holly blair photography

I never want a couple to feel like their day is being squeezed in between a photographer's other larger and/or more traditional weddings. Your day is not an afterthought simply because it's unique. Just because something is different doesn't mean it's less special. It's your freaking wedding day! That's one of the most important days of your life! Whether you do it at a cabin or a castle or a cactus doesn't discount the importance of that. Which is why my prices for elopements or a small wedding are the same. For ease and for the fact that I believe your wedding's value doesn't decrease along with the guest list.

hell yes?

Marriage has a long history, and an ever evolving one. So why not continue that evolution? What of those traditions are applicable to today's world? Do we know why we are doing them? Do we like the reasons? Something that was based on class, law, children and taxes has become something steeped in love, intimacy and choice. Why not reflect that in your expression of it?

 

For some, the idea of being on display for a huge group of people for such an intimate moment (such as getting married!!) is...not ideal. If you're someone who gets an immediate stomachache at imagining a giant wedding filled with endless decisions, opinions, badly lit banquet halls and crowds of people (half of whom you don't even know), I am here to tell you that it's OKAY! You don't have to do that! You don't have to ignore that part of you to have an incredible day. There are so many other options. There is no choice more intensely personal, after all, than whom you choose to marry; that choice tells us, to a large extent, who you are. And so, I argue, why is HOW you marry not worth evaluating?

"whatever it is, let it be you..."

curious?

I want to help you create an experience of getting married that’s representative of your true selves. Weddings are just parties for marriages. You can do whatever you want at a party.

I gravitate to smaller wedding experiences because I believe they allow for the focus to be on your relationship and the commitment you're making to each other, rather than the expectations, opinions or traditional concepts or ideas. If we are the ones that created the ideas behind traditions, can't we just make new ones?
