Kyle & Katie

Matt and I took the red-eye back to sunny FL over the weekend to photograph Kyle & Katie's wedding. What a sweet couple; these people couldn't be nicer. Their church ladies, however, we're not as easy to work with. They were nice too, of course, but had very strict rules.

This is the first time Matt and I have encountered a church that wouldn't let us go beyond the last pew or use flashes. I, personally, think it should be the couple's choice how close the photographers can get. But, we roll with the punches and Matt was able to nail the moments as the unfolded from the very back of the church with a telephoto while I shot wide. We pride ourselves on working well as a team. ;)

Lately, we've been developing different editing techniques. The photo above looks like one of our photos. We really dig this style but, I've been really trying to mix things up. I think wedding photos are well suited to look vintage, as well as fresh and colorful. So, I edited the following two photos to look they'd just been found in the attic many years after the wedding. I really like the faded or "incorrect" colors.

This is a digital age and all of our couples get the originals as well as anything funky we do to their photos during post-processing. It's cool to work with Matt because we like such diverse things; our goal is to create one unified visual story by two very different artists. We hope we're acheiving that but, regardless we're having a great time. Weddings rock. :)

The happiest moments cant be catch by anyone other tan photographers. As we know the wedding is the happiest moment in our life so the person who capturing it must be well trained and professional in that. U can get such persons from wedding app who catch ur happy moment in the fair way. Try it and keep ur happy moments as photographs with u by using wedding app.
