter more than bouquets and favors, then you’ll get along just fine.
Does nature give you all the feels?
Raise your hand if the outdoors is your happy place! Whitling Photography describes windy days and the forest as “life”. If you’re up for exploring all that Mother Nature has to offer, they’ll be right there alongside you, cameras in tow.
Are you ok with taking risks, being silly, and maybe even getting a little dirty?
When it comes to their work, Stephanie and Brett aren’t afraid to go outside the box or be atypical, and they’ll push you to do the same. Hike a mountain in your wedding dress, go barefoot in the mud, stand in front of a gritty graffiti wall because the light is casting a super cool shadow…no matter the instructions, I guarantee the end result will be magic.
Agree that life is messy but pretty darn awesome?
The Whitlings are committed to capturing truth, whether it's beautiful or not. They focus on honesty, raw emotions, and unplanned moments. Documenting real love is what inspires them the most. If you’re up for being a little bit vulnerable and open, I promise it will be worth it!
Do you trust the intuition of artists?
Are you comfortable letting your photographer take the creative lead? These two are pure geniuses and if you let them, they’ll bring beauty to life in the form of a photograph. Couples who allow artists to flex their creativity muscles are totally Stephanie and Brett’s kind of people.
Did you answer yes to one or more of these questions? Then it sounds like you + Whitling Photography just might = a match made in wedding heaven.
