What. A. Day. Today turned out absolutely perfect for David and Erin. The craziness of the day made it go by so fast. So many tears were shed - some of joy, some of sadness, most of laughter. I couldn't have been happier with those I was surround by this evening. Thank you David and Erin for allowing me to be a part of your big day.
Happy Wedding Day, David & Erin!!
WEDDING TIP WEDNESDAY SHARE YOUR TIMELINE: Email your time line a few days before your wedding day to your photographer, videographer, coordinator, bridal party, and immediate family. Make sure your friends and family know when and where to be ready for photos immediately after the ceremony. Chasing people down takes so much time! Want more tips?

Oh my, what a day! I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard throughout an entire day. Brian and Dani, I cannot thank you enough for allowing me to be a part of your big day. It was absolutely perfect! #hjpfam
I delivered this amazing wedding gallery last night! I love when I can get images back to clients within a few weeks. Don't wait months for your wedding images - my turn around is no more than three weeks. It's all a part of the HJP Experience! I know I want everything right now, and I think it's important to make that happen for my amazing couples. I hope Nate and Tovah love them as much as I do!
WEDDING TIP WEDNESDAY DO AN ENGAGEMENT SESSION: Even if your wedding photography package doesn't include an engagement shoot, you should do it! They are a great way to not only practice in front of the camera but to get to know your photographer before the wedding day. For most couples, the first 10 minutes or so can be awkward. It is awkward for them - usually because they have never been models - and awkward for the photographer because each couple moves together differently - some poses that work for certain couples do not work for others. Why not get that out of the way before your big day? I do love me some engagement sessions! Visit www.hollyjohnsphoto.com for more info on my engagement sessions or call me at 815-621-7530 to set your session date.
