The Wedding Planner and Wedding Photographer Are With You Throughout Your Wedding Day

If you are planning a wedding, keep in mind, wedding planners are vital as you have many decisions to make and will be working with a lot of vendors who are responsible for bringing your vision to life.  I have been a wedding photographer for many years and have seen all types of weddings: large and small, simple and refined, extravagant and elegant.  Regardless of the wedding, the amount of planning and effort remains the same.  For this reason, a wedding planner is so important.  They play an integral role in both the planning phase as well as making sure that every detail on your wedding day runs smoothly and efficiently.  From the vendor selection to the most subtle details, the wedding planner is vital and has you covered.  There are nuances and subtle details that the wedding planner is aware of and equipped to handle so that you can enjoy every moment of your day.  A realistic timeline is the foundation and while it seems simple enough, a wedding planner truly knows how to make things come together.  It begins early in the day with the bride and bridesmaids working with the makeup artist and hair stylists, then ensuring the guys are getting into their tuxes at the proper time complete with pinning boutonnieres on each other.  As a wedding photographer, I have seen it all and have jumped in to help many groomsmen with their ties and boutonnieres. 

Then there is coordinating with the florist, venue, cake designer, caterer, DJ or entertainment, and lead wedding photographer.  It takes a well organized and calm individual to make sure all of these responsibilities come together at the proper time.  As the bride should not have to worry about the coordination of these individuals.  If you think about it, the wedding planner and wedding photographer spend the most time with you on your wedding day.  They are there from start to finish, from the bride’s “getting ready” images to the send off, these two individuals are there to make sure things run smoothly and every moment is captured respectively.  I have had the privilege of working with several awesome wedding planners and one the comes to mind is  Edelina Rose, owner of  Event Details by Edelina.  She is a great example of someone who makes sure everything comes together as planned.  I have a great deal of respect for her professionalism and work ethic.

The reason I enjoy being a wedding photographer so much is the opportunity to meet and work with couples who are planning their special day and using my creativity to document the fun, emotion, and details that make each wedding so different and unique.  My team and I are highly engaged and work with you to ensure your day is documented not just for social media but for the memories you will look back on in remembering your day.  One thing is for sure, the uniqueness of your wedding will be captured in images.  I get to know the wedding party and even have had a father of the groom take a selfy of me for a little fun during the action.  My number one goal is to exceed your expectations, plain and simple.
