4 Stages of a Wedding Pt. 1

Around 60-70 percent of the photography will be from a narrative or journalistic approach. The rest will be portrait style, where I will help pose you and/or your family. This is helpful to capture great bride shots, bride and groom portraits, family, and bridal party photos.

For the sake of photography, I like to break the wedding into 4 segments. The first is…

Getting Ready

First, some shots are taken of the wedding dress and anything special such as notes, jewelry, gifts can be staged for photographs.Wilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography Wilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography Wilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography

Next, several shots of the bride getting ready are taken. When she is finished a few bride portraits are taken alone and then the Bridesmaids and family get involvedWilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography Wilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography Wilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography Wilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography Wilmington Wedding Photography, Jesse Stephenson Photography, Wedding Preparation, Wedding dress photos, Bridal Photography

The same is then repeated for the groom.

Tyler and Cody wedding

We had a fantastic beach wedding with Tyler and Cody at Ft. Fisher.  The impending rain held off just long enough for them to get married, and then had a beautiful sunset for the reception at Bluewater.  What a great group of people!  congratulations guys.  Ft.
