*What is your photography style?

Photojournalism

A reality-based approach to document real moments. Rather than posing for pictures, I will follow you and your guests throughout the day, capturing events as they naturally unfold. When needed, I will try to blend seamlessly into the background and become “invisible” to the experience. This method is applied best during the wedding ceremony and most of the reception including first dances and toasts. The best photojournalists are both experienced to anticipate the shot and also work very quickly to capture the fleeting story.

Traditional Portraiture

A classic style of posed photography often used for engagement and formal portraits, with a focus on good posture, natural expressions, and simple backgrounds. I am experienced directing a wide range of subjects from a single person to very large groups of 250+ people. I am able to take charge, keep it fun, and get all of your desired formal pictures within a reasonable amount of time so you and your guests can enjoy the party!

Pretty Details

These are the kinds of images you are seeing in bridal magazines, on wedding blogs, and all over Pinterest. Some details include wedding rings, wedding invitations, all of the yummy food, thoughtful decor, etc. I will also help style your wardrobe from fluffing your gown, straightening pant legs, and making sure bouquets are held in the correct position.

Timeline of Events

Wedding coverage usually starts 2.5 hours before the ceremony as the bride and groom are getting ready and goes until 30 minutes after the last big event at the reception. For most weddings this is a full 8 hour day.

  1. Getting Ready
  2. First Look (optional)
  3. B&G Romantics
  4. Formals
  5. Ceremony
  6. Reception

1) Getting Ready

  • Bride getting ready (final touches of hair and makeup)
  • Bride’s accessories (dress, shoes, jewelry, veil, garter, perfume, purse, vows, etc.)
  • Bride alone
  • Bride w/ Bridesmaids
  • Groom getting ready
  • Groom’s accessories (suit, shoes, tie, socks, cufflinks, watch, vows, etc.)
  • Groom alone
  • Groom w/ Groomsmen
  • Wedding + Engagement Rings (cleaned and with the bride)
  • Bridal Bouquet (suggested delivery to bridal suite)
  • Boutonnieres (designate someone to pin these on the guys)
  • Wedding invitations (two complete sets, 1 stamped and addressed to bride and groom)

2) First Look (optional)

Some couples choose to exchange gifts, say a prayer, or just enjoy a quiet moment together before the day unfolds. A first look will also allow the opportunity for more romantic and formal group pictures before the ceremony, freeing up more time later in the day.

3) B&G Romantics and Formal Portraits

Immediate Family 1-3 minutes per small group, 2-4 minutes for each group up to 8 and 5+ minutes for larger groups of 8+ people. (immediately following first look or ceremony is recommended).

  • B&G with wedding officiant (optional)
  • B&G with parents of the bride
  • B&G with parents of the groom
  • B&G with both sets of parents together
  • B&G with immediate family
  • B&G with bridesmaids and groomsmen
  • B&G with children attendants
  • Extended Family: I suggest keeping family formals to immediate family only and pictures with extended family members as you see them during reception. If you would like to include extended family in the formals, then use the same timing calculations as for immediate family.
  • Romantic portraits of the Bride & Groom together

4) Ceremony

  • Ceremony décor and details (at least 20-30 minutes before ceremony)
  • Processional - Bride walking down the aisle and Groom's reaction
  • Bride and Groom together, vows, ring exchange, kiss
  • Recessional - Couple coming back down the aisle

5) Reception

  • Cocktail hour (décor, food, drinks, candids)
  • Reception space (without people, time allowing)
  • Bride & Groom's Grand Entrance
  • First Dance(s) (Mother/ Son, Father/ Daughter, Bride/ Groom)
  • Toast(s)
  • Bouquet / Garter Toss
  • Cake / Cake Cutting
  • Entertainment
  • Couple’s departure
