Have you wondered how couples have time on their wedding day to get such beautiful images? Well, wonder no more because I’m about to tell you how. They didn’t take them on their wedding day, they did an After Wedding session.
On the wedding day things can run behind, the stylist takes too long, flowers don’t get delivered on time, or bridal party and family show up late. There are also all the formals with the family and bridal party that need to be done which can take a long time. After the ceremony on average I only get ten to fifteen minutes to shoot with the couple once the family shots are done. The couple are worn out and hungry by this time and are ready for the photography to end. A great solution to this problem is the After Wedding session.
You can do it the day right after your wedding while you still have the tux and the flowers or you can schedule it sometime after your honeymoon. It’s a great way to get some beautiful portraits of the two of you without having to worry about getting your dress dirty, keeping your guests waiting, or anything else you may be thinking of the day of your wedding. You can just relax and have some fun! You can go to some really cool places to get those great shots that you may not have time for the day of your wedding. Your photographer can take their time with you and create beautiful photographs that are artistic and different than the traditional wedding poses in a relaxed care free environment.

I just wanted to give a big thank you out to Sarah and Richard. They just became my newest clients and their wedding day is scheduled for October 17, 2009. They are getting married in Alexandria, VA. I hope I can find my way around. Thank goodness for GPS. Their reception is going to be at the Hilton which from on-line looks like a really cool place for a reception. I’m sure I’ll be posting images from their engagement session in the near future.
It was a perfect day for a wedding. The weather was beautiful! I got to use my new lenses which I was very excited about. Everything ran perfectly to plan, you couldn’t have asked for a better day.
Jodi and Casey were married at Central Chapel in Hedgesville WV, my sixth or seventh time shooting there, and their reception was at The Holiday Inn in Martinsburg WV. Jodi had a lovely lace dress she got at David’s Bridal. The men’s tuxedos were rented from J&B Bridals in Chambersburg PA. All of the beautiful flowers came from Depot Florist here in Martinsburg WV.
My newest clients just booked today! Sam and Deseree are getting married August 8, 2009 in Hagerstown MD. They seem like a really cool couple and I can’t wait to get to know them better. I’m sure I’ll be doing an engagement session with them very soon. Thank you again!
