For 2014 I have introduced a new wedding package.
I'm excited to introduce it as it has been a couple years in the making. The idea of offering a full day of coverage vs a set time frame has always been there, but I wanted to put something together that made sense.
THE CLASSIC is a full day of coverage from bridal prep to the last dance. The idea for The Classic came about with my earliest memories of great photos and reading national geographic magazines as a child. To this day I find those images inspiring. These are photos that are mostly black and white, but also some in color with really no editing. Reporters and travel photographers would capture the world as it happened. The photos told stories or shared a moment.
The last couple years I've been improving my way of taking photos and have found I enjoy doing more and more black and white photos. Something about them really speaks to me. So from my earliest photos to my most recent you will see that I have transitioned from almost 20% black and white to almost 50% black and white photos for weddings.
The Classic aims to bring out some stunning black and white images with some awesome color photos to complement them. Generally the ratio will be about 50/50, but that percentage can go either way depending on the client. With a full day of coverage by two photographers you will get a wide assortment of photos to remember your special day by.
My documentary style:
The Classic is made more timeless with my documentary style of photography. This means that I observe and walk around almost like a guest. I capture candids, a variety of angles and capture the event as a whole. Not only the wedding couple. This also means that I don't spend much time posing or drawn out formal photo sessions. I do believe that these are important and a must at most weddings, but capturing the flow and mood of the day is what I aim for. I won't get in the way, or tell people to stand and pose for me. Myself and the second photographer are there to document the wedding from start to finish.
What kind of gear I use:
I'm made a recent switch to the Fujifilm system. These cameras are smaller than large DSLR cameras. They are discrete and relatively quiet as well. The image quality is outstanding and it allows me to document the wedding day without bringing too much attention to myself. As you can see from the photo below these cameras look like old film cameras. I know looks are one thing (I've always like the look and feel of film cameras) but these cameras really get the job done. They really say, enjoy your day and don't worry about the guy with the camera. Also, these take fantastic black and white photos, so that doesn't hurt either.
Who The Classic is for:
The Classic is for the couple who wants a full day of coverage, an album and a large canvas to display on their wall. They want the getting ready photos of both the bride and the groom. They want the arrival, the ceremony and the celebrating of the newlyweds. They want to be able to enjoy the reception without having to be interrupted halfway as the photographers are packing up ready to leave. After the wedding they can expect a custom DVD of their special day and a 25 page Leather Album, and a 20x30 Canvas! It really is Classic!
