How Important are the Details?

It’s time to get down to business again.  Wedding season is in full swing and all the details are being finalized as the important day quickly approaches.  So, how do you know if you are missing anything?  Why in the world would a photographer bother talking about silly little details such as toasting glasses, gift card holders and even table settings.  Seriously.

Let me give it to you straight.  It really is a very simple formula that has worked for us for many years photographing brides and grooms.  A Happy Bride and Groom  = A Great Celebration.  A Great Celebration = Amazing Images.  (Here is where it gets interesting)  Amazing Images = A REALLY HAPPY Bride and Groom.  

Now, I am aware that we are not part of the detail planning that goes into selecting all the little parts and pieces that go into your wedding.  But, I can tell you that our brides and grooms contact us on a regular basis to discuss many of these points of interests and traditions.  Our planning sessions have been so successful in helping our couples work out the wedding day timeline and visualize how everything falls into place.

Don’t forget that there are so many other resources of guidance that can help in every way.  Wedding Coordinators and Event Planners such as Lora Ward and Kendra Pfeiffer are just two amazing ladies that give you support and direction you shouldn’t live without.  They have resources and experience that can help make your planning and wedding stress free as well as a truly enjoyable experience.  Color matching, sizes and shapes of center pieces, linens, table placements, favors, etc. are just a few of the many details of your day. 

Other professional resources include florists, Dj’s, and on-site coordinators.  Kelly at Monte Verde Inn and  Harmony at Citizen Hotel both have years of experience taking care of their brides and grooms down to the very last detail.  They are experts at their locations and know how to make your day absolutely fabulous.  Let your professional vendors take care of you.

Here is where we step in.  Of course, our role is to capture the memories of your labor of love.  However, many of these details play an important role with the flow of your day.  We can’t start pictures if your flowers are late.  Nothing is worse than the groom’s suit not fitting or having the wrong vest and tie color.  Where are the customize engraved toasting glasses as the Champagne is being poured?

The point is… we are documenting your own moment in time.  Your very own piece of history and new family traditions.  Every detail you dreamed about sharing with family and friends are going to be part of your wedding album of memories.  Don’t miss out on these important images. 

Have fun with the details and let everyone involved help, including your friends and family.  We will be there too.  Making sure your toasting glasses are filled and the candy bar is topped off.  Who wouldn’t want that job?

TnT’s Spectacular.


Absolutely Stunning!  But did anyone expect anything less from our loveable Tracy?


As promised, we wanted to highlight a few favorite images from Tracy and Tim’s Spectacular Wedding at Arden Hills Country Club.


One of Tracy and Tim’s favorite selections for their dessert of the night were the amazing Cup Cakes by Carissa of Sugar and Spice.  The presentation of the eight tiers was outstanding.



The Wedding Planner and “Right Hand Gal” to our fabulous couple was Kendra of Pfieffer Event Planning.  One of Kendra’s perfect attention to details showed in the spectacular Candy Bar with every combination of flavours and “Eye Candy” you could imagine.


We are still working endlessly on the final edits for this amazing event, but how could we leave you without an image of the infamous Manolo Blahnik shoes that were notorious in the ever so popular “Sex and the City The Movie”.
