How to Have a Happy Wedding

Happy people…happy photographer…happy bride! Happiness will shine through your wedding pictures. Almost every one of all ages looks better with a smile on their face. That’s why babies coo and wiggle their arms and legs when people look down at them smiling. Humans are wired to respond to smiles. Weddings are typically happy occasions when there is a lot of smiling so the photography turns out well. However, if the bride is too stressed, no one is happy.  More than anything else, a happy bride means beautiful pictures. So plan well and on your special day, let it all go and smile!

How to Have a Great First Kiss Photo

The first kiss of the newly minted husband and wife is important to nearly all couples, yet it usually occurs in an awkward situation. So, what’s the solution? If only for the purpose of the photo, do the first kiss in a private setting. Make it a stress-free first kiss, so all the emotion and joy you feel is present. It’s okay to do two first kisses – one for the audience – and one for the photo.

May it be the first of a million kisses you will give to one another over a long and joyful marriage.

How to Be Content with a Small Wedding Party

Wedding expenses are no small matter. Being part of someone else’s wedding party can be expensive too. Today there are so many facets of a wedding: engagement party, bachelor party, bachelorette party, destination travel costs, gowns, clothing, and of course…the gift!

The average cost of being a bridesmaid ranges from $1200 to $2000 these days. Sometimes all the expense infringes on friendship. The more people in the wedding, the more costly it will be. Some brides and grooms now choose to have one attendant each, and they don’t have to be the same sex.  A bride can have her brother as attendant, a groom his sister, etc.

If it is important to you and your fiancé that the wedding include a shared meal, then cutting down on the wedding party expenses can be a way to find funds for food.

Wedding traditions evolve and change. Each couple is free to create their own experience. Just to be sure to photograph it all for your future generations!
