When I photograph a wedding, one of my favorite parts is photographing the details. Details have become much more popular today than when I was a bride 8 years ago. I had a few things like a garter, earrings, a necklace, and an antique handkerchief that my mother-in-law had given me. But my photographer didn't photograph any of those things. I was given 2 photos of our rings but that was it. So now when I show up for a wedding and the bride has perfume, invitations, rings, jewelry, a veil, his and her gifts for each other, and so much more, I'm simply ecstatic!!! All these beautiful things, let me at em'!!!!! But it isn't easy to organize all of these things beautifully. It takes practice.
These past few months have been all about connection for me. Connecting with brides, with vendors, and other photographers. One of my favorite photographers in the area just happens to live super close to me. So, one beautiful morning last week we got together, with all 7 of our children I might add, for a little quality time. When I arrived she was preparing brunch which was super sweet of her, not to mention delicious. She also had pulled out an amazing assortment of goodies for us to practice our detail styling. I mean, she had an entire table completely covered in beautiful details!!! She had silver trays and Mrs. boxes, ribbon, antique mirrors and books, shoes, perfume, ties, pocket squares, you name it! And we spend a good four hours "playing" with details and photographing them while listening to worship music and just having a grand time. I really can't wait to do it again!!! I hope you enjoy some of the things we created and I hope it gives you a good idea of what details you might be able to include on your big day.
