The Log Cabin Wedding Photography
Galina and Jeff’s wedding at the Log Cabin in Holyoke Mass.
Their wedding was such a thrill to photograph, they were fun and relaxed to work photograph. Galinas’ dress was just stunning! I am not just saying that. Let’s here more about how Galina found her dress.
First I went to David’s Bridal, tried on 6-7 dresses, and gave up. The next weekend I went to Pearl Bridal in Holyoke. I went in and said “I need a dress for a wedding in 4 months.” They looked at me and said “okay, we got you.” The first dress they had me try on was the dress! You know it’s the one when you can’t stop smiling.
I am always excited about photographing at The Log Cabin the view is amazing and the staff in friendly and helpful.
Here is a piece of advice from Galina and Jeff.
Go with a venue that’s all inclusive except the main vendors such as photographer and DJ.
Make sure to use the wedding day photographer for your engagement sessions. That way, you’ll know their style and have a preview of how things will work the day of. Also, when they put you in seemingly awkward poses, just go along with it! Those will be some of the best photos!!
How was your experience taking photos/working with me on your wedding day?
Fantastic! You were fun, professional, and considerate of what we wanted. You were there to help capture the special moments, but when we needed a few minutes to ourselves, you let us have that also. It was a perfect mix! Your assistant was fun and extremely patient as she had to run around us several times with a sparkler! We also felt comfortable around you right away because we worked on the engagement photos together.
We did the first look. We loved it! It was easily the best moment of the whole day. We read very personal vows to each other in private during the first look. It took the edge off going forward with the day because we didn’t have to read vows to each other in front of everyone and only had to repeat the I-Do’s in front of family and friends. Once we saw each other, it was a moment of happiness and relief and it really felt like we were in it together for whatever happened that day!
For the bride, use the same make-up person for your engagement session. That way, you’ll see how the makeup turns out in photos! For someone who never wears makeup, the trial run for the engagement session made me realize that’s not the type of make-up I want on my wedding day. There is no other preparation for wedding photos. Just have fun! Don’t be afraid to be silly and sweet to each other.
