So I had a crazy thought back a few months ago. What if I had an intern? I love mentoring and I knew how important it was to get my first few weddings under a well known photographer. I started thinking of students at Kendall, where I just graduated, and Gabby came to mind. She had expressed an interest in learning more about the commercial side of photography and more specifically, weddings. I contacted her and we quickly set up a time to meet. I loved her energy and we clicked instantly. Gabby will be coming with me to 4 weddings, one of which was the amazing wedding in Grand Ledge this last weekend.
I asked her a few questions to introduce her to you and I hope you’ll join me in welcoming her to the team!
What got you excited to work with Liv Lyszyk Photography?
Liv’s style with her work caught my attention. She makes the photographs seem as if she took them with film, which is something I very much enjoy. And it’s obvious to see that she really loves doing wedding photography. Every time I saw her posting about each one, she seemed so excited about the experience she just went through. She is also a very nice and down-to-earth human being, and I could tell we’d get along great.
“Fake it ’till you make it.” People don’t really know how experienced or unexperienced you may be. Just keep your head high, speak confidently, and be positive, and it’ll all fall into place. I’m hoping, at least, that this works in all scenarios…
I’m so excited to work with Gabby these next few months. She was an incredible help and an awesome person to have with me on our first wedding and I’m excited to watch her grow!
