Wedding Day Photographic coverage starts by shooting the bride's details: dress, shoes, jewelry, bouquet, etc. Having all of your special "details" ready to be photographed is a huge help and time saver!
One of the most important things to take into consideration for your "getting ready" location is the amount of light in the room. If the location does not have great light, we may ask if we can move your items to a better location with better light and photograph them. Another important note is to make sure the room is clear of clutter or things you may not want in the background of your getting ready images.
We LOVE the First Look. Yes, it is going against tradition but is growing rapidly as a new tradition. A First Look has a huge impact on your wedding photography timeline for the day and provides the opportunity for additional bridal portraits. It also makes the moment you see each other for the first time, an intimate experience that is truly about you. The First Look means only his eyes are on you. Benefits of a first look also include, having additional time for bridal portraits and getting to the reception earlier than usual.
About half of our couples choose to do a first look while the other half choose to stick to tradition. Either way is 100% ok with us!

something borrowed, something blue,

When choosing your details, ensure they are a personal reflection of you as a couple, and help tell your wedding day story.
It's entirely up to you whether you tell your guests to refrain from taking photos or videos or not. Just as a reminder, we cannot avoid having the people also taking photos in the photo we are taking! Once we finish the group photos (bridal party & family), then they are welcome to take as many as they like while we have everyone in one spot.
But, this is the most important thing to remember:
Your wedding day is focused solely on you two and should stay on you. Enjoy every second of this special day!
If you are interested in booking us for your wedding, please contact us to see if we have your date available. Wilmington, North Carolina is a destination wedding location and all vendors tend to book one year or more in advance. What can I say? Wilmington has so many BEAUTIFUL venues and locations for weddings. We do run into double inquiries for the same date, and sometimes we receive these in the same day. Pressuring you into booking with us is not our cup of tea, however we do operate on a first come, first serve basis. If you love what we have to offer, and want us to photograph your wedding, we encourage you to book us as soon as you have made that decision.
