This post is really sweet and simple. As photographers, we understand the importance of good light. Whether it’s indoors or outdoors, we need to be aware at all times what the light is like, otherwise your pictures can be drastically different if you don’t know what you’re doing with the light. Often times we find […]

For Photographers | Turn OFF the Lights

When brides first get engaged, they start with the big picture: venue, caterer, photographer, band, etc; but once they get those larger and important things squared away, they start to look to the smaller things that make and add to their day: the details. While these may be smaller on the scale of the wedding […]

As a wedding photographer, I will admit that family formals on the wedding day are my least favorite part of the day. I think most photographers would agree with me on this. They are not exciting, they don’t fit with my style of candid pictures, and honestly, they aren’t fun. Wrangling 20+ people in a […]

For Photographers | Taking Successful Family Formals

Last week, I did a post on making first impressions in person. I discussed the importance of people seeing you as yourself and making a good first impression through focusing on them. Online first impressions are a little more difficult. You don’t get to talk with them or interact with them face to face, so […]

For Photographers | Lasting Online First Impressions

You know that first impressions are super important in life in general. You meet someone at a party and they act like a complete idiot or jerk in the first 5 minutes of meeting them, they are going to have a hard time fixing your first impression of them. You meet someone at an office […]

I took last week off from my Post-Wedding Turnaround series as I was out of town in Boston visiting family. If I can, I take the week off from blogging when I’m out of  town. Two weeks ago I talked about my culling process; today I am going to discuss my editing process. If you […]

For Photographers | Post-Wedding Turnaround | Editing Process

As a wedding photographer, the obvious best part of the process is capturing the pictures. You get to capture the best day of peoples lives through pictures. Most wedding photographers would agree, however, that the worst part of the wedding process is the culling of the pictures. We take so many throughout the day and don’t […]

For Photographers | Post-Wedding Turnaround | Culling

Last week, I discussed my old post-wedding process and how it would take me forever to turnaround a wedding. (If you’re just finding this post, go back and read my first one and then come back to this one.) On average, I was taking 8 weeks, stretching my picture delivery to the end of my range […]

For Photographers | Post-Wedding Turnaround | The Products

I will be the first one to say that I used to be terrible at my post-wedding turnaround. Having a full-time job as a middle school teacher, I had a lot of grading and planning to do outside of school, so adding a wedding to edit on top of my full time job was challenging. […]
