Throughout the years in our Wedding Photography, we get asked lots of questions by soon to be Brides and Grooms alike. Most of the time, they are the same...
In our Wedding gallery we are going to do things a little different and try to answer some of the questions you might have with some examples and displaying some of our work.
Let’s first start with one of the most asked questions...
”Will you get pictures of us getting ready?”
The short answer is “YES” we always try to help guide you with your Wedding timeline and move things around to get the most out of your time booked with us and photograph what means most to you. We typically start the Wedding session taking pictures of His & Her finishing touches. The last clip in the Bride’s hair, the Groom tying his tie, lacing his shoes and you putting on that perfect shade of lipstick. The Bride’s sometimes ask us to get photos of all the Bridesmaids gathered around her in matching robes or giving a toast to what’s to come.
GETTING READY PHOTOS
Another common question we get asked is..
“Will you get pictures of my dress?”
Not only will we get pictures of your dress, we will find the best photo op of a background to display what you have invested so much time and money for that perfect dress! Not only will we get pictures of your dress by itself, we will get as many pictures as we can with you in it. We typically let our brides know during the free consultation that they can book a Bridal Portrait session for pictures in an environment that they don’t feel pressed for time. The last thing we want as Photographers is for you to be stressed that you may not get enough portraits in the gown you searched so long for.
WEDDING DRESS PHOTOS
After the Bride Is in her dress getting her finishing touches we like to sneak the Groom and groomsmen outside if the weather will allow and do some portraits. Which brings us to another frequently asked question..
”Will you get pictures of the Groom and the Groomsmen?”
Below are some images of the Groom and Groomsmen that we aim to capture, preceding the ceremony, before the two of you are joined for the rest of the evening.
GROOM & GROOMSMEN PHOTOS
Now we move on to the next question which is..
”Are you going to take pictures of our table settings and details?”
While waiting on the ceremony to start, and often sometimes when we first arrive at the venue, we capture your decor and all the thoughtful details you put into making this day your own. We aim to do this before people are seating themselves. From your guestbook, table settings & all the little things in between- we photograph it all.
We once had a bride ask...
"Will you stick around for the cake cutting?"
The answer is Absolutely! Cake is the reason we got into this business! Not really, but it is up there. Once it has been fully set up in its designated spot, we will get close up shots of the details put into it as well as stand back photos. We will also capture the journey as you cut it and feed...or smash it... in each others face.
Now we get to the part of the Wedding where you say “I DO”
"Will you photograph the ceremony?"
Yes! This is where two photographers comes in to play! Not only do we photograph every member of the wedding party walking down the isle, we also capture the expression from the groom. We love the moment when the officiant says "Please rise." All aspects of your ceremony will be photographed. The unity candle, vows, prayers and the Kiss!
It's time to cut loose!
"Are you going to photograph all aspects of the reception?"
The reception is full of so many memorable moments. The Grand Entrance, First Dances, Cake cutting and the Bouquet and Garter toss. We know these moments go by fast. We will be communicating with your MC to make sure that we have our cameras ready for every event you have planned for the evening.
We have reached the end.
"We are planning a grand exit. Do you photograph those?"
Extravagant grand exits are trending right now. We have photographed couples exiting to bubbles, sparklers, horse drawn carriage and confetti. Even if you are planning on doing this late at night after we have left- we can still stage a faux exit to capture the moment!
