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.
Every photographer in Portland has shot this great space at the Ace Hotel… it was made for my kind. What I am hoping to bring to the front in this image is that my couples are not required to be on point for the entire portrait session on the wedding day. I want every couple to have a few minutes to themselves without my interference… they need some time away from the crowd to marvel at their new beginnings… face time without the rest of us in the way.
