Welcome to my blog!

Thanks so much for dropping by my blog and taking a peak.  Now I never claim to know everything, or be perfect, or even being able to spell!  I work really hard to not only be a good photographer, but have a personal connection to my clients and understanding what they want (especially when they might not know).  In addition I love to help others improve their own pictures.  Let's face it...no one can afford a personal photographer to follow them around 24/7 (but if you do know someone give them my name!). 

My blog has a collection of advise, current photo experiences and the personal updates.  My new 2012 series (TT- Tipsy Thursday) is a combo of all kinds of questions I've received, things I've seen & even those mistakes I've made in my years of shooting.  I'm ALWAYS in need to know what other people want to hear about, so please email me with ANY suggestions.  Again thanks for stoping by and hopefully you enjoy!

Tipsy Thursday #25

I've got a few things that make your wedding pictures a whole lot better and sometime not embarrassing!

  1. When you're kissing your partner, first kiss is up to you but it's to your own taste if you want to look like you're making out in front of your entire family.  Back to the topic...when you're kissing your partner keep you lips relaxed but more closed than open.  Hold your kisses for around 3 second or longer.  Your photographer wants to get several shots and quick touch of your lips isn't good enough.  Also don't over pucker your lips, if you're in doubt what looks like too much....PRACTICE IN THE MIRROR!
  2. When feeding cake to each other, don't get a huge piece...you'll have to over extend your jaw and just look funny.  But especially for guys, don't stick you tongue out!  It is natural for some to do this when they put food in their mouth and it just looks silly when you're supposed to be in this sweet moment together.
  3. Remember red wine not only stains your dress when your drunk uncle Bob knocks your drink but it stains your lips/tongue.  Little bit is ok but if your downing the glasses of red vino all night...your pictures when you're leaving will be "interesting" to say the least.
  4. Inform your maid of honor that part of her duties are to help with your dress/veil/etc.  That means when you're taking pictures with your husband she needs to be helping make your dress look just right, making sure your veil isn't folded over or your necklace doesn't have the chain turned to the front.  YES your photographer should notice all these things, but if your MOH is there to do the correcting your pictures will be over that much quicker!  Then you can return to the party!!!
  5. In rehearsal, work with your wedding party on the right speed to walk down the aisle.  You don't want to fall asleep slow but a slower tempo will allow your photographer to get a few shots of everyone and not a blur as they run down the aisle!
