My dream is to create an experience with each client that is more than just stunning photographs. I truly get to know my clients on a whole new level before the big day and I use this connection to tell their stories. I love to capture love in natural, real-life ways.
TIPS FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY
When gathering the things you will need while getting ready the morning of your wedding, be sure to fill a bag with all the storytelling details that you want photographed. This may include your jewelry, garter, shoes, sentimental borrowed/vintage broach, rings, perfume and a copy of your wedding invitation. Having all these details in one place will help things go more smoothly for the photographer. As a photographer, I love taking pictures of your details. It is an important element in the storytelling of your day. As a bride and groom, you spend so much time planning and creating these details, we want to make sure they’re captured for you! Be sure to include a satin, wooden or special hanger for your wedding dress to hang on if you would like photos of your wedding dress hanging before you put it on.
When choosing a room to get ready in, think about the lighting. Is it small and dark without any windows? If so, you may want to reconsider the location of preparation and choose a more spacious and naturally well lit room. Natural light is the best light, after all. Also, when getting ready, have your bridesmaids put all their stuff in one corner of the room. This way there aren’t purses and meal wrappers in the background of your photos.
Considering a first look can be a great option for numerous reasons. It allows the bride and groom a sentimental and private moment together which can help calm nerves and be very memorable. Afterwards we are able to take your couple portraits before the business of the day begins. This will also give you more time later to enjoy your guests. You may have to consider a First Look especially if you’re planning a winter wedding, as you will lose daylight more quickly and have less time for pictures.
When making a wedding day timeline, do not be afraid to ask for help. I have experience in knowing what it takes for a wedding to run smoothly and on time. Make sure to plan on at least 2 hours either before or after the ceremony to capture family pictures, wedding party and bridal portraits. Allow enough time for travel from photo location to reception venue.
On your wedding day, it’s typically hard to schedule group/couple portraits around the best time of daylight (sunset; 6PM in summer). So instead stressing over the timeline of your day, try planning for just around 20 minutes that you and your bride or groom can disappear from the reception for just a short while to take some beautiful photos full of golden light!
