4 things your wedding photographer wants you to know!

It’s almost your big day, you’re getting ready to have one of the most special, most emotional, most remarkable days of your life. AND, it’s the day when you have the most photos of you taken…ever

Here are just a few things your photographer wants you to know. 👇🏼

Don’t forget to look up!

As you take that unforgettable walk down the aisle, resist the urge to look down at the ground. It can feel a little (or a lot!) overwhelming when so many eyes are on you, but if you look down for too long all of your photos will be of you staring at the ground. Instead, lock eyes with your partner and let the world (and all of your guests) fade away. It might sound simple, but this ensures your photos capture the love and connection you share in that magical moment.

You Are the Stars, so Stand Center Stage!

You’ve poured your heart, time, and money into creating a stunning arbor for your ceremony. Don’t let your photos be anything less than perfect by standing off-center. Position yourself right in the middle of that gorgeous arch, your wedding photos will thank you! (And if you don’t think you’ll remember this in the moment, place a marker on the ground for you two to notice and stand on during your ceremony!!)

Savor the Smooch!

Your first kiss as a married couple is a monumental life moment. Don’t rush past it! Yes, a long smooch in front of all your loved ones may feel awkward – but you want to take the time to soak it in! You’re married!! You did it!!! That’s what this kiss means. It not only adds a lovely connection between you and your partner, but also gives your photographer the opportunity to capture one of the most special moments of the day, the one that marks the beginning of your journey as a married couple. 

Back Down the Aisle, Seal it with a Kiss!

As you joyfully recess down the aisle as a married couple, why not take a  moment to bask in the limelight as all your loved ones cheer you on and seal the deal with another kiss? Your guests will love it, and your photographer will have the opportunity to capture the pure joy and love radiating through you and all of your best people. It’s a fun and spontaneous moment that will make for unforgettable photos! 

Keep these tips in mind, and you’re sure to have photos that truly reflect the beauty and love of your big day!

Making my dream wedding come true!
Gabriella was hired by my (now) husband, as a surprise photographer for our proposal. She was phenomenal and we hired her for our wedding as well! Her energy and vision for our wedding photos captured every moment and emotion. She was amazing in every way. Her attention to detail and knowing what was important to me on my big day was awesome - she went the extra mile. I would 10/10 recommend her to any one wanting to capture beautiful moments in life - for their engagement, wedding, and more.

"She went the extra mile."

Hiring Gabriella was one of the best decisions that we made during our wedding planning. From our very first conversation, Gabriella was warm & bubbly. She radiates positive energy that I knew that we needed for our big day. Gabriella has a vigorous work ethic and eye for detail. Her ability to transform any setting is pure magic. We enjoyed working with her throughout the planning process and are absolutely thrilled with our engagement and wedding photos (which she had edited and back to us in less than one month!).
