@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 2: First looks can be stressful as a photographer. You want these images to look natural, yet we always have to set them up and give instruction. I find it very helpful to remind my clients to stop and take in the moment before we start shooting. This usually helps my clients forget we are there and to naturally embrace each other and be present. This usually helps my clients forget I’m even there, allowing them to naturally embrace each other and to simply be present in the moment.

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 2: This wedding was one of the most beautiful winter weddings I have had the pleasure of participating in. I was super pleased with this capture and how @photovisionprints scanned it. Unfortunately, the window was split into two horizontal panes, and the top of one pane went straight through the bride’s head. This is a rare example of when I had to do some heavy retouching in order to keep the image simple and clean; keeping the focus on the bride. Craft the image the best you can in camera. Always. But when you can’t, there’s Photoshop.

@whenhefoundher Takeover Day 2: As wedding photographers, our job can become incredibly repetitive. It’s so easy to slip into autopilot and shoot something we know our clients will love — but we might not be as proud of. One thing that has helped me from getting into creative ruts is to place myself in my client's shoes—take a few minutes to imagine all the emotions they might be feeling, and how you could translate those into unique captures. The image above is from an engagement session. I wanted to capture the anticipation of this new season of their lives . . . all the joy and freedom that comes with finding your soulmate.
