Planning the Wedding Family/Party Formals

Planning the Wedding Family/Party Formals

Wedding Day Formals are the unsung heroes of your wedding photos gallery. Though my clients love how I capture the candid and informal moments throughout their days, the posed family and wedding party portraits are actually some of the most printed/shared/and loved images from any wedding. Formal portraits are lightly posed groupings of your loved ones all looking at the camera (and hopefully smiling and not blinking ;) ).

Considering an Unplugged Wedding Ceremony

Considering an Unplugged Wedding Ceremony

It's a scene I've seen play out again and again: as one partner waits at the front of the aisle, beaming with anticipation, their counterpart enters through the door on the arm of a loved one. He wipes away a tear. She lights up. Their eyes hold one another as they breathe in the moment. They look out to the friends and family who have joined them to celebrate this momentous occasion in their lives...and phone screens stare back at them. 

Your Perfect Wedding Day Schedule

Your Perfect Wedding Day Schedule

In life I’m a planner and a list maker. I don’t do any job, take any trip or throw a dinner party without sitting down and working through the details in list after list (flight and hotel information, menus, timeline for cooking, who has what allergies, etc. etc.). I’ve found that even when (especially when!!) I want something to feel laid back and fun I need to consider these plans beforehand because when you go into anything well prepared and well thought out it’s so much easier to relax and enjoy the experience. Your wedding day is exactly the same. If you set up a schedule that accurately allows time needed for each task and builds in some cushion here and there you are way more likely to have a day that is stress free and fun, even if things run behind a bit or something unexpected comes up.
