Everyone knows you need to tell your wedding photographer when to arrive for the ceremony, but did you know there are a number of smaller details that may affect your photos? In today’s blog, filled with photos from Stephanie and Shane’s rehearsal dinner at the Smith, I give you a list of the 11 details your wedding photographer needs to know — but that you might have overlooked.
I am not a big fan of posed engagement photos because posing stifles the natural energy level of the couple. So what do you do about engagement shoots that are inherently posed photo sessions? Turn your engagement session into a story told through the camera, of course! In today’s blog I will give you a list of creative engagement photo shoot ideas and introduce you to Ariel and Jeremiah, who turned their engagement session into a documentary about how they love to cook.
Don’t have time to schedule an engagement shoot? No problem! Do what Sasha and Jonathan did and schedule a mini portrait session right before your Brooklyn rehearsal dinner. Find out all the details in today’s blog.
If you are an animal fan, then the zoo is your fantasy wedding venue. But before you heed the call of the he wild, come along with me to explore Emily and Ben’s beautiful Bronx Zoo wedding and learn some valuable tips for your own big day!
As you have seen in my last two posts (here and here), Vanessa and Nate hosted a beautiful wedding at Maritime Parc. Like me, Vanessa is a fellow crafter, and she put a lot of love into several projects that capitalized on her creativity and made her big day truly unique. The hard work was worth it, but more so for some projects than others. In the interest of educating every couple out there about to undertake a wedding DIY project (or 10), I thought it would be best if you heard straight from Vanessa about the projects she loved and would create again, and the projects that are better left to Pinterest fantasyland. Without further ado, here are some do’s and don’ts for wedding DIY projects from recent bride, Vanessa.
Wanna know a secret? The spontaneous photos you see in my portfolio aren’t always quite so spontaneous. The trick for setting yourself up for wedding photojournalism success is to make sure that you take care of the details beforehand. Enjoy a peek behind the curtain and find out how I capture every moment as well as all the details of Vanessa and Nate’s Maritime Parc wedding!
Anyone care to join me? I am going to (temporarily) become a North Carolina photographer when I go to visit family, June 26 to July 7. I cannot wait to be with my mother and cousins, not to mention the therapeutic change of scenery. And of course, I am looking forward to bringing back lots of photos hikes along the Blue Ridge Mountains. While technically this trip is vacation, I am always looking to keep busy. If you know of anyone in the Asheville/Highlands area who is interested in an engagement or family portrait session, or just another artist looking to collaborate, have them give me a ring! My idea of a vacation involves packing every lens I own plus a few changes of clothes. Always be photographing, I say.
Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
