Planning Your Wedding Ceremony

In regards to your ceremony, I believe that it's critically important that we don't distract you, your family, or your friends during the most significant part of your wedding day. With that in mind, we always follow the simple rule of never positioning ourselves between a wedding guest and the couple. By using telephoto lenses and working from the back and periphery of the ceremony, we can capture amazing storytelling images without becoming part of the ceremony.

How It's Done

During the processional, I'll be at the front of the aisle, standing on the bride's side so as have the best possible angle to photograph the bride in the foreground and the wedding guests in the background. At the same time, this position prevents me from blocking the groom's view as the bride processes down the aisle, presumably on the arms of her most important family members. After the processional, I'll move to the sides and rear of the congregation and continue the rest of the ceremony coverage from those locations. During some the most important ceremony moments like the ring exchange or the kiss, I may elect step down the aisle to within 50 feet of the altar. However, I avoid getting closer to the altar except in situations where my view is completely blocked as can sometimes happen when the celebrants gather around to pray or light candles. In those cases I might try to move closer in the hopes of obtaining an unobstructed view. At the conclusion of the ceremony, after the kiss and during the recessional, I'll be positioned at the back of the aisle and photograph you both as you recess out of the ceremony location.
