Ever wonder if it’s truly possible to get magazine-worthy wedding images? You know, the ones that look like they belong in a magazine? Well, friends, we’re happy to say the answer is YES! We’ve compiled our top tips for brides who want jaw-dropping images on your wedding day to know! (…and who doesn’t?!)
When you think of your beautiful wedding day, you probably envision spending time with your spouse and loved ones, but does your photographer & videographer also come to mind? Your wedding photo + video team is with you every step of the way, capturing your sweet moments as they pass you by in a whirlwind of bliss. Keep in mind that it’s so important to select a wedding team that you connect with along with admiring their work.
In addition to liking your wedding photo + video team, it’s so essential to trust them! This goes far beyond knowing they’ll capture and deliver your images as your contract states; it requires complete trust in their process and artistic ability. While this may be the first wedding you’ve ever planned, remember that it’s your wedding team’s career; they know what to expect. Lean on them when creating your wedding day timeline, and allow them to help you plan accordingly for the best light in your day. We promise you won’t regret it!
Creating a work of art through the lens requires vulnerability. The stunning work you see in your wedding photographer & videographer’s portfolio came to fruition by clients that made the choice to expose their true selves in front of the lens. By letting your guard down and allowing them to capture the raw emotion you share with your spouse on the incredible day you say “I Do” ensures that you’ll receive those dreamy, magazine-worthy wedding images you’ve always hoped for in return.
Memories are fleeting. What your wedding photo + video team freezes in time will be the best and most blessed moments of your life, in all their splendor, for you to cherish. As the years fo by, when you look back through your wedding images you’ll be able to remember every moment: the whirlwind of emotion as you walk down the aisle, the tear in your eye as you utter your vows, the first kiss you share as a married couple. Your wedding photographer & videographer are able to give you something that is completely unique to other vendors, and that’s why investing in someone who not only understands your vision but can bring it to life is so, so worth it.
