I feel being well organised and structured myself can really help the couple relax during the build up to the ceremony. Part of a photographers job should be to take the stress out of a wedding day, not add to it. And I'll arrive in good time to ensure nothing feels rushed.
And the organising that is done in advance - batteries charged, lenses and sensors cleaned, equipment tested and spares for everything just in case to ensure everything that should be recorded on the day ends up on a memory card ready for processing. Preparation and planning that make it possible to preserve those unique memories of each unique day.
The complete package for a timeless reminder of every part of your day, a more intimate option with just photos of the venue, the ceremony and a photoshoot afterwards, or any combination of the above!
The best time of day for photos! The most dramatic skies and the most flattering light can help create some incredible photos, but the timing doesn't always fit in with the logistics of a wedding day. Sometimes the best beach is a short drive away which means leaving your guests while the party's in full swing.
Many couples choose to do this a day or two after the wedding. It's stress free as there's no rush, and is a fun experience. And you have a larger choice of beaches as there's less restrictions to travel time. (The best beach will vary during the year depending on its orientation compared to the position of the sunrise or sunset).
And once the weddings over and the bride won't be wearing the dress again why not make full use of it. Be brave and adventurous, go a step further and "Trash the Dress!"
It ties in nicely with a sunrise or sunset photoshoot!
