It is your “special day”, but that doesn’t mean that you are the most important person on your wedding day. Capturing candid photos of your parents, your brother, your first grade bff and especially your grandparents who have been married for 63 years are all equally important to me – the person you have tasked to capture those fleeting moments from your wedding.
Weddings are unique because they bring all of these people together that are super important to you. Some you see everyday, some you only see at weddings. An amazing collection of candid photos that captures everyone’s personality will be priceless to you.
There are things that will happen on your special day that you won’t even know about, unless I am there to capture it. You don’t want me following you around like a puppy all day and I don’t want that either. I’d rather get out there and meet the people that you deemed so important that you’re willing to buy them a $65 dinner.
Leading up to your wedding it will be very exciting to imagine all of these different people from different parts of your life mingling and meeting and laughing and hanging out and celebrating you. You can just picture them being themselves because that’s how you know them.
But they won’t be themselves at first. Everybody feels stuffy in formal dress. It might take a few cocktails for them to loosen up and become the real version of themselves. For me to be able to capture the personalities of all of your favorite people is what I enjoy most about photographing a wedding. When I edit those photos it puts a smile on my face as a stranger to them and then it puts a bigger smile in my face imagining how you’re going to react to those photos.
I capture your real wedding guests buy just being myself and building a rapport with them. I’ll often crack a joke at my expense or they’re expense or just make a silly face. I have lots of experience working with toddlers and adults are really no different.
As you are scouring the internet for the perfect wedding photographer, you’re going to see all kinds of photos of a bride and groom posing in a variety of ways. I can nail a light and airey photo of you in the woods or I can turn on some colored lights and make you look like you’re in a magazine. But what I enjoy the most and what you’re going to cherish the most are these photos of the people you love.
