A Wedding Planning Quickie – Give Yourself Enough Time

Saturday, January 20, 2018
The biggest wedding planning mistake I see brides make is not having enough time to get those swoon worthy images.  When mapping out your wedding day, draw up a timeline and ask your wedding photographer if you realistically can do all the things you want to do.  Chances are if you hired a season pro, they’ll be able to tell you right away if your expectations are realistic, and if they’re not, they can work with you to come up a solution that works.

If the timing of things is tight, pick a closer photo location for your portraits.  Want photos at the salon and the getting ready room at the manor house; you might have to stretch your budget for an extra hour or two.  Want sunset photos on the rooftop over looking the city – plan ahead for it!

The most important thing to remember is that photography is a process and to get the best out of your images, you want to give your photographer time to take it all in and find inspiration! 

One of the worst things you can do on your wedding day is rush! You’ll spend countless hours planning your perfect wedding day, you should be able to relax and enjoy the day you worked so hard on! So be sure to give yourself enough time!

Meghan & Adam - A Downtown Engagement

"and suddenly, all the love songs were about you"

Had so much fun wandering around the Flats with these two for their engagement session!! We had the most amazing early morning winter light that bathed all the old and worn industrial structures in soft shades of gold.

Chasing Light 2017

Monday, January 1, 2018
Chasing light has been an annual tradition on this blog for the last five (or maybe it’s six) years now.  I feel as we bid the year goodbye, it’s good to look back and relive all the little everyday moments that make up our daily life.

It is really easy to loose oneself in the day-to-day routine – the tasks that need our attention, the errands that need ran, the never-ending pile of laundry, but life is so much more than that stuff; it’s coffee with friends, it’s picnics in the summer-time, it’s road trips and dinner parties; it’s morning snuggles and story time with our daughter. 

What I love so much about photography is capturing all those moments – the moments when most people wouldn’t think to pause, and grab a camera.  When you really stop to think about it, photography is almost magic.  A moment of time is captured and frozen forever. We can literally look back into our past and see all the moments that make up our life.  That’s pretty freakin’ cool.

I always tell, well everyone honestly, take photos – print photos; get a camera, and learn to see in the language of photography.

Capture those little fleeting moments and savor the story of your own life.

Here’s to another year spent chasing light.
