The Barn at Swallows Eve in Fredericksburg is the quaint, quintessential Texas hill country wedding venue. The venue is family owned, has so many different spots to have your ceremony and a huge barn to dance the night away. Sara and Randy’s patriotic military wedding was perfect even though their summer wedding had to be moved up to February (yay for ever changing military dates!)
This Avant Garden wedding day was perfect from start to finish. Not too hot, not too cool, overcast but no rain. So many adorable pink and blue details made by Gigi and Alex. I was in heaven shooting everything!
First came their proposal, then their Downtown Houston Engagement pictures, next month comes their wedding!
Wedding photos (and video) are the two things that you look back on after the wedding day is long gone! It’s a stressful thing to think out and try to plan for to make sure those memories are captured with ample time, but the main key is having someone there who knows what they’re doing and has done many weddings (like Pure Plush has!) A wedding happens once and hiring a professional is definitely the first key.
So what are some wedding photo tips to make sure you have those memories captured? Here’s three tips I think help making the day run the smoothest to get the best shots. Read to the bottom for a Bonus Tip!
I get asked a lot, “Do you do Catholic wedding photography?” Sure do! I have shot at different Catholic churches and one thing I have learned over the years is: every priest is different at each church. They have their own set of rules about photos, where you can stand, where I can stand, flowers, what you can wear, what your bridesmaids can wear, etc. I learn the rules of each church beforehand and shoot away (while following all the rules!)
