HELP US PREP WEDDING SEASON

Prepping for 2015

  • Good Things | I Need Some Advice!

Michael and I are enjoying a nice break from weddings right now. We love waking up on Saturdays and not rushing to a wedding! It’s awesome! We feel like NORMAL people! …. However, I know it won’t be long until I’m ready for some gorgeous weddings to come back into my life! Rest ultimately prepares you for work! Looking forward to our 2015 Wedding season, I have a few things that I know that I need to find. I’m hoping that some of you out there (since a lot of wedding photographers check this blog!) will be able to give us some advice!

Should Photographers Interrupt A Wedding Day?

  • Ask Anything

Some people have asked us about our shooting style. This is something that brides will sometimes ask and it’s also something that “The Knot” tells brides to ask their photographers. (You know, that list of 30 questions that you receive over a over again? Note to self, answer them once and then SAVE them!) It’s a great question! What brides want to know is, how do we ACT on a wedding day? Are we involved? Do we just stand back and capture candidly? Will they need to know how to pose on their own? Will we let them be themselves or will EVERY pose be arranged by us?

  • A Glamorous Surprise Proposal

The thing is, after a workshop, we submit our styled shoots and then we start planning the next one! I’m so bad at remembering to share the actual SHOOT with everyone!! This is one styled shoot you do NOT want to miss!! It’s glamorous and beautiful but this was a shoot that a must BIGGER surprise in store for everyone! I knew about this. I had some warning!! After we did some posing and detail shots, it was time!
