Coming up with the right wedding photography packages is extremely difficult. And I guess the way I looked at it was, what does the client want and how can I provide that? But, after taking to a dozen brides I came to realize that everyone wants something different. Not all weddings are the same and I will always admit that.
So, as my skill improved and my style developed further I noticed that I couldn't fully tell your wedding story by only offering limited hours of coverage. Also, couples who booked me months in advance had a tough time knowing exactly how many hours were ideal for them.
As you probably already know I am a candid style wedding photographer. I don't pose or use a lot of lighting. I like to capture what's in front of me naturally, but properly. I pay attention to the available light, composition and the background on all my photos. And most of all I don't want to be in the way. ( I do pose for the formals though if you require them.)
Because of this documentary style it stands out even more when I have a full story to tell. This means that the getting ready photos and the fun moments in-between the main parts are just as important to me. I am very big on details and moments. To me these things add to the story and help build transitions from one part of the wedding day to the next. And often times they can show the true spirit of the day.
By offering full day coverage to you and your fiancé you no longer have to keep an eye on the clock or feel rushed to fit everything in the time agreed upon. For example, maybe we had to rush the formals because the ceremony ran a little long. We can put some time aside later in the day to get some more done without wondering if we'll have enough time.
Some weddings go as planned, a few, while others run a little long. That is not a problem at all. I will stay as long as needed to capture the full story of the day.
I am also offering full day coverage to keep things as simple as possible. So now you know you have me around for the whole day so you can focus other items important to you.
Another great thing about my full day coverage is that it comes with a very nice Leather Lay-flat Album. So you don't need to worry about the cost of adding an album. These are very good quality, and are built to last a lifetime.
Remember that your album is your wedding story! And I am so excited to be able to capture it and be able to deliver it to you in this form!
