Why you should love your photographer...

On your wedding day you will be spending about 85-90% of your entire day with your photographer by your side. They will be guiding you through every step of the day! You want someone there you trust, who is organized, and who you can have fun with!

When you love your photographer and get along with them really well you can let your guard down around them. You can crack silly jokes and laugh and have fun! In doing so, you end up with not only amazing and genuine photos, but you'll have an even better experience!

When you've taken the time to get to know the person photographing you, they will know and understand your specific needs and wants. They will know the best way to capture you and bring out your best smiles, laughs, and natural emotions. Plus who doesn't love making new friends?!

The Best Bridal Bouquets of 2022

December 9, 2022

The bridal bouquets are a stunning focal point of a wedding day! When I was getting married over 11 years ago now, I had chosen to go with an artificial bouquet. I still have it to this day and it was beautiful. But if I could do it over I would have chosen to go with a real killer bridal bouquet from a florist. Real flowers make ALL the difference in your images. They photograph so much better than artificial ones. We had so many stunning bridal bouquets in 2022! They were all so different from each other as well. I love seeing the creativity my brides and their florists have come up with. The colors, the pairings of different varieties of florals and greenery. They truly shine on the wedding day.

If you’re considering using artificial flowers for your wedding, I would suggest to at least splurge on your own bridal bouquet. We can repurpose it in so many different ways in your images! I love getting close up images of your florals as well as using them in your portraits and even on your reception table! I love using them to help tell the story of your wedding day.

Bouquets That Fit The Bride

I love how each of these bouquets fit each of these brides perfectly! The dahlias especially for Kellie’s wedding, who loves them. All of her reception flowers for her tables came out of her own garden! And this first bouquet that belonged to Layne fit her as well as their winter wedding, which didn’t actually include florals at all. I’ve never seen a greenery bouquet so beautiful you don’t even miss the flowers in it! Alexa’s soft pink and blue bouquet fit her elegant and vintage themed wedding so perfectly at the historic Ainsworth House and Gardens. From the soft pastel pinks to the bright colors of summer to the elegant green and white bouquets. STUNNING! Every single one of them. I can’t wait to see what bouquets await for 2023!
