WayItWas Photography is Changing!

New Website, new changes...
(Waterford, On.)

I am so pleased to announce that we will be now be offering destination photography packages as well with WIWP's photographer Crystal Sanderson.
Deirdre has been creating a new look with a cool easy to use website www.wiwp.photography 
Check it out!

Over the last year I(Deirdre) have been focusing on what kind of photography I find the most happiness in. I love it all but weddings, engagements, maternity and 1st birthday photos are what stand out the most to me. With this new look and new packaging we will be specializing in those 4 areas of photography as well as creative out of the box sessions, and less on newborn, family and mini sessions.
We will operate on an idea at a time, you need photos and create a special one of a kind session for you.
Some sessions I offer are my bath sessions located in an antique claw foot tub on my property. I can do milk baths, fruit baths, Nutella sessions, spaghetti sessions, bubble baths the list goes on.
Looking for a one of a kind family photo session? Try my paint fight family session! Located in a quiet park in Oakland with a stream to wash up in. Bring as many as you like, all ages. We have photographed 3 and everyone loved it! It really captures your true spirit and nature!

Thanks for taking the time to read on through, I really am excited for these next years to come, photography is changing and it's changing in a great way! No more stiff bored sittings, more smiles, fun and play!

Contract Wedding Photographer
Contract Job
WayItWas Photography is looking to expand its wedding services with a third team mate. Up until this year I have been working as a team with Crystal to provide non traditional wedding photography, but this year I have had to turn away so many weddings due to double booking that I know now it's time to expand again.
What I need is a photographer with at least 3 years experience or 10 weddings under their belt, who shoots weddings in the photo-journalistic style of wedding photography, can work 2-12 hour weddings comfortably and reliably alone, has a full G licence and reliable vehicle, shoots in manual mode comfortably and easily, has professional grade cameras x2, lenses and flashes.
I need an easy going, cheerful spirit with tonnes of enthusiasm and creativity as I am known for my creative wedding photography.
I am asking for resumes, references from past clients x3, a portfolio of your work and a list of your equipment.
I am offering 5-10 weddings per year, no editing, use of 25 chosen images for your portfolio and great pay plus a free meal and who doesn't like a free wedding meal :)
Do you have what it takes to keep up with my growing wedding business? Contact me to set up your interview!
Can't wait!!
