Lauren Peterson of Philip Gabriel Photography spoke with us about her engagement and her tips for other newly engaged couples.
What is your best tip for newly engaged couples?
Lauren recommends visiting sites like PhiladelphiaWeddings.com to scour out great wedding professionals and venues in your area. Start looking with your fiance to feel out the type of style you want for your wedding and get an idea of what kind of professionals you’d like to work with. Make sure you start by solidifying a date first so you can get everything planned out and then all of the details will fall into place. Don’t be afraid to ask questions and use the resources available to you!
What are some trends you’ve seen in the industry recently?
Smaller micro weddings are obviously a big trend seen across the industry right now, and although things are opening back up, you will probably continue to see smaller weddings. Another trend from this season is keeping things true to you and your partner’s personalities and creating new traditions. Your wedding will be most memorable if you make it special and speak to your personality to stand out.
What is your favorite part about working in wedding photography?
When asked about her favorite part about her job, Lauren said she loves working with couples to capture their love on their wedding day. It’s the most exciting moment for them, and that translates over to the photos. The best part is when the couple walks down the aisle as a married couple because the joy in their faces is so special!
For corporate events, Lauren loves traveling and meeting fun people during her shoots. Each project is unique and different, and the food photoshoots are always a good time. It may be exhausting, but it is satisfying!
