Danielle and David elegant wedding in Washington MO.
We are often asked on whether to do a first look at your wedding or not. If you are planning your wedding you are probably making that decision right now. So we wanted to share our answers in hopes of shedding some light on the question.
- As wonderful as a first look can by, what are some reasons couples may want to save that special moment for down the aisle?
We believe having a first look is a personal decision. If our bride has her heart on not having the first look then we always support that and then communicate with the planner very clearly about the timeline so we can make sure to get everything we know our couples are going to want for their Wedding Photography.
Photographing weddings for a long time we noticed that moms are essential behind the scene during the wedding day. They are making sure that everything runs smooth and just the way her girl dreamed about. They want you to be happy and enjoy the wedding, believe or not moms care about our happiness more than we do. We call this unconditional love.
As wedding photographers, we are so focused on creating beautiful images for our clients and being of service. Running a creative type of business is rewarding but we also love getting together with another creative we admire, share our personal vision, create beautiful work and let the word to see it.
To be published in the international luxury bridal magazine “Novelty Bride” is a wonderful thing. The magazine is our favorite bridal magazines, it featured aesthetics we as photographers admire, elegance and grace with a modern fashionable twist.
We are posting images which did not make into the magazine spread but we believe they are equally beautiful. If you are in love as we are, with stylish fashion magazines, in love with modern, artsy and fashionable then the editorial photography style is photography style for you.
Photography in this style opens a huge scope of creativity which combines sensuality, art, and elegance as well unique storytelling.
Exciting happenings for Photo Elegance. We are honored to be published in the new issue of international luxury bridal magazine “Novelty Bride”. The magazine is one of our favorite bridal magazines, it featured aesthetics we as photographers admire, elegance and grace with a modern fashionable twist. The idea to submit for a fashion editorial for Novelty Bride came up by seeing that magazine issue will feature everything Europe inspired. We as European/American couldn’t resist to this adventure. Brainstorming started, what is the mood we’ like to achieve, who are the professionals we like to invite to participate in the photo shoot, location and much more.
Pasion to create impeccable portraits to our brides goes much further. Love for everything related to elegance and fashion and style brought idea to have photo shoot about elegance inspired by Coco Chanel quote “simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance”
The final decision was made, our team will highlight the style of simplicity, feminine elegance, impeccable style, and timelessness.
“True Elegance” editorial was on its way.
We reach to our friends and professionals who have experience in fashion as well in the wedding industry. We believe they are the best fit for the shoot.
