I'm so grateful that I was asked to share my wedding pictures here with you as we talk about wedding photography. I will be honest -- I was VERY picky about my wedding photographers. I had no clue where to start looking, but I scoured local wedding forums and I even stalked a local wedding planner who featured fabulous weddings on her blog. I sent her an e-mail asking for help and guidance and to point me in the direction of a photographer who isn't going to be a fortune but will produce QUALITY images. She didn't send me one photographer... she sent me two! They are a duo, Caroline & Evan Photography, and happen to be husband and wife. What better way to remember your wedding then having another married couple join you with their fancy cameras?!
My bridesmaids carried paper pinwheels since flowers just weren't happening.
Our ceremony site was on the beach -- a public beach at that. I appreciated my photographers and their mission to make it look like it was just US out there. No photos were ruined with tacky tourists in the background. Everything looked perfect. Even the weather cooperated.
THE BIG MOMENT ;) They captured it quite well.
We threw shells into the ocean and made a wish.
Sure, there were posed shots...but those weren't our style.
That's more like it.
One thing that I loved about the photographers we selected were their attention to detail. That's what they prided themselves on. I really appreciated that. I loved all the close up photos of our decor, of my accessories, etc. I got married at the beginning of 2011 and it's amazing that here it is over a year later and I'm still impressed with my photography. It was a large portion of our budget -- in fact, it might have been the most expensive part! -- but it was so necessary. I'm grateful to have these images to look back on and appreciate in the years to come.
