Good Wedding Photos Happen When You Focus on Your Marriage
Good wedding photos take planning, but not the kind of planning you think. Weddings are like an iceberg. When you focus on the physical “stuff” involved in your wedding, all the countless little things you think you need to buy, you might loose sight of the big picture. You are not getting married just to have a wedding. Your marriage is the foundation of your wedding.
What matters to me as your photographer is not the material things your wedding includes, but rather who you are together in your marriage.
I care about truthfully and skillfully documenting the day your marriage begins. Does this mean I shoot details like your shoes and clothing? Yes. Because I really believe those details speak about who you are as a couple. They are your personal artistic expression. However, your wedding is so much deeper than pictures of shoes and center pieces.
I want to make sure we create wedding photos that show your emotions, and show you surrounded by your guests. I say WE because wedding photography is teamwork. It takes the couple and the photographer to make good wedding photos. I will be excited and celebrate your wedding day, because you are celebrating. You * the couple that hires me * are what matters most in your photography.
Here’s the thing about a wedding with purpose: It produces beautiful photographs, no matter where it happens or what details are included. Because there is purpose behind the pictures.
Have a small wedding, or a big wedding. Be minimal, be off-beat, be funky, be geeky, be classic, be who you are together as a couple. Represent your marriage at your wedding. Then as you plan your wedding, you can find professionals who will take the time to understand you personally. This is the biggest step to getting good wedding photos.
