It was a Sunday wedding and was the perfect way to finish out the weekend. As a wedding photographer we are always excited about what traditions will be celebrated. To be a well rounded wedding photographer, you must be familiar with all traditions. Whether it’s a Protestant wedding, a Jewish wedding, an Indian wedding, a Greek Orthodox wedding, it makes no difference to us. We are very familiar with all of them and the traditions that we will be photographing. For Melissa and Seth, it was a beautiful Jewish wedding. Their wedding was complete with a custom, beautiful Ketubah, a gorgeous Chuppah and breaking the glass. They had it all, and then some. Not only was the weather perfect for a wedding, the location was equally as great. They were married at the newly remodeled Chrysler Museum of Art. If you haven’t had a chance to visit the Chrysler in a while you will love what they have done! We love to work with amazing couples and their families. We also love working with amazing vendors. The wedding day was under the direction of Antonia Christianson Events. As a wedding photographer we love working with great coordinators. They make our day flawless. Many other great vendors were in attendance helping the wedding go off with out a hitch. Fluttering Flowers, Cake Delights, Cuisine and Company, Stage Right Lighting, The Boardwalk Photobooth Company, Kristal Lane Beauty and the band, In Full. Melissa’s gown was from Wedding Atelier. We just loved her wedding gown with the beautiful bolero.

When we are taking photos during preparation, we are always looking for different angles and composition. When you add these elements it creates interest in your wedding photos. If you are a photographer and are stumped on creative composition, our wedding day guide may help. Groom Getting Ready (click on image to enlarge) Should I Have a First Look? Why a first look, you may ask.  As a wedding photographer, we have photographed hundreds of weddings. When one of our bride and groom’s have a “first look”, we find these results. 1. The bride and groom feel complete once they see each other. The wedding day, no matter how prepared you are, you are going to have butterflies. We find that when our bride and groom chose a first look, those butterflies are diminished immediately! 2. It’s the best that a bride is going to look on her wedding day! Dress perfect…check, make up perfect…check, and hair perfect….check, check. 3. It gives a bride and groom some down time to really enjoy each other on a hectic wedding day.   How Do We Photograph a First Look? 1. We find a beautiful location that is undisturbed by people, so it is truly a private meeting. 2. We have the groom facing away so that the bride can approach from behind. This allows a great opportunity for great photos. The expression on a groom’s face as he hears his loved one approaching is amazing. Here is a video that has a real first look at the Chrysler Museum. 3. We always respect the bride and groom’s privacy. 4. Real Emotion. Often it is hard for a groom to let down his guard in a ceremony where he is surrounded by all the guests. Men don’t often like to let down their guard in a group, but in private, it’s different. 5. During a first look we will have two of us photographing. One will be focusing on the bride’s reactions and one focused on the groom. This helps tells the whole story. 6. We capture a few other great photos during that time. After the first look has happened, we get to spend a little extra time capturing additional great pictures.   Melissa and Seth’s First Look I think that you will agree, Melissa can not take a bad photo. She is simply stunning! Bride and Groom (click on image to enlarge)    Jewish Wedding Ceremony Photos Melissa and Seth’s wedding ceremony took place in the stunning Mary’s Garden.
