Wedding Reception Details

Choices and decisions …When you’re planning your wedding reception there are SO many choices to make from the table cards to the centerpieces & the cake and the favors.

Wedding Photography Before The Ceremony

It’s your wedding day and one that you’ll never forget getting ready for! I’m always glad to show up early and shoot photos of the bride getting ready. For Lauren’s wedding she was able to get ready at the Maid of Honor’s salon which is on the property.

Wedding Ceremony Photography

Lauren & Peter’s wedding ceremony was in the perfect setting, the family’s backyard on the patio. Wedding ceremony photography is always candid. Don’t even pay attention to me at all. Concentrate on each other and enjoy this once in a lifetime moment while I capture it all for you to re-live again & again…

Wedding Party Photography

Wedding party photography is always a blast and one of my favorite parts of wedding photography day. I always try to be a creative as I can with the wedding party photos. With Lauren & Peter’s wedding we began with some wedding party photos near one of the family’s classic cars, then made our way towards a cornfield on the property for more wedding party shots, using the natural surroundings. We got all kinds of photos of the bridal party; from the more traditional style to having the whole bridal party crowd around me as I lay on the ground. It made for some interesting photos for sure…

Photography of the Bride and Groom

I always like to take the wedding party photos first, then steal the bride and groom & get photos of the newly married couple to capture their excitement. We capture plenty of photos of the bride and groom together, some solo portraits, and make sure to get some the small details that went into the day, the brides veil and dress details, etc. After this it’s on to the reception to celebrate!

Wedding Reception Photography

Time to celebrate with all your guests! Wedding reception photography tends to be in the candid and photojournalism style from here on out, As as the case for Lauren & Peter. I’m always ready for all the big moments, making sure to capture the new couple’s introduction, first dance, wedding cake cutting, and whatever reception events you also have planned.
