Blue Ridge Wedding Photography Why Emotion is King. It seems to go together, does it not? Your shooting a wedding day. The day, this particular day, is full of emotion. With so much emotion going in it would be tough to miss it right? Actually you would be surprised how those key moments CAN get missed.Blue Ridge Wedding Photography- Why Emotion is King…and should be.
Listen we all have different styles and different approaches. It’s what makes the world go around. But there are times when the photographer or the couple do NOT want to be photographed showing emotion.
So what do you do with a client request like that?
We turn them down.
That’s right. We decline.
We feel so strongly about the importance of those unplanned burst of emotion we won’t document a day where we are told to avoid them.
I ran across this article a few days back. I could not agree more with one of the brides assessment of one of her images. “at first I hated those pictures of me crying, but now I treasure them.” — Katherine (and Sam)” Check it out below.
This all came to mind after a wedding we were guest at a good while back. We weren’t working it. When the bride made her entrance the groom was visible emotional. It was, to us, a beautiful and tender moment not to be missed.
But it was.
Now whether that was couple stipulated or the photographers style we can’t say. But what a shame that years into their future there won’t be any professional images to document such a huge moment.
Life is made up of a good deal of moments where we are so busy taking care of the business of living that emotional peaks are few and far between. But make no mistake those emotional peaks are the anchors that tie the rest together and make the living not only worthwhile, but cherished.
For us as professional wedding photographers we are documenting a day that is not only special, but sacred. Ensuring we are ready to capture key and peak moments will become a families treasured heirloom.
To be successful you will need to be in the moment, have incredible timing and let your heart hit the shutter.
We are John & Tamera Webb. We own and operate a professional wedding photography studio. We shoot with our hearts on the shutter. We tell stories of the heart.
And it looks like this.
