Updated: Apr 8, 2020

With everything going on in the world, we want to shine a little light on a special team member! Destiney has been with Above The Mist for over 5 years and has continued to grow. This past quarter she received the most 5 star reviews! We are so proud of her! We wanted to give her to opportunity to tell everyone a little bit about herself and what she enjoys about her job. Check it out!

How long have you worked at Above the Mist Weddings?

I have worked with ATM since I was 15. Everyone is like second family to me. I have loved working for an amazing company.

Tell us your funniest wedding story.

There have been so many. But my favorite is I had one wedding the groom was very nervous, and accidentally dropped the ring and started swearing, luckily it didn’t slip through the cracks of the deck.

Which is your favorite ATM venue and why?

The Mountain for photography its perfect there are many different places you can go, but the view is hard to beat.

What is your most embarrassing moment at a wedding?

I was at the mountain and it had rained really hard the night before and it was muddy. I was moving around shooting and lost my balance and slid in the mud. So the rest of the wedding and after I had mud all over me.

What is your favorite flower?

Pink Peonies

Favorite Entrance Song?

River Flows in You by Yiruma. It is what I walked down the aisle to . It’s instrumental piano and beautiful.

Favorite Exit Song?

Unbelievable by Diamond Rio

What is your favorite cake flavor?

Strawberry Explosion, its the best. It’s heaven when you eat it.

What is your favorite ATM Moment?

All of it. This company has so many amazing women working for it, and we all get along so well. Everyday is an adventure with these ladies.

Any tips for our Brides?

Sending photos is the best thing to do. It helps give a visual on what you want. Pinterest is your best friend. It will give you so many ideas and help narrow down what you want.

What’s your favorite style?

Boho and country.

What's your favorite part of a wedding to photograph?

All of it. I love shooting weddings sometimes you have so much going on you don’t remember everything. I love that I am able to gift not only photos but memories of that day. Sometimes I am able to capture things you don’t see. Like your mom, sisters face when they are helping you into the gown. Your bridesmaids faces during the ceremony.

What’s a weird/unusual tip you tell your couples?

There are two. I always tell my ladies that i know when people are looking at us we want to look at the floor. But you have to try your best and look up. Another is when I am taking pictures. I always tell them yes I am going to pose you but don’t be afraid to be yourself, move your hands get close to each other make each other laugh. The more you are yourselves the better.

What do you like to do when you are away from work?

I love to be with my little boy and husband. Everything I do, I do for them . I also love my other job as well being a special education TA has been pure joy.
