What is our day-after creative session?
It doesn't matter what your budget is for your wedding, the day-after session will make you feel like you belong on the front of an editorial every time! This session was developed from our passion to create unique stories for each of our clients. The wedding day has become such a controlled production of expectations, we wanted to blow open the creative box, to show what kind of images we could capture if our bride and grooms didn't have the stress of the wedding day in front of them. And by shooting this session AFTER the wedding, we accomplished some pretty amzing things!
The magic of the day-after session (What we have found)
There's something special that takes place in this session that is found lacking during the wedding; the essence of relaxation! Weddings are good and fine, but we find there is so much hurry, mixed with overly high expectations, that more stress is created than excitement, which leads to people not being themselves. And when people aren't themselves, you can't capture "the real them"—the essence behind those gorgeous eyes and that handsome frame.
The cure for the shy, scared and timid
Many of our couples have at least one person that, how should I put this? Is less in love with the camera than the other. This can lead to a sense of dread in the bottom of the stomach of the one who isn't overly excited about pictures. Our day-after session has surprised many in both it's pleasantness and in the ability to bring out the true essence of each individual. Our philosophy isn't just to take creative pictures, it's to connect with each client in way that will provide them a vacation from life, a bubble of enjoyment, and no matter how subtle, the emotional thread that pulls each person towards the other in a relationship.
Is the day-after session really "the day-after?"
The day-after session is named such because it happens after the wedding. We find all of our sessions are created to be creative and so by naming this simply the "creative session" seemed to imply that the rest of our session were not as creative, which is not the case. The day-after session simply means this session comes some time after the wedding day. This could be weeks, months or even years, celebrating an anniversary of love and time traveled between the couple.
