Featured Photographer |Roberto Farren Photography

For Roberto Farren, it’s about getting the whole story of a wedding by catching the glimmering details on camera along the way.  His stylish photos tell a dynamic narrative of what the bride and groom’s day was really like.

Roberto Farren PhotographyFarren, a transplant from London, labels his style as editorial and blends photojournalism with just the right splash of styling to make each photo stand out and catch the eye. While he likes to help each couple look their best in their photos, he says, “I want to capture those gone in a second moments of emotion as well.”

Roberto Farren PhotographyIndeed, for Farren, it is the story “from start to finish” that is his favorite part about shooting weddings. “Individual parts of the day have different levels of significance but going through an album really wraps everything up nicely,” he explains.

Each of his images are like miniature stories in themselves, preserving an instant that will be talked about later many times over. Whether it’s a memory of being with family and friends,

Featured Photographer | Vincent David Johnson Photography

Vincent David Johnson’s style fuses high level execution with a playful perspective when documenting a wedding. The images he produces are at times serious, at other times humorous—but always meaningful as they chronicle, with honesty and heart, the moments of the bride and groom’s special day.

Johnson’s approach allows him to not only photograph the polished dazzle of the wedding day, but also the quirky flashes of personality specific to each twosome. And as he explains, “a lot of my couples’ favorite images are the ones that are ironic or humorous and not necessarily just the beautiful photos.”

Juxtaposing the traditional elements of the event with the practical details of the day, Johnson succeeds in mixing light-hearted sentiment with tangible, grounded, memories.

Vincent David Johnson PhotographyIndeed, his technical proficiency and extensive experience in other photography fields give him the skills and confidence to snap photos other photographers might not get. With respect and professionalism, Johnson uses “the access and openness a couple, their friends & family will give,” to him to record the bright, sparkling moments,

Hiring a Wedding Photographer: Advice from Behind the Lens

This week, we're happy to present a guest post from featured photographer Jill Lauren, of Jill Lauren Photography.

Jill Lauren Photography

Working with your wedding photographer should be seamless, easy and fun. Included are a few suggestions on how to make your wedding day amazing because of your photographer.

It all starts when you hire a photographer. I totally understand budgets and bottom lines – with that in mind, make sure you hire someone that has a great personality. Not every photographer is going to understand or “get you”. Interview a few that are within your budget. Always follow your gut and hire the one you “like”  the best. (You’ll need to like them to spend all day walking around and listening to what they want you to do)

The next best thing to do after you’ve hired your favorite wedding photographer  -  Plan an Engagement Session. This is the PERFECT opportunity to work together without the pressure of the wedding day. This simple concept of getting to know each other on a professional level makes your wedding day photos smooth and amazing. (plus, as a bonus – you’ll get additional great images of yourself. Win-Win)

Jill Lauren Photography

While you may be working on your “day-of” timeline with your venue, DJ, or wedding planner – your photographer is a KEY individual that needs to be involved with this timeline. Ask for feedback regarding start times, sunset times, various photo schedules (portraits, family photos, bridal party photos). I’m assuming your photos are on the TOP of your priority list – so MAKE the necessary time for those images by scheduling it in with your photographers advice and suggestions.

This last suggestion seems like a no-brainer. But it is so important. Communicate with your photographer. Lots and lots of open communication. Email, text, call her on the phone. Share your ideas and inspiration. Some photographers like receiving ideas (hello pinterest addicts), while others may have their own unique style….it doesn’t matter. Tell her what you like, what you don’t like and what you dream your wedding could be. She will listen. She will absorb. Your photographer should take your ideas, her style and expertise and blend them together for your own one of a kind wedding experience.

When you follow these simple suggestions – you’re nearly guaranteed a good experience with your wedding photographer, which in turn means a seamless and nearly perfect wedding day.
