Q & A with Kate O’Connor with Sweetheart Empire

What inspired you to start your business?

I used to have a lifelong superpower of being invisible, because it made me feel safe. I was SHY. Through my own development, I learned to put myself out there, while still holding a safe space in my psyche. My current superpower is to create this safe space for others, so that they can be themselves, and let that humanness really shine.

What do you love about weddings?

I love the community aspect - bringing people and families together. I also love the rituals of getting ready, and the ceremony (obviously). And finally, I love the idea of standing before your tribe and stating this promise. Marriage is the ultimate hopeful act, and hope is what makes life worth living!

How would you describe your style?

Natural, joyful, honest.

What sets you apart from everyone else?

My open heart allows me to see you with eyes of love, and so that's what my photographs depict. Real life is this beautiful.

Do you have any special offers we can share?

I will be hosting a huge giveaway of 5 engagement/anniversary sessions this spring (value of $3250)! Keep an eye on my social media to find out how to enter. I am still taking bookings for 2019!
