Can I just say I’m very excited about this thread? I love wedding photo porn!

For me, I wanted photographs that really capture the emotions of the day–the happiness, the sadness, the annoyances, the funny moments. I also love photographs of the little tender moments between parents or between the bride groom. Also, anything quirky or that really represents the location of the wedding.

It was important to me that our photos be a little edgy. I don’t want our wedding photos to be so bland that you could paste another bride and groom into them. I don’t want “typical”. I wanted them to be art – not just photos of our wedding, therefore we chose a photographer who is a true artist, who has a unique vision based on us as people, and who won’t regurgitate the same canned shots he uses at all weddings. The package things that were important to us were: 

An etched metal, flushmount album

2 shooters, full coverage of the day

My Fiance didn’t want a photographer who woud “take over the wedding” by making us and our family take a bunch of posed shots while guests waited to be fed.  I wanted someone whose pictures were bright and had life to them.  After hours upon hours of searching the internet, we were able to find someone.

  • Wedding: March 2011

I am a new bride (March 2011) and a professional wedding photographer. Personally, I love the special moments and detail shots that were captured on my wedding day. So much time goes into planning the day and as the bride, you don’t always get to take it all in. I enjoyed seeing the fruits of my labor through the lens of my photographer.
When it comes to photography, I feel true emotion is shown when individuals are comfortable with the photographer or feel like no one is looking. A good photographer should know how to take candids, detail shots and posed shots.
