Pre Bride & Groom
Some of their packages offer a Pre Bride & Groom session. They start off their day with the Pre Groom session. As men don’t usually have the hype of hair and make-up, it is easier for them to dress up in their finest, have photo’s taken and then undress again until it’s time to get to the venue.
The session includes photographs of the Groom as well has the Groom’s Men. In the Pre-Bride Session they capture all the finer details so often missed; the dress, garter, shoes, flowers, makeup and jewelry etc.
When the bride is ready and dressed they photograph her and her entourage, this
enables them to create a story book effect.
Often these sessions provide a good giggle and fond memories about your special day and also offer the concerned parties a glimpse of ‘behind the scenes’ activities.
Ceromony & Details
Photographs are taken from the front of the church as well as from the back. This lets them capture many different angles during the ceremony.
They have an eye for detail and will surprise you with how many of the small things you may have missed, whether it be a flower, corsage or a hole in your sock!
Bride & Groom
You, the bridal couple, are the most important focal aspect. They prefer to perform this photo session away from guests to ensure that there are no distractions.
A romantic setting is their main topic as your wedding day is the most romantic day you will both experience. It also provides a good opportunity to encourage glossy magazine quality shots.
Reception & Family
Family photographs are taken directly after the service. Depending on the lighting conditions, they can set up a make shift studio for those specific photographs of friends, relatives etc.
Due to the hype of the actual day, it is easy to forget about specific photographs therefore a list of names is requested to ensure you have all the photo’s and have not left someone out.
Their photographic style is casual and fun and there are no set poses with group photographs. They encourage the group to chat, smile, tell jokes etc. This ensures that everyone is relaxed, which will show in your photographs.
The memories of your wedding will last a lifetime, yet long after the flowers have wilted, the invitations have curled, and glasses have been emptied, Your photographs will endure.
Hiring a professional photographer to provide lasting memories of your most special day is the greatest investment you can make to ensure your excitement, planning, and good company are recorded with loving care.
