When I am planning a photo shoot for a wedding, the bride & groom and I meet in person. I check out the venue and talk to the bride about certain poses she'd prefer. I get the feel from her likes and dislikes and they often email me ideas for their special day. I feel communication and meticulous planning is the key to a successful day.
What I like best about shooting weddings is the ever-changing variety in venue's, personalities, colors and atmospheres. No wedding is the same so it keeps me on my toes. The weather plays a huge part in the couple's portraits. I always have a backup plan for rain/snow as this is an uncontrollable aspect of the day.
