Blog posts, especially when you're sharing an image, are typically so one-dimensional. However, when you can listen to the artist's words, there's a special significance to seeing a photograph through their mind's eye.
Just click on the image above to read more about Vanessa Joy, but with every featured artist, I love to add a little of my own perception. Vanessa's trademark has become her passion for weddings and marriage. She mentions in this sound byte how once there's an agreement with her clients; it's going to be like the couple is dating her. She's a relationship builder, and that's her secret ingredient to the images she's able to capture. They come out of the trust she builds with all her clients.
But, even with the trust of her clients, great images wouldn't happen without Vanessa's skill set. She never slows down on making sure she's on top of technology and ready to take on every challenge that comes up, including photographing nineteen groomsmen as she did a little while back in this SCU guest post.
