While photography is an important part of your wedding, it's only one aspect of your whole day. Weddings are about celebrating your commitment and the merging of two families together into a new one. You have guests coming from around the world to be there on the day, and I want you to have plenty of time to see everyone.
Ideally, I like to steal couples for their portraits during small portions of time during the course of a wedding day. That way your guests won't notice that you're gone for too long, and then I can take advantage of the changes in weather, light and location as the day moves on. I love it when I can steal a few minutes in the church while your guests are queuing up for confetti, or a few minutes while your guests are finding their seats for the meal.
Your wedding shouldn’t revolve around photography but photography should revolve around the moments of your day.
