THE REAL RANDY FENOLI (AKA 'Say Yes To The Dress')
On the 15th and 16th September I had the opportunity to photograph Randy Fenoli's one off visit to the UK at New Hall, Sutton Coldfield, Birmingham. The event was organised by The Wedding Bells of Four Oaks and I had the pleasure of working with Nicola from Daffodil Waves Photography, documenting his talk with both brides and other wedding industry professionals. Randy's TV programme 'Say Yes to The Dress' is huge in the States and currently airs on Sky's TLC over here. It is reality TV at its finest and reveals the inner workings of the world's premier bridal salon, Kleinfeld Bridal. Here's a little intro to the programme. Although initially poo-pooing the idea of Reality TV, Randy spoke very passionately about the women that appear on the show. This is the bit that interested me too. He spends a lot of time getting to know the bride before finding the right dress. His aims are to: - Educate - Elevate - Empower I couldn't agree more. The most important thing on your wedding day is how you feel. The right dress will make you feel confident, self-assured and relaxed. He has some excellent advice over on his website The right wedding photographer should make you feel the same. See where I'm going with this? There are so many variables on your wedding day, you want to know you have found the right photographer for you. You need to make sure you are a good match. So the real Randy Fenoli I found to be utterly charming, energetic and passionate. He LOVES WOMEN and spent so much time answering questions, taking selfies and generally making people feel great in his presence. He also spoke about bridal wear being 'in is blood'. He openly stated if you are not passionate about it, then you're not in the right job. Well Randy, you were exquisite, reality TV aside, you were born to do what you do, which is make women feel incredible. Here's a photo of Randy and me.
