Design Aglow's Wedding Week 2015: Meet James Frost

Tell us a little about yourself, where you live and how you got started in photography.
My name is James Frost. I am an international Wedding Photographer originally from Cornwall, UK. I spent my younger years growing up in Spain. Inspired by my Granddad, this is where my passion for photography started. It wasn't long before I picked up my own camera and fell in love with telling stories.



How do you describe your style?
My approach to wedding photography is photojournalistic. This allows me to capture weddings in the most honest way possible.



What or who really inspires you?
A lot of my inspiration comes from films. I also love to travel and shoot personal work, which keeps me inspired to try new stuff at weddings.



What are your top 3 tips for photographing weddings?
1. Be yourself and don't try be something you’re not.
2. Look at other non-wedding photography for inspiration.
3. Meet your clients before the wedding day so you can build trust and a good relationship with them.

Hi, I'm Casey, a floral and visual designer, specializing in creating stylized events and gatherings. More than that, I love putting together visuals for retail and residential spaces utilizing natural components and botanical elements. Serving as the Creative Director for PlantShed, a full service, floral boutique in Manhattan, I have worked closely with high fashion and couture designers, bespoke interior design firms, and textile companies to help produce cohesive and thoughtful designs. While typically inspired by nature and organic shapes, I enjoy experimenting with more structured design concepts, botanical textures, and other far-reaching design aesthetics. But I never really meant to live in New York City. I came here in 2011 to spend a summer and potentially expand my career as a floral designer. Landing odd jobs and working freelance in the industry was exciting and stressful at first, though I eventually found a home at PlantShed, a New York based floral and plant company. So, let me tell you about PlantShe

I started my photography career in 1990 and, as expected from a traditional film photographer, my career followed a familiar path that transitioned to shooting digital.
