We shot this garter toss at a recent wedding Candice and I photographed. It's always satisfying, after checking the LCD on the back of the camera, to confirm that we did indeed capture the garter, or flowers, in flight. Not always the easiest thing to do!

Wedding receptions are always fun, everyone's in a great mood, and usually the party is on! Getting great reception pictures, on the other hand, can sometimes be a lot of work. As previously mentioned in another post, sometimes the location of the reception poses a few photographic problems. Poor lighting is probably the biggest concern for most wedding photographers and definitely a challenge. It tests our skills as photographers to make sure we get a nice selection of reception pictures for the bridal couples album.

As promised in our last post it's time for another in the series of photography tips for the bride and groom to consider while they're planning their wedding photography.

Tip #2 - The Gown and Other Details...

Most brides spend years dreaming of their wedding dress. Capturing the essence of the gown can be a task of its own.

Candice definitely has the eye for "the shot" and is very attentive to detail. Here is a quote from an email we received recently from a bride whose wedding we photographed:

"I was very happy that I chose Wyman Gallery Photography for Adam and my wedding. Candice's creativity and eye for a great shot really impressed us and made our day special....please tell her."

It's great to hear back from our clients that we did a good job, and it's especially nice when they're complimenting your daughter!

We pride ourselves in paying attention to details. It ensures the bride, groom and all others are perfect in every photo.

When you're planning your wedding photography don't forget to bring extra makeup, combs and brushes for the formal pictures.

There's a reason television and movie stars never appear in front of the camera without the assistance of makeup! It just looks nicer.

Hey everyone, that's it for me today. I hope you have a great Easter weekend and we'll talk to you soon - Craig
