Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
I love couples who truly understand that the day is about the marriage and the wedding is a celebration to share that commitment with those closest to you. It’s very rare in life to be in a room where you can say that every person there loves you and you love them. Rare indeed. And I am so blessed that couples I’ve met through APW have become friends and I’ve watched as their coupledom has blossomed into a little family.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
I love weddings because they are a blend of portraiture, still, editorial, and photojournalism. Essentially, weddings represent my favorite aspects of photography. I hope to capture every wedding uniquely as no two weddings are ever the same. I want each couple to forever look at their photos and think, “Yes, Cherry captured us and we look GOOD!”
I also offer a photo booth!
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
I can never read enough, travel enough, learn languages enough, watch movies enough, or eat sushi enough! Besides those hobbies I love laughing with my husband of 14 years and also doing anything to make my 4-year-old niece laugh.
What’s your favorite book?
That is such a TOUGH question to ask a bookworm! I would have to say that I’m a groupie for these authors: Jane Austen, J.R. Rowling, Simon Winchester, Michael Lewis, and Thomas L. Friedman, Ray Bradbury, and Madeleine L’Engle. Do authors usually have groupies??
What’s your favorite movie?
I can watch any end-of-the-world movie over and over and over… (much to the chagrin of my husband). Terminator 1 and 2, 2012, Day After Tomorrow, Independence Day, Armageddon, Deep Impact, should I keep listing them?
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
Two songs create insta-dance party at my desk: “Get Into the Groove” by Madonna and “Sunday Morning” by No Doubt.
Explain your travel policy.
No travel fees for Los Angeles, San Francisco, and all areas between. Fees do apply for areas south of Los Angeles and north of San Francisco and for destination weddings but please ask because it may be more affordable than you think! I love to travel so I am more than happy to work with couple’s budgets.
