How did you get involved with weddings and events?

“One day, I just quit my full-time job because I wasn’t happy, purchased a camera and decided to be a wedding photographer. I took a few photography classes in college so I knew it was something I could do. A few days later, I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding as a second photographer and loved it.”

 How long have you been a wedding photographer?

“8 years.” 

What tips do you have for brides just starting to plan their wedding?
“Be realistic with your wedding timeline/schedule when planning your day. Everything usually takes longer than what you think and always leave a little extra time here and then just in case.”

 What are your favorite wedding trends this year?

“I love handwritten notes and gifts so one of my favorite trends its boudoir. Brides give a little black book album with sexy images of themselves to the groom the day of the wedding. I just love this and love their reaction more!”

 What do you feel is the most challenging thing about weddings?

Family photos. When family members weren’t told to be there for pictures.   

What’s a typical work-day looks like?

“Wake up, drink coffee while enjoying some time with my husband, emails/editing/shooting most week-days. After 3pm I get my kids from school, work is all done.”

Weekends are for my family unless I shoot weddings.

 Favorite 3 wedding venues?

Fabulous Wedding Photographer

Every bride needs wedding pictures, how about booking a fabulous wedding photographer?

If you live in Southern New England, look no further.  My oldest daughter’s wedding photographer, Hannah Rachael Colt, has hung out her own shingle. (You can get the full details of all Hannah offers by clicking on the link below)

She’s adorable as well as being talented (see photos above).  And there is little she WON’T do to get the perfect shot! 🙂  See below…

And a little about Hannah, in her own words:

 “Almost 10 years ago, I picked up my first camera. The leather was worn, and the strap was frayed, but it just felt right. With the help of my older sister, herself a professional photographer, I learned everything I could, and eventually transitioned from that old-fashioned film camera to a modern, digital Nikon.

Starting out in a demanding industry at the young age of 18 was exciting and eye opening. I was fortunate to work as a second shooter with other photographers, under whose guidance I was able to learn the fundamentals of traditional photography. I also began to develop my own perspective. Having learned the rules – like never shooting into the sun (I do that), or not climbing trees to get the shot (shhh… I do that too) – I have found that sometimes I like to break them, because the perfect shot isn’t necessarily head-on, or taken from ground level! And now the light flares and soft colors you see in my work have become my signature style.”

 

Above and below are are two of my favorite shots from, Kathleen’s wedding.  The photo above showcases my two younger girls helping KK with her wedding shoes.  And perhaps my favorite of all..the picture below.  I think one would be hard-pressed to find a more romantic shot.

How Will You Photo Your Rings?

You think you’ve planned it all?  Well, add “Think of a memorable, creative, ‘never-before seen’ photo idea for your wedding rings”.  Wedding Rings??? You ask.  Yes. It’s quite the thing.  If you’re planning a beach wedding, the top photo could be just what you’re looking for…if not…not so much…and then again…might you loose those gorgeous rings in the sand?… could happen!

The fork idea is cute…but why???  Not sure what the theme is, but I really think there should be one…although the “Mr./ Mrs.” works for me.

I rather like the next picture.  It’s romantic, and shows both rings off to good advantage.  The bride and groom’s fingers intertwined is very intimate.

The next picture is not original, as far as the ‘wedding ring photos’ are concerned.  In my research, I found several…But it’s cute, and if you enlarge the calendar, maybe it will be a way to remind your husband of your anniversary!

I LOVE the photo above.  It has all my favorite things: shoes, flowers… and jewelry – a can’t miss combo.  Maggie and Rob had some lovely photos of their rings.  Their photographer did a nice job, but they didn’t discuss it before hand.  If you really care, I suggest you think what about is special to the two of you, and try to incorporate that into a photo op.  Your wedding is a once in a life time event, make the most of it , and plan ahead.  Yes, yes, you have to micro manage – but you’ll be glad you did.  The photos will last forever.
