AMY HOSKINS PHOTOGRAPHY 2013 Wedding Guide
2013 THE Knot Best of Weddings
Hello-I’m AmyHoskins... See that picture down there on the le1 ‐ that’s me trying to pull oﬀ my best sexy look before I busted out laughing. See the picture on the right ‐ that’s my family. I have three girls and one super duper pa@ent husband! I wish I could say that I always wanted to be a wedding photographer, but that’s not true at all. All I ever really wanted to be was in a rock band ‐ some@mes life throws you a curve ball. I love all things KU, Waylon Jennings, vintage junk, and the color pink! I text too much, I drive too fast and if I ever come up missing you can probably ﬁnd me at Chipotle. I absolutely love my job and can’t imagine ever doing anything else. I get to do what I love and work with people on the I a happiest days of their lives! What could be beKer than that?! Thank you for considering me to be your wedding photographer! I look forward to hearing all about your big day and geNng to know you more!
Our Style - Is always fun and never boring! Our style is a mix of photojournalism and creative portraiture...For most of the day, we follow you around, staying out of the way, capturing your day as it’s happening. We absolutely LOVE getting real smiles, real tears, and real emotions. Real moments make the best photographs. We absolutely LOVE creative portraits! We love to scope out great backgrounds, find the best light and tell you to scooooch in close for some sweet, romantic, silly, happy, amazing shots that you definitely won’t find in your parent’s wedding album. We don’t strive to get pictures of how you look – de we strive to get pictures of WHO YOU ARE! We want your photos to show every ounce of what makes the two of you a couple! We also love when you bring accessories or fun little things to make your photos stand out. Go crazy and bring balloons, your dog, funky shoes, weird hats, signs and whatever else to make your photos pop. You can never bring too much to make your wedding photos amazing. The more whacky and off the wall stuff you bring the more outside the box your photos are going to be. Everyone has a little edge to them - this is your day - go wild and most importantly HAVE FUN! You will be so glad you did!
Engagement Sessions - Where the fun begins! Engagement sessions are SO much fun that we include a complimentary photo session and images with our 8 and 10 hour packages. We also do several a‐la‐carte engagement sessions for brides who only want engagement photos due to desAnaAon weddings, or for brides who have a certain amount budgeted to spend on images. We love engagement sessions because it gives us a chance to know each other beCer before your big day! Plus, there just cool to have! Whether you’re a cool, vintage style couple or an edgy and modern couple, we strive to capture your true personaliAes and oh‐so‐sweet relaAonship. Sessions are laid back, relaxed and never stressful! I guarantee a fun Ame, and when you get your images back you will be so happy that you have those fun pre‐wedding photos to share with all your friends and family. Bring your super fun personaliAes with you‐the more things you bring that describe who you are as a couple the more you will LOVE your images!
Boudoir Sessions - Because honey youâ€™re worth it!
