That special day is approaching and you, as the Bride, Groom, Mother, Father,
Best Man, Maid of honor or just concerned relative are frantically attending to
dozens, if not hundreds of details. You have precious little time to deal
with the photographer and we appreciate that as much as you do, having been both
married and photographer at weddings.
We think you shouldn't have to "deal" with him. He or she
should be out of the way and get the shots without interrupting the proceedings
or requiring modification of them in any way. We want to be your shadow,
not a brick wall in the way of progress. We will quietly and smoothly get
where we need to do with a minimum of interface and yet, will include you in the
decisions of what images will be important to you and how you want your ceremony
and reception to presented.
One tool that is available to you to lessen the stress involved in
planning your wedding photographic experience is to schedule
a free consultation to discuss all your requirements.
We will be glad to sit down with you as soon as you decide
engagement photos are needed and plan a shoot that focuses on your
personalities. The engagement will key in on the story that you
want to tell about yourselves. The resulting photos will preserve the
people that you are for as long as you have them. Let's get
started planning this vital step, now.
|With us, the wedding actually starts the day before the ceremony when we
attempt to get as much information as possible to assist us in planning your
shot list. We would love to meet with you at the church or other site of
the ceremony so we can plan where we will be able to get the best shots.
We'll go over your guest list and see whom you would like in the various
We will make suggestions from our previous experiences that might
suggest shots that don't occur to you. At the same time, you will give us
ideas for shots that we haven't done before that will probably wind up in our arsenal for
We will take away from this consultation a firm idea of how we want
to shoot the wedding to best record, as artistically as possible, the
beauty of the day and leave you with a collection of remembrances that
will be with you for a lifetime.
The day has arrived
On the day of the wedding, we will arrive at the site of the reception before
anyone else so we can set up any lighting necessary and plan any shots specific
to the reception. We will get the "lay of the land" and prepare
as much as we can. During this period, the bride is probably having her
hair and makeup done. We would love an opportunity to slip in and get
artistic/artistic photographs of this facet of the wedding. It only
happens once, but you'll want to see it forever. These special moments
make for some rather moving photos that will make your Borrowed Light Images
stand out from others you've seen.
As the ceremony approaches, we will move into high gear, arriving at the
ceremony in time to record the guests arriving in candid photographs without
disturbing them. We will place ourselves as we've predetermined we
should be placed in order to get the best captures of the crucial milestones
("I do's", exchanging rings, first kiss, etc.). We'll move
quietly and smoothly from one location to another and let the ceremony proceed
at its own pace, always mindful of our responsibility to get the shots that you
want in your wedding portfolio and knowing who is most important on this special
After the ceremony, we will take the formal shots with whomever you've
designated as your preferred subjects at whatever location we've predetermined
is the right place and time. We will then get to the reception and capture
all those special moments that make this celebration more than just a party.
During the early parts of the reception, we will prepare a slide show of the
pre-ceremony and ceremony images captured up to that point. This show can
run all during the reception from one of our projectors coupled to a laptop so
guests can re-live the special moments during the reception. If you like,
we can record this slide show to a CD so you can replay it anytime you like or
send it to friends or family who weren't able to attend.
By the end of the day, you will be exhausted and so will we, but we will have
a feeling of having made that special day one that will last forever in
After the wedding, you'll be starting to get anxious to see those cherished
images that you've already seen on the slide show, so we won't make you wait an
extra minute. We'll begin processing the images into proofs that will be
posted on a private, password-protected web page so you and all your loved ones
can visit and order prints. In addition to individual prints, there will
be wedding packages, of course, enabling significant savings.
If you want, we can even get email addresses at the reception and notify all
your guests of the availability of the proofs. We would, of course,
protect the privacy of the information gathered.
We will keep your photos online for one year from the date of the
ceremony. When the time comes for us to take them down, we will
give you a month's notice, in case there are still some straggling
relatives who just haven't gotten around to ordering their prints.
After they come down, you can still order, but you will have to order
from the disc of proofs and send us an email with the file number and
what you would like to have printed.
