Paying more attention to detail

I have noticed this year, a change in how I shoot weddings. I told myself at the end of last year I needed to give more, and be better.  I trust myself more when shooting, and I pay more attention to details. Before I would take a few shots of everything, cake, shoes, dress bouquet, BUT I never trusted myself to do some more with, or take creative shots. In the back of my mind I was always thinking, what if they don't like my vision. This was something I think we all have to get over, as a wedding day can be very stressful and exhausting.....I LOVE every minute of excitement during a wedding.

We had a lot of rain in May in VA. One of my May weddings was very planned out. I had met with the bride and groom two weeks prior to the wedding to plan out every place we would be taking family pictures, wedding party pictures, and just the bride and groom. I like to keep my picture taking time to a minimum after the ceremony, so it is always great when you have brides that will do a walk through of the venue at the same time of the ceremony days prior. As the wedding day came, it was pouring rain in the morning. On my way to the venue the rain had stopped and it was just an over cast, which is a photographers dream for lighting. Everything was looking GREAT, once she put the dress on it begin raining again. Sadly to say we were unable to take the bride and groom and wedding party image that we had planned out. So in the event of this happening, I do offer the bride and groom a private session to come back to the venue on another day to get the images that they wanted. With my added time I was able to get more detailed shots, and I must say I am loving this new style. I have found myself coming more into my style in every aspect of my work. It has been 4 years in  the making, but so worth it in trusting myself, and having awesome clients that trust me as well.

Here are a few of the detailed shot from this rainy May wedding.

In LOVE with glittery heels!!!
