A dear friend of mine recently asked me to photograph his wedding but he asked for “just a few funky portraits after the ceremony” ie just a creative couple session. I was a bit horrified, as to me, wedding photography isn’t just about pretty arty portraits, it is about all the moments in between and I really felt like they would be missing out. I thought about this for ages and then decided to ask my past clients to send me a little blurb about their favourite images. The results were surprising at times but mostly they were really moving. This exercise really made me realise the value of what I do for my clients and I shed many a tear reading people’s stories.
I recently had a meeting with one of my wedding couples and it struck me that I should do a blog post on our discussion so that my other couples, photographers and future clients could also benefit.
Besides choosing a great wedding photographer there are things that you can do yourself to get great wedding pics, or at least help your photographer along the way.
Drew is more than just a hair stylist – he is an ARTIST and an EXPERIENCE! We have worked together on loads of different shoots and weddings and I am lucky enough to call him a good friend too! Here are some really handy tips for brides who want great wedding hair!
I first met Carolyn whilst shooting weddings at Netherwood. She reminds me of a ray of sunshine – Always smiling, always warm! Carolyn has since gone on her own and this is most certainly a blessing for brides who want to work with a wedding co-ordinator who will be as excited about your wedding as you are! Thanks to Carolyn for taking the time to give us some of her expert advice.
I just love working with Lindsay. She seems to swish a few brushes about and then BAM … Absolute Beauty. Not only is she a wonderful presence to have around on a wedding day, she is fast and flawless with a capital F. Thanks so much for taking the time to give my readers some advice on bridal make up.
