We couldn’t think of a better person to give advice on the subject than photographer Kim Mancuso. Below, Kim discusses the five questions every couple should ask their wedding photographer.

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.

When Summer Watkins Ball started her blog Grey Likes Weddings, no one was really doing what she was doing – curating design inspiration for brides-to-be. The more she posted about her favorite florals, décor, color schemes, bridal fashion trends, and DIY ideas, the more people started to pay attention. Today, she is considered one of the wedding industry’s leading stylists and curators.

And to think that it began with a love for flowers. Summer’s journey wasn’t without its twists and turns however. They say necessity is the mother of invention. A layoff from a corporate marketing job during the 2008 recession was the motivation Summer needed to take an entrepreneurial leap of faith. She hasn’t looked back since. Her creative business acumen now includes The Mrs. Box, a gorgeous collection of ring boxes.

The moment the engagement ring goes on your finger to the exchange of vows marks an exciting, but very stressful period. From finding a dress and venue to choosing décor to dealing with the demands of not only your family and friends, but also your fiancé’s, the wedding planning process can be overwhelming and pressure-filled. Having recently gone through it herself, Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) Landis Bejar understood the modern bride’s headspace, specifically the emotions, anxieties, and uncertainties she feels entering into a major life transition – marriage. Landis realized that the wedding industry was missing one key service – no one was providing support and advice on how to handle wedding related stress in healthy and productive ways.
