Hi KCP Clients, Former Clients, And Fans! I am Madison Aderholt and I am Kristi’s Marketing Director! This position just fell into place for us, and I'm so glad it did. Kristi and I have known each other for a long time. Her oldest son is the same age as my younger brother. I met her after the boys became friends and she began photographing their sports teams! Over the years she's also done photo sessions for me and for my family.
What is the "First Look"? The "First Look" is when the bride and groom opt to see each other before the actual ceremony. The bride walks down the isle, I photograph her over the shoulder of the groom, I step to the side when she arrives behind her groom and I let nature take over. You can either tap him on the shoulder or give him a big hug! It's very intimate, I get expressions from the bride and the groom. I always give them a few minutes together alone and most of the time that is the only time your alone during the wedding festivities. My bride and grooms are more relaxed and spend the day with one another instead of in hiding.
So, I had a moment, not the kind of moment to twirl my hair, lay back have a Snickers, although I did eat a Snickers earlier, a what am I doing moment. What am I doing, freak out moment. Kind like the one I had a couple of weeks when I hired Nick Weeks of http://www.snaplifestudios.com/ to film a interview of myself for the website. I was perfectly fine all day, knew what I wanted to wear, had make-up nicely done and 30 minutes before Nick arrives I lost total control of what I wanted to say. Funny I keep putting myself in these situations, self inflicted situations. I don't sound to bad on my video, just did not say exactly what I wanted to .
As I sit here my fingers can't help but google about the wedding photographers that inspire me. Not just through their images through their determination. While looking back on their older blog post I recognize where they have been, where I am now. I have a knot in my stomach constantly reminding to push, think, research, figure out where is the road that will take me where I want to be. I like instant gratification, things can never happen fast enough for me.
