When you choose Shev Production, you can expect professional service, high-quality photography and videography products, and a team that genuinely loves what they do. To help make your wedding day as stress-free as possible, here's what to expect when working with us:
1. Capturing the Details: We know how much thought and care you've put into every aspect of your wedding day, from the dress and veil to the rings and flowers. Our team will spend about an hour photographing these details around your wedding location.
2. Getting Ready: We'll capture the precious moments leading up to the ceremony, such as getting your hair done, zipping up your dress, and the reactions of your loved ones. We'll also document the finishing touches for the groom, like cufflinks, bow ties, and polished shoes.
3. The First Look: The first look is an emotional and unforgettable moment that captures the raw emotions of the couple seeing each other in their wedding attire for the first time. This once-in-a-lifetime event allows the couple to share an intimate moment together, away from the eyes of their guests. Photographing the first look not only captures the genuine reactions of the couple but also provides an opportunity for some stunning, heartfelt images that will forever remind you of the anticipation and excitement you both felt in the moments leading up to your ceremony.
4. Ceremony: We'll be with you every step of the way, capturing your walk down the aisle, the exchange of vows, and the first kiss. If your venue has any photography restrictions, please inform us in advance.
5. Family Portraits: After the ceremony, we'll take extended family portraits that showcase the love and joy between you and your loved ones. We aim for natural, relaxed groupings that highlight your unique connections.
6. Bridal Party Photos: Your bridesmaids and groomsmen are essential people in your life, and we want to capture the friendships you share. We'll take a mix of formal and informal poses in a beautiful location with great lighting.
7. Bride and Groom Photos: This is our favorite part of wedding photography - capturing the love, tenderness, joy, and excitement between the two of you. We'll choose a stunning location that allows for various shots, giving you a collection of gorgeous images to cherish.
8. Reception: It's time to party! We'll be there to document all the fun while you enjoy dancing, eating, and spending time with your guests. Let us know about any special events or surprises planned throughout the night so we can be ready to capture them.
9. Special Exit: If you're planning a unique exit, we'll need at least 10 minutes to set up our lights and prepare for the perfect shot.
10. The first dance is a significant and symbolic moment in any wedding reception. It's the couple's first opportunity to take the dance floor together as newlyweds, showcasing their love and unity as they embark on this new chapter. Capturing this event is crucial, as it highlights the connection between the couple and creates lasting memories of their unique dance. By documenting the first dance, couples can look back and cherish the emotions, movements, and expressions that made their celebration truly special.
11. Cutting the Cake: The cake-cutting ceremony is a time-honored wedding tradition that symbolizes the couple's commitment to providing for each other and sharing their lives together. This light-hearted and fun moment allows the couple to feed each other a piece of their wedding cake playfully. Photographing the cake cutting captures the joy, laughter, and sometimes even the cake smashing, creating unforgettable memories of this playful and intimate moment. Professional photographers are skilled at capturing the details of the cake, the couple's expressions, and their interactions during this event, ensuring that these images will be cherished for years to come.
12. Tossing the Bouquet and Garter Toss: The bouquet toss and garter toss are traditional wedding events that symbolize the passing on of good fortune and happiness to others. The bouquet toss involves the bride throwing her bouquet over her shoulder to a group of single women, while the garter toss sees the groom tossing the garter to a group of single men. These lively and spirited events create a fun and competitive atmosphere for great photo opportunities.
Capturing the participants' excitement, anticipation, and reactions during these events adds a dynamic and entertaining element to your wedding album. These images serve as a reminder of the joy and camaraderie shared among your guests and create a lasting memory of the lighthearted moments during your wedding celebration.
In conclusion, it's essential to document these key wedding moments, as they represent the love, commitment, and joy shared between the couple and their guests. By capturing these events, our professional photographers and videographers ensure that you will have a beautiful and complete visual story of your special day, allowing you to relive and cherish these memories for a lifetime.
