Finally, I am making time to create the albums for my wedding and frame some prints! I never thought it would take me over a year but 2016 was a crazy one and I’m always busy with work so I have to carve out time for personal projects. After getting married in 2015 and totally loving the whole wedding planning process, I have started advertising weddings as a service I offer. I have been shooting weddings for years through referrals but with weddings being more unique, creative, and styled nowadays, I am shooting a lot more weddings! So now that wedding season is over, I have made the time to finish up projects with my own wedding photos and share them here on my blog.
On August 28, 2015 I married Michael Kieffer and since we are both editors of Auxiliary Magazine we playfully dubbed it the Auxiliary Wedding. I always thought my wedding would be very non-traditional but as we started planning I found I really wanted to do many of the traditions so our wedding became a balance between following along with tradition and making it our own.
Over five years ago myself and three other editors founded Auxiliary Magazine as a magazine for alternative fashion, music, and lifestyle. I had been shooting alternative fashion editorials for a while and couldn’t find the perfect outlet for them, so we created one. Since then I have had the privilege of working with countless photographers and writers and featuring countless designers, artists, and musicians. It has been a great five years!
To get Auxiliary to the next level and to send the magazine to print, we are pre-selling subscriptions via Kickstarter. Kickstarter is the best known crowd funding website and a great way for artists and musicians and other creatives to independently fund their projects. The Kickstarter is the first time Auxiliary has offered subscriptions and one of the rewards for backing is the first Auxiliary Magazine T-shirt, it’s very exciting for us!
Please consider backing and getting a digital or print subscription. You’ll see my photography (plus my editing, art direction, styling, and writing skills) in each issue plus tons of other amazing work from many other amazing creatives. There are only five days left to back so get all the details, watch the video, check out our rewards packages, subscribe, and help spread the word!
