When photographing weddings I have 2 main things to remember.
1 – To get the photos I need to on the day
2 – To make sure without a shadow of a doubt you spend time with your family and friends. After all you invited them for a reason right?
My approach to a photographing a wedding is quite simple. Remember the 2 above rules. I call it 50/50. Meaning 50% of the day I photograph the “needed shots” such as bridal party , ceremony and family photos. The other 50% is candid, unscripted, as it happens shooting. I love nothing more than sitting back and watching it all unfold and really be a fly on the wall. I will of course let you know if there is a killer sunset or gorgeous light that we should be using but apart from that the day is yours to enjoy.
“Lisa made both James and I feel very comfortable through out the whole day and she knew what we were after on the day and really took notice on how we were feeling.
Sometimes we had no idea she was around and other times she gave us direction when needed. We had a great time with Lisa!
She is fun, loving, talented, professional, efficient and she absolutely loves her job!!
We genuinely still don’t understand how Lisa took photos from every angle without being noticed, especially during the ceremony where the perimeter was packed with guests, without missing a shot.
She made our photos with the wedding party so effortless and fun, and at reception captured all the guests, took requests from everyone, and snuck off with us for nighttime photos (some of our favourites of the day).
So many of our wedding guests have commented on how friendly Lisa was, she was easy to talk to and laid back from start to finish.
She was open to ideas if we had them and made sure all the photos we mentioned we wanted were included. Lisa made us both feel so relaxed on the day and makes getting your photos taken fun!
