m/A - Common Questions
Q: Do you take group-guests shots at each table?
A: This is really up to you. If not requested, I do try to capture your guests throughout your day in their natural state and interactions with others. My approach is less planned, less posed, and captures your guests in natural interactions.
Q: Do you take any formal posed photographs?
A: Yes, I do take family Formals at your Wedding. However, they go quickly in that I shoot them naturally (without sacrificing creativity or quality) so that we can get back to the party. We will work together to determine what is best for you.
Q: Do you believe it is better for the bride and groom to see each other before the Wedding?
A: Yes, it becomes a special moment known as the "Reveal" when the bride and groom see each other for the first time prior to their Ceremony. Doing so enables me / us to capture great emotion between the Bridal couple as they see each other for the first time that day..! It also provides time to take family and bridal party shots, so that the bride and groom may join their cocktail hour.
