PHOTOS SOUTH FLORIDA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Couture Bridal Photography is the preferred purveyor of elegant, romantic and timeless wedding photos by South Florida's top Wedding Photographers

     Shauna and James planned their wedding at the Fort Lauderdale Marriott Pompano Beach Resort and Spa. They were referred to me by Laura Damaschin, who is the event Coordinator for the property. I met with Shauna and James and we discussed an engagement photography session and then their Wedding day photography. We set up their engagement Photography session in Pompano Beach by the Hillsboro inlet. We also included their adorable baby daughter in some of the images during the course of their engagement photography. Shauna and James wanted photos professionally take by me to see my quality of work and get a feel for me as their South Florida Wedding Photographer. 

     On Wedding day, I met with Shauna and her bridesmaids in her bridal suite with my assistant, Sandra Barzola, of Red Sands Studios. Sandra is mainly a portrait and boudoir photographer but has the skill necessary to second shoot and work with me to make sure every aspect of the wedding day is covered. She is actual quite skilled at capturing moments, but wedding photography isn't for everyone. We also met with James and came up with the plan for getting their portraits done as they prepared for their wedding ceremony and reception. 

     We started with Shauna and her bridesmaid, taking photos as they had their hair and make up done by Luisabels Hair & Makeup Studio based in West Palm Beach, Florida. We took photos as moments took place and the interactions between the bridesmaids. We also took the brides dress and rings to the resorts lobby for better light and creative photos to help memorialize the day. We then caught up with James and the groomsmen to take photos of him getting ready in his suit. Most men aren't fans of having their photos taken, but I use a method of photography that is very masculine and makes the groom feel like he's James Bond. 

     The secret to great photos as one of top rated south Florida wedding photographers it to be a photo-maker, not so much of a photo-taker. I use a photojournalistic approach to my wedding photos, but I also guide, and direct certain moments so they have the best lighting and make the bride and groom look their absolute best. 

     So Shauna and James wedding ceremony began and Sandra and I worked together to make sure we captured every possible fleeting moment with the best photos possible. We were luck to have overcast skies and a sun that put the bride and groom into open shade. This allowed the natural lighting to be quit soft and flattering for beautiful wedding photos. The wedding ceremony was emotional and very well planned. Once the ceremony was complete the guests went to the cocktail hour and We began the process of taking all the bridal portrait photos. 

      After the bridal photos were captured we went to the southeast side of the resort property and quickly created some beautiful bridal portrait photos and quickly raced back to the reception to set up for the processional into the wedding reception. As one of South Florida's top wedding photographers, I had set up the lighting I would need for the reception in the reception space on stands when we first arrived. This allowed me to make adjustments to my exposure setting for properly exposed photos. 

     The wedding reception went off without a hitch and we captured images of everyone having a great time as they entered on to the dance floor. I then captured some carefully composed photos of the Shauna and James first dance, James first dance with his mother and Shauna's first dance with her father. The wedding went off without a hitch and was amazingly planned with some incredible wedding vendors.
