Today we’d like to introduce you to Alejandra Aragon.
So, before we jump into specific questions about what you do, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started in 2016 taking photos of families and children. I loved every moment of photographing kids especially the younger toddlers that never stopped running around. Capturing those authentic giggles and hugs by parents were what fueled me when I started. A little while after I was offered the opportunity to capture a wedding for one of the couples who I had done holiday photos for. I was hooked on to weddings after that. Being present throughout a full day of pure loving and happiness between two people and their families brings a certain type of joy and love into my own life.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc. – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
It has definitely not been a smooth ride! Between learning business practices, providing the best customer experience and finding myself as a photographer it has been a whirlwind of a ride. As a rather new photographer, you find yourself comparing your work to other photographers who have been creating art for many years and you start doubting yourself. You need to realize that they didn’t start with 20 weddings a year, they started with just a handful and then year by year added more and more weddings and bookings and grew in experience and knowledge. I think we are our worst critic but if it’s not for us pushing ourselves, then who will?
We’d love to hear more about your business.
Third Love Wedding photography specializes in wedding photography for the modern yet classic couple. I believe we have a timeless style and capture authentic moments from the start to the end of one of the biggest days in your life. I’m not just “your wedding photographer,” I become your best friend and your hand to guide you along on this epic journey of wedding planning. I make jokes throughout the day to keep my couples in good spirits when they might be getting stressed out. Something I’m most proud of is the capability to be myself 100% day in and day out with all my couples. I’ll never make it an awkward occasion and you’ll always receive my honesty regarding anything that has to do with your wedding.
What were you like growing up?
Growing up, I was an introverted extrovert. Does that make any sense? Haha, I opened up and became the life of the party but only with those who I felt comfortable around and would be shy and quiet with people I didn’t really vibe with. I loved doing all sports! Soccer, cheerleading, dance, softball, you name it and I probably did it. Oh! I also did MMA for a short while, one of my favorites. Learning how to precisely take down your opponent and strengthening your body and mind were amazing to me growing up.
