Wedding Photography by Elen Studio Photography -our philosophy is to reflect the atmosphere of your wedding day in beautiful and stylish pictures. We want to tell a story of your wedding day.
What coverage do you offer?
We usually cover the wedding day from the very beginning, bridal or groom preparations (whatever is first) until the first dance. On special requests we can stay longer to photograph, say, a band performing after the first dance, or fireworks. Each wedding is unique and we always offer a bespoke package tailored to your needs. Let’s have a virtual photogapher’s tour through your wedding day.
Depending on logistics, we would start either from bride or groom preparations. For the bride, we would photograph the dress, jewellery, flowers and other important details, then, once the dress is on, photograph final touches, bride with the bridesmaids and, of course, with her parents. These moments are so emotional! As for the groom’s preparations, it won’t take long and there is nothing to worry about – we’d just photograph the groom with the ushers as they get together, the handshakes, jokes etc. This all adds to the story of your wedding day!
Then, of course, it’s time for the ceremony. These days the variety of setups and venues can vary so much, from traditional church ceremony to outdoor ceremonies at wedding venue grounds! As we usually work as two photographers, we can photograph from two places at the same time. This helps us to capture some unique moments which the bride and groom would never see! Also, this allows one of us to be with the bride and her father to the ceremony door, and the other one – photographing the bride’s entrance. The ceremony coverage is, of course, fully reportage, this is such an emotional part. If videography is part of your wedding package with us, we will also do a full video of your ceremony – see wedding videography page for more info.
FAMILY AND GROUP SHOTS
The family group shots are still important these days but, of course, it is up to you how many you would like to have. Quite often some guests attending the ceremony might have come long way and having a family photo together at the wedding might be the only opportunity. When doing the group shots, we look for opportunitues to make these ‘formal’ photographs less formal, more creative and live reflecting connections between the family members and friends. Over the years we’ve got some exepereience on making the organisation of group shots less stressful and less time consuming, just ask 🙂
THE BRIDE AND GROOM
And now, after the official part is over, it’s time for the two of you. We recommend you to get away from your guests to get your own pictures. We love photographing your emotions, hugs and kisses and this is an excellent opportunity to get some beautiful shots of you, as a newly married couple. At the engagement photo shoot we would have discussed your preferences in terms of kind of pictures you would like to have; at meetings before the wedding we agreed on where to go; and now is time for you to relax and enjoy yourself, it’s our job now. Hve a look at our portfolio of wedding photographs – all of them are unique, so will be yours.
THE SPEECHES, FIRST DANCE AND PARTY
When it comes to speeches, we photograph them too. There is often such a relaxed atmosphere, lots of laughs, smiles, surprises and jokes, which are all part of the story of your wedding day. If you have any special present or moment you would like us to capture, please let us know in advance and we will capture that.
Just before the evening party, there is a tradition to cut the cake and time for the firt dance. With professional light, cameras and our expereience, we are able to memorise the light and shadows of your first dance. Just enjoy yourself! If videography is part of your wedding package with us, we will also do a full video of your speeches, cake cut and the first dance – see wedding videography page for more info.
