What you see VS what I see
Weddings are such an awesome time to come together with friends and family to celebrate the most important day of your lives! I welcome friends and family to take pictures throughout the day, it brings an angle to the wedding day that I absolutely adore, I want you to relive your wedding day through their eyes. I love playing "where's the photographer" in the weeks after a wedding when your friends and family are posting their images and tagging you in them. It's always fun (or scary) to catch a glimpse of myself in action!
Sometimes I see photos of a pose I set up and it melts my heart. Typically, during formals, I'm a little secretive so its just you, your new spouse and myself for your formals. Every so often a photo is captured during the formals from a guests' camera or cell phone. Sometimes, photographers look like they're shooting from odd angles and it looks like there's no way an image could possibly look nice. I promise, we're not crazy!
We see light in a different way, we bend and manipulate light around you. We focus on the love in your eyes and the pure joy throughout the day.
Choosing a photographer for your wedding day can either be a stressful decision or an easy decision. There are so many of us out there and each one has a different style and personality. It's important to choose someone you click with and love their work. You're trusting someone to capture a day that doesn't come with a do-over. I promise we have a vision! These two images are a perfect example.
They're also a perfect example of the quality a photographer can provide you over opting to not hire a professional photographer.
let me tell you a little secret, for my own wedding, I didn't hire a photographer. I have some images from my photographer friend using my gear to shoot my wedding. However, most of my ceremony is from cell phones. The quality does not compare. I cannot take my wedding day back, we talk about doing a vow renewal after 10-15 years, but it's not the same.
Always with love,
