When Mieke Snepvangers isn’t booked to shoot her own weddings, she is the first person Becca Rillo goes to when she needs a second camera on a shoot. Having “saved the day” on multiple occasions by taking photos of moments Rillo didn’t have time to capture herself, Snepvangers is always able to snap pick-up shots while Rillo photographs the couple, Rillo says. With a portfolio full of impressive attention to detail, raw emotion and great candid shots, Rillo says Snepvangers’s work speaks for itself. “I was blown away by her from day one,” she says. “I knew I had to have her. She is my rock, and I’m truly convinced that I couldn’t do what I do without her.”
