Today we are pleased to feature Lilli Waters from I Got You Babe Enjoy ~
Q: Tell us about your studio, style and approach:
A: My studio (Castor & Pollux) is a little shared space that I started off with two photographer mates two years ago, and since then has welcomed some other talents, such as a designer, illustrator & painter.
My style of personal and wedding work differ, but my wedding work is a mix of documentary with whimsical & romantic notions. My approach is non intrusive and my intent is to capture the real 'in between' moments rather than create perfect poses.
Q: If you had to sum up your style in 1-2 sentences, what would you say.
A: My work is on the documentary, whimsical side of the wedding photography fence, looking for the intimate 'in between' moments, searching for light and beauty In unusual places, rather than traditional.
Q: How do you ensure you have a sustainable business?
A: As a single business owner, you need to make sure that your work is seen. Most of my bookings come from word of mouth, Instagram and bridal blogs. I think it's important to share your best work online and submit your work to blogs that suit your style, which can help you to get the clients that you want.
Q: What are your best selling products? do you sell in person?
A: My best selling products is my wedding photography packages and art books. I'm not really into being a salesman, clients choose their own packages based on their needs and a discount is offered for art books purchased when booking a package.
Q: What are your top 3 tips for success?
A: Three top tips to success? Hard work, good attitude, and hard work!
~ Stay tuned for more Q&A posts from our wonderful contributing photographers.

My husband and I craved some sun and sand for our honeymoon. We wanted to go on an adventure together, to come back with an awesome experience and not go on a “standard" honeymoon. We were able to settle on Cuba.
The turquoise waters of the Bahamas, the dramatic Rocky Mountains, the vistas of Iceland- endless romantic images pop into our minds when we think of destination weddings. And that is why, almost every wedding photographer at some point wants to give them a go.
So we’re going to tell you how to find them, book them, and prep for them.
The formula is simple.
clients you love + photography you are excited about + doing it your way = happy photographer
We think a shift should be made in photography. A happiness shift. You likely got into photography because you love taking photographs. And then the reality of making a living at it started to creep in, and you became bound to jobs you didn’t really want to do, because you needed the money. We’ve been there, and yep, it stinks.
