The most exciting part of a wedding day for us, is during the days preparations. This is a time where we photograph the interactions betweens the brides family and bridesmaids are they prepare for the marriage ceremony. During the prep we capture a variety of emotions and details that set the pace for the entire day.
We photograph the brides gown, jewelry and tender moments of the bride and her parents typically filled with emotion. Capturing tears of joy, laughter and the anxiety leading up to the wedding ceremony provides for compelling photographic story telling.
Not to overlook the importance of the groom, his parents and groomsmen, we also capture the same feelings and details during the grooms prep. The groom and groomsmen photos provides a different side to human emotion. The groom is typically just as nervous leading up to his wedding day, but use funny antics and joking around to hide their stress.
The wedding day prep which usually takes place in separate bridal suites is the first chapter that sets the tone for the wedding day. Additionally, this is when we really have the opportunity to look into and become an integral part of our brides and grooms lives and wedding.
Depending on the wedding day timeline, we take the opportunity to create beautiful portraits of the bride and her bridesmaids before the wedding. We use the background and atmosphere of the hotel or resort where they are doing their wedding prep. We carefully plan this time, so that the bride and groom do not cross paths before the wedding. We create beautiful portraits with our distinct and unique style of photography that has made use the biggest and most trusted name in wedding photography in Boca Raton.
We also create strong masculine portraits of the groom and groomsmen to create a complete collection of photos that tell both sides of the bride and grooms wedding day story.
When we are photographing the bride and groom separately before the ceremony, our unique photography style truly shines.
The wedding ceremony is the most critical part of the wedding day. Photographing the bride and groom as they say their vows and officiant carries out their duties is where many candid photos of the couples emotions and interactions take place.
During the ceremony is when photojournalism become the predominant photography approach. There is no way to pose, direct or instruct the bride and groom as their ceremony is taking place. It is also important to work in a clandestine fashion to be unobtrusive or distracting the the family and guests in attendance.
Wedding ceremonies take place in a variety of locations in Boca Raton, Florida. Couples may choose a beachfront wedding ceremony at the Boca Raton Beach Resort, Golf Course at the Waldorf Astoria Boca Raton Resort and Club, the intercostal at the Waterstone Resort and Marina, a Garden setting at the Addison, or in one of the many houses of worship throughout Boca Raton.
After the wedding ceremony, wedding portraits are typically taken with the bride, grooms, bridesmaids and groomsmen. We also include close family members and friends to create wedding portraits before setting off to a location to photograph the bride and groom.
When working with the bride and groom during the wedding portrait portion of their wedding day, we use a mixture of fashion and editorial photography to create spectacular and dynamic photos that will become heirlooms. Depending on the couple we are working with, we may take and illustrative photography approach that is photojournalistic with a bit of direction to create really beautiful pictures.

During the cocktail hour is when we slow our pace and prepare for the reception. We do photograph the bride and groom as they interact with family and guests to capture laughter and the ambience of the event. The cocktail hour is a great time to capture fun and memorable candid moments.
Another task we take on during the cocktail hour is the decorations, flowers and tables in the reception space. This is a very important portion of our wedding photography coverage that can never be missed. Brides and grooms want beautiful well exposed photos of their wedding reception space before the guests enter to see what it looked like undisturbed. Capturing these detailed images of the floral design, decorations and ambience show the style and theme of the brides and grooms wedding.
The wedding reception begins with introductions of the bridal party, parents and now married couple. The celebration of their marriage begins with a first dance as man and wife. As the bride and groom perform their first dance is when we use a photojournalistic approach to create beautiful photos of the bride and groom, as family, friends and guests look on in the background. Using a variety of lighting techniques we capture beautiful unscripted tender moments, as the bride and groom share their emotions and joy with each other and their guests.
The reception continues with the bride and groom performing dances with their parents, before speeches and other wedding ceremony traditions. We typically grab the bride and groom before dinner is served to quickly take cake cutting pictures which is a traditional photo couples want in their wedding albums. The couple doesn't have to cut the cake, since most venues will cut the cake and serve slices of it to the guests in attendance.
After dinner is served is when the wedding celebration really begins with music and dancing. We candidly photography the bride and groom as they dance the night away with their guests.
When night falls during the wedding reception with will usually get the bride and groom to create some portraits at night. We use a variety of lighting and backgrounds to create dramatic wedding photos with the moody backgrounds, or ornate locations most photographers overlook during a wedding day. Couture Bridal Photography is listed as Boca Raton's top wedding photographers for the most unique and stylish portraits taken during the reception when sneaking away from the festivities with the bride and groom.
After the wedding and all out photography gear is packed up, the most important part of photographing a wedding takes place. Immediately after arriving home or to our hotel room in the case of a destination wedding, we back up every wedding photo to multiple hard drives. We also secure the memory cards to create multiple back ups of every photograph captured during the wedding.
Once the images are backed up to create multiple copies, we begin the editing process. Using a variety of photo editing software applications, we view each photos and correct color, exposure and remove images that aren't absolutely perfect.
