Hey there! I'm Linda! I was born and raised in Maine, spent the last 6 years in Portland, and now call the Boston area my home!
Most days you can find me playing on the floor with my daughter, writing love letters to my husband, and reading with a cup of tea!
I am mostly known for being able to find all the things my husband has lost, making as much food as I can from scratch, my obsession with chips and salsa, and my mad organization skills.
If you look at any wedding blog, more often than not the most popular images you are going to be looking at are the details. It’s not usually the couple or the wedding itself but the details. Isn’t that wild?! I wanted to take some time today to explain WHY you need time for the details to be photographed on your wedding day!
Let’s think about it for a second. When you’re planning a wedding, after you get all the big stuff out of the way (venue, photographer, DJ/band, florist, etc), you then start planning the details. You think about all the things that are unique to you both as a couple. You think about the things that matter to you for a good time. You’re thinking about the aesthetic and vibe that you want to have for one of the most special days of your life.
All of those feelings are translated in the details.
This is why I LOVE photographing details on a wedding day because these are the things that YOU have hand picked as a couple to include in your wedding! Without these details your wedding day wouldn’t be the same. Don’t get me wrong, at the end of the day the absolute MOST important thing is the marriage you’re beginning together. But the details are what you’ve spent a lot of time, energy, and money on over the course of several months so they deserve to be photographed!
When I arrive on a wedding day the details are the first things I photograph, so it’s important to have these ready! Then as the day goes on, I’ll grab all the details at the ceremony site and the reception site as well to make sure your day is fully photographed. I build in at least 30 minutes to every wedding timeline in the beginning of the day and then again in the middle of the day to get the reception details. Without these, a huge piece of your story is missing!
I hope that this helps provide a little perspective on WHY you need time for the details on a wedding day!
P.S. If this post was helpful to you, then you’d probably like this post on which details to bring to your getting ready room!
