Every wedding photographer has a wish-list, whether they’ve got it written down or just in the back of their heads. For instance, my buddy Maggie wants nothing more than to photograph a circus wedding – with a striped tent and performers and all that good stuff. That sounds awesome to me, but it wouldn’t make the list. But before I give people having their wedding at hotels or golf courses or vineyards a big sad, I thought I’d instead muse on my favorite wedding things.
My ideal wedding conditions
I get asked this question a lot, so maybe it should instead be an Infrequently Asked Question. Potential clients ask me about my ideal wedding conditions. They think I’m going to say something like good weather, outdoors, sunset ceremony, beautiful venue. Those things are nice. Certainly if I were given complete free reign to make a wedding (ha!) I’d make it sunny, golden hour all day, no bugs, gorgeous outdoor venue with funky artsy indoor spaces and – heck – let’s just put the whole thing in Paris.
