from your first email to handing over your wedding album.
Bearing the role of someone's wedding photographer carries immense responsibility, involving numerous behind-the-scenes tasks to create a genuine experience for you. From initial emails, video chats, contracts, and invoices to building trust, guiding poses, navigating the editing process, delivering a gallery, and creating a wedding album, it's an extensive journey.
It is a lot of work, and delivering your long-awaited gallery can take some time. And I get it, you're impatient and want to share your happiness with the world and, of course, change your profile pictures!
That's why, within ten days post-wedding, I dedicate myself to delivering a sneak peek. Eager to catch a glimpse? Here's a preview from Cathérine & Maxim's magical Christmas wedding in December:
C&M got married
in the beautiful Botanical Sanctuary Hotel in Antwerp. I took advantage of the garden adorned with a tree, stripped from its leaves- a real winter wonder, and a view of a church tower in the background, for their “first look” moment.
The groom's mother, who has played a pivotal role in the lives of C&M, mentioned she'd love to use a family photo for a Christmas card, but that she knew the pictures wouldn't be ready by then. “It would be for next year then.” She smiled.
Little did she know, that then and there, I decided to include this photo into the preview gallery. Ready for Christmas!
At the Botanical Sanctuary, they have a gorgeous little chapel, decorated for Christmas with the most beautiful trees. And for their exit, no rice or rose petals, but a flurry of snow!
The enchantment of the moment resonated deeply with me, and I found myself utterly captivated. Winter weddings, with their thoughtful details and unexpected twists like a snowy send-off, evoke a sense of magic that adds an extra layer of romance to the celebration.
Adorned with an abundance of pine trees and twinkling fairy lights, the ambiance of this wedding dinner was nothing short of magical. The crisp winter air carried a sense of enchantment, creating a scene that left an indelible mark on my memory. Winter weddings, with their unique charm and cozy allure, have now secured a special place in my heart. There's something truly captivating about celebrating love amidst the glistening backdrop of snow-kissed pine trees and the warm glow of fairy lights. It was a testament to the beauty of embracing the chillier season for such special occasions, and I find myself officially smitten with the ethereal charm of winter weddings.
I always like to add a few dancefloor photos in the preview – a sneak peek into the lively celebration, capturing your friends reveling and dancing the night away. These photos serve as a preview, offering a taste of the vibrant energy and joyous moments that unfold during this festive part of the wedding. It's a deliberate choice to leave you curious and excited to witness more of the lively celebration in the complete gallery.
