What a great time to be a Wedding Photographer in the El Paso and Las cruces area! Since we had a look back at all the beautiful brides last week, lets now take a look back at all of our Grooms we have photographed over the years! My approach in photographing a Groom is a bit different than my approach with Brides. I am usually scheduled to photograph the Groom and his groomsman before the bride so they are my first view into the wedding day. More often than not, when I arrive, the groom is relaxed and ready to be photographed. I can usually tell from this first session of the day on how the wedding day will go. How, you ask? Well, more often than not, the groomsman are energetic and ready to have FUN and, they will keep the party going during the reception! I like to have a great time and not make it awkward that I am there to get the shots I need. Lighting is a factor as well, with Grooms. I prefer harsher shadows and more masculine poses. As you can see, most of the images posted, the grooms are in short lighting and in broad lighting on some occasions. Even using natural window light, I try to make sure that my grooms are in the best light possible. Or, we create the best light possible by moving furniture and adjusting the area for the shot!
Anyone that knows me knows that I LOVE photographing weddings! I have been blessed with the best clients and I feel that their images show how relaxed and how happy they are on their wedding day. I try to bring a calm and the least amount of stress with my tasks for photographing the wedding day. I am ALWAYS early, I am in good spirits, happy and full of joy to capture my clients day. Even in stressful situations, with the day running late or not getting the images I wanted, my clients will alway see me relaxed and ready to get the job done. I feel like that your clients hire you not only for your imagery but for your personality as well. Its our job as photographers to only add PEACE and CALM to a day that sometimes can be hectic. We should strive to not stand out but to be rememberable through our images and our professionalism.
