Wedding Photography Faves:
My favorite style of wedding photography is a more intimate, photojournalistic style– capturing the once-in-a-lifetime moments of the monumental day along with the personalities of all involved. Candid shots combined with dramatic lighting techniques (effects?), a modern feel, and bold use of color really make a couple’s wedding photos special.
Advice for the engaged:
The biggest piece of advice is to find someone the couple is comfortable with and puts them at ease! Think of them as a long-time, trusted friend. You want to be confident they are getting the shots you’re looking for, without being overly intrusive. Speaking of the shots you’re looking for, it’s never a bad idea to give the photographer a list of what you have in mind.
