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.

Late Night Thoughts That Keep Me From Sleeping
Good morning Internet.  It's Friday and I couldn't be happier that the weekend is here, except for the fact that my boyfriend/future husband (is it strange that I still find it weird saying fiance?) is leaving me today for a month in South Africa :-(  Sad for two reason, because I won't see him for 4 weeks, and because he gets to keep going to South Africa without me.  Doesn't seem fair really. I was up late last night, tossing and turning.  I could not get to sleep because I was thinking of all the things that need to happen in the next month.  These thoughts shuffling around in my head were making it clear they weren't going to let me sl ...

Southampton Engagement Photography :: Karl and Nicole
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 ...

No Itinerary :: Europe via Polaroid
But in the stillness of the moment it takes for a polaroid picture To capture our faces forever, The world has turned a touch on its axis, and the only thing certain Is everything changes. -Frank Turner "Polaroid Picture" Those lyrics and the album that they come from was the soundtrack to our 4 month road trip. It's seems a bit mocking, that those words are swirling around in my head today as I sit on the 36th floor of an apartment in China. How quickly everything changes. Looking through these polaroids from our summer, that time now feels really far away. Those carefree summer days are quite the contrast to now, planning o ...
