It's Wedding Wednesday and we thought we share of few of our thoughts on a wedding day!
Wedding Day Chaos and More
When I first arrive for a wedding day session. I'm a bit nervous I just want to make sure I'm getting all the images I feel is necessary for the day. However my mind is in total overdrive I'm sweating nervous and working to figuire out what do I do first. You have expectaction from the event planner and you have expectation from the bride and then of course you have expectation for yourself. Your on the verge of mental overdrive.. You working to shoot the images of details scattered with the people and then Oh those beautiful magazine images Oh yeah I have to make sure we get some editorial worthy shots with all that in mind Its just a constant think over load. Weddings being so precise with different things happening at different times. The main build up is preparing for the ceremony and the preparation until then. So you come in at the schedule time. You advise the event staff your here and then I look around grab some details and then I'm off to meet the bride.
Preferable she is still getting her makeup done or something of that nature so that I can capture the dress the shoes , jewelry and more. So I'm looking for the most detailed unique editorial way to capture these images. Details and Decor that is what I like.. Until I'm pressed for time.
Then as the bride begins to dress and making sure your not capturing the wrong thing while dressing but some of the most endearing shots that will be treasured for years to come. While your making everyone feel comfortable and your around getting the shots you feel like you need and then its time for you to go and see what are the guys doing.
Let me go capture a few of them. Shoes, lapels cuff links socks and grooms in action. The guys are quick and to the point while in your head your crossing off the shot list that exist there saying to yourself I think I got all the shots I need.
Now is it almost ceremony times... Whew let me check... Oh yes it is.. Guest are filling up the sanctuary and I'm running around trying to get some crowd shots along with details up close and personal and running to make sure I get the wedding party lined up and ready to go.
