Brandi + Jay // Love
Brandi + Jay in Starlight, IN. <3
I couldn't have enjoyed shooting this wedding any more than I did. When I think of these two all I can do is laugh because they are so funny, I mean seriously I feel like they never stop giggling and teasing each other. Their wedding was in Brandi's hometown of Starlight, IN. They celebrated with a small ceremony of their closest family and friends and then attended a reception at the same location After the wedding ceremony the guests threw lavender up into the air and showered Brandi and Jay with love, check out the photos from the lavender toss it was so much fun! The night ended with a live band and plenty of dances and memories to last a lifetime. Thanks for being the best couple to work with, this one is gonna hold a special place in my heart. Congrats to the Parmars!
Brandi and Jay did so many things right that made my job SO much easier and I feel compelled to share a few helpful tips to make the most out of your wedding photography experience:
- Keep your photographer in the loop! If something changes at all shoot a text or send a bridesmaid/groomsmen over to keep everyone on the same page.
- Create a solid timeline with your photographer that details the entire day (and can factor in a little wiggle room). Distribute that timeline to the necessary parties so that everyone knows where they are expected to be throughout the day, that way you aren't answering unimportant questions on your wedding day.
- MOST IMPORTANT (atleast to me) MAKE TIME FOR PHOTOS. If having beautiful images to remember your wedding by is of importance to you, make sure that you allot time for it! Your wedding portraits can't happen in 5 minutes. Brandi and Jay really worked with me to factor in time for their imagery and played an active role in planning what they wanted that day, and it shows!
There is so much more than just what I have listed above that goes into planning for your wedding day in the best way, but the tips above can help get you started on the right track. :)
