While it is not an easy task to choose my favorite photo, I think I've narrowed it down to one of all of Rob's and my siblings. We were just goofing and drinking wine but the entire memory of that day is summed up in that one photo. I felt such a freeing feeling that day and it means so much to be taken back to that day.
Lance became a fast friend. He fit right in with all of our friends and family that we almost forgot he wasn't just another guest. He constantly had us laughing and was careful to not interrupt the peaceful moments. I'm not super comfortable when the camera's on me and he helped me forget that. Well, the wine helped too. We love the photos of us dancing as much as the posed photos. The best part is that the posed photos don't look "posed". They all have so much life to them!
We chose a package that allowed him to be with us in Spokane, WA almost all day. It was not typical but he customized something perfect for us. Rob and I eloped and had pictures of the wedding already. Initially, we felt that we didn't need many more photos due to that but we were wrong. Lance provided us with so many amazing photos we had a hard time choosing which to frame. He really worked with us and made sure our needs were met, including our budget. We shopped around and there is no better photographer out there from Spokane to Boise.
Like I mentioned, I don't love having my picture taken. Especially if I know it's coming...1...2...3...cheese. I hate that. He truly was like a friend who seemed to snap up the moments of our love and happiness without us noticing. When he did take posed photos, he engaged us in conversation so that he could capture the emotions on our faces as we talked and laughed rather than just staring at the camera. This was one of the things that was really important to me because my expression is usually ridiculous if I anticipate the photo. Lance was wonderful and I'd recommend him to anyone!
What was your favorite wedding photo? I have many favorite pictures however one is of my husband and I on the dance floor during our first dance. It perfectly captures the moment and expresses how much fun we were having that day. The lighting is perfect and the angle is awesome.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? I have to say I like many of the non posed pictures better then the posed but that is just my style. During the wedding and reception I never saw Lance so I have no idea how he got the shots he did. He was where he needed to be at the perfect times.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? Lance accomodated my needs when it came to putting a package together. There are some things I wanted and things I didn't and he came up with a fair price that made everyone happy. The engagement session was included. He came to my parents house for the engagment pictures and had dinner with us afterwards. He is a very laid back guy who likes to get to know his clients but he does it in a very respectful and business like manner.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? Lance is just a comfortable guy to be around. He is polite and respectful of the family and everyone seemed to love him.
I know it is hard to pose large groups of people, I am very anal and if it were me taking the pictures I would have spent a little more time positioning people, placing hands, moving heads and straightening clothes. It is hard to get everything you want during that day with so much going on.
Lance did a fantastic job! I will remind every bride to make a list of pictures you want. If you don't you and the photographer will forget and you will regret it later.
Remember to have fun, rely on others for help, trust those you hired to do their job, and let the day happen. There is only so much you can control the rest is out of your hands so there is no use getting upset over it.
I promise you will not be disappointed in Lance, he has a very artistic edge and does not do the mundane wedding shots you always see. If you want something with style, elegance, and edge you have got your man.
Congratulations and good luck.
What was your favorite wedding photo? I have several favorites. Some are colored, some are black and white. All of them portray the emotion that my husband and I were feeling that day. They capture the most intimate moments that I will never forget. The positioning of the pictures are perfect, the backgrounds are always beautiful. The coloring and lighting are wonderful.
How did the wedding photographer avoid disrupting the day? Great with candids? Action shots? Portraits? The photographer wasn't disruptive at all. Most of the time I had no idea he was even there. In the shots that we posed for, the photographer was attentive and courteous. He did a wonderful job with posed photos and action shots.
What was included in your wedding photo package? Albums? DVDs? Engagement pics? Two photographers? There were several package choices available. I chose a package that included engagement pictures, which I am very happy with. I ordered copies of almost every engagement picture taken as well as the wedding pictures and made enlargements of several of the pictures.
How did the photographer make you and family comfortable? The photographer was personable, charismatic and charming. He made the entire experience fun. I don't think anyone felt uncomfortable at all, we all had a good time.
