Southampton Wedding Photography :: Dyana and Chris

couples Film portraits wedding

Maybe one of my favorite parts about photographing weddings, is being able to see a couple at their absolute best. It’s one of the happiest days of their lives, they’ve planned the entire day down to the last detail, and they both look absolutely gorgeous. They are surrounded by the people that they love most in the whole world, and those people are shining so much light onto them. You hear the stories of their lives, both as individuals and as a couple up to that point, and being there makes you feel like part of the story as well. You can see the goodness in both the bride and the groom reflected on the faces of their loved ones and you hear it in the speeches of their best friends. As an outsider, you learn of the ways these two people have impacted the lives of the guests, who are now there to stand with them on such an important day in their lives.

I clicked with these two from the first time we met. I always felt like we were on the same page in terms of what they wanted out of their engagement and wedding photography. I would write little suggestions and ideas of what I thought might work for them, and Dyana would write back with complete excitement and more of her own creative ideas to add onto it. Photographing their day felt easy, because we were all riding the same wave. I am beyond thrilled for these two and know that they share something amazing, and for one day, I got to be a part of it.

 

Best move I’ve ever seen performed by a groom.

Dyana and Chris added a film package to their wedding day coverage. Many of the shots above were shot on 35mm and 120mm film. There’s are a couple polaroid photos as well.

A special thanks to Xong Hang for helping me photograph Dyana and Chris’ wedding. Her input and help was invaluable to me that day. Many of the photos above are ones that she captured.

Daylight savings time has arrived!!  Which means 2 things, 1) for the next couple of days I'm going to be dragging in the morning and might have to drink two lattes instead of my usual one, and 2) we have a whole extra hour of evening light!  The winter time makes it really difficult to schedule shoots during the week due to work schedules and such, and because the sun goes down so early.  But now....the days are getting longer and we've switched the clocks forward so essentially everyone gets out of work an hour earlier, making it easier to schedule an evening shoot.  So get ready! Here's a little preview of something I'll be showing the ...

I always try my best, no matter what, to get a couple in front of my camera before their wedding day. Not everyone is used to having a camera pointing at them, and it's often really hard to not go into "cheese" mode when it is. Getting a couple in front of the camera before their wedding day, helps me to coach them a bit and get used to my style of photography. That way, on their big day, they can focus on each other, and that's when the magic happens. However, these two had no problem in front of my camera. It seemed like they had already done it all before. We got to sneak away from the party for a bit to catch that afternoon light that ...

An absolute dream location. A bride and groom who give you lots of time with them. Sleeping in a tipi under the stars. Sunshine in the Pacific Northwest. A tipi village next to a river. Beautiful friends and family. A couple film cameras. Handmade decorations. Corn Hole and Giant Jenga. All this, nestled in the foothills of Eugene Oregon, is a recipe for a beautiful wedding day.
