We recently shared one of our favourite shoots to date here. We deliberately left some out (they are some of my - Emily's - favourite shots from the day) as we wanted to showcase them in their own space. At one point, we took Katerina, our wonderful model, aside and took a few bridal shots in her gorgeous Studio C Bridal dress. With the cloudy day and resulting soft, diffuse lighting, everything came together the way we wished.
Here is a tip: everyone has different priorities and expectations for their wedding day. Some want to capture the moments between friends. Or family. Or both. Or celebrate the couple as they start a fresh, new journey together. Sometimes it's the details that are the product of countless hours researching and preparing. It can be anything and we are here to capture what is important to you and your significant other. However, if portraits are high priority for both of you, it is sometimes a good idea to schedule a separate day to focus on portraits alone; the wedding day itself really does fly by.
We recommend a separate day for portraits particularly in the case that one of the two of you doesn't like having a camera pointed in their direction. Fine! No problem. Let your partner enjoy the spotlight for the day and be captured in that suit or gown that may or may not be worn again. Better yet, line it up as a sneaky surprise and treat your SO - we are always on board for those kinds of bookings!
