philosophy

 

A relaxed and natural approach to wedding photography

People often as us if we like photographing weddings. Yes. We love it because we get a front row seat to one of the most special days of your life. We get an unhindered, National Geographic type of access to tell your story. A story with characters, details, settings, and moments. Sure, the timelines often resemble each other, but you never really know what’s going to happen. There are so many moments you can’t plan for. That’s the excitement of it and we aim to capture it all.

A wedding is about love, in all forms. Laughter, joy, tears. The simple, quiet moment before you walk down the aisle and the overwhelming applause when you both are introduced into the reception. These are the times that you will want to remember.

So let’s put aside some of the unnatural poses and have some fun. Enjoy yourself. Be together, take in as much as you can, and we’ll be there to help you remember the rest.

You won’t see 3 cameras strapped to each of us, rushing to set up umbrellas and telling people what to do. We’ll be around, observing everything, laughing and crying with you, all while calmly integrating ourselves into your group of friends.

 

the setting

The weather, the venue, the details, it’s all a part of the story of the day. We love snapping the candid moments as well as shots that give you a sense of feeling, like the puffy white clouds, the drops of rain on the leaves, or a quiet moment alone.

GETTING READY

While you’re getting ready, we like to take a slightly hands off approach. We want you to feel relaxed an at ease, not like you have to pose for a photo shoot. We direct when necessary, to bring you to a spot with better lighting, but mostly we’re there with you, as one of your friends, anticipating the ceremony.

CEREMONY

During the ceremony, we float around, quietly getting all the angles and emotions. We focus on the two of you, but also like to capture your guests and their reactions.

WEDDING PARTY

Whether we do wedding party pictures before or after the ceremony, it’s always fun. Your closest friends together, supporting and loving you, it’s just the best. We do formal pictures as well as fun ones and are always open to ideas if you have them.

COUPLE PORTRAITS

When we go to take your portraits, don’t think of it as something to check off the list before the reception. It’s a time for you two to get away for a minute and just be together. You can kiss, laugh, run, or just hold each other. If you’re a little shy in front of the camera, don’t worry, we direct more during this time, giving you ideas of what to do, but also allowing you to be yourself and enjoy this time together.

Cocktail hour

Cocktail hour is a nice chance for your guests to relax while you’re getting your pictures taken. Once we’re finished, we’ll head over to cocktail hour and get some fun and laid back pictures of your guests hanging out.
