At the end of April I had the pleasure of capturing Amanda and Sean's wedding. It was such a nice wedding too. They had a small gathering of family and friends at Gleason Park and exchanged their vows. We had a nice amount of time set aside for their bridal portraits and then followed up with a low key reception. Many times today we throw these huge weddings and go all out on the things that don't really matter long term. Don't get me wrong, they are fun weddings, but if your budget doesn't allow it, don't stress about needing all that.
In fact as a photographer, I honestly feel my job is one of the most important the day of your wedding. Once the vows are exchanged, the kiss is sealed, the cake is cut and the flowers are tossed; all you have left is the pictures that are captured. 99% of women never wear their dress again. The flowers will die if you try to keep them. The cake will go stale and the decorations only last so long. The music fades and all you have left are the memories and the photos.
So when you are planning your wedding, I work with you to provide a custom wedding day package to meet your needs and give you the memories you want. And that is just what we did for Amanda and Sean. They wanted to make sure they had nice pictures of the two of them and their family shots. They knew their reception was low key so they option to focus more on them and less on the reception. We got so many great shots of them and we still captured the highlights of the reception too.
Congrats to Amanda and Sean, I wish them the best of luck and a lifetime of happiness!
