Modern LDS Wedding Photographer

You’ve probably seen the traditional wedding photography more often than you would like to admit. It’s usually a few poses of people standing up together in a group. The typical bride and groom poses are so common you could probably list them off the top of your head at this very moment.

The group picture is fine as it shows everyone all together displaying the beautiful array of style and color of the wedding party. To me the best wedding photography is taken by a photographer who relates well with people in conversation. This type of photographer has a way of capturing the essence of the people. By that I mean even though the people may pose, this photographer brings a relaxed energy that allows the poses to look and feel natural.

Best Utah wedding photography captures the loving smile on the mother’s face as she looks at her son in his last moments of single life. There is an intuitive sense of noticing subtle moments and capturing those moments for life.

Black and White Photography In 

Digital photography in black and white is often more valued than color. There is a notable depth to black and white photography that leaves some imagination to the viewer. It’s also a great opportunity to be taken back in time momentarily to the days when life was more simple and imagination ruled the day. Great black and white photography requires a set of unique skills to make it outstanding just as color does.

Variety is the spice of life so the best wedding photography will include both black and white photography and color; digital photography and film.

There is nothing in business, even in the photography business that will sell itself. To be aware of this fact is critical to starting a photography business.

In order to have a photography business that is successful and that will grow you need to have a niche. You need to know what niche you intend to offer and how to sell the benefits of this niche to your customers.

Traditional Wedding Photographer

Pre Wedding Photos

I always get the question asked, what should I wear? So I thought I'd write an article to help those starting out in hopes that it will help you if the same questions are asked. Or if you are getting your pictures taken it may help you not have to ask... So here are a few of my ideas.

The biggest thing about photographing people is the relationship you have with each other. If anyone is uncomfortable it's going to show in the pictures so begin with building a relationship. If you are having your picture taken you need to feel comfortable in what you are wearing so choose wisely.

Think about layering your clothes. Contrast is key!

Wear something you love and feels good inside and out.

Dress up not down but be comfortable. You can choose to wear a T-Shirt but will you regret it in a few weeks?

If it's an engagement shoot don't try to match. Go with different shades and go with a complementary style.

Patterns are generally a no-no. Most shoots happen outdoors and if the photographer knows what they are doing they will pull textures from the background. It creates a business in the photo if you do both!

Darker colors are slimming and they really are easier to photograph. The lighter the colors the more light it attracts.

Wear shoes that make you feel good. Make sure you love them. Make sure they are comfortable and easy to walk in. If you absolutely need to bring the brand new heels you just bought bring extra shoes to walk in. It really is all about enjoying the time and being comfortable.

Dress for the season. If its freezing outside its tough to look warm and happy in shorts... But be comfortable in what you choose. You will reflect what you are feeling.

If you are bringing a child or a pet its best to have an extra person with you. It's important to have the ability to have someone watching the pet or child when you are being photographed with out them. Bring someone you trust. That way you can still smile relaxed and comfortable with out worry.

If you have anything that you want the photographer to avoid (tattoos, scars, etc.) its best to tell them before the shoot. Everyone has this idea that PhotoShop is the fix all but its more work then you think. So help the photographer before hand to know what you want and don't want.

I hope this helped.
