Photography Week IV: Christine Gallagher
Next is another talented Atlanta photographer: Christine Gallagher…
Do you shoot digital or film?
How would you describe your style?
I hate labels but I consider my work to be editorial.While photojournalism may tell the story of the day, the details, the fashion, your family, those things also tell a story about you!
Do you shoot alone or do you usually have an assistant?
I always work with an assistant.
How soon after the wedding can your clients see photos?
4 weeks after the event , story board on the blog within one week.
Do you provide an online proof gallery where clients can preview the photos?
Yes, via www.pictage.com
Will you accept a job in another state or country?
Have my bags packed now!
How did you get started as a photographer?
If you asked my parents this question they would say that I just woke up one day and decided to be a photographer! I majored in photography in college & I have always loved its ability to document life.
GIVE US YOUR TOP THREE TIPS FOR BRIDES…
1. Pick someone who’s personality you mesh with! The photographer-client relationship is an important one, make sure the person is not only a good photographer but someone you are going to enjoy having around you for the planning process, the whole wedding day and after.
2. All the talent in the world doesn’t do you any good if your photographer fails to show up! So look for someone with a good business sense as well as talent!
3. Feel free to ask your photographers advice when planning the day. We have been around the block a few … 100 times & know a thing or two about weddings!
We have had the pleasure of sharing clients with Christine – she did a beautiful job of capturing Adrienne and Zealous’s wedding last Spring. To see more of Christine’s work, be sure to visit her website and blog!
