@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2: A B+W photo is timeless. Romantic. And the lack of color allows you to easily pull focus toward what you want your viewer to see. Often for receptions, I choose to do B+W because there is so much happening, color can become distracting. B+W can help make for a more focused and seamless image. 🖤

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2: Movement on film is exciting. 🎉 It’s an experiment for the photographer and enchanting for the viewer. As photographers, it’s a risk. You’ll either get your images back and be in love, or they’ll look awful—which is also exciting! 🙂 Most fine-art photographers often think of an image as a still life, a frozen moment, and I’m excited that so many photographers are now implementing movement into their work. For viewers, you don’t always know what’s happening in a photograph. Movement helps give direction, revealing the story within the frame.

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2: “What is my purpose? What do I want to be remembered for?” Honestly, I think about these questions all the time, and I have yet to come up with an answer for them. I’ll say this though, the best thing about my job is being surrounded by like-minded individuals. Sometimes, this industry can feel lonely and like you’re going at things alone. No one is an island, and there’s no way we can succeed without leaning on and confiding in each other. I challenge you to seek out people you can encourage and vice versa. A rising tide truly raises all boats.

@cassidycarsonphoto Takeover Day 2: Too often I find myself forgetting the in-between photographs. The reactions to moments, the bridesmaids peeking in on the first look, the mom crying watching the father-daughter dance. They’re so important and incredibly special. If we’re missing them, then our clients most definitely are. I want to challenge photographers to avoid tunnel vision on the wedding day—slow down for just a moment and look around. What’s behind you could be your (and your client’s) favorite photo from the entire day. ✨
