interview with Aldabella Photography Ffor Holly’s hot wedding tips


morning Lindsey it’s so good to have you here on holly’s hot wedding tips from Aldabella photography so you have wonderful marvelous things to tell us all about weddings I want to start with what common mistakes do you see couples making when they get ready for their wedding I would say the number one thing that we saw when we owned a photo lab a couple years ago prior to really diving into weddings was unfortunately we were doing a lot of editing for folks that had used a friend or a family member for their wedding photography and so when we closed our our photo lab two years ago we decided to go back into weddings and the reason we went back into weddings is because of how important those images are two people and how much we saw Brides working to really kind of restore the images that had been that had been messed up by a family member or friend who didn’t know how to truly photograph a wedding so that would probably be the biggest mistake that I see folks making is just hiring a friend or a family member to do the photos what’s the best tip that you have for a couple planning a wedding understanding the difference between a wedding planner and a wedding coordinator a lot of times people will when they come to us to hire us for photography first thing I asked them once we start going down the path of the wedding planning process is who their wedding planner is and typically I get the answer of I’ve got an on-site coordinator and they’re going to do everything while truly understanding the difference between the coordinator and the wedding planner and your wedding coordinator is going to help with the day of services they’re going to make sure that everything’s running properly at the venue that there are no venue issues that their staff is doing what they’re supposed to be doing a wedding planner really truly does plan the whole day for you they’re the ones in charge of making sure the tables are set making sure your vendors arrive on time they’re the ones that if a tie doesn’t show up with one of the groomsmen’s tuxes they’re the ones trying to get that tie for you so they’re really in charge of making sure that that day runs smoothly as possible excellent what don’t couples know about wedding photography that they really need to know the number one thing i would say for brides that are getting ready to hire a wedding photographer is really understanding that that wedding photographer knows how to shoot in any aspect meaning you really need to be asking a wedding photographer can I see an entire wedding from start to finish can you share another bride or grooms gallery with me and as a professional wedding photographer I automatically offer that to all of my brides and grooms because I want them to see how well we shoot not only outside but how will we shoot inside because a lot of your venues are dark as soon as those DJ lights turn on and the lights drop for dancing you really need to have a photographer that understands how to transition from shooting a ceremony and not only shooting a ceremony but maybe shooting a highlight ceremony meaning a ton of Sun or even you know there’s there maybe you may be getting married in a wooded area so understanding shadowing so you need to have a photographer that understands how to shoot in every aspect and not being afraid to ask them to share with you several weddings before you hire them what things to a bride and groom not know to think about for when they’re planning their wedding I would say a couple of things making sure you do dry runs making sure that you’re doing your hair and makeup far enough in advance one of the things that we always recommend for our brides when they do their engagement session we actually recommend that they go and they get their hair and makeup tested at that point because early enough helps you to know not only whether or not you’re the look that you thought you wanted is the look you actually want for your wedding day but it also allows you to see it in your engagement photos so you can really analyze whether or not that’s what you want to do for your wedding it also helps you to know if you’re allergic to the makeup I actually had an allergic reaction to aveda I’m very allergic to a lot of plant-based products and evade I broke out six months prior to our wedding so it was great that I did a run-through also making sure that you that you’re practicing and you’re doing your dancing prior to a lot of people want to come into their wedding and they want to have these phenomenal dances but they don’t practice far enough in advance and really making sure that you guys are are not only practicing but practicing far enough in advance to ensure that you’re an expert when you get out on that dance floor and you really know what you’re doing the other thing I would say is when you’re interviewing for even your videographer so when you’re vide when you’re interviewing your videographer ensuring that they have the proper equipment a lot of times we come on site and Brides will tell us yes we have a videographer and they’re not truly a videographer there’s somebody that is is getting into the industry which is great but they truly don’t have the equipment to make videos that are quality videos for your wedding what’s the most unusual wedding you’ve ever done we just actually had a wedding published we’ve been published in in a couple countries and we’ve been published multiple times we just had a wedding that was published it was absolutely beautiful it was a victorian wedding and it was gorgeous lots of lace very very detail-oriented with not only the table coverings but all the way down to the cupcakes and so the cupcakes had lace on them the cupcakes were done so beautifully that they matched all of the tiny antique pieces that were on the guests table on the gift table the the lace that overlaid the table that the cake sat on it was just from from the bride’s dress which was of course lace it was beautiful as the Justin Alexander was a 1900 style dress but all the way from the Justin Alexander dress into the table decorations and down to the cake and the cupcakes all matched each other and that had to do with not only the wedding planner helping with that but just truly the bride’s vision of taking the pinks and pastels that she wanted in the purple pastels that she wanted and really incorporating everything that she thought her wedding should be and the planner just did amazing job putting it from the bride’s vision into the final product and it was absolutely beautiful that’s great you mentioned being published so you are a published photographer in addition to many other awards you want to tell me some about that ah sure we don’t like to talk about ourselves too much but um we have been we have been published multiple times we’ve been published in four different countries and we’ve been published over 30 times in multiple avenues whether it’s been the knot or internationally they call it across the pond I’ve learned as we start to as we start to move down this path of being published but it was actually suggested to us by a wedding planner that hey just go for it and one of the hardest things as an artist is truly taking your vision and and we know that we love our work and we know that our get our clients love our work that’s why they hire us but to put your work out there to be judged by people that you’ve never met and that you don’t know whether or not your quote-unquote good enough it’s really one of those things that makes you realize okay I’m gonna trust that this is okay and I’m going to trust that you know the awards that we’ve won on weddingwire the awards that we’ve won locally that it’s not just local people that love us but that people in this industry that really truly value photography and art in itself they love it as well so it’s been a really it’s been a cool adventure to to kind of go from doing this as a small little husband and wife business on the weekend to really truly doing it as a full-time wedding profession and getting to know all the vendors in the process that’s been wonderful working with all of our vendors and seeing them get published so it’s been a really fun a fun little adventure for us that is so amazing what is the most memorable weddings or the most yes what are the most memorable weddings you’ve ever done um we we are we absolutely love our brides and grooms we have a connection with them that is it’s one of those things we go through the hard times and the easy times with them we have been with brides from the moment that they say I do and the moment that they’re vowing to live the rest of their lives together and we’ve been there for the loss of their first child we’ve been through all of it and so it’s one of those things where you really truly gain this connection to your brides and grooms that you don’t you don’t realize that you’re going to connect with them in a way that you do but you’re capturing the most in two-minute personal moments of their entire lives and it’s there’s something to be said about that so each and every wedding is so near and dear to our heart but I would say the one thing that we’ve loved we we’ve done multiple destination weddings we have a couple more this year and the only reason i say destination wedding is you have this chance to really get to know the family and so one that we did just a few weeks ago we’ve done three Mexico weddings and have loved all of them but it really reminded us that we get two to three days to spend and really get to know our bride and groom on a different level and we get to know their family on a different level and it’s just it it’s different but each and every wedding is so special to us that there’s there’s aspects not only to the wedding but what happens after the wedding that are truly important as well so yeah thank you again Lindsey this was amazing what wonderful photography tips
