Cody Hunter Photography + PV Takeover + Day 2

Stephen Wood

@codyhunterphotography Takeover Day 2: Catching moments . . . I think what I've learned most is to rarely remove my camera from my eye. I will often say goofy things to create laughter and fun between a couple in the "in-between" shots. They tend to be more relaxed then and these are often the best moments—the time to catch them "off guard" and more natural. My heart, as a visual storyteller of weddings, is to see the unseen. To give my couples a gallery of beautiful surprises—of moments often fleeting, and often missed or forgotten that day, for them to cherish . . . like laughter as you fall off your getaway car. 😊

@codyhunterphotography Takeover Day 2: More on catching moments . . . While I shoot 90% of my weddings on my Contax, I always have my Canon 1V loaded and ready to fill in the gaps. I primarily use the 1V for fast situations like ceremony time. After some ill-planned and missed moments where I wanted to kick myself later, I am now super aware of how many frames I have left on my Contax before the ceremony starts and have a few loaded inserts ready to go, too. Even if I have to burn a few last photos on the Contax to prepare, I will. I shot this image on the 1V at one of my favorite weddings of my career in Provence, France this summer. When the scans came back, I was so happy about THIS moment right here—and could not wait to give it to my couple!

@codyhunterphotography Takeover Day 2: To finish today on catching moments . . . I gotta admit, sometimes it's hard—sometimes you get behind on your timeline and feel rushed, sometimes your couple isn't very comfortable in front of the camera and so on. I know it's my job, then, to create an environment where genuine moments can unfold. I never want contrived, but natural—so I simply ask for it from my couple, from a guest, etc. I politely ask a guest to grab an appetizer while I "catch" it, or ask my couple to simply snuggle or walk hand-in-hand. Nothing fancy, but a way to create and catch natural moments in a quick way with minimal input from me and no forced posing.
