Featured Photographer | Almanza Photography

For James Almanza, it’s all about being in the right place at the right time, and yet simultaneously being out of the way. He has a talent for capturing the essence of a wedding on camera unobtrusively, as the day's events unfold around him.

Almanza describes his photographic style as “classic editorial candids with fine art and fun mixed in.”

Almanza Photography He considers it a privilege to photograph a couple’s wedding and strives to catch the spirit and substance of each wedding he shoots. From the “once in a lifetime moments” like the ceremony,

One of his favorite parts of photographing weddings is getting to see the couple “experience their wedding from a guest’s point of view,” when they first see their photos. Indeed, Almanza has a saying, “Taking a good picture is easy. Taking a picture someone else will think is good, not so easy.” Though from his photos, “not so easy” seems almost effortless for James Almanza.

5 Reasons to Consider a Day-After Photo Shoot

Oftentimes, the wedding day is a blur of incredible memories, family and friends, joy, love, and more joy. Trying to fit everything into a single day --from getting ready, to the cherished moments of your ceremony and the celebration at your reception, to finding the time to take all the wedding photos you want-- can be a challenge.

You should definitely make a wedding shot list and arrange a plan of action with your wedding photographer, but if you’re still feeling short on time, here’s another option:  why not schedule a day-after shoot for all the photos you really want of you and your beloved without the rush of the wedding day?

There are many reasons couples are taking advantage of a day-after photo shoot. Here are a few of our favorites:

  1. Enjoy your day. Chances are, no matter what happens you’ll enjoy your wedding day, but wouldn’t it be great to have some breathing room? Obviously, you’ll want a few shots as a couple and individual portraits on the day, but then save the rest for your day-after shoot and spend the extra time eating cake with your friends and leading the conga line.
  2. Take the pressure off. Of course you want your wedding photos to be absolutely gorgeous, but if the perfect picture of you and your hubby kissing doesn’t come out, or you wanted just one more shot of your veil before you took it off, a day-after shoot is the perfect opportunity to get another chance at the photos you want.
  3. Go ahead, take a chance! Having a day-after shoot allows you to take some chances you might not want to risk on your wedding day. Go for the more dramatic makeup or the more high fashion hairdo and have fun!
  4. Location, location, location. Your ceremony site and wedding reception are obviously places you chose for a reason, but did you have any other places in mind when you thought about your wedding photos? Take some shots near your favorite landmarks, recreate scenes from your favorite movies, go for a run through the surf now that you don’t have to worry about your dress!
  5. Trash the Dress, anyone? Speaking of running through the surf, what better time to do a Trash The Dress photo shoot than the day after your wedding? Jump in a lake, ride on a tractor, climb a tree, you choose!

The day-after photo shoot is really all about you and your beloved. Whether you use it to take photos you might never have a reason to take, as a way to further capture the beauty and magic of your wedding, or as a great way to start off your honeymoon, a day-after shoot is definitely one you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
