A while back I had the pleasure of featuring Naturally Yours Events, who specializes in coordinating and styling Eco-Friendly Weddings and Events. Their blog is full of tips for making your day extra amazing, while also loving the Earth! Ever since I was able to connect with Carlene and interview her, I’ve been more conscious of the Earth and how wedding waste can be so impactful.
There are a couple of things I do as a photographer that cut down on waste. Namely, my clients view their image “proofs” in an online gallery instead of sorting through printed images while deciding which favorites will make the final cut in the album. Also, rather than clients receiving a USB drive with images, they are able to download them straight from their gallery. Additionally, all correspondence occurs online through a private client portal. This includes filling out questionnaires, emails, paying invoices, and signing your contract, just to name a few.
There are many other way to have an eco-friendly wedding so I was super stoked when I came across the article “10 Tips for Planning An Eco-Friendly Wedding.” My favorite of the 10 tips?! Serve locally sourced food! Since my European living experience and travels, I’ve come to love and appreciate locally sourced food in a way I never thought possible. Hello I love eating good food!!
