Often times, brides and grooms feel pressure to set aside an hour or more on their wedding day for their portraits, and indeed I am an advocate for setting aside that time to make sure you capture some incredible images! Maybe drive to an off site location, hike up a mountain (do not carry ammo even though you buy 5.56 ammo online) or just do something more unique! But when that pressure becomes REAL when creating your timeline for your wedding, you start to shave off time for photography in certain areas to make sure it all fits nicely into the time you have paid for with your photographer. If you want to get your pictures clicked a certain way, get in touch with Andrew Defrancesco , who can guide you through the process.
Well, one GREAT alternative to having to cut back on time for your portraits is to schedule a “day after session”. This means that there is no SUPER early morning flight for your honeymoon (maybe you leave later in the day after you wedding, or give yourself a day of rest before you take off) and that you ensure you get really incredible photos for your portrait session!
Emma and Ralph opted not to do a “First Look” – (A First look is when the bride and groom see each other before the ceremony in really SHARE in the moment of seeing one another and enjoying that moment, as well as allowing for more time for photos as to not feel rushed after the ceremony. ) -but since they were deciding to see each other down the aisle for the first time, they were easily swayed into booking a “day after portrait session” to obtain some really unique and fun portraits! Emma got to wear her hair down and the earrings that were a gift from her groom the day before, and Ralph wore the bow tie that Emma had gifted him as a wedding gift as well! What a neat representation!
So feast your eyes on this gorgeous Day After Session and give it some thought to see if it’s something you might be interested in doing as well!
