What inspired you to become a photographer?
I have loved photography since high school. I took a few classes in school and found out that I have a knack for it. I love being able to capture those special moments in a person’s life that they can look back on and reminisce about how they felt at that particular moment. It's just about the sweetest thing you can do for someone.
Who are some of your favorite photographers?
Some local photographers here in Dallas–Fort Worth are amazing. Luckily I have been able to sit down with a couple of them and have their input. It's been amazing!
How would you describe your style or approach to photography?
I only like to shoot when lighting is the best, either early morning or later in the afternoon. I love sun flare but there are some occasions when I like to really let colors stand out in a picture. Especially eyes!
How do you set your subjects at ease?
I just talk. I tell them about myself and ask about them. I like to know who it is I am taking pictures of so I know what type of style they may have or what it is they are looking for in their pictures. If I ask 20 questions, it's because I really want to know what makes them tick.
Tell us about your business.
Sassybomb Photography is a husband and wife team that specializes in Wedding photography. Because they don’t have the overhead of a traditional studio they can offer a very high quality product for less. Their goal when shooting is to capture and emphasize the romance in our couples! .
What makes your business stand out?
Outside of "the church"—bridal and engagement sessions—a lot of photographers are "natural light only." Unfortunately, natural light doesn't always produce the most desirable result. We take professional-grade studio lighting and light modifiers to almost every shoot. Carrying all of that gear into the field isn't the easiest thing to do, but in our opinion it's worth the effort.
What inspired you to start this business?
We have done several weddings for friends and family just because we liked doing it. When we finally were able to get high quality equipment that was when we decided to create a business. From the beginning our goal was to allow every couple the opportunity to have high-quality yet affordable images. We felt it was important because years later all they will have left to remember their day will be those images.
What is your most popular offering?
Our all-inclusive wedding packages that include either a 10"x10" or 12"x12" flush mount leather-bound albums. Our large prints on Canvas or Metal are also very popular.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Tears. When a bride looks at their photos and cries again as they relive their day it gives us a great feeling of satisfaction.
What’s your favorite part about your job?
What begins as a business contact really transforms into more of a friendship so the relationships we develop would be the most rewarding aspect of this job.
