Weddings are once-in-a-lifetime events filled with elegant details, timelines, loved ones, and lots of emotions. A wedding planner can take your vision and enhance it beyond what you can imagine, allowing you to enjoy the stress-free wedding day of your dreams.
I work closely with my couples’ wedding planners to ensure I am afforded the opportunity to capture all the beautiful elements of your wedding day. Photographing your wedding is much more efficient and smooth when I work with a talented planner, as I am able to focus solely on creating captivating imagery while the wedding logistics are safely in their hands.
Photographing destination weddings means my clients live all over the world. Most often I 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.
I find that an engagement session helps my 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.
I like to discuss photo timelines early in the planning process to maximize my opportunities for creating stunning images. I prefer to photograph all the important details of the day (details, decor, and all portraits) in natural light where possible. Together with your wedding planner, I'll 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. (I 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 I'll photograph the majority of your details and initial portraits. As such, I 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, favours, all paper products, dress, shoes, all wedding rings, flowers, perfume and any other details from your day that you would like photographed.
I 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 I can capture them when I arrive.
Mobiles and iPads create a significant obstacle for me at your ceremony. I always find that at least one guest 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.
Tip: Consider asking your officiant to make an announcement just before the start of the processional to request that guests put away their cameras and devices and be present during the ceremony.
To ensure we are the perfect fit for one another, it’s very important for me to get to know as much as possible about you and your wedding day prior to booking. I love learning about both of you, your personality, your family, and your background so I can get a solid sense of your love story and who you are. The joy is that 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 me!.
