One of the things that I enjoy shooting at weddings is the detail shots, to me the small details is what makes each wedding unique for each couple. I know that when I was planning my wedding I spend a lot of time choosing details that will tie the way I wanted my wedding to feel and look together. Shooting details also let me be a little more creative, I like to include backgrounds or elements that will show the overall feel of the wedding. The first thing I shoot when I get to the bride’s getting ready room is the her details. This usually includes her dress, her shoes, her veil, jewelry, and flowers.
One of my favorite detail shots that I love shooting is the wedding dress. The wedding dress is so important to the bride and I love to make portraits that will showcase the importance of it.
Chrissy got married at The Montauk Yacht Club, She based her wedding theme around the Lighthouse and I really wanted to include that elements when I shot her dress, so for her dress portrait I made sure to include the lighthouse in the background.
Michelle got married at the Allegria Hotel and I wanted to make sure that her beach theme was included in her dress portraits so I made sure that the beach was visible in her dress shot.
For Marvet’s wedding the hotel she was getting ready had a lot of cool background and I soon as I saw the cool pattern wall I knew that were I wanted to shoot her wedding dress shot.
For my ring shots I try to make them unique to the couples, ring shots can be really cool to shoot!
When it comes to other detail shots, such as shoes, jewelry and flowers I try to stylized them as if am shooting them for a magazine ad.
I know my brides put a lot of work into making their wedding day perfect down to the last detail and it’s my job to show off her hard work : )
