I can’t emphasize enough how important it is to take a little extra time to play with your photographer. If you have followed my work for a while you may recognize this wonderful couple. I figure we spent an hour for just the two of them on their wedding day… but we did it in 3 twenty minute chunks so they weren’t out of the guest loop for very long at any given time.
Maybe you think that’s too much time but can you imagine not having the really special portraits? I didn’t think so.
Work with me. ;0)
Tyson’s cadre of young men took the time to work with the camera… the space dictated the mood and they ran with it. Sometimes the groomsmen get the short straw in the group photos but these guys made sure they got their share and that pleases me.
The short one had some pretty darn sharp patent leather boots of her own going on but she had traveling ideas about Nancy’s fancy shoes. The last I saw of her that afternoon, she was walking slowly towards the front door in her white anklets and those red, red shoes.
In our corner of paradise we get to work in soft vineyard light and magical beach light… all of those weddings have a really fine chance to shine. However, you can also count on just the right light in our downtown streets… it’s just a matter of experience and persuasion. I say it that way because I can see the light when it is ready but I have to make my couples understand that the time is now…. the window is limited.
I have a couple shopping me right now who have this dynamic day planned. The only problem I can see is that they haven’t planned any time for really good photographs. They see it in my portfolio and it excites them but they don’t have the time to do anything like it. Wouldn’t you want to have a little input from your wedding professional? Keep us in the loop as much as you can. Just saying.
If you are shopping for for a real wedding photographer, come talk to me… a good fit is worth a lot.
Erin and Rob were almost on their toes in anticipation… the first sight of each other was on one of the balconies at the Jupiter Hotel… up out of the friendly crowd. They had a chance to really connect before the aisle walk and before all of those other people needed any part of them.
True love is a rare find… it’s nice to see it go by.
