Expectations

Expectations don’t end just because the wedding is over. The details and all of that planning are just the beginning and lots of couple heave a great sigh of relief when the day is done. For just about all of your vendors, the work is done before the wedding. The huge exception is your photographer and your video team, if you have one. As a photographer, I try to make sure my clients understand, going in, that the process after the big day is a relatively time intensive thing. If you add that to the line-up of weddings according to seasonal surges, you can expect to wait a bit for your wedding pictures to be properly finished.

So here we are on the edge of the busiest season… Summer is winding down and Fall weddings are beginning. Still busy but not quite as stacked up. I just sat down to write a letter to each of my September couples… they have had a little time to relax and reflect and I want them to know when to expect the images that we made. To that end, I have included two or three teasers for each… something they can print and put in a frame or throw onto Facebook for now. I know they have tons of pictures from their friends but I know they are waiting for my work. ;0)

The question for you is, have your vendors made it clear how the process works for each part of your plans? If not, then take a few minutes to ask them. True professionals can give you a solid set of expectations and that is worth a lot.

Brides Rule!

Brides Rule the Day at the Jupiter Hotel! It should have been the headline on the Sunday morning paper this weekend!
My two cool brides, Melissa & Mia, brought such a confident spark to their wedding day that the crowd was more involved than many I have seen. It was really great to see the level of happy going on. I can’t wait to work through all of their images… it’s going to make me smile all over again.

In all of this, I finally had a chance to work with the delightful Melissa Coe, an officiant held in high regard here in Portland. I was not disappointed and as we chatted a little during the day, I was pleased to find a kindred spirit in her. Not all wedding vendors are created equal so when I find the ones that fit, I am elated. ;0)

Getting married? I’d love to talk to you!
