capturing the ones you love: take the time to take those portrait images

Are you wondering if you should book your photographer for the full 8hrs? Are you thinking that all that time would not be necessary. If you are on the fence… know that I full heartedly believe that you should pull the trigger.

It allows your photographer to understand the lighting, the space, the details and your loved ones. It is not every day that we have a photographer in front of us. It feels weird, it takes a while to get used to them in our space. Allow everyone that you love to get used to them too. You know your photographer and that is why you booked them, but your loved ones have yet to interact with them. Allow them some time to get used to them too.

And let’s be real, that are so many things going on that day, makeup, hair, getting dressed, saying hi to your Aunt Sue you only see once every 5 years, etc. All that takes time. Allow your photographer to capture those moments that you will cherish and get the gang together. Allow time for everyone to get in front of the camera.

And let’s not forget the details that you spent all that time on. The invitations, boutonniere’s, bouquets etc. All those items need to be styled and shot and as much as we want to think we are wizards and void of time. Those styling images take time too! Allow time for art to happen.

walking into the unknown: designing events with intention

Copying what we have done in our daily lives works well for most things. I tend not to reinvent how I take a shower, make my bed or brush my teeth. As we have created efficient methods that have become routine.

Designing weddings and events can fall into the same patterns. I have been guilty of this, as it also can help with efficiency and ease. And shall I say that it allows clients to feel comfortable that we are not taking risks with their special event.

On the other hand, bringing in a couple elements that might have never been introduced before can not only make your client feel special, but create intention with design. New design elements reminds us that each one of our clients is unique and that all our designs have them at the forefront of creation.

To our future clients, allow us to take some risks and meld that into what you feel comfortable with. The combination of both allows for the most beautiful events we have ever created.
