Friday Introductions | Relationship is a must.

Good morning! Todays post will be a bit different from the usual! A little more word-heavy (shocking I know…I’m not your usual wordy girl). But I wanted to share a little bit form the heart. So bear with me!


You all see the pretty photos, my gorgeous clients, swoon-worthy venues, and bouquets that are so beautiful you want your screen to be a scratch-and-sniff! But what you often don’t see is who I am as a person. Yes, I am more than a girl with a camera. I’m a  wife, a daughter, sister, aunt, friend and many other things. So I want to be taking the next few weeks (every Friday) to introduce you to a part of who I am and I hope that by getting to know me, you’ll understand why I do what I do. And why what I do is such a huge part of who I am!

So lets get to it! Hi, Riette Farthing here! The name and face behind Clearly Perceived Photography. I’m a people-person! Though I’m introverted by definition, being around people I care about is what energizes me. Relationships in life are so important to me and I value them and guard them with every fiber of my being. I will do much of anything for the people I love and care about.

That being said, my clients become my friends and so if you need me, I’m here for you! If you have no clue how to pin a boutonnière, don’t worry, I’ve got your back! If your bustle is so complicated that no one can figure it out, it’s ok, I’ve got this too! If you invite me to your house for dinner, I will be there (likely with a bottle of my favorite Trader Joes red wine in hand).

Yes, that’s me pinning the groom’s boutonnière!

Your success becomes my success! I’ll be cheering you on in your wedding planning – stressful as it can be! I’ll be there doing my best calming your pre-ceremony nerves and I will continue cheering for you after your wedding day is said and done – because your marriage is important! I won’t drop off the face of the earth once time time is put in!

I hope you’ve enjoyed getting to know a little bit about me and that you’ll come back next week for another edition of Friday Introduction!
