Choosing a wedding dress is an individual experience that allows brides to express their fashion personality. Your wedding day is the biggest fashion moment of your life, so choose a gown that reflects your style and taste. The most important thing to keep in mind is to choose a dress that allows you to move freely and is easy to walk in. This is because I love capturing both of you moving, walking in fields, forests or on beaches. Your dress is going to get a little dirty, but that's okay!
My best advice is to be prepared to move around and walk a lot in your wedding dress. For me to photograph both of you in amazing locations, that means we need to get there somehow. Running, walking, holding hands, hugs, lifts, swinging around and even sitting down. I love stunning wedding dresses, but what I get more excited about is when my brides can move in them and still look amazing! Let your dress designer know that you would love a comfortable, lightweight showpiece. You want to be comfortable, relaxed and beautiful on your wedding day.
Let's talk about
Don't stress about rain on your wedding day. The weather can't be changed, but your focus on the love and happiness surrounding you and your partner can be. Embrace the rain, don't worry about getting wet, it will add to the story of your special day. Remember, you can't control the weather, but you can control your attitude towards it. Some of my best images have happened in the rain.
So, let's just go with the flow and embrace the weather! We can't control it, after all, we're only human. The true reason we tie the knot is to show our love to each other and share it with our nearest and dearest, and to have a grand celebration. That's way more significant than a little rain. But don't worry, fun will be had by all, rain or shine!
And here's a silver lining - the light during a rainy day is a photographer's dream come true! The soft, even lighting creates the most beautiful, moody atmosphere. No harsh shadows in sight!
finding the perfect
For some brides, finding the perfect wedding shoe is just as exciting as the perfect wedding dress. For others, comfort is the top priority. My advice is to find a shoe that suits your style and have a backup plan in case of rain. It's important to remember that I may ask you to walk and potentially get dirty for the best photos. Rain on the wedding day is not something every bride wants to think about, but the more prepared you are, the happier you will be if it does happen. Gumboots or a cheaper, comfortable backup option, or even going barefoot can make a big difference. Heel stoppers can also prevent losing your shoes in rough terrain. Ultimately, choosing the perfect shoe is important but don't let it stress you out, have a plan B.

PRE- CEREMONY - I arrive to photograph your setup of your ceremony area and the guests arriving.
On your wedding day, consider the location of where you and your partner will be getting ready in the morning. The closer the locations are, the more time I have to photograph those candid and intimate moments. Please make sure to keep the rooms tidy when I arrive, it will greatly enhance the look of your photos.
Natural lighting is crucial for great photos. Make sure to get ready in a location that is well-lit by window light. Artificial light, like down-lights can cast unflattering shadows on your face and alter the color of your skin. Make-up artists will also appreciate working with natural light.
"Natural light is the key"
A wedding day can be a whirlwind of emotions, and one of the most important things you can do to ensure it goes smoothly is to schedule enough time in the morning so that you're not rushed. Another important consideration is to fill in a family photo list in advance, and make sure that important loved ones stay around for the photos.
Throwing confetti is a timeless tradition that involves all guests, including children, and always brings a smile to everyone's face. I know it may sound crazy, but consider an "unplugged" wedding, where you ask all of your guests to turn off their phones, cameras, and iPads and let the professional, who you've hired for the day, take all the photographs. This will prevent your guests from getting in the way, and it will also allow them to fully enjoy the moment. Lastly, make sure your hair is parted on the correct side for the ceremony so that guests can see your face. It's a small thing to think about, but it will make a big difference in your photographs.
Wedding family photos, also known as "formals" or "family portraits," are an important but often tedious part of your wedding day. To make the process more efficient, it's important to appoint a helper to gather and name people in the group photos. The helper should be nominated before the wedding and will usually be a member of the bridal party or a close friend. I may use drone in the photos, if included in the package, also I recommend to include your pets in the photos if you bring them to your wedding.
I'm here to capture the joy of your special day in a natural and authentic way. Just be yourself and let me do the rest. Allow at least one hour for the photo session. For sunny days, I recommend shooting around sunset for the best light. If possible, I'd love to take some shots during the last bit of daylight, this is a great time for you to relax and take it all in. For overcast or rainy days, don't worry! Embrace the weather and remember, you're surrounded by loved ones and will have a great time no matter what. Trust me, I can make beautiful photos even in challenging weather.
A sparkler exit is a popular and fun addition to weddings that adds excitement and magic to the special day. Guests hold sparklers and create a glowing tunnel for the newlyweds to walk through, making for a breathtaking moment and great photos. The sound and warmth of the sparklers create a festive atmosphere, and everyone can participate, making it a memorable and inclusive experience. A sparkler exit can also take place just before the first dance as an alternative to the traditional end of the wedding celebration, adding an extra special touch to the start of the newlyweds' first dance. Overall, a sparkler exit is a unique way to celebrate the newlyweds' love and start their journey together.
Good lighting at a wedding reception is important for a number of reasons. Firstly, it sets the mood and atmosphere for the event. The right lighting can create a warm and inviting ambiance, making guests feel comfortable and relaxed. Additionally, good lighting can highlight the decor and architecture of the venue, adding to the overall aesthetic of the event.
Furthermore, it also can serve a functional purpose. For example, good lighting can make it easier for guests to navigate the space, find their seats, and read the menu. Additionally, good lighting can also make it easier to take photographs and videos, which will be important memories for the couple and their loved ones.
Lastly, it can also act as a safety measure by providing enough light to prevent trips and falls. It is important to note that different types of lighting can be used to create different effects, and a good lighting designer will be able to work with the couple to create the desired atmosphere for their wedding reception.
