The power of a photograph to conjure memories and emotions from the most important times in our lives is undeniable. This is especially true for wedding photographs. Since childhood, Kim Mancuso has had a fascination for the captured image and its ability to share experiences and stories. We were first introduced to Kim’s work through BB Featured Bride Kristen’s summer wedding at Trumpet at The Gate. From the intimate moments to the grand gestures, her photographs were an authentic expression of the day from beginning to end.

Kim just launched her new photography website. With the Spring/Summer wedding season just around the corner, we thought it would be a great idea to interview Kim for our Women Paving the Aisle series. Here, she talks about her professional journey, unique approach to photographing weddings, building trust with clients, and creative inspirations.

Finding your wedding dress can be a daunting task. You want to feel and look beautiful as soon as you put it on.

Sophia had an easier time than most though. “I spent a lot of time on the Internet looking for wedding dresses and found one that I kept going back to. As I went through the trying on process, it was the one that I would always compare the other dresses to. It didn’t take long before I knew that that first dress was the one for me.”
