Every feel like your days are turning into months and months are turning into years faster than you can keep up??
Yeah, me too; more so lately as I write up another Month in Review.
Let's dive right in, shall we?
While your cocktail hour is so much fun for your wedding guests to freshen up with some chilled champagne, a cold brew, or some treats, as a wedding photographer I like to call this time: Photo Hour.
Ever wonder when do the wedding couple get a chance to take those stunning wedding portraits of just them glowing and basking in each other's admiration? It's most likely taken during cocktail hour, and as long as you've got treats and wedding drinks handy your guests won't even notice you're gone (Sorry to break it to you). However, you will have this amazing time to take those stunning wedding portraits of you and your forever partner-in-crime done in the mean time.
Not sure if cocktail hour is necessary for your wedding, let chat shall we?
We all do it at one point or another. We meet someone for the first time, shake their hand introduce ourselves, exchange a quick little story, and we tell ourselves that we'll remember this person's name and what they do. But the truth is, we forget.
We may remember something about their story that stuck out, what they did for a living or what they wore. So there's nothing different when it comes to meeting a few dozen different wedding vendors month after month as you plan out your wedding day. As you try and remember everyone's name and keep their phone number in your phone, remembering their business names or social media handles are not particularly on the top of the list of remembering (at least not when you're planning one of the biggest events of your lives)...
I sat across the table with her in a crowded Starbucks coffee shop when she told me that she didn't even know where to start. As we both had an iced cold coffees in hand, a small part of me thought, "Well, I'm a photographer, not a wedding planner." came across my mind, I still knew I had to help her. This was the among the first weddings I had ever shot.
There are wedding receptions, and then there are wedding receptions with your best friends who are obsessed with Harry Potter. Seeing as Tawny and Julieanne got engaged while vacationing in Harry Potter World, it was only fitting they have a wedding reception themed by the wizarding world.
