    Star Wars Wedding

    Star Wars Wedding

    Sometimes as a wedding photographer you get to photograph a wedding outside the box. How about a Star Wars wedding? How about a Star Wars Wedding on the release date of the movie? It would also take place in a movie theater at the stroke of midnight. This would also be a night that immediately following the wedding ceremony, the wedding guests would partake in the viewing of The Force Awakens. That is the story line for Michelle and Chuck’s wedding day. Here is one image that sums it up. I’d say it was quite epic!

    Wedding Photography for a Thematic Wedding

    As a wedding photographer, we are always prepared for almost anything. When we were hired by Michelle and Chuck to photograph their thematic wedding we weren’t exactly sure what type of images we would capture. We knew we would face serious restrictions because their wedding would take place at a movie theater. When you are photographing in a public place there are many restrictions that can apply. Many times we are working with the management with the venue. In this case, we went a step further and had to work with the local police force. If it were not for the help of the local officers we would not have been able to capture the outdoor wedding shots. We want to give a BIG shout out to the security team that was present.

    We knew some of the details of the wedding prior to our arrival. We knew that we would we photographing in the theater and hopefully outside the theater. We knew that there would be no natural light since the wedding ceremony was at midnight. We knew that the bride and groom would be dressed as Princess Leia and Han Solo. We also knew that the wedding guests would be dressed in costume.

    To prepare for the evening we wanted to think through some iconic Star Wars posing. We also knew that we would need various sources of photographic lighting to accomplish our creative goals. We were also prepared to have a thematic background with photographic lighting to capture the wedding guests. With all that in mind we prepared for a night of fun that would not disappoint.

    San Francisco Engagement Session | Sara & Rich

    San Francisco Engagement Session

    Are you recently engagement and looking for a photographer for your San Francisco engagement pictures? Contact us today for more details.

    Engagement Sessions

    Ah…who doesn’t love a beautiful engagement session. For us, there is nothing more beautiful then photographing two people in love.

    We had a great time with Sara and Rich on their engagement photo shoot. We were lucky that those chose us to photograph both their engagement session and their wedding. Both their engagement session and wedding were in San Francisco. We had never met Sara and Rich until our plane landed and we met up at Baker Beach. Baker Beach is such a gorgeous place to photograph. The setting couldn’t be more gorgeous. On a clear or nearly clear day there is a spectacular view of the Golden Gate Bridge. What could be more iconic to San Francisco then that? We learned about the Baker Beach Golden Gate Bridge perspective while shooting a maternity session there last year. You can view that here. The big contrast between these two photo sessions on Baker Beach was the fog. For Sara and Rich we had a “Chamber of Commerce” type of day, or in other words, perfect. For our maternity session, it was a typical San Francisco foggy day, however, still beautiful in it’s own right.

    We have such amazing clients. Not only do we only have gorgeous clients, but they are willing to do anything for a great engagement picture! At moments on their session the air became quite breezy and brisk. There were no complaints from the stunningly dressed Sara in her gorgeous dress. Then there was also the hiking up the weather worn, out of level, rocks we trekked to capture the crashing of the San Francisco Bay. Still no complaints from Sara and Rich.

    Outdoor Engagement Photos

    We love our outdoor engagement sessions. We love photographing beautiful people in beautiful locations. Scott comes from a landscape photography background. Now that you know that, looking at his images, I think that it will be an ah ha moment for you. We often incorporate the landscape into our images. It gives the viewer a since of where they were, and also the subject, or client, can recall many details that may have been missed during the photo shoot. These things may be how green the grass was, the rustling in the branches or the waves crashing on the shore. Sometimes it’s difficult for the subject to remember all of that. When we shoot with this perspective, it brings back all those wonderful details of the area where their photo shoot took place.

     Indiana Wedding Photography

    As a wedding photographer, we love photographing in different locations. For most photographers this may be a challenge but for us, we thrive on it. We love the idea of being in a location that is unique to us. Indiana was one of those places.

    What seems so common for Indiana natives, is unique to others. Barns, prairies and cornfields really got us excited about Chris and Ashley’s wedding photography.

    Bride Getting Ready Photos

    We cherish the time that we get to spend photographing a bride getting ready. When we have mom involved in the process we love it even more. The time spent with a mom and daughter on a wedding day is valuable. Being chosen to be the wedding photographer is priceless.

    First Look Wedding Pictures

    Who doesn’t love a first look? Well, I can tell you as a wedding photographer we love it. We find that if a bride and groom decide to do a first look we get real emotion. The wedding day is a buzz and a first look seems to calm the soul. We find that during a first look a bride and groom get to really enjoy their time together, cherish each other and take a deep breath. While we are photographing the first look we stay rather stealthy so that we don’t interfere with the emotion. We position the groom facing away from where the bride will enter. We always choose an area where the groom will hear the bride approaching. The bride then will give the groom a little tap and when he turns around, the magic happens.

    We then are able to capture some private portraits of the bride a groom. Here are just a few of our favorites from the wedding.

    Beautiful Bride and Groom


    Sacred Heart Church and Chrysler Museum Wedding

    Theresa and Victor were married at two of the most beautiful venues in Norfolk. Sacred Heart Church and the Chrysler Museum of Art.

    When you look at these stunning wedding pictures you may think to yourself, “Who couldn’t have a stunning wedding at those two venues?”. If you are thinking that, you would be wrong. A gorgeous flawless wedding like Theresa’s and Victor’s only comes under the direction of an excellent wedding planner. Ted Martinez of Ted Martinez Event Management was the key. Theresa and Victor gave Ted their perfect wedding vision and Ted and his team made it a reality. He not only made it a reality, he went over and beyond.

    The day started at the Norfolk Marriott.

    The hotel room was a buzz with the excitement of the wedding day. There we found the bridesmaids, the bride, the parents of the brides and some very special vendors. Sarah Rillon was a very busy make up artist creating flawless makeup and Pin Up Doll Hair Design was working her magic on the bridal party.

    The video team from Light Works Films was also capturing all the excitement on film.

    In the picture above you will see all the beautiful wedding details. With the unique wedding invitation being created by Kat Blu Studios, Day of Stationery created by Paper Stylist. They set the tone for the elegant wedding day.

    Chrysler Museum Wedding Reception

    Once we arrived at the Chrysler Museum of Art it was obviously that this wedding reception was going to be the pinnacle of the day. For a bride and groom the wedding day can become a blur so that is why it is so important to have great wedding photography to capture all the details of the day. Theresa and Victor’s wedding reception was full of amazing details.

    We love when our wedding day is surrounded by vendors that are truly the A-Team. Blue Steel Lighting set the tone for the entire reception. They made the ambiance of the room stunning. With the Florals and Designs by Ivie Joy Flowers & Events they made the room breathtaking. That was not where it stopped. The catering was by Cuisine and Company, the talented Jamestown Quartet, the gorgeous cake by Shockley’s Sweet Shoppe and caricature drawings by talented caricature artists for the guests.

    As the wedding reception processed, we were entertained by the sounds of the A-Town A-List. I have to tell you, hands down, one of the best bands I have ever heard.

    Now, here are some of the amazing wedding reception details.
