Beautiful wedding photography for Lovers

Wedding image on wood Fotoophout

Category:

When providing couples with wedding products it is difficult to decide on new products. A couple of years ago I came across Canvas Company and their brand for professional photographers Canvas Company Pro. They have beautiful, high quality canvases.

So when found out they also have a new product Foto op Hout to print images on wood I was intriged. What would it look like? Would it be just as great as the canvas images. Well they didn't disappoint. I am used to receiving my orders really fast and this new product reached my doorstep within a week.

I really love the result of the image on wood. It has a totally different appeal than a canvas but if you like something different this is for you. Your images look super sharp on the wood and it is a joy to look at. See the result below.



Album options

Category: Albums | Wedding

A little while back my album company QT albums contacted me if I would like to receive some samples of their fine art album paper and flush mount photo paper with some of my images. They also asked if I liked to receive a new swatch ring. I happily responded that I would indeed like to receive some samples and forgot about it. 

Until I received a package in the mail. I was expecting an envelop with some samples you see, nothing more but to my surprise I received a beautiful package. It included the various cover options, samples of the three fine art papers with my own images and the photographic paper tied together in a beautiful booklet. I was really amazed with this gift.

This way it will be even easier to show my couples what album options are available and then they are able to see the possibilities for themselves. This beautiful showcase really stands out and shows that my album company knows what photographers need.

If you would like to come and see the options that we provide come and see for yourself.



4 Tips to get the most out of your family formals

Family portraits are often part of the wedding day. The bride and groom as the centre, looking their best with their family and friends gathering around them. Family portraits can be a time consuming effort and a challenge to plan without the couple having to freeze their smile.

If you want effortless family formals and get the most out of your formals consider the following:

Choose a spaceous location

That is easy to say but consider the garden of the wedding location. Choose a location with some space so large groups can fit in easily without people feeling squeezed in. Outdoor locations are the best possible option. Don't let a couple of rain drops scare you. One of the group images below was take while some rain drops fell, they held on and what beautiful images it turned out to be.

Background

We will always try to find locations that have some depth in the background. It adds even more space to the image but can also help focus on the group in the centre of the image.

Have fun

Real laughter shows in an image. I always try to get that genuine smile that laughter that makes a great family formal because family formals do not have to only be formal.

Make a list

Yes I am actually advising a list, I know it sounds grazy coming from me the person who despises shotlists. But the only part of the wedding day to make a shot list of is the family formal. If you consider before hand who you want to have in a separate family formal will help speed up taking the actual image. Family formals can take up to half an hour to forty five minutes with big families and friend. With a list and your maid of honor or planner help gathering all the family member can speed up this proces considerably.

I hope this helps just one person while planning your wedding day. Have a great weekend!



Ask Anything: Why capture details

Category: Photography | Wedding

While meeting couples when they are considering a wedding photographer they ask a lot of different things. From common questions as the amount of images they get from they wedding day, how they get there images to delivered or why I would want to photograph the dress or shoes.

Answering the last question I tell couples that a wedding day is build out of many big moments which will always be the main focus of a wedding day but also out of small details. When capturing a wedding it is not just one or the other but a combination that tells the story. Your story the story of all of the elements that you have selected, of what is special for you. For some that might be the color theme they selected or all of the DIY love and labor you put in you wedding. I want to showcase those besides the big moments because to small details are the first thing you forget but are also important.

And they make for great spreads in your album.
