Wedding Guide

Here are some tips to help me get the best images on your wedding day! While I really do like to take a documentary style approach and photograph what's going on and capturing the candid and the special moments, there are a few things that would help these moments look even better, or a few things for you to consider when planning stages of your wedding! 

 

BE CLEAN

Getting ready

It would be AWESOME if where you're getting ready was well lit by the natural light outside (think big bright rooms with big windows!). It would also be awesome if there was minimal clutter. Think wrapping from shoe boxes away, ironing boards not in the background, suitcases stored, etc. 

 

Have all your special details out

Think of the details you'd like photographed and have them ready for me so you can just throw yourself into getting ready, not worrying and having the best time! 
This includes: shoes, jewellery, 

 

Have you considered an "Unplugged Ceremony?"

It's the moment you've always dreamed of! You're walking down the aisle, or watching your wife-to-be walk down the aisle, with all your family and friends. You're so excited to see their smiling faces. You're down and they're all watching... their phone screens. Imagine not seeing their reactions to you, or your first kiss, or being announced husband and wife, and just seeing the back of iPhone and iPad screens rather than their present, smiling faces. Imagine your guests not sharing that moment with you. Your guests are not only an important part of your life, your story, your wedding day, but they're also an important part of your wedding photos. Which is what I'm there for! 
An "Unplugged Ceremony" is where you ask your guests to politely refrain from photographing during the ceremony. Many a time I've missed a shot because an Uncle with a smart phone has jumped in front of me, or images of you walking down the aisle are lined with.

FROM JK - hey forget that they are the back drop, they set the mood, their faces are a part of the story. Do you think the bride wants to look through her wedding album and see a million phone screens? Do they want to remember people looking down at their devices and not into her eyes? Do they realize that in their attempt to get the “perfect photo” they have blocked the professional photographer from catching their shot?
We are able to watch the bride walk down the aisle without being blocked by guests or phone screens. We can document the expressions of their families and guests as they see her for the first time! We don’t fear that Uncle Carl will stand up during the first kiss to get “the shot” and make us miss that precious moment. We get to watch the couple waltz down the aisle with smiles, not phone screens. Can you imagine our children someday looking through our albums and seeing a line of iphones along the aisle? People who are more concerned with documenting than enjoying?
