Lavishly Lux owner, Misha Wynn recently took the time out to talk about serving brides and brides to be as well as what inspires her. Check it out:
1) Tell us a little about your background and how you got started in the wedding and events industry?
My first profession is architecture. It may seem strange but I’ve never liked being placed in a box. Anything outside of the box was right up my alley. There has always been a love for critical thinking, designing, dreaming, drawing, creating and anything arts related. As far as wedding photography, I’ve also had a fascination for love and art. I guess that’s why becoming a wedding photographer wasn’t far fetched.
We are comprised solely of women so we understand a bride’s needs and we are passionate about love stories. We know everyone is different so we approach each shoot in a way that reflects your personality, style, and culture. When you look at your pictures, we want to you to feel the warmth, the joy, and the love of your special day all over again. Last but not least, a portion of our efforts go to Alzheimer’s and cancer organizations as well as sponsoring events that promote other women entrepreneurs. We love to give back!
2) What do you love most about your job?
In a world of uncertainty, war, fighting and hatred, I believe love is always consistent, true love that is. I’ve found being amongst love inspires me to believe that there is a lot more to life. I enjoy being in the presence of love at weddings.
3) What would you suggest for those looking for uncommon and/or unconventional settings for their engagement session?
I would say go for it! My specialty is uncommon and unconventional. I like to encourage couples to incorporate their personalities, hobbies and personal interests into their engagement session or wedding. They should know that this day is about them and not for the impression of others. Luxury is not about spending a lot of money, but about a quality of life. We will follow you as far out of the box as you want to go.
4) What has been your most challenging and rewarding wedding this year and why?
I booked a last minute wedding in August with a couple that had their wedding photographer cancel a week before their wedding. This was challenging because I had no time to prepare, I had never been to the venue and the couple was rushed and desperate. I would never want a couple to book me out of desperation. The wedding was beautiful and the pictures came out great! I hoped that the stress of the situation wouldn’t show in their pictures, and it didn’t.
5) What’s something that recently left you inspired?
My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s Disease a few years ago and I noticed with the progression of her disease, diminished memory and cognitive ability was her ability to still show love. This is definitely why I say God’s greatest gift to man is love. She has inspired me to stay positive, continue to move forward and always give and express love toward others.
