The month of #November reminds us to take time to be more #grateful. Often times, we are stuck in our day to day to do's of just getting things done and we go in auto-tune. Working day in and day out, it sometimes get us out of touch with the present. We've got to remember to be grateful for the Journey we are all on and to be grateful for the now. Because after all, the present is all that we have. #practicegratitude
Who's excited for #thanksgiving!?! 🦃 It's officially one week away!!! There's nothing better than good food, friends, family and some shopping. 😄 #bspbrides
Brides spend days, weeks, and months searching for the perfect gown. The dress not only has to fit the bride like a glove, but it also sets the tone of the entire wedding day! It shows a part of who the bride is and it can even translate into the theme of the wedding day. Everything from the color of the dress, to the details of the fabric and the beading are all pieces of a story. The wedding dress is front and center with the bride on her big day and it must be photographed in a way that it shows it’s true essence! Over the years, we have learned ways to photograph the wedding dress to really make the details in the dress pop and let the dress shine in it’s own light. ------------ One thing that can completely change an image is the hanger! What the dress is hanging on makes a huge difference in images. Brides spend hundreds, even thousands of dollars on a dress! It can quickly change the way that thousand dollar dress looks when hanging on a plastic hanger. A monogrammed hanger tends to photograph more flawlessly than a plastic hanger.
There are a number of factors to take into account for a great image; lighting, composition and posing being some of them. While we can spend days explaining each one, today we are sharing one of them; posing! -------------- When you take your next image, try turning the body slightly at an angle to the camera so that your body is not square on to the lens . Shift your weight to the leg furthest away from the camera, and bend the leg closest to the lens to accentuate the body and make your curves more prominent. This will make the waist line appear even smaller. Objects closest to the camera lens can appear larger, known as foreshortening. When you shift your weight back, you make it so the waist is now farthest from the lens. Popping the leg closest to the camera creates curves and an even more slimming affect.

There's a theme to this week's blog posts and it's all about the bride!! An important piece of the wedding day that often gets missed are the bridal details. These are all the details that help tell the story of the day. We start every wedding photographing and styling the details of the bride. Looking back on these images allows a bride to remember every detail, big and small and it looks great in the wedding album! We often use the veil to style invitations, florals, jewelry and shoes. It gives a soft and clean background, while incorporating a beautiful piece in the images.
