Tugce & Stephen's Crissey Farm Wedding
On Tugce and Stephen's October wedding day, I received an email at 7am from my bride. She wrote, "Tricia, the weather looks like it will be raining on the time we are planning to take pictures. I have no idea what we should do if it's pouring rain. I wanted outdoor pictures as this is why I picked October...what should we do?"
I know this can be really scary for couples. I've had a lot of grooms tell me that their bride has been tracking the weather for months, filled with worry. I understand. However, it's good to know I have a rain plan always ready just in case. In addition I come to every event, with my off camera lighting and can make gorgeous photos in many indoor locations.
In receiving Tugce's message, I wasn't worried. In fact, my Associate Photographer Lisa jokes that I'm one part photographer, one part weatherman. It's true! As I'm sure many of my wedding photographer friends can agree, you become an expert in weather patterns when you do this job for a living.
This day for Tugce and Stephen, in fact was just wonderful in every way. They had put so much special planning into this day to make it special for their friends and family and everything was just like they had dreamed it would be. The smiles on Tugce and Stephen's face all day really say it all.
Tugce and Stephen's review was one of the sweetest I had ever received and would love to share it here. It meant so much to me and the day I received it, it made me cry!
"Tricia, Tricia, Tricia and Lisa!!! What can I say... They are an amazing team. From the first email to the speaking on the phone, you can totally feel the energy! I think this is what happens when you love your job!
I was a very low maintenance bride. Venue, perfect, hair and makeup, my husband found it, and it was perfect. But there was only one subject that I was very stingy and nervous about, photos... I have been looking at Tricia's photos from the time we picked the venue and telling myself that we either can't afford, or she was already booked. Then I took the courage to email her and voila! If there is something called luck, this is pure sheer luck!
Our wedding day was perfect! Tricia and Lisa were right on time, and they were even running around like a part of the wedding party! (Even I remember Tricia running after my hair artist because I forgot to tip her) They are basically your best friends for the day! They accommodated all our requests for the photos and tried to keep everyone happy.
Tricia's knowledge on Berkshires definitely makes you calm for the pictures. We were expected to be rained on right when we were taking our outdoor pictures and I emailed Tricia at around 7am telling this, and she responded me with a very calm email that it may not rain, and even if it is, she knows a lot of places to go. At the end it didn't rain. Her knowledge makes the day perfect.
My advice? Cut down from every piece of the wedding day you get and hire them! They make a big difference. I am so lucky and happy that they were a part of our day. Now, I can't wait for all the pictures, sure they will come out beautiful!"
Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Laifelle!
