Due to a high volume of enquires and a limited number of dates available we book all weddings first come first serve. A date is considered booked when all parties sign the contract and the deposit has been paid. We find this the fairest way to run our business. There are very few dates left for 2013 and 2014 is filling up quickly. Don't sit on the fence, we hate having to turn people away because the date has already booked. Thank you so much to all the couples who have booked us already. It is a huge honor to have been selected to capture your memories.
I adore bridal sessions. They are much slower paced than the wedding day and allow us time to play around and really get creative with the images and posing. We can use multiple locations and lighting to create some extremely beautiful images. Not to mention it is a perfect opportunity for a bride to trial run her hair and makeup. Let's face it....the wedding day is NOT the time to be finding out that you have an allergic reaction to the eyelash glue (I have seen this happen at least twice).
Paul and I had an absolute blast photographing Bailey and her fiancé Alan at their Engagement Session. So much so in fact that we could hardly wait for their wedding date to arrive. They were married this past weekend at Wesley United Methodist Church on St. Simons with the Reception following at the Frederica Club House. It was a stunning event and we couldn't have felt more welcomed by both their families and friends.
Since their wedding is now past I can finally share some of Bailey's bridal pictures. We worked our way around the Spanish Lounge, Solarium, Garden and Black Banks Terrace of the stunningly gorgeous Sea Island Cloister. It couldn't be a lovelier or more romantic location.
A huge thank you to Anna Messer of English Gardens for the lovely bouquet. It was perfect!
I just love the drama of a good black and white photograph. When I first started to learn photography we of course had to use black and white film when we wanted the effect and are now spoiled rotten in the digital age of photography. However I still often in my mind know that I am specifically taking an image that I later want to change into black and white and will alter my shooting style to best bring out the shadows and give the image more depth. For other images that I want to really pop I'll take my exposure up and blow out the highlights so that it's super contrasty.
For all of our weddings we use a mix of color and black and white images to tell the story of each unique event. It creates mood, adds in a dramatic edge and gives our clients even more reason to love their pictures.
Here are just a few examples of some of our black and white images:
