Note from the Photographer:

This is YOUR special day. You are the boss. I will come any time you like on your wedding day & take all the pictures you want!

Be aware that photographic coverage can start hours before the actual ceremony. It is possible to begin elsewhere at a favorite location, creating formal or casual poses with the bride & groom.

Back at the wedding site, & still before the ceremony, we could explore the grounds, if appropriate, & capture the setting. This is an excellent time to get various combinations of the wedding party.  More shots taken before the ceremony reduces the time away from your reception & guests, especially if the guests are waiting for the newlyweds before the merriment officially begins.

Many times, a traditional approach will not allow the groom to see the bride at all before the ceremony. This is okay too. I can start with capturing the preparation, plus the final result of the groomsmen & bridesmaids, separately. Then, most or all formal photos would be afterward. This could involve elaborate setups, or just a few simple documenting images, however much you desire.

Some couples have an exact idea of what they want in photographic coverage: formal vs. casual, pre- vs. post-ceremony, specific poses & groupings. If you have a precise concept, let me know. I am capable, & will do my best, to fulfill your dream. If you simply want your wedding completely documented, with no particulars arranged, I can do that too.

If you are open to suggestions, my experience will offer a number of ways of handling the photography.

Let’s talk. We are able to discuss the possibilities, & plan the course of action tightly, or leave it open to the natural flow of the special day.

Your day, your choices, your photos!

Thank you,
Wes Nelms
