One thing that held me back as a photographer was that I cared too much about staying in a certain type of photography style. Light and airy, so keep with the lights and whites, or dark and moody so moody light and dark backgrounds are needed. Yes, consistency is important but don't let it hold you back from evolving. My film-like editing style looks much different with this photo than maybe how others would have treated it, but it's mine. Challenge yourself to find your own style which might not have an industry definition. You might end up creating a unique style that is trending in the next few years😉 #teamvanelk #weddingphotography
Mom remembers her's like it was yesterday. Her wedding dress hung from the exact same hanger. She slowly grabs the dress knowing that once her daughter slipped on her own dress this will be the moment that felt like years away but in a bittersweet way, came quickly. Her baby girl will soon be a wife. #teamvanelk #weddingphotography
I'm pretty certain Steve's mind was blown by this hanging cake. He had so many questions that all revolved around when it would inevitably fall. It didn't fall. It just hung in there all night, looking beautiful. . 🎂: @eye_thee_wed . #teamvanelk #weddingphotography
Happy Valentine’s Day!! I hope you are having as much fun as we are in this photo. Two crazy kids.
And just like that she isn't a baby anymore. 😢 Just a few days she'll be two, which means we are almost through the winter and we can have park dates! We need some outdoor time!
