I am a wedding photographer based in Fresno, CA. For the past 3 years I have been capturing adventurous love stories and helping others feel loved and supported throughout their wedding experience. If there isn't a camera in my hand, you would find me watching Friends or The Office, eating Chick-fil-A, and hanging our with my hubby and puppy.
As a photographer, I can think of several reasons why a bride and groom would want to do a photoshoot after their wedding day in their wedding dress and suit in a location of their choice:
More Time for Photos: On the wedding day, there are often time constraints that limit the amount of time to capture beautiful images of the couple. A post-wedding shoot allows for more time to explore different locations and settings and to get a wider variety of shots.
Different Location: A post-wedding shoot gives the couple the opportunity to choose a location that may not be available on their wedding day. This could be somewhere that holds special meaning to them or somewhere that is simply visually stunning. If you love the beach, let’s take photos on the beach or if you love the mountains we can go to Yosemite and capture some great photos there.
Relaxed Atmosphere: A wedding day can be a stressful and hectic event, but a post-wedding shoot can be a lot more relaxed. This can help the couple feel more comfortable and natural in front of the camera, leading to more authentic and intimate photos.
More Creativity: Without the time constraints and pressure of the wedding day, I can experiment with different angles, lighting, and poses to create truly unique and artistic images.
Preservation of Memories: The post-wedding shoot allows the couple to continue to document their journey as a married couple, capturing beautiful memories in their wedding attire that they can cherish for years to come.
Overall, a post-wedding shoot can be a fantastic way to create stunning images that capture the essence of the couple and their love for each other, while also providing a fun and relaxed experience that they will always remember.
