Eyes Are Important in Memorable Photography

December 18, 2020  •  Leave a Comment

Eyes Are Important for Memorable Photos

"Eyes are the window to your soul," Shakespeare wrote long ago. In our photography, we often focus on the eyes for this very reason. Eyes communicate feelings for which people have no words. The joy of finding a soulmate with which to share your life, the realization of how much your family and friends love you, the wonder of how you came to be in this place and this moment of life.

Weddings are interesting events in that the bride and groom are contemplating the big step they're taking while surrounded by all kinds of activity.  We find it's good to get them away from the buzz for some quiet moments.  Many couples, when planning their wedding photography, want dozens of photos of activities, family, and friends. However, the heart of the day and the commitment being made are often found in the contemplative photos.  Leave time in your photography schedule for reflection! After the big day is over, and you're quietly looking at your pictures, you'll be happy that you did.

Home Weddings – How to Set Up for Photography

Home Weddings – How to Set Up for Photography

If you feel it’s best to have a small wedding at home during the pandemic, don’t be disappointed, be creative and innovative!  Most couples look at Instagram, other online sources, or magazines for ideas on how to arrange a home for a wedding. Before you look at other people’s ideas, try to come up with your own. You may be more creative than you think. As you walk through the home and grounds in which the wedding will be held, think first of what might work, instead of what won’t work. Look with fresh eyes of possibility. That’s what we do at Daniel Photo Pro, we look for what’s possible rather than what appears to be.

For compelling photographs, it’s better to concentrate on small spaces within the venue where different types of photos can be taken, rather than trying to make a whole room or a whole house look perfect. A home wedding is naturally going to be more intimate, so take advantage of that and look for spots indoors or out where you can have a variety of photos. You can make a wedding seem much larger by shooting photos in mini settings within the space.  Walk around with your smartphone and shoot lots of potential spots where a photo could be set up.  When you see how a space looks in a photo, you can envision what type of decorations, plants, flowers, or artwork might transform or enhance it for a wedding photo. 

Preparing a home for a wedding often results in meaningful home improvements. It’s a way to have an incredibly personal, intimate, unique, and joyful wedding.

Bodas en casa: cómo preparar la fotografía

Bodas en casa: cómo preparar la fotografía

            Si cree que es mejor celebrar una pequeña boda en casa durante la pandemia, no se decepcione, sea creativo e innovador. La mayoría de las parejas buscan ideas sobre cómo organizar una casa para una boda en Instagram, otras fuentes en línea o revistas. Antes de analizar las ideas de otras personas, intente crear las suyas propias. Puede que seas más creativo de lo que crees. Mientras recorre la casa y los terrenos en los que se celebrará la boda, piense primero en lo que podría funcionar, en lugar de lo que no funcionará. Mire con ojos frescos de posibilidad. Eso es lo que hacemos en Daniel Photo Pro, buscamos lo que es posible en lugar de lo que parece ser.

Para fotografías atractivas, es mejor concentrarse en espacios pequeños dentro del lugar donde se pueden tomar diferentes tipos de fotos, en lugar de tratar de hacer que toda una habitación o una casa se vean perfecta. Una boda en casa naturalmente será más íntima, así que aproveche eso y busque lugares adentro o afuera donde pueda tener una variedad de fotos. Puede hacer que una boda parezca mucho más grande tomando fotos en mini configuraciones dentro del espacio. Camine con su teléfono inteligente y capture muchos lugares potenciales donde se podría configurar una foto. Cuando vea cómo se ve un espacio en una foto, puede imaginar qué tipo de decoraciones, plantas, flores u obras de arte podrían transformarlo o mejorarlo para una foto de boda.

Piense en una boda de Navidad. ¡No es demasiado tarde!

En estos tiempos locos de covid, muchas de nuestras viejas ideas están cayendo en el camino. ¡Como el hecho de que las bodas deben planificarse con meses o años de antelación!

La mayoría de las bodas son más pequeñas en estos días y los proveedores de bodas no están tan ocupados, por lo que es un buen momento para reservar una boda. Si es en cualquier momento durante el mes de diciembre, los colores vibrantes y gloriosos de la Navidad se pueden usar para calentar a todos.

Los rojos y verdes de todos los tonos, junto con el plateado o el dorado, crean una sensación de buen humor. ¡Todos necesitamos buen ánimo estos días!

Estas son algunas de las fantásticas fotos navideñas de Daniel Photo Pro para estimular tu imaginación. Contáctenos para fotos de compromiso o boda en el alegre mes de diciembre. ¡Salud!

Think About a Christmas Wedding

Think About A Christmas Wedding. It's Not Too Late!

In these crazy covid times, lots of our old ideas are falling to the wayside. Like the fact that weddings need to be planned months or years out! Most weddings are smaller these days and wedding vendors are not as busy, so it’s a great time to book a wedding. If it’s any time during the month of December, the vibrant, glorious colors of Christmas can be used to warm everyone up. Reds and greens of all hues, along with silver or gold, create such a feeling of good cheer. We all need good cheer these days! Here are a few of Daniel Photo Pro’s whimsical Christmas-y photos to stir your imagination. Contact us for engagement or wedding photos in the merry month of December.  Cheers!

 Fotos de boda en la orilla del lago Erie

Durante todo el año, desde el amanecer hasta el atardecer, nuestro magnífico Great Lake Erie ofrece un maravilloso fondo para fotos de bodas y compromisos. Incluso cuando hace frío y hielo en invierno, sigue siendo muy hermoso. La enorme extensión del lago, los colores siempre cambiantes del cielo y el agua, la abundancia de aves y vida silvestre, la arena y las playas rocosas se combinan para crear una sensación de eternidad, ¡que es la forma en que quieres que sea tu amor! Las fotos tomadas en el lago siempre tienen una sensación de libertad, alegría y deleite. Entonces, naturalmente, las parejas sonríen mucho. La formalidad del atuendo de boda yuxtapuesto con la naturaleza salvaje revela un lado de la pareja enamorada que es diferente a las otras fotos. Por supuesto, en una boda, desea muchas fotos de su amada familia y amigos, la ceremonia y la verdadera importancia de todo, pero agregar fotos de la playa al plan fotográfico siempre funciona sorprendentemente bien.

Big Sky, Big Water, Big Love - Wedding Photos on the Lake Erie Shore

Year-round, from sunrise to sunset, our magnificent Great Lake Erie provides a marvelous background for wedding and engagement photos. Even when it’s cold and icy in winter, it’s still so very beautiful. The huge expanse of the lake, the ever-changing colors of sky and water, the abundance of birds and wildlife, the sandy and the rocky beaches combine to create a feeling of eternity, which is the way you want your love to be!

Photos taken at the lake always have a feeling of freedom, joy and delight about them. So naturally, couples smile a lot. The formality of wedding attire juxtaposed with wild nature reveals a side of the couple in love that is unlike the other photos. Of course, in a wedding, you want lots of photos of your beloved family and friends, the ceremony and the true importance of it all, but adding beach photos to the photography plan always works out surprisingly well.
