The Pre-Ceremony

The Bride Getting Ready On Her Wedding DaySet in beautiful Monterey, California, Alyssa takes a few moments to freshen up before her big day.

As I often tell brides and grooms, a great wedding photographer captures the best moments of a wedding day.  There are the obvious ones like the first kiss or the first look but there are many more.  More than anyone can remember if they don't attend weddings as many as I do.  Some of my many favorite moments of a wedding day come with the few hours before the wedding ceremony.  I call this the pre-ceremony, the moments before the wedding.  A wedding day wouldn't be official without a professional wedding photographer present who anticipate and look for those special moments.  As I enter the room, the pre-ceremonial events are already happening.  They may have mimosas and fruit already passed along, some music filling the air and everyone excited to see me!  Instantaneously I already have a camera in hand and showing off some of the photos I have taken.  I find it beneficial to show my brides and family and friends the photos I take throughout the day as it shows my creativity on their wedding day but also get to show off a few of my instant favorites.  My clients are instantly excited and are now more confident as they see themselves in the camera.

At the end of the wedding day, everyone is excited to see the wedding photos from start to end.  It's a great experience to photograph these moments and I take great humility when I have the opportunity to capture them.  The feedback I get from the brides and grooms and their guests are positive and complimentary.  With all this comes a great experience of hiring a professional and seasoned wedding photographer such as myself.

It would be my pleasure and honor to be your professional wedding photographer.  Please email me at [email protected] to book your wedding in 2015 and 2016!
