Imogen Stone MNDY Photography

 

We are excited to now be working with local photographer Mandy from MNDY Photography. Her style really compliments our stone products and we love printing her work. If you are looking for a photographer to capture your special day make sure to visit her website! We had a chance to ask her a few questions to learn more about her and her photography style as well as a few tips for displaying photos. Check it out below;

 

How did you get into wedding photography?

I’ve always really loved taking photos, whether it was taking an old film camera out on a weekend adventure or happy snaps on the dance floor (most of the time this wasn’t a great idea!) I’ve always been happiest with a camera in my hands. But it wasn’t until my cousin asked me to take photos at her wedding that I had an inkling this was truly my calling. It was an intimate wedding, so the photos were shared far and wide and the gush of love I got from not only the Bride and Groom but so many of their friends, was so heart warming. It gave me such confidence and sense of purpose. As cliche as it sounds, I've always been an unapologetic lover of love, so naturally I am drawn to weddings.

What three words would you use to describe your photography style?

Authentic, free-flowing (is a hyphenated word one or two?) and heartwarming. 

From a wedding day, what do you see as important to you to convey through your photography?

I want the couple to look at their photos and be transported back to the day. I want them to remember what it felt like, what it sounded like and what it smelt like. I want the people who weren’t at the wedding to look at the wedding photos and feel like they were there. I want to convey the love, the emotion, the mood and the vibes. If all of those can be translated through a collection of images, I’ve done my job.

What happens to the photos after they are complete?

I like to ask my clients, “how many times in the past 12 months have you opened photos on your computer or a dusty photo album from the back cupboard, sat down and looked through them (PS. Insta doesn't count)” Some answer once, or maybe twice, but most answer zero; and what a waste! People spend a lot of their hard earned mulla on getting a pro to capture special life moments and the results are hiding away, gathering dust (or viruses) and not being appreciated like they deserve. With life as fast paced as it is these days, there's less and less time to sit down with a glass of vino or cuppa tea and just reminisce. You know that feeling? That fleeting flutter in your tummy when you look at a photo from your family holiday 2 years ago or relive the moment of pure happiness 15 minutes after you said "I do"  - how wonderful to feel that every day when you walk into your living room. Hence why I'm such a big advocate for displaying photos (and hence why I've partnered with Imogen Stone!)

 What advice would you give to a couple on their wedding day?

In the lead up, plan like you're the planner for a millennium New Years Eve party. On the day, delegate like you're leaving the office for a 4 week vacay. After the wedding, kiss every night before bed.

Can you give us two top tips for displaying photos?

If you’re a perfectionist like me, it can be so overwhelming trying to decide which photos, out of hundreds, to hang on the walls. Especially when you’re wanting to frame a collection of photos together. So here’s two simple things to help you out.

1) Choose photos with similar colours. They will blend together better and when you look at the collection they will look more like one big piece rather than five individual ones. So select one key colour and try and make sure that colour, or shade of that colour, is in every photo.

2) Steer clear of the thought that every photo needs to have people in it, or that framing a photo of a close up object is a waste. That close up of the dusty pink peonies that match a shade in the bridesmaid dress in another photo; the perfect companion to add support and texture to finish off your collection.

    Brisbane Retailers

    Imogen Stone retailer

    As most of you know Imogen Stone is an online business and whilst photos look amazing online, we're always blown away by the feedback and response we get from people when they view our products in person. With this in mind, we would love the opportunity to get our range of beautiful stonewares in front of more locals and so are looking for a Brisbane based retail store who would be interested in showcasing a range of our prints on stone!

    If you’re a store owner, or know someone, with a similar brand ethos and aesthetic, then we would love to talk with you. We are interested in having a display of our prints on stone on your wall or on our visual merchandising stand so we can introduce our brand and product range to your lovely customers. The benefit for your store is you’ll be showcasing a range of quality, handcrafted stoneware’s that are something completely different and unique to the Brisbane market. The prints on stone are a great talking point with customers and we have received some amazing feedback about the range and quality of craftsmanship. We would also be promoting our involvement with your store via our social pages, blog and eDM database to build awareness and encourage our existing community to visit your store to view your wares and also our stone prints.

    We also have an option for ‘pick up’ for the right store. This would be mean that our Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and Gold Coast customers would be given a pickup option, and have their order delivered to your store to collect. Payment would be managed via Imogen Stone and would be a wonderful opportunity to bring more foot traffic into your store and for potential add-on sales. There would be no cost to the store owner, and we would be happy to theme the imagery in line with the aesthetic of your brand and store. We would also be willing to update the prints each season, ensuring the display is kept fresh and up-to-date.  

    If you are interested or would like more information we would love to hear from you. Please email Tyneal at hello@imogenstone.com.au
