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.  

The first one, I saw the golden sun setting and grabbed my bride and groom for a quick few photos.  A guest captured some photos on their cell phone at the same time, while the image they took is still beautiful, it failed to capture that golden sun!

That sun, though! This seriously was one of my favorite images from their wedding day!

This second one, I posed my couple and then proceeded to shoot through a lilac bush.  I know I probably looked crazy to the guest who took this image, but I had a vision! It's the little things!
