Trash The Dress Inspiration

This session by Gillian Gauthier is so sublime...who would have guessed the water was absolutely freezing!?! (Now that's a great model.) When I asked Gillian how she helps the bride feel so comfortable during a shoot, she replied with some great advice, "The longer the (TTD) session, the more comfortable your client feels. Everyone usually starts off a bit nervous, but the more fun, the crazier, the sexier, the better for your bride! Make sure you tell your bride she looks fabulous when she hits that perfect pose or look you are going for and encourage her to be dramatic and sexy and mysterious ... the more relaxed you are, as well, the more relaxed your client will be. Remember to have a BLAST with your client as that will show up in the images." I'd say it definitely shows up...don't you agree?

As a lifelong fine artist, I didn’t fall in love with photography until post-college. I was a graphic design major who landed a non-creative position in the industry. Upon searching for a creative outlet, and being the hopeless romantic that I am, I discovered wedding photography and was immediately hooked. I poured everything I had into learning the medium so that I could eventually start my own business, which happened a couple of years later in 2012 — also the year I was married.

I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Portland, but catering to clients across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. As a child, I never imagined that I would pursue photography. I didn’t even own a DSLR until I was 21! However, I remember the day I decided I wanted to learn the ins and outs of photography. I used my college textbook money to buy my first Canon Rebel from Craigslist. I was jumping up and down with joy and scratching my head at the same time because I knew photography would not be simply a hobby.

I was born and raised in Southern California, and recently moved to Oregon with my husband. We just had our first baby and are so in love! I’ve always had an interest in art and have always wanted to pursue a career in a creative field. I took my first photography class in high school, and fell in love. My parents bought me my first camera for graduation and I decided to get my degree in photography. Toward the end of college, I was blessed with an internship with a wedding photographer where I was able to turn my formal education into a practical business. After lots of shadowing, second shooting, and promoting my work, business started coming in and eventually evolved into what it is today!
