Your Bridal Party – Part 3 – Unique Photo Ideas

Happy Monday!

The last of our bridal party posts is dedicated to how Unveiled has refined photographing some of the most important people in your life.

First, we ask our clients what their location preferences are. Sometimes the answers are very general, such as preferring a natural setting or downtown Kingston. Other preferences narrow location proximity; for instance, being close to the reception venue is important to the couple.

Second, we help guide our clients’ location choices by asking how many are in the bridal party as some locations in Kingston are more conducive to arranging  a larger party.  Or we might ask the couple if they are interested in shooting at a location we have never been to before, thus offering to them a unique wedding portfolio.

Third, we offer guidance by occasionally scoping out an area before the wedding day. Perhaps a location is not as pretty as we had hoped, with flowers and trees being late to bloom.  Or maybe the time of day will be too bright and sunny to shoot, making for washed out photos and squinting eyes.

Lastly, each weekend we do our absolute best, to look at a popular location differently, finding corners and angles we hadn’t thought of before, alleyways we have not had time to walk through in the past, or arranging the bride and groom and attendants differently on a set of stairs. Each weekend we try to use lighting in a dramatic way, height more effectively, and architecture more fashionably. Cues from the environment are taken including tree lines, rock formations, or natural colours.

Know that we are very willing to act upon ideas and requests because ultimately, we want our clients to be fully satisfied with their experience with Unveiled and pleased when viewing the the end product.

We hope you enjoy this next set of fun and unique bridal party pictures.

Your Bridal Party – Part 2

A common concern that brides and grooms have is how Unveiled will photograph their very large, or very small, bridal party?  We admit, photographing this part of the day takes much creative thought. Photographing our clients’ wedding day has to be approached as a new experience each weekend, so you can imagine the pressure in arranging groups of people in a unique way when you have twenty weddings to shoot!  Limitations due to weather, time restraint, and lost bridal party attendants can further add to the challenge.  But not to worry, we are always up for one!:)

Your Bridal Party – Part 1

Your bridal party will be  a mixture of past and present faces that you have had the good fortune to get to know over the years.  From childhood friends to current co-workers, you have personally invited each one to actively participate in the most important day of your life. There are many roles and responsibilities that these friends and family members will assume, including dress and suit/tux shopping, Jack and Jill planning, envelope stuffing, favour making, church and reception decorating – the list is expansive.  It is no wonder that on the day itself, the bride and groom are looking for fun and creative photo ops to unwind with their guys and gals.
