Staff Update 2013 #2 – Cass is Awesome

I find it hard to quantify my work sometimes – I keep joking that I wonder how long I can keep fooling people for because I honestly feel like I just point and shoot. But one of the words that keeps coming up when people are being far too kind and taking the time to tell me what they think of my work is “intimate”. For a while I didn’t know what that meant but now I honestly feel that I do. And it sums up what I felt about Cass’ work the first time that I saw it. There’s a certain je ne sais quoi about her work which makes it so stunningly beautiful. And I believe that intimate is probably the perfect word to describe it.

In my mind, Cass’ work felt seamless to mine and considering how many weddings I couldn’t do due to being already booked, it made sense to ask her whether she wanted to work with me. Cass excitedly agreed and as of now, she will be shooting as part of our little business here. It’s a decision that was so easy because not only is her work beautiful, her heart is too. All of the stuff that Kristen and I talk about “being nice” and genuinely caring about what we do and the world around us is natural and intrinsic to Cass as well. We connected as photographers but we more importantly connected as people which is one of the things that’s truly necessary for me in every wedding that I shoot.

So what that means now is that we have twice as many availabilities each year – double the time, double the photography, double the awesomeness.

We’ll be blogging Cass’ weddings on the website in the coming weeks and months but in the meantime, this is a very small selection of my most favourite images of hers.

So without any further ado, meet Cass, her wonderful heart and her all seeing camera.

    Every now and then you meet people who touch your heart and inspire your soul.
    I had the privilege of meeting Lucky and Kristen at their Be Nice Workshop. I also met Cass there.
    She is a warm kind and intelligent woman who does awesome work!!

    When I saw the ‘staff update 2013 – Cass is Awesome’ blog note, It made my day!!!

    Lucky is right, there is a certain something about Cass, Her work is beautiful, it’s engaging, it is a reflection of her.
    There will definitely be twice as much good stuff going on with Cass on board.

    This is the best news I’ve heard in ages!! I’m so happy for you all! Cass’s photos captured my imagination from the moment I saw them, and meeting her in person shows why they’re so special. Her humility and warmth is evident in every shot she takes and I can’t think of a better partnership of like-minded yet strongly individual people.

    I look forward to seeing twice as much amazingness on the blog and in my Facebook feed.

    Great news guys. Double the ‘be niceness’.
