It’s time again to highlight another great vendor in the Charlotte area! Here at Magnificent Moments Weddings, we love nothing more than sharing these great vendors and the people who work there with you, our clients. This week’s vendor spotlight is on Amy Kolo Photography and the amazing skills they have to offer!
Amy Kolo Photography is an amazing photography company serving the greater Charlotte area. Owner Amy Kolodziej is truly one of the best and it shows in every picture she takes. Her work has been featured in numerous publications including, Brides, Style Me Pretty, and Southern Living. And if that doesn’t sound impressive, she is one of the sweetest people I have ever met! Since she is so wonderful, I decided to sit down with her, to get the skinny on all things Amy Kolo Photography. Here is what she shared:
How many weddings do you generally do per year?
Generally, my goal is 15 and I stop at 20. I like to feel fresh and excited about every wedding and if I am working every weekend that isn’t possible 🙂
What are some of your favorite “different” things you have seen couples do at their wedding?
I don’t know if it is considered “different” anymore, but I love when couples include their animals! I’ve had everything from piglets to puppies and it infuses such a joyful moment into the wedding. Nothing makes a smile more genuine than a pet. I also really enjoy when a couple pays less attention to trends and more attention to what they truly want their wedding to look like for THEIR relationship. It makes a huge difference when every detail ties back to the couple instead of just being another pretty piece that was purchased.
What is your favorite part about working in the wedding industry?
By far, my favorite part about this industry is the people I’ve met and the friendships I’ve made! It is easy to become overwhelmed when you are dealing with the biggest day of someone else’s life and having amazing vendor partners has made it so much easier to relax and enjoy this job!
Best piece of advice to a newly engaged couple?
My best piece of advice is to always hire a planner 😉 But really, a planner just takes so much pressure off of everyone involved in the wedding. I love to work on a team that is led with purpose and a joint goal.
