Today we’d like to introduce you to Josie Brooks.
Hi Josie, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I am a wedding and lifestyle photographer with an emotional + editorial approach. My work is an expression of what I am most passionate about storytelling, love, and passion. I see the beauty in everything and everyone. I have been photographing couples and families for the last five years, full time. My joy is capturing love, joy, emotion and sharing that all in one image. Besides photographing, I love Jesus, my hubby, my children, and the simple moments we get to share.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back, would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It was for sure not easy to get to where I am today. But with hard work, anyone is capable of what they put their mind to!
Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
FAV THINGS ABOUT WHAT I DO FOR A LIVING ⌒ Serving my clients and giving them a great stress-free experience. ⌒ Producing tangible gifts through my lens for a lifetime. ⌒ Bonding with everyone on the day, or watching and photographing those bonds. ⌒ Going on adventures with my couples. ⌒ Different cultures and beliefs. ⌒ Fur babies/kiddos on shoots. ⌒ Breaking traditions. ⌒Emotions or tears at weddings! Ahh, ⌒Couples who aren’t afraid to try new things. ⌒Moments over mountains, always! ⌒ Spoiling my couples with things they don’t expect (the experience). ⌒ Golden hour light!!
What matters most to you? Why?
My family and of course, Jesus. I wouldn’t be who I am or where I am today without them. They are everything to me.
