CHECK OUT OUR TOP 10 TIPS FOR YOUR WEDDING DAY
1. ENGAGEMENT SHOOT.
Photographing destination weddings means our clients live all over the world. Most often we do not have an opportunity to meet in person during the booking process. An engagement session is the perfect chance for us to get to know one another, for you to feel comfortable in front of the camera, and for you to experience being photographed together. We find that an engagement session helps our clients feel more at ease on the big day. Furthermore, engagement sessions are a lot of fun and an excellent opportunity to create amazing and adventurous images without the restrictions that a wedding day can bring.
2. GOLDEN HOUR.
We like to discuss photo timelines early in the planning process to maximize our opportunities for creating stunning images. Because we shoot with film, we prefer to photograph all the important details of the day (details, decor, and all portraits) in natural light. Together with your wedding planner, we build your timeline around the best natural light to ensure your day looks wonderful in the photos you’ll keep for a lifetime. Know the sunset time for your wedding day and ideally visit the location the year prior to see the light throughout the day. This will aid in selecting the optimal ceremony, cocktail, and reception times.
Keeping to a wedding timeline is a key factor for maintaining a relaxing and photographically productive day. Things like delayed hair and makeup can drastically change the day’s schedule and impact your time for portraits prior to the ceremony. (We highly recommend a hair and makeup trial prior to the wedding.) Adding buffer time (up to an hour) around the important elements of your wedding preparation allows for delays. The best case scenario is that you finish on time and have a moment for a glass of champagne before the ceremony. Tip: When alerting the family and bridal party of their times to be ready for portraits, give a time 15 minutes prior to the start of portraits to ensure timeliness.
]The first few hours of wedding photography take place as you get ready. Whether you choose a bridal suite, hotel room, or other location to prepare for the wedding, consider the backdrop for these images. This location is where we photograph the majority of your details and initial portraits. As such, we recommend selecting a spacious, open location with ample natural light and similar decor or feel to your wedding so the images flow with the rest of the day.
Please prepare all of your wedding details in advance for photographing while you’re getting ready. These details include the full paper/invitation suite in perfect condition with your preferred calligraphy/addressing/stamps, welcome bag, favor, all paper products, dress, shoes, all wedding rings, and any other details from your day that you would like photographed. We love to style still life shots, especially with meaningful elements that you provide. Consider family heirlooms, jewelry, ribbon, fabric and other items that can enhance your images. Please have your wedding and bridal details in the bridal suite where you’re getting ready so we can capture them when we arrive.
We highly recommend taking the bulk of your portraits prior to the ceremony. Not only will this allow us more time to create beautiful portraits of you and those who matter to you most, but it will allow you to enjoy more of the post-ceremony festivities. Couples often become impatient and frustrated when they are forced to spend their entire cocktail hour taking portraits, as they would rather enjoy the party with friends and family. We get it! This is why we advise leaving only the absolutely necessary group portraits for immediately after the ceremony.
7. NO PHONES
Cell phones and iPads create a significant obstacle for us at your ceremony. We have found that at least one of your guests will try to capture your nuptials with a phone, tablet, or their own camera. These devices end up in your wedding photos and create unsightly distractions while blocking the faces and emotions of you and your guests. The best photojournalistic images of your wedding come about when your guests put away their devices and watch the ceremony with their eyes and hearts

9. TRUST US
To ensure we are the perfect fit for one another, it’s very important for us to get to know as much as possible about you and your wedding day prior to booking. We love to learn about both of you, your personality, your family, and your background so we get a solid sense of your love story and who you are. After the experience of your engagement session, you will know what to expect on your wedding day. It’s now time to relax and enjoy – be yourselves and leave the rest to us.
