Blue Ridge Wedding Photography-The Details with Heart
Blue Ridge Wedding Photography- The Details. Details with heart.
Blue Ridge Wedding Photography-The Details. Weddings are wonderful things. Full of emotion, heart and once in a lifetime moments. Wedding photographers are hired to capture that day and of course, the day includes the details.
If you peruse many featured on-line weddings you’d think the details were the stars front and center of their respective weddings. Image after image of the cake, the setups, the flowers and the rooms.
Flowers like these can be found with one of our favorite florist A Delicate Petal. You can check them out HERE:
And you know what? That is perfectly fine. It isn’t how we shoot details or how we choose to backdrop them. We have always taken the approach that wedding photography is like so many things, taste and preference drive it. Our choice in cars, clothes, homes, food and even friends is highly individualized. The same is true for wedding photography.
The weddings above were all shot in the downtown Marietta area. You can check out some of those spots like the fabulous Strand Theater . You can check them out HERE:
We also love the Marlow House. You can check them out HERE:
We love all the images above. At the very top is what would be mostly considered more standard detail shots. Even though the details are emphasized a few things become obvious. The images are carefully shot to make use of available light. The interplay between light and shadows creates the desired mood. You will also notice these images are not the bright (overly so in my opinion) overexposed images that have become quite popular.
In the second and third set of images you see more of what we strive for. These are details, but details with a human element. Showing the brides choice of veil or garter is still done, but done with the bride in the image.
Probably the best way to define our approach to details is that we shoot details with a human or mood element. We also take the approach that people trump things every day of the week and twice on Sunday.
We also love to show details that help tell the story. A great bottle of Champagne, a puppy saying happy wedding day or a necklace displayed far prettier around a brides neck than sitting on a table or in a box. Each image has the human element of the person or a unique story.
When choosing a wedding photographer we always state for the couple to ask to see a wedding from beginning to end. That includes the details and the approach to them.
We are John & Tamera Webb. We own and operate a wedding photography studio in Blue Ridge Georgia. We shoot with our hearts on the shutter and it looks like this.
