Congratulations! My guess is if you are reading this section you just got engaged and have began that ultimate journey of finding a wedding photographer. The first bit of good news is I’m a wedding photographer. A passionate one at that!
You’ve read the articles and understand the importance of wedding photography. Armed with your “20 Questions to Ask Your Photographer” the searching is underway. This section is intended to give you a better understanding of my style, what to expect, and of course pricing information.
I try to embody a photojournalistic attitude when I photograph weddings. What exactly does that mean? Well my goal is to capture those candid moments that happen throughout the day. I’ll get a few of those posed photos to make Mom happy but I want you to look back and relive your wedding whenever you want. Rather it be a moment with your bridesmaids or the groom enjoying a drink with his fellas, those are what make your wedding special.
It’s All in the Details
Every piece of your wedding is special. You knew the moment when you found “the dress”. Earrings and shoes were close behind. Family keepsakes may be worn during the day to honor your grandparents. All of these items are dear to you and make your wedding unique. I make sure to photograph those details so you never forget that day, all of it. From wedding dresses to wedding rings and everything in between you will have it.
Bride and Groom
Many of today’s couples are choosing to do a “first look”. This is where the couple see each other before the ceremony. Typically the groom is off to a secluded spot and the bride approaches from behind. He turns to see her and the emotions come out! I am off in the distance photographing from afar as to not interrupt this sacred moment. When my clients ask about a first look, I always tell them I would do it if it were me. The reason is it’s the only time during the day when the bride and groom will have a few minutes alone. The day is filled with family and friends as it should be, but the bride and groom rarely have any time to themselves. Rather or not to do a first look is totally up to the couple and what they value.
Regardless of a first look I always get bride and groom portraits. Just the couple together before or after the ceremony. We head out to a fun spot where the light is fantastic and create some awesome images of the two of you. This is such a special time as the couple is amped up. This is truly one of the many highlights of photographing a wedding. Feeding off the energy of a couple in love and photographing their first minutes as husband and wife is truly special.
It’s Party Time
Ahh the reception, time to let loose and enjoy the night. From father-daughter dances to sparkler exits, the evening is alive! As a newly wed couple you guys are in high demand. Spending time with your guests, shaking it on the dance floor, and shoving cake in each other’s mouths are what the night is about. Many couples choose to do a grand exit, that may be with sparklers, bubbles, or confetti. What ever you choose I will be there capturing every second of it.
That’s a Wrap
There you have it. I encourage you to browse around my site to see more about me. If I seem like a good fit for you, I’d love to meet up and discuss your wedding day. Typically I meet clients at a local coffee shop (or tacos if they wish) so they can ask questions and get to know me better. If you are still here, thank you. You will find a contact link below. I look forward to hearing from you.
