Paige Young

About Me:

I’m Paige. I consider myself an artist, more so than a ‘wedding photographer,’ because I like to create and really make connections with people.

My photography style is one that reflects the personalities of who I am photographing. I am more of a storyteller than someone who ‘makes up’ dreamy images. I use a variety of posed imagery, lifestyle imagery (unposed), fine art based images, and quirky moments and candids that tell the story of my clients.

My workflow is one that is not heavily edited, but I do like to play around with more fine art based photography. This means that I will not alter your body when I edit your images. I love how you look, and I think you should too. I do edit out the occasional zit when I find it necessary, but I won’t alter a body to reflect a body that does not exist. I think our world needs to slow down and find acceptance in people, and altering body types is a way to go against that mindset, as well as make the unattainable body ‘ideal’ even more unattainable… and to be honest I want my clients to look at their images knowing they are beautiful in every way, and they exist.

Who Am I?

I am a laid back photographer, but high strung person. Meaning, I am very organized in my personal life and workflow, but very laid back on wedding days and during engagement sessions. The more chill I am, the more relaxed you’ll be, thus the more you will enjoy your time.
I photograph a ton for fine art work: seen here. I exhibit a lot of work in galleries and fight for equality among all human beings. I am passionate about social justice. I am passionate about loving all human beings. I also am a huge advocate in changing the wedding industry to be more inclusive with race, genders, sexualities as well as body types, too. I want all sizes, races, and people to be represented in magazines and online.
I pride myself on being able to work with any type of person and my job at the end of the day is to document. So, I’m not afraid of working with any one different than me – in all categories of difference. My first and foremost concern is making art.

I have been published in over 300 wedding blogs and have been in several printed wedding magazines.
