If time or getting your beautiful dress and tux dirty is an issue, I highly recommend Pre/Post Wedding sessions. Pre/Post Sessions typically last up to 2 hours and can involve a couple different locations and optional outfit changes. A couple advantages to doing them before or after the wedding is that you will not be rushed, you will be more relaxed and natural. Weddings are often around noon when the sun is hottest and brightest; this session provides the flexibility of visiting amazing locations at different times of the day (or night!) to capture great images that we would otherwise not be able to get on the wedding day. We can also do what is called a “trash the dress” session where we go out to lakes, rivers, dirt, and mud and have glorious fun trashing that dress you will never wear again. Often times if you have children, this is a great time to get them dressed up too and bring them along. Another popular option is rehearsal dinner sessions. People who have done this love the more candid, casual, and fun moments that happen just hours before the big day. I love working with clients who want to try something new and interesting, really the opportunities for amazing session types are endless.
