@brianwhitt Takeover Day 3: I just love the joy this mama feels for her baby in this moment. I am constantly pushing myself to capture more authentic moments. Never be afraid to respectfully take charge of a shoot. I often, if not always, pick locations for my clients and often help them pick their outfits. After all, they are counting on ME to deliver my best, and so am I. It is OK to take charge in a heartfelt and confident manner and simply explain why you’ve selected a particular location. However, I will always ask where my clients feel their best—open spaces or closed spaces. As I have learned from @ginnyau’s styling course, this will help put clients more at ease. Believe in yourself no matter what! You are worth it. You have a skill and a talent and a commitment as a photographer to deliver powerful and meaningful images to clients.

Be bold. Share your talents with the world and always deliver your best work! You will soon find yourself surrounded by creatives who continuously inspire you and encourage you to execute your vision. I loved collaborating on this bridal editorial shoot with @elizabethdye titled #projectpirateship. The concept was born from Elizabeth’s creative vision, inspired by a ‘90s music video and a shipwreck, that took place off the Oregon coast. Here, our bride is longing to see her groom as she waits on shore for his return. (Spoiler alert! He doesn’t make it, so the shoot takes a moody, but beautiful turn.) This project was such a blast and it’s always a pleasure to try something new creatively with great friends.

@brianwhitt Takeover Day 3: No matter what, always be yourself when working with other people, and don’t be afraid to have a little fun! From time-to-time, I feel like I need to constantly direct my subjects, but I have to remind myself this isn’t the case. I want my clients’ photos to be unique to them, to be a true documentation of their personal relationship—not what *I* think they should be or how they should look. I’ve found that when I give my subjects broad, sweeping directions, the outcome is much more genuine. When the moment and the couple are right, I can say, “Hey, whisper something weird in his ear!” And that’s when we get an interaction like this . . . one of pure joy.
@brianwhitt Takeover Day 3: A huge thanks to PhotoVision for allowing me to take over their Instagram for a couple days. There is absolutely no way I could do this work without them. They are such a highly-capable, responsive and genuine group of people. I feel so grateful that they process my film. Their work is second to none!
It has been such a pleasure sharing some of my vulnerabilities as a creative and how to inspire your couples to be more vulnerable. We are all on this journey together. May we continue to support and encourage one another along the way. Keep up the great work, everyone! And please, feel free to drop me a line at Brian@BrianWhitt.com, I am here to help! 🙂
