As a classic, romantic Southeast Wisconsin wedding photographer, I turn "Nobody really looks at their wedding pictures anyway" into "Our pictures are the best ever."
Nothing says that more than pictures you can't stop looking at. If you find that here, please explore, tell me about you or use my live chat and I'll be happy to help.
As soon as stick meets lip, brush meets hair or tie meets suit, you've chosen a fairy tale for your wedding day.
So celebrate it already!
Your wedding will be real no matter what your photographer does. Sneaking around in shadows, shooting from the bushes won't make it more real or emotional, nor will a little lighting and gentle direction make it less so.
Sometimes it's the gentle prompts that cue up something far more impactful than if the moment had simply breezed past you. And sometimes, yes, the photographer just needs to stand back.
I don't place arbitrary rules on awesomeness -- like not doing something because of what someone else thinks wedding photography should be, or, worse, doing it for that same reason.
If there's an awesome picture, we're pretty much going to do it, as long as it stays true to your story and doesn't interrupt natural magic in progress. You'll never get another day just like this as long as you live, so I embrace every opportunity.
And I won't do it how everyone else does. This is my craft and my promise.
