Why Make it Dull and Boring? Unique is where it’s at.

“This was the BEST WEDDING EVER!”

Many brides today are after more than just the traditional wedding day your Mom had. They have their own ideas and their own goals on their wedding day. So let’s explore how you can make that day better and bigger so you and your friends enjoy it more than any they have ever attended!

Church Weddings Out. Great Venues In.

Nearly every bride wants something unique and festive. Perhaps it is in your color selection or your decor. Either way, it’s got to be unique to you. So how can you get that?

Simple! First, define “who am I”? Is your style more festive and perhaps a bit on the wild side? Then definitely you want different. Thought about where that might be? How about a beach wedding where your ceremony lasts 10-15 minutes and then off to the Party! Or how about something along the river where you can create your own color scheme to match the earthiness of your location? Maybe even the more traditional venue with less tradition!

Brides today are all seeking something unique to them and their groom so they can display their own individualistic styles and show who they really are! But it’s about wowing your guests too! So whatever route you go, make sure you give them something that DOES want them staying longer.

Engage them and Share it all!

So many “fun photos” are what keeps your special, one-of-a-kind wedding day alive forever. But making sure your guests are engaged and talking about your wedding for weeks to come is going to be a huge hit with friends as you enjoy your honeymoon. So let’s make it one where you can do that!

Photobooths are fun times, so why not consider one at your wedding! And even the garter toss or bouquet toss doesn’t have to be something boring and old fashioned! One wedding I was recently photographing used a “football” theme to toss the garter! And the bride used a bouquet she tossed that was themed around her favorite football team too- all in their School colors! Most of her guests were fans as well, so that memory of the day went home with 2 happy people.

The possibilities here are endless, so see what you can come up with the will define your wedding day and have more and more engagement and sharing the images of the day!

Collaborate with your vendors to make it FUN!

Far too many vendors have it pretty well “set in stone” how they think your wedding day should go.

WRONG! That is if they want you to hire them that is.

Finding those who will work WITH your ideas and turn them into YOUR reality is whats going to work best for you. How about something totally off the wall in a photograph? Or a song you love but with a wrinkle only YOU can define? All of your ideas coming to life is what will make your wedding day unique and “totally you”!

As a photographer, I love it when brides bring me their Pinterst board of ideas? Why? Because it helps me better understand who they are and the little things that make them tick! And it helps me work with you in creating ideas that are completely unique TO YOU! Why have a super great wedding planned and the same dull and boring photos?

I also want to be sure that the images I create are the ones your friends not only share with their friends, but that your friends do say “WOW! This was the GREATEST WEDDING EVER!” and share everything over and over!

So what if you want grits and red beans for your wedding meal as your side dishes? If you love them, that’s GREAT! But if you want Asiago cheese dinner rolls with whipped butter, that is what you deserve and want. Make sure your vendors are on the same page you are and will work with you to get you the things YOU want and not what “they want to deliver”.

So how is the easiest way to do this? Perhaps this is the time to have a phone conversation over a text or email. Definitely you’ll want to meet with them, but do take a few minutes to talk to several and see where THEY are coming from and if they are asking about the “real you” versus what THEY will deliver!

Make it Easy to Share it with Everyone!

The last thing you want is a day where no one really knows what happened and tells your unique story. So how is that possible to be able to share it with everyone you know?

Apps baby, Apps! As a photographer, I want you to have way to share your wedding day with all your friends and family and do so with a specially designed App just for you! And it’s one your friends can get and use as well.

How can I do that? Because I can. And because I want to. It’s YOUR day and I want YOU to share it over and over so I found a way to make it happen. You can send it to friends and family, post to Social media and do all kinds of neat things with it too!

But what does it cost? Nothing. Nada. Not one red cent. It comes with the package you select and I do all the work in getting your images ready and uploaded for you to share. That way everyone can be a part of your special wedding day and tell everyone how great it was and how much fun they had too.

“Your Wedding Photos are Ready!” What Kind of “tears” Will You Shed When You See Them?

Renae was beyond tired. Her entire day had been filled with photo albums and portfolio’s from other photographers. Her wedding day was only 3 months off and she put this task off as the last thing she needed to do. After all, “how hard can it be to find someone to snap a few pictures?” she reminded herself. “whoever is the cheapest is who I am hiring”.

[….]

Four months have passed since that day that Tom was hired and today was the “big day” for Renae to see her wedding photos. Little did she know what would await her and Kevin.

As Tom, her photographer, opened his laptop and started the slide show, Renae began to tear up. 20 minutes later, the gusher began. Continue reading ““Your Wedding Photos are Ready!” What Kind of “tears” Will You Shed When You See Them?”
