Over the past few weeks I have been asking some of my favorite vendors if they would be interested in writing a guest blog post for my blog. When I spoke with Alan he jumped on the opportunity. I always enjoy working with him. If you are still looking for an officiant make sure you contact Alan. He will make your ceremony exactly how you dreamed.
Making your wedding ceremony picture perfect:
The typical on-location wedding that I conduct lasts about 20 minutes. To the couple, it will seem like an instant. They will rely on the wedding photography to remember the moment in the years to come. I work very closely with photographers like Ryan to ensure that the best memories are captured.
Most experienced photographers have run into the church minister, who often decrees that no photographs are to be taken during the ceremony. The couple may get one or two furtively taken photos of their ceremony. Unfortunately, some of the best moments where the couple commit to each other and show the emotional bond between them will be lost.
I work closely with Ryan so that all the best memories can be captured. I want it to be a picture perfect wedding. I make it a priority to plan the wedding shots with Ryan before the wedding. This I know that the couple will have cherished photos of the ceremony.
Over the years, I learned the following really helps capture the special moments:
I discuss what’s happening:
This is a simple practice that I do just before the wedding starts. I go through the ceremony, highlighting special events, such as readers or rituals like the Unity Sand Ceremony. Then Ryan knows what is coming up. I also give him the cues for key times in the ceremony, like when the couple will kiss.
I work with Ryan on the visuals:
On-location weddings can offer some challenges for photography. I work to ensure that we have the best light for the couple and a suitable background. I want to ensure we have the best possible shot available. Before the ceremony starts, I ask Ryan about all the angles that will be best and adapt what I can.
You won’t see me in the background of your key moment shots:
In most wedding photos, you see the minister in the background during the kiss. Sometimes, the photographer will be clever and hide the minister behind the groom. All these are awkward compromises. I instruct the couple to hold the kiss for ten seconds, and then I just step out of the way. The result is a beautiful photo of the couple’s first kiss at the wedding ceremony. Keep it simple, just a nice embrace and smooch.
The feedback I get from couples is phenomenal. The bride and groom are so appreciative of the attention that has been placed on making their day memorable and picture perfect.
