Lights, Camera, ACTION! | Wedding Photography Blog

I love doing wedding photography because it allows me to photograph in different styles all day long.

One minute I am a commercial photographer shooting details, the next a photojournalist and the next a fashion photographer.  Pretty exciting.  My friends always ask me if it does not feel like Ground Hog’s Day.  I can honestly say it does not.  Every wedding is different–the people are different, the details are different, the emotions are different.  One of the things I hope to accomplish with this wedding photography blog is share some of the things that make me love my job so much.

Wishing Well Wedding Photo 01
I generally like to start photographing the Getting Ready portion of the day with details. They are usually very unique and can set the tone for the day.

One of my favorite times of the day is when the bride and groom are getting ready.  It is chaotic and exciting.  Everyone is running around getting things done last minute.  People get emotional and let their guard down.  So here are some of my favorite getting ready shots from this year.  I hope you like them too.

This was just a moment with this little girl getting ready and the light was hitting her face so nicely.

I loved that this little girl was getting ready right by the bride’s dress.
Saratoga Wedding Photo
I like that you can see both the mom and daughter getting made up here.
Lake Placid Wedding Photo
How cute is this? I like when I get to take pictures of the guys getting ready so we have more of a complete story.

One more from the same wedding. I like to use different vantage points–it is more interesting.

I love how Britta’s face goes from this. . .

Black and White is one of the things that makes this image so nice, in my mind.

Close up of the same moment. Love the expression. Again, the black and white tones make the image.

I like the way Jackie is looking out the window at Nate leaving for the ceremony.
