365 days later, and still in love! A one-year anniversary photo shoot.

October 19, 2015

I had the pleasure of meeting Angela and Silvia about eight months ago at a Lakewood Country Club Bridal Show.  They were also working that day at Different Events Planning and Decorating booth.  I was immediately drawn to these ladies because of their bubbly personality, their passion for their craft, and their extensive themed weddings and events portfolio.  Different Events truly breaks the mold when it comes to décor and design.  Over the course of getting to know Angela and Silvia, we discussed their wedding.  What went right, and what went wrong.  Their biggest regret was that their photographer didn’t take enough photos of them on their special day.   As a photographer, this is one thing you never want to hear from a client.  Which is why I decided several years back to have two photographers at each wedding I photograph.  It is inevitable that things will run late on the day of, and when it does, the time allotted to the photographer gets cut short.  If portraits are important for you, please don’t skimp on the photography budget.  Allow enough time for a photographer to take those memories that you’ll cherish for a lifetime, and have adequate coverage.  I recommend a second photographer when your guest-count is over 75 people.

Since vision is 20/20 in hindsight, we couldn’t change the fact that Silvia and Angela didn’t have the photos they wanted on their wedding day.  So they decided to hire me for a one-year anniversary photo session.  Silvia and Angela wanted a light and whimsical photo shoot that encompassed nature, and their tepee.  They chose Eldorado Park because it had everything they wanted.  Anniversary photography is becoming more and more popular because it’s a great way to capture photos in a non-rushed atmosphere, where a couple isn’t distracted by guests, family members, or the bridal party.  Below are photos from Angela and Silvia’s one-year anniversary session.
