When it comes to weddings, our goal here at Capture Thirteen Photography is to tell the story of your special day through pictures. From the little details of the day to sweet ceremony moments, to classic portraits that will adorn the walls of your home, even the crazy dance floor shenanigans, and the candid moments in between!
When our couples are planning out their wedding day, there is a lot of thought and sentiment behind just about everything that goes into their day. We’ve had brides who picked their wedding colors off of their favorite colors, grooms who have restored vintage cars with their dad to drive off in with their bride at the end of the night, brides who’ve worn their mother’s veils, and even headed out to a family property for bride and groom wedding day portraits beneath a massive oak tree that had been in the bride’s family for over 100 years!
One of the things we love most about wedding days is seeing how our couples make their day uniquely theirs. You see the great thing about weddings is each one is different from the next because each couple is unique so no two are ever exactly the same! When we talk about details we often talk about small things for example… something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue! Or even the more obvious ones… the bride’s shoes, her dress, bouquet, the invitation suite… we could go on and on!
Don’t get us wrong… these things are an important part of your day and are definitely important parts of the day that should be included in your list of details and documented. After all, you’ve dreamed of wearing your dress for months… maybe even years and you only wear it once! You’ve probably spent countless time searching for the perfect invitations to send out to your guests and your flowers only keep for so long. These details should totally be documented and preserved.
Here at Capture Thirteen we always have one final meeting with our couples prior to the wedding day. In this meeting, we provide a checklist of suggested detail pieces and ask for them to be gathered together in a box or bag and ready when we arrive so we can get started right away. These are typically the invitation suites, rings, bouquet, shoes, dress, etc. However, not all details fit into a box or bag, some are bigger like that classic car, while some details are tucked away so that only you know that they are there. So we also ask another question… Are there any other details, sentimental objects, or special moments happening during your day that we should be aware of? This is when we ask our couples to think outside of the box, beyond the list provided and ask them to think of any other special moments or mementos that might be a part of their day.
As photographers, we might not be able to capture the sound of the music as you dance to your favorite song with your best friends on the dance floor, or capture the taste of the cakes made by your grandmother, or actual sound of your voices as you recite your own handwritten vows BUT we can capture those emotions, the goofy fun or excitement or even the tears.
So be sure to fill your photographer in on ALL the details of your special day, after all, they are the strings that bind your story together!
To help you think outside of the box and give you a little inspiration… here are a few of our favorite detailed moments from our past brides and grooms!
