What do you do when your wedding is over and you don’t want to talk about it?
Well, you could write your own book!
This is the case with the recent launch of an indie book written by a couple who were married to each other and their wedding photographer.
In The Wedding Singer, the author, Lauren L. Smith, and her husband, Jeff Smith, set out to find a wedding photographer that was qualified to provide a wedding ceremony that they would both love.
Smith and her team were able to secure the services of a wedding photography company, which provided both wedding services and wedding dress design.
The book features photos of the couple and their new wedding dress, along with some insight into how it all went down.
Smith shared with the audience how she and her fiancé approached the wedding business, their personal goals, and how they came up with the idea for the book.
Smith said that the idea came from a time in her life when she wanted to write a book about her wedding day, but it was something that she was never really comfortable with writing about.
“I was never comfortable writing about myself and I was never uncomfortable writing about other people,” she said.
She said that she and Jeff were both very protective of the details and the process of their wedding.
“So when we had the conversation about how we wanted to present ourselves to the world, we didn’t really want to put anything on the table,” she continued.
Smith explained that she knew that she had a great story to tell about her engagement, but she was always a little wary of what she was writing about, so she didn’t want the story to be written into a book.
She explained that they didn’t know exactly how much they wanted to get married, and she felt like she needed to share the experience with the world.
The wedding photographer was a professional, but the story they shared was all about how they had both made the sacrifices to get to this point, and their story was that they did it for each other.
The story that Smith and Jeff shared with their audience was the same story as many wedding photographers and wedding directors experience every single day.
They have to make the sacrifices, and they have to take a lot of risks to get there, but they also have to have the trust that their wedding is going to be a great one.
It was the kind of story that could be shared in books, but there are no book clubs to give away copies to.
Smith spoke with the author about how the wedding photography industry is not a big company, and that it’s not a huge business to begin with.
“We had the wedding, and then we got the wedding,” she explained.
“But the way it was set up, I felt like we had to be doing the whole wedding for us.”
It is a story that she said she and Jeffrey were very proud of, and the couple feels that their story is something that could not be shared anywhere else.
The couple’s book is available to purchase right now, but Smith says that she has had some people contact her asking for copies to be distributed, so it is not going to disappear from shelves anytime soon.
The two hope to bring the book to other wedding photographers who want to share their wedding experiences with the public.
“This is really something that we didn.
I am excited to share it with anyone who wants to be,” she added.
The author shared that she thinks the book could be an inspiration for other wedding directors and wedding photographers, and is currently looking for a wedding planner to write an introduction for it.
Smith hopes that other wedding couples will be inspired to take their wedding photography to the next level.
“My book is not for everybody, but for everyone who wants their wedding to be better,” she shared.
“You know what, I can’t think of anything better than sharing your story and your wedding day with the rest of the world.”
Smith hopes to share her story with other couples and wedding planners in the future, and hope that others will be encouraged to be the next couple to take the leap.
Smith added that she hopes that she can help make her own story as a photographer, too.
“It’s a really exciting time right now.
It’s really exciting to be sharing my story, and I hope it’s inspiring for other people to take that leap,” she told the audience.
“Just because you’ve had your wedding doesn’t mean that you can’t go on and do more,” she concluded.
The Wedding Starters interviewed Lauren L Smith about her book, The Wedding Singers, at the 2016 wedding of her partner, Jeff.
Smith is a wedding director and wedding photographer in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Smith has worked with couples for over 20 years.
She has also worked as a wedding producer, wedding photographer, and wedding videographer.
