Natural and Candid wedding photography

Wedding Photography Captures the Way You Feel When You Say I Do.

I became a photographer to tell the story of your special day. So the first question I ask all my couples is to tell me more about who you are as a couple and the style of your wedding day. I love natural emotional photographs that will show who you are as a couple.  I LOVE wedding albums to showcase all of those emotional moments. I believe your album should be the finishing statement to an already perfect day. So every collection includes a GraphiStudio Italian-made wedding album.

There are three areas I tell every wedding couple to consider when looking at wedding photography.

  • Style
  • Price
  • Personality

1. Photo Style

First thing I ask about is your wedding style, just as you should ask about wedding photography style. Why ask about your style? Because I want to make sure my style of wedding photography fits the style you want for your wedding day.

Not sure about your style yet? Here is a great blog from The Knot to help.

It’s your wedding day and you deserve a perfect fit. So make sure the style a photographer shoots fits exactly what your are looking for.

The worst thing you can do is hire a photographer that fits your budget first and ask them to shoot a different style.

What is my style of wedding photography?

I prefer a more natural elegant look with very little “instagramy” filters. I love black and white images so you will always get a mix of color and black and white in your final images. I love capturing all those luxury details from the dress to the perfume.  To see more of my style take a look at these featured couples.

2. What is your photo budget

Your budget is an important factor. For me I am known for all day packages because I love telling the story of a day from hair and make-up to the evening festivities.

So my wedding photography collections are based on start time and not set hours. What changes is your album that is included. The higher level collection will give you more pages to start with in your final album.

Here is a little more about my pricing.

3. Personality of the Photographer(s)

The personality of your wedding photographer plays a key role. Your photographer is with you all day you want to feel comfortable with them.

It’s your wedding day not mine.

I tend to stay in the background as much as I can. I take a low key approach because I want you and your friends to act the way you do each and every day.  My goal is to take the stress off of you so you can enjoy the day. Being a photographer for your wedding is a true honor and I feel I should act professional in every way.
