PROFESSIONALISM is key and I enjoy what I do and want everyone around us to enjoy themselves as well.  I ALWAYS show up early. I love capturing the raw state of the venue before and after your personal touches have been placed as it gives a greater appreciation for the time and effort put into your day.
As the two of you get ready I will be there snapping shots and capturing the candid and organic composition of your attire. Making people smile is something I am good at and it is great to have everyone relaxed and comfortable before the great walk down the aisle.  Rather you choose to see each other before the ceremony or after, I have experience in capturing the intimate moment that you will have when you see each other for the first time regardless if it is in a secluded area of the ceremony site or coming down the aisle.
I get things rolling by taking some fun formal and informal group shots.  I get to know the bridal party a little better and I will be there as everyone prepares for your grand entrance.
This is not a photo shoot.  It is your wedding day.  Rather you have a religious ceremony or a destination wedding, I respect the love that you two share and want to allow you two to fully cherish the moment.  I have both the experience and the equipment that will allow us to be away from the two of you so all eyes remain on you during the ceremony while I am capturing it all.
Weddings can be just like family reunions and the formal (posed) shots are quick.  I usually have my couples prepare a list of the people that they want shots with. The obvious formal shots are immediate family on both sides, but people tend to forget about uncle Jim from Maine and Aunt Debbie from California.  I will not forget about them though and they will be wrangled and their picture will be taken.  Please Note:  No family members have ever been harmed during wrangling for photos.
As I capture the guests and the first dance, toasts, cutting of the cake, and all of the details of your evening I will also make sure that you are getting photos with other guests that you would like.  Also, I will get on the dance floor to capture everyone's happy feet. I will check out with you two before I leave and I never leave at the prearranged time without a proper see ya later!
