Couture Wedding Photography- Capturing the Bridal Details
As a photographer I take into consideration my experience as a Bride. I remember poring over wedding magazines, websites and Pinterest looking for the perfect details to capture the essence of the day. I loved the cascading waterfall of close-ups of rings, bouquets, up-dos and tablescapes. Every photograph seemed to tell a fairytale story, a perfect vision of romance. I appreciated our photographer and her care to make sure she knew what I wanted in my photographs. I also remember my frustration with vendors that simply “didn’t get it”. I take my experiences and apply them to how I work with my Brides, realizing every couple is unique and every wedding is so special. Making sure I understand the vision, passion and meaning behind their important choices.
I inquire about the details, their colors and the things that are important to them. Instead of developing a canned shot list I work with every couple to make sure their personality shines through in their wedding day photographs when creating their must have shot list.
Getting to know the couples I am working with is vitally important. I ask questions such as: How did you meet? What do you do for fun? How would you describe the style of your wedding? Do you have a theme? Also, I ask them if they would like to share with me photographs on their Pinterest and from magazines they like. Time spent and questions asked all help me create a couture, personalized artistic direction for their wedding day. I believe it is in the details, the captured moments where the essence of love can truly be photographed to be cherished for a lifetime.
So today I highlight some those details that were so carefully chosen the ring, shoes and purse.
