Wedding Photography Studio
Every wedding is a personal reflection of the personalities of not only the bride and groom, but also their families. Each wedding has different and unique needs. The location, time of day, number of attendants, religious affiliation, number of family members, number of guests, personalities, and many other factors affect your wedding needs. Complete photo albums are the best way to capture and preserve all these aspects along with the feelings and mood of this special event.
Experience and knowledge of both weddings and photography are a must to ensure a wedding album you will be proud to show and share with family and friends. I have learned each wedding is unique and the photography should capture this. A mix of portraits, starting with the engagement and including the wedding day, along with both black and white and color candid photography are used to give a complete coverage package. I don’t stop with the photography; I will design and produce your finished wedding album. Creating a complete wedding album takes pre-planning before the wedding, cropping, color harmony, correct placement, lots of time and experience. I would never expect you to have to do this yourself. Did you buy the material and make your own wedding dress? I take lots of pride in the fact that I deliver the complete package to you.
Due to the uniqueness of each wedding, it is necessary to custom design your photographic coverage. Communication is a very important factor in ensuring your proper needs. It is important to us that your wedding day remains organized, personalized and enjoyable for you and your guests. I will sit down with you and discuss the entire wedding plan, families, budget, likes, dislikes, and personal preferences, in order to help you plan your personal wedding coverage. This is your wedding; I need your input to ensure it remains your wedding. I will be there to capture and preserve the memories through photography.
Once you’ve set the date and booked the church, the photographer should be the next thing on your list. Photographers can only photograph one, maybe two, weddings on any given weekend. The prime ones will be booked over a year in advanced on popular dates. In order to get your choice, book early. You will be spending a lot of time with your photographer on this special day. Pick one with a good personality that you will enjoy being with. A true professional will be there when they need to be, but be invisible most of the time. I will not run your wedding, just capture the mood and excitement of the day. Given my past experience, I can offer suggestions for keeping things running smoothly. Weddings are individual events and should be treated as such. Photography is still my number one priority. Professional equipment, proper lighting control, and getting the job done in the quickest most efficient way possible, is the sign of a true professional. Yes, anyone can photograph your wedding. But you want the best, you deserve only the best, so make sure you get the best. Don’t trust your once in a lifetime event to a once in a while photographer.
Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to speaking with you!
