We Don’t Want to Do This

When we meet with people to discuss photographing their wedding, we generally go through the pricing, talk about the schedule, the venue, how they met, etc. At a certain point, the couple will, maybe 75% of the time, look sheepishly at me and say –

“We really don’t like having our picture taken.”

And that’s ok.

A lot of people are not super comfortable in front of the camera, especially if they feel like they’re being posed. A big part of our job is figuring out a way to get around this, to get you look good without making you feel like it’s a huge production. It’s a production on our end, but it should feel natural and fun to you, and it should *look* natural.


Generally, we photograph the couple for 20 to 40 minutes, and at the end they often turn to me and say, “You know what? That was actually kind of fun.”

Just as it should be, right?

Blast From The Past – July 12th, 2003 Dahlgren Wedding

dc wedding photographer
I think this was my first time photographing a wedding at Dahlgren, and I think I’m standing where the baptismal font is now.

We had this printed and displayed at 20×30 inches in our old office…it’s a 6mb file from a Canon 10D, and it looked great! Our current cameras produce a 26mb file.;)
