So thanks to everyone who voted and showed these couples some love. And now the moment you all have been waiting for… Continue reading
I’m going to share with you five of my favorite wedding dresses and why. These are all dresses that I photographed. If I went onto google and just looked for dresses I liked we’d be here all day! It was hard enough picking some out from all my beautiful brides! I hope the ones I chose inspire you while you are out looking for your own.
I am a documentary style photographer. I love to watch moments happen around me and capture them in their natural state. However, being a wedding photographer also means giving gentle direction and helping clients to feel and look their best. Most of us feel a little nervous about what to do in front of a camera, me included! That’s why I am so often BEHIND the camera. Put me in front and my hands creep up and weird faces start to emerge. Today I’m going to touch on some basics of posing and how to feel comfortable in front of the camera on your wedding day.
Like all good relationships, communication is key. This rule applies with your Photographer whether it is a wedding or portrait session. The more I communicate with a client, the more at ease we both are and the more we both have a clear vision of the session. Plus, it’s really fun! I mean what’s the point of having all these pinterest boards if you can’t share them with someone?
You’ve found a photographer and signed up for an engagement session! Hooray! Now what? Where to go? And most importantly…what do you wear? Gone are the days of overly matchy outfits and in are subtle color palettes. Here are a few tips on what to wear to get you inspired.
Full Disclosure: If you haven’t noticed, I AM a Professional Wedding Photographer. So this post is naturally a little biased. However, Professional Wedding Photographers are more than just photographers for a Bride to Be. We consult, we calm, we lend a hand, and we are involved in all the details. That said, I see so many Brides go with a family member or friend for their wedding photography and it breaks my heart. Not just because their pictures might not be great but because there is so much more to a true professional than just the pictures.
I have absolutely been DYING to share this wedding! Seriously, I’ve been on the edge of my seat waiting for everything to get wrapped up so I could share it. I am in love with the location, details, emotion, all of it.
Erika and Travis’ wedding was absolutely stunning. It was one of those weddings that you open up your favorite Wedding Magazine and fall in love with. All the details were perfect from the champagne and gold colored bridesmaids gowns, to pops of pink and fushia in the bouquets. However, as anyone knows who has helped plan a wedding, it looked amazing and effortless due to lots of planning, and hard work from friends and family. But what better way to celebrate a union of two people than to have everyone involved? That’s really the perfect word to sum up this wedding, FAMILY. Erika and Travis are both huge family people whether its through blood or close friends. Their love and compassion radiated over the whole ceremony. I really can’t put it into words. So without further ado…Travis & Erika’s big day. Congrats guys!
