Few occasions are as important in a person’s life as a wedding. It’s an event that means so many different at once to so many different people. At its core, it is the union of two people who vow to spend the rest of their lives of each other. It’s taking the plunge and making a commitment, bringing together two separate families and joining them together like never before.  It’s a day filled with laughter, tears, and most of all, love. With so much going on during this exciting party, there’s a lot to look out for in terms of photography.

Focusing on what’s truly important

With so many thing to pay attention to at a wedding, there is really one thing that a photographer really needs to focus on, and that’s the people. Whether it’s the newlyweds toasting or enjoying an intimate moment, or all the guests, overwhelmed with feelings of happiness, joy, with a tear shed here and there, there are tons of moments that truly need to be captured on film in order to be preserved for years. It’s all about capturing the anticipation on the face of the bride as she goes down the aisle, or the pride mixed with overwhelming emotion the parents are bound to be going through. All of these moments are fleeting – all those tears of joy, laughter, intimate moments – and it’s my job to make sure you can return to them at any point. This is why I love my job so much.

Capturing the moment

No two weddings are the same. Of course, there are certain common elements, like the more formal part of the ceremony and then the reception, but how they look varies from couple to couple. Some people opt for secular weddings, while others stick very closely to the traditions of their culture. I’m here to tell you that, no matter which way you go, I’ll be there to capture every moment. Whether you’re having a Christian wedding or a Jewish one, I’ll be happy to document every part of it. From the very start of whatever ceremony you have planned to the final dances of the reception, you can count on a great variety of pictures that really capture the essence of the evening. You’ll get a fantastic, recreation of this uniquely magical night, so that you can come back to it at any moment. This is what wedding photography is all about – making sure that all these magical moments are preserved for years to come.

It’s all about the emotion

The excitement of cutting the cake, the laughs and thrills of wedding games, the solemn silence of the wedding ceremony, or the tears of reminiscing parents. If there’s one thing weddings always are, regardless of the background and the form the event takes, it’s emotional. It’s a moment for the whole family that brings great happiness, but also change, and people always react strongly to such events. There’s a certain beauty to all of these emotions, and making sure it’s remembered is one of the most important aspects of a wedding photographer’s job. It requires a degree of sensitivity and alertness, as you have to be anticipating those moments and be ready to capture them. It’s also hard to deny the fact that we also often get swept away by the emotions ourselves. Experiencing it all fits-hand while also documenting it at the same time is definitely one of the biggest draws of this job.

Weddings are unique stories that are just waiting to be told. Make sure yours is told well with a professional photographer.

Our engagement photographs turned out fantastic, all thanks to Renata. She has an amazing eye for detail and captured all the magic in the moment. She was so pleasant to be around that it felt like we were being photographed by an old friend.
