Jake + Heather Beerman + PV Takeover + Day 3

PhotoVision Team

@heathergracebeerman + @jakestephenbeerman #pvtakeover Day 3: We’re often asking ourselves, “How can we combine our eye for artistry with genuine storytelling to craft images that are less about us as artists and more about the relationships of our couples?” When we’re looking for THOSE images to capture, we’re serving our clients the best we can and our work is, in turn, the best it can be. We really like to photograph our couples having a moment together when they don't think the camera is on them. Now, obviously this can be a hard thing to capture in perfect light in a perfect setting because it's often unplanned—but what if you could *kinda* plan it? Heather snapped this image on the way to sunset portraits with our couple. She told them to pause and hang out for a moment while she grabbed something in her bag, and after a few seconds, they naturally fell into this sweet embrace and began chatting. THESE are the in-between moments that showcase your couple’s true essence in the most tangible way.

@heathergracebeerman + @jakestephenbeerman #pvtakeover Day 3: Including the environment in your images is the GLUE to your storyline. If you take a few steps back further than you’re used to, you might begin to see things in your frame you didn't realize were essential to capturing the entirety of the atmosphere. Like how grand the tree is here this couple is dancing beneath. *Disclaimer:* Photographers usually have a tendency to shoot either wide or tight. We tend to shoot a bit tighter, so we have to consciously remind ourselves to back up and shoot wider. If you’re the opposite, and are more drawn to wider, scenic shots, challenge yourself to shoot the environment a bit tighter. If you REALLY want to challenge yourself, throw on a #Hoya filter and get some macro details of the environment around you.

Jake + Heather Beerman + PV Takeover + Day 2

PhotoVision Team

@heathergracebeerman + @jakestephenbeerman #pvtakeover Day 2: Let's talk about life in images. This is another way we approach shooting a wedding in order to craft a storyline filled with genuine emotion. Keeping our subjects moving is a conscious method we like to use to add life and momentum to our images and the overall story. There are still times during a session where we have to remind ourselves to grab a few traditional portraits of the couple looking directly into the camera, because it’s just so not what we do naturally! We like to look for the emotions and interactions that feel the most unposed and real. Brainstorm some directions you can give to your subjects to allow them to move a bit. You might be amazed at the natural embraces they fall into on their own after having them move and laugh together!

@heathergracebeerman + @jakestephenbeerman #pvtakeover Day 2: Continuing with our approach of shooting a wedding day to tell a story with the details, let's talk about reception details. One of our preferred ways to hone in on table details, in addition to overheads, is to get as close to even with the table as we can. If you try this framing, you’ll notice pretty quickly that it typically gives you ONE focal point to hone in on with a shallow depth of field dropping off behind your focus. It’s a great way to highlight the details your couples chose to include at their reception. These images turn out beautifully minimal and soft, pairing perfectly with your overheads and full table shots to complete the narrative of their dinner hour.
