My approach to weddings, beyond photography

August 20, 2018

What can you expect from me when your hire me as your wedding photographer? Well, you get more than just a photographer that can take nice pictures in good light. I have shot over 50 weddings just this year & I have shot in every sort of venue you can think of. 

If you’re hiring a wedding photographer for the first time, how do you know what to look for? Can your photographer shoot great pictures in every lighting situation, or are only skilled with natural light? I can work with every lighting situation thrown at me- a dark church, harsh sunlight at an outdoor ceremony, or a dimly lit reception & everything in between. I have & am skilled with on & off camera flash, continuous lights, & know how to make the best of harsh sunlight.

What about knowing & keeping track of a tight timeline? Things can get stressful on your wedding day & you need someone who knows how to manage time & how to manage people to keep them on time. I was recently at a wedding with a tight timeline that had no buffer time or free time later for photos. But we were able to keep the wedding day running on time & actually ahead of time!

I don’t love poses because they don’t make you really feel anything. But I love prompts! By giving various prompts I can make you laugh, smile, giggle, move, & create pictures that are full of happiness & full of life. You’ll look back at these kinds of photos & remember the joy & feeling you felt & the fun you had. You’ll be able to be more relaxed & won’t have to worry about being awkward.

While this may seem somewhat stressful to think about, you won’t even have to worry about these things! I’ve got you! I can maintain my cool in some difficult situations & still keep my creative drive going. Even through all of this, I’ll be sure to make it a fun & enjoyable time!
