As a Millennial Business Owner, saying I am glued to my phone would be pretty accurate. Some of that time is spent on e-mails, some on research, some on client messages, but mostly - let’s be real here - mostly it’s on Instagram. And most days you’ll find me mumbling about how instagram is the worsssst and ugh how much I hate being on Instagram, you know, whiny millennial, right?
But here’s the thing…Some days I freaking LOVE Instagram. Not because my followers increased, or I got a lot of likes on a post, but because it leads you to meeting some freaking incredible humans. Casi Yost is one of those humans.
I discovered Casi through IG one day while scrolling through photos of a photography workshop I like to follow, and I was instantly hooked on her work! I followed her, she followed back, a little bit of mutual stalking and a well timed DM later, and next thing I knew, I had a dress shipped off to Oregon, where she is based.
Guys, Casi is a magic maker. Put her in a simple room with a model and chair (plus very talented hair and make up artists, and insane florists), and this is what you get. Simple, beautiful bridal portraits.
Gals and guys and everyone in between, invest in a photographer who will make magic for you. Invest in a photographer that will take time on your busy wedding day to get photos of you individually, and make you feel like a goddamn Queen (or King or Beyonce or whoever your power icon is)! Trust me, you will want these portraits one day. You will want to remember the quiet moments you had alone before seeing your partner- butterflies and jitters and excitement and all. And you will want to be able to look back and remember the person you were then- when your heart was full of nothing but overwhelming love and hope.
