A photographer who believes in authentic beautiful love and that it should be captured with elegant artistry to showcase that beauty.
Welcome to my journal where I pour out everything from resources for my brides to be to sharing all of my sweet couples' love stories and special days!
The detail shots or what my brides call the “pretty shots“ are definitely one of my favorite parts of the day. With my two larger wedding packages I block out the first hour to capture all these little items that some people overlook. Couples work really hard to choose each item that will be incorporated into their day. I like to highlight each one so it won’t be forgotten. The detail shots are usually some of my couples favorite images because they capture all the significant items. With these items it starts to tell the whole story of their wedding!
My goal is to make sure nothing is overlooked or forgotten. I send each of my couples a list of all the detail items that I request to be set aside ahead of time. First I want to note that you don’t need to have all these items incorporated into your wedding day. If there are items on the list you plan to have on the wedding day make sure to add them to what I call the “Wedding Day Detail Box.”
Below is a list of 10 important items you don’t want to forget!
With all of my couples I ask that they send me a wedding invitation when they send out all their wedding invites to their guests. I request them to send everything in an envelope with it addressed and stamped. This allows me to see what colors they have chosen and allows me to get an idea of the feel of the wedding. It also will serve as a backup for the wedding day, if the bride forgets to add it to her wedding day detail box. Add any extra paper products including: name tags, ceremony cards, and the menu!
