Should I go with family formals on my wedding day?

Many wedding couples are torn between the traditional-style family portraits (also known as “Heritage Photographs”) and the natural unposed approach.  Our photography style is predominately a photojournalistic viewpoint and lovely couples seek us out specifically for that reason.  Although the typical family wedding portrait seems to be going by the wayside, it often ends up as part […]

Living in the Moment

“Couples choose unplugged weddings not just to ensure the quality of professional images. They also do it to keep guests engaged and focused on the ceremony itself.” I recently read an interesting article from CNN entitled: “When snap-happy guests go too far” all about photo-bombing at weddings.This hits very close to home for me as it is a very […]

Should You Avoid Posting Your Pro Photos on FB?

Does Facebook have the power to alter and sell your images? Social media is ever-changing – it is, for the most part, a photographer’s primary way of getting clients to ‘see’ us.  Until recently, Facebook has been one of my favorite social media posting resources, but as of late, that has certainly changed. Apparently, Facebook’s […] September 06
