Should we see each other before the ceremony?TOP
A “first look” as it is commonly called is a very personal choice between a bride and groom. Your family and friends will be happy to offer input on this decision but ultimately it will be up to you. If the timing with daylight on your wedding day is not in question then I will not encourage you to choose, one way or the other. If you want beautiful outdoor images and your service ends after dark, this of course will be the only way to accomplish outdoor images on the wedding day. There is no question, there are many reasons to see each other before your service. Brides and groom struggle with this decision but to date every single couple I have photographed this way have agreed it was the best choice. Not only do you have more time for great photographs , you can get over some nervousness and best of all go straight to your party after your ceremony! Really it’s a win win for all!
What if it rains on my wedding day?TOP
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck! Since we are in Florida the good news is if you aren’t happy with the weather, wait ten minutes and it will change. All kidding aside rain can change things on the wedding day. Still the most important thing is you are marrying the person you love…rain or shine! I have photographed many weddings on rainy days and gotten beautiful images. Rain produces amazing light. In the end you have to be happy and enjoy your day. There is always the option to do a day after session . This is a session with the bride and groom on a day other than the wedding. These sessions are a lot of fun… and can be very romantic. Do t worry, be happy ou will have great images regardless of weather!
Do I get a CD with all of my images?
Most couples ask for a CD because they have read somewhere that they should. Most will never use them and do not know what to do with them once they get them. Our studio is a full service studio that specializes in producing wedding books you will treasure for a lifetime. Most often CDs are many hundreds of unfinished images. At least 50% of my work…and the reason you hire a full service photographer, is in the art of finishing the image. The artwork is what’s takes your image from good to AMAZING! I personally want only finished work to leave the studio. It represents our brand and we want you to proudly share it with family and friends, finished and as beautiful as it should be. Once you have chosen images for your wedding book if a CD of images is still important to you they are available on a sliding scale based on your book. In many cases they may be include at no further charge. One of the biggest mistakes you can make is assuming you can produce from a CD what we have 20 years of experience producing. Don’t make the mistake of not having something beautiful in your home you can enjoy everyday that reminds you of how happy you were on your wedding day….in the end this is what wedding photography is all about!
