Featured Photographer | Dayna Mae Photography

It takes a cultivated eye to highlight both the love story of a wedding as well as the details that make the day festive and memorable. Dayna Mager of Dayna Mae Photography succeeds at this balance of feeling and storytelling every time she peers through her lens.

Dayna Mae PhotographyMager allows her passion for what she does to shine through her photographs. As she explains, “I love that each of us has a unique story waiting to be told, and there's nothing better than when a couple trusts me to document that.”

Dayna Mae PhotographyIndeed, in addition to her ardent admiration and respect for the love that connects a bride and groom, she has a deep appreciation of the wedding accoutrements that make the day look and feel the way it does. What Mager conveys so well in her pictures is an anchored, grounded sense of the scene, steeped in the rich mixture of emotions that permeate the event.

Dayna Mae PhotographyIn short, Mager takes what she sees in front of her—the love, the sense of occasion, and the particulars of the day—and translates it into inviting images that perfectly encapsulate the moment.

Featured Photographer | JB Photographers

Jeff Berger and Joe Brucculeiri are veterans of the wedding photography business and know exactly what it takes to produce stunning photos. Even after nearly twenty years in the industry together, Berger and Brucculeiri continue to give exceptional care and attention to each wedding they shoot.

JB PhotographersThese two photographers truly enjoy the people part of the job-- especially working with the bride and groom. For example, Berger and Brucculeiri include an engagement photo session as part of every wedding package, which helps them get to know the couple in a relaxed setting, and gives the couple a chance to get comfortable with them.

JB PhotographersIndeed, both lensmen strongly believe that, “it is our responsibility to the bride & groom to add to their enjoyment of the day, not add to the stress.”

JB PhotographersWhen the wedding day arrives, this duo strives to keep the picture process smooth and easy, and promise that, “when things don’t go as planned (almost every wedding) we go with the flow.”

Unflappable photographers Berger and Brucculeiri produce images of polished grace, ebullience, and everything in between. They know how to show a wedding’s best side, which they do with each photograph they take.

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.

Jill Lauren Photography

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.

Above all, he strives to provide first-rate images and experiences for those he photographs. In his own words, Moreau says, “we constantly strive for the best in our company and ourselves. This is so that we can say with confidence that our clients cannot receive better service, quality, and dedication elsewhere.”

Nathan Moreau Photography

One such example of this dedication to provide the best possible experience is an engagement photo shoot that took a turn for the snowier. “The sun had barely come up at a local farm and we were about 10 minutes into our shoot when it started to blizzard!” exclaims Moreau. But that didn’t stop him from persevering and working well with the couple to produce some extraordinary images like this one:
