To First Look or Not

As far as photography goes, to do a first look or not is one of the key decisions a couple has to make on their wedding day. Years ago this wasn’t even an option.

While the Olde Mill Inn has an awesome courtyard that is great for a wedding ceremony, the weather was way too cold for that to be a possibility. As a matter of fact the bride and groom from the get go planned the wedding to be indoors since odds were a late fall wedding would produce weather too cold to have...

Candids at Weddings

A big part of a wedding photographers day is capturing natural, real, candid moments as they happen. Interestingly enough this wasn’t always the case. Back when photography was only film, a wedding photographer would shoot much less than they do today and most of what they shot would be key wedding moments (vows, the kiss etc..) and posed family/couple photos. That slowly started to change in the 90’s even before digital...
