My biggest piece of advice after 175,000 wedding images…
On your Wedding day Be present, Be connected, and remember why the both of you are here in the first place. Let everything else go….
This is the main thing that we find separates the brides with hundreds of wonderful images, and ones where we struggle to find that glowing look you want but don’t.
I used to chalk it up to stress of the day, but now I know its misplaced stress
Family members not doing what they are “supposed” to do and it just grates at you. Image after image are still being taken documenting your day. The flowers came and the colors are just not right. Frame after frame, click , click we keep shooting, Hoping for a smile, hoping for that look that all new Brides should have - But they don’t come. I will remind you - we don’t get a second chance. Table cloths are too short, seat covers don’t fit, detail after detail consumes you. Instead of the glowing look of a Brides anticipation in seeing her groom at the altar… it’s a look of frustration behind forced smiles because “everything isn’t“perfect”. Click , click we keep documenting your day. “Just et it go” I say…. But again I see it in your forced smiles. I know the images that are not what they should be. I stop you to make sure your “Ok” , remind you that these images are the only thing you will have to remember this day. Take a breath, re focus, remember why are you here? You seem to have forgotten with all the chaos of the day. Stop, reset yourself. I want to capture the your moments, the feelings, the joy, but its just not happening. .. You can choose to change it – or not.
Be present, Be connected, and remember why the both of you are here in the first place. Let everything else go…. Now Breath .. Close your eyes… Open … Now we can produce the stunning images of your wedding day , after all isn’t that why you hired me in the first place. I will help you get back on track, I promise….
