My heart sang when I learned that this stunning couple wanted to forego traditional wedding day portraits and have an After Wedding Session instead. After Wedding Sessions not only save precious time on your wedding day, but allow for full creativity with whatever incredible backdrop you choose. Oh my…did we choose some amazing backdrops. As our bright and sunny sunset session turned to a dark and moody thunderstorm filled sky, we started dodging raindrops. Thankfully the sky held out and the moody clouds assisted in creating some incredible lighting that retained all the detail on the water behind them. Aubry and Ryan adventured with me as we explored lakeside meadows, country roads, a marina and my favorite; a mountain waterfall. Towards to tail end of our session, Aubry and Ryan were all too willing to step into that mountain water and have some romantic moments, all to be documented and frozen in time.
From the bride: I decided to do an after session because I had planned on doing bridals, but then I realized that I would probably never do anything with the pictures of myself if my husband was not in them too. They would probably just sit in a dusty album somewhere. I also didn’t want to waste a lot of time at the wedding trying to get good pictures of my husband and I because we would rather spend that time enjoying our special day.
Advice: My advice for future brides regarding portrait sessions would be to make some plans beforehand. Look on Pinterest to get an idea of some favorite shots and communicate with your photographer about what type of pictures you are looking for and the location that you would like. After that, trust your photographer. Christine was so talented and being easy going and letting her get creative allowed us to get some incredible photos.
