Hello beautiful couples,

As you embark on the magical journey of planning your wedding, the photographs stand out as the lasting memory holders of your big day. I'm honored that you're considering me to be a part of this intimate journey. While you're making your decision, I wanted to share some timeless advice to ensure that, no matter who your photographer is, you end up with photos that do justice to your love story.

1. Prioritize Golden Hours:

The hour just after sunrise and just before sunset is often referred to as the "golden hour" in photography. The light during these times is soft, golden, and simply dreamy, making it perfect for romantic wedding shots. If possible, schedule some of your photos during this time. The ethereal glow will add an extra layer of magic to your images.

2. Trust Your Photographer:

It's essential to remember that you've hired a professional who has experience capturing hundreds of special moments. While it's great to have specific shots in mind, trust your photographer's instincts and guidance on the day. Often, spontaneous shots end up being the most cherished!

3. Think About the Details:

Details can make all the difference in wedding photos. Whether it's a special locket on your bouquet, the intricate lace on your gown, or personalized cufflinks, make sure to highlight these elements. They not only add a unique touch to your photos but also capture the essence of your personal style and story.

4. Plan a First Look (if you're up for it!):

A "first look" is when couples see each other before the ceremony, in a private moment. This trend has grown in popularity because it allows for some genuinely intimate and emotional photographs. It's also a beautiful way to calm any pre-ceremony jitters together!

5. Stay Present and Enjoy:

Your wedding day will fly by faster than you can imagine. While it's crucial to get all the desired shots, remember to be present in each moment. Genuine emotions shine through in photographs. So, laugh heartily, cry if you feel like it, and dance like nobody's watching. These candid moments often become the most treasured.

Choosing a wedding photographer is about more than just the photographs; it's about trust, connection, and understanding. I hope these tips help you as you navigate this beautiful phase. Should you decide to allow me the honor of capturing your day, I promise to bring all my expertise, passion, and commitment to ensuring your memories are perfectly preserved.

Warm wishes,
