Any customs or traditions you want me to capture?
Anything you would like me NOT to capture? Any SPECIAL candids or posed portraits that you’d like me to capture?
Often there are special photography guidelines from the church/wedding venue. (For example, many catholic churches do not allow the use of a flash for photos of certain rituals.) This is an extremely important question. PLEASE do not assume the answer to this question. Most couples assume there are no restrictions when there actually are. The best person to ask is the actual person performing the ceremony. It is important to know them ahead of time so we can discuss how they might affect your pictures. Are there restrictions? If so, what are they?
Your Style
Ideally, what percentage of each type of photography would you like? (Should total 100%)
This avoids posed or prompted shots and captures the spontaneity of your wedding day. Moments are not created- they are captured. Photojournalism shows you the joy, emotion, & spontaneity of the day. Photographs are simple & immediate. An instant of life captured on film.
Individuals or groups of people are set up by the photographer in formal poses. The complete opposite of candid photography. This is typically the most traditional style of wedding photography and is very popular with older family members. The photos are quite formal but are very consistent. This would include posed portraits of the bride & groom, family, wedding attendants and prompted photos of the traditional “happenings” at your wedding.
These are semi-posed, natural looking, casual portraits. Individuals or groups of people are brought together without the look of a formal set-up. This style gives a more relaxed, contemporary & fun look.
A component of photojournalistic style. Captures small details that help you to truly remember the day- the beads of a dress, the swirls of frosting on the cake, the pearls on your ears, the blossoms of your flowers, artistic close ups of the rings, etc.
Please share with us anything we may not have covered that you believe is important for us to know about your wedding day.
