I like to meet with the Bride and groom at least 5 to 6 months before the wedding to get to know them, as well as to get their expressions or ideas of what kind of images they would like me to create for their special day. I love taking candid shots! I feel that these kind of shots truly get the emotions of the day. However, I also take into consideration the parents on both sides by taking family traditional portraits. So for that reason I like to meet with her to get her ideas for her daughters very special day. We discuss group shots who will be in these, sometimes there are special circumstances it is good to know these things before hand, so there will be no misunderstandings or confusion. Although a wedding is a happy occasion, you will come to find out that it can be a little stressful and emotional. So by implementing this format it will run a little smoother. An organized wedding is a happier one. I wish you all the happiness that this day will bring.
