Getting married is one of the most exciting times for a bride. Those visions of how you're going to look, what dress will you wear, and all of the other pertinent information like venues and food.
However, once the big day is gone and gifts are opened, the only thing left are your wedding portraits. Many times families and brides take for granted the importance of hiring a qualified photographer to capture their family memories or more importantly, their wedding day.
North Texas Photographer Ruins Bride’s Big Day
Today, a camera can be found everywhere...even on our mobile smartphones. In many cases, many of my clients own a DSLR. However, those cameras and lenses that many own can not compare to the quality of cameras owned by professional photographers. Many clients like it when their images have blurry backgrounds and they (the subject of the photo) is clear and sharp. This is called bokeh. Superior equipment is need to acheive excellent bokeh. That's why professional photographers are so important. We're able to use tools to capture beautiful moments and give those moments pizzazz.
This is a starting image taken from my camera. As you can see it's a great beginning, but it's flat and boring. Like many with a camera, this is the way a typical portrait will look if the portrait is captured with adequate lighting. However, that's when a professional photographer is able to take images to the next level.
Would you like to see how a professional photographer would transition this basic image into a piece of art?
A few weeks ago, my family decided to take a back to school family vacation to Los Angeles. While there my husband and I decided to have family portraits taken. I contacted Katee Grace Photography and we discussed possible locations. We decided to meet at the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica and then walked down to the Santa Monica Pier. If you've ever been to Los Angeles, this differently a place to visit.
We captured some great moments. During our session, my children asked if I had any portraits with my family (as a child). Unfortunately, my family rarely (if ever) took pictures together. It's rather disturbing.
Now as an adult, I have made it a point to (at least once a year) get family portraits taken. When I'm gone, my children will be able pull out multiple pictures and sit and tell stories to their children about my husband & I and show them what we looked like. Thank you Katee Grace Photography for documenting our vacation in Los Angeles.
