My Relaxed ApproachFrom the moment you step in to your dress to your first dance as husband and wife, see how I go about making beautiful photographs while providing a fun, stress-free photography experience...
The anticipation leading up to the ceremony makes for some great photo ops, however, there’s no need to worry about a camera being in your face all morning long. I typically spend about an hour photographing details and you getting ready.
I love the relaxed pace of pre-ceremony photos. If you and your fiance choose to see one another prior to the ceremony, nearly all your portraits may be completed prior to your guests arrival, leaving cocktail hour yours to enjoy. (Are you wondering if a First Look is for you? Check out this article detailing the many reasons why I love this new tradition.)
I’ll place you in a beautiful setting then step back and let the two of you enjoy the moment.
I’ll complete photos of you before your guests arrive so that you may get tucked away. Then I’ll capture some candid moments of your guests arriving as well as a few ceremony details.
Once the ceremony begins I go in to stealth mode. I capture all the moments of your ceremony while being as respectful and unobtrusive as possible.
At the end of cocktail hour, as guests are getting seated, I love spending a few minutes photographing the two of you as husband and wife. The evening light is always dreamy and all the nerves have settled. I love this opportunity for my couples to step back and soak it all in.
Once I’ve completed your formal photographs, I aim to go unnoticed. I’ll never stage anything, I’ll never ask you to “pretend” to cut your cake. Your wedding is a real life event, not a movie set. I’m there to tell your story not stage it.
We are just in awe of what you were able to capture – things we really didn’t even know were happening.Laura
I LOVE Colorado. It’s probably safe to assume that you do too. I’m always certain to capture the magnificent setting that Colorado offers. I think the details of the surroundings (the mountains, trees, meadows) are just as important as the centerpieces and bouquets.
Toasts always make for great candids of you and your favorite people.
There’s nothing quite like the relationship between a daughter and her father. Documenting this bond is one of my favorite elements of a wedding day.
After you’ve had your first dance, you’ve cut the cake and toasts have been made, I like to cover about 30 minutes to an hour of dancing. It’s rarely necessary for me to stay until the very end of the night but that’s entirely up to you.
If your ceremony and reception are at the same location, 8 hours of photography coverage is typically the perfect amount of time for me to start with some getting ready photos and end photography coverage about 30 minutes to an hour after your first dance. I’ll of course discuss your timeline with you in detail to be sure you get all the photography coverage you desire.
