Wedding Veils!

We love when brides have veils! We get to be a bit more creative, and lets face it, veils are just gorgeous!  If you are going back and forth on whether or not to have a veil, think of having one maybe for just a few of the creative shots. The longer the veil, the more creative we get to be with our angles. Hope this gets you inspired with some creative wedding photos!!!

Tip of the week - vendor relationship

Hey everyone! Going into 2015, we have decided to do a "tip of the week" for all of those couples out there getting married. We know there is so much information on the web, but we figured to give you a vendor perspective which will hopefully help you during the wedding process! If you have any questions or a topic you would like us to cover feel free to email us at info@pagesphotography.com.

This week we have decided to go over the importance of your relationship with your vendors.

Wedding vendors all play such an important roll in your wedding day, and you want to make sure you have a solid relationship with each and every vendor. So many times, our couples end up making choices based on price, which we completely understand because weddings become very expensive but that can not be the only reason why you hire them. We highly recommend our couples to sit down and have a meeting with each vendor in person. You need to feel confident in everyone you hire and you need to connect. If you connect, everything will be smooth.

This is especially important when you are hiring your wedding photographer and videographer. Your photographer and videographer are the people you will spend your entire day with. They are with you from start to finish, so you want to make sure you feel comfortable with them and most importantly, that they have the same vision as you. Your wedding day is the most important time in your life, and you are choosing people to capture every moment, and re tell your story after your wedding. You want to know that you can laugh with them and feel your best around them as well as know that they will get everything done and capture every detail of your day.

The engagement session is such an important tool to use when hiring a photographer. If you loved your engagement session, and they made your feel comfortable in front of the cameras, that will be the exact same experience you will have on your wedding day.  If something was off, go with your gut and try another photographer. You want to go into your wedding day with complete confidence in your vendors. With your perfect team, everyone will be on top off it and make your day run perfectly.

This is a once in a lifetime experience and you don't want money to control  who you work with. If you connect and you want to work with a specific vendor, that is what matters. Once you start your wedding planning, you will know exactly what I mean!

Good luck planning!!!

Anderson Wedding

Allie & Eric tied the knot on January 3, 2015 in the beautiful city of Santa Barbara. Allie had a whole Winter theme for this wedding, and every detail was beyond amazing! From the decor in the trees, to the snowflake bracelet and hair piece she wore, everything was perfect about this day.  They have a 13th month old daughter that had a similar dress to Allie and was pulled down the isle by the flower girl. This wedding was a truly a celebration and these to enjoyed every minute of their big day!

Laurie & Jose | Engagement

Laurie and Jose are such an amazing couple! We started their engagement session at South Coast Winery, where we were able to walk the entire winery and get some pretty amazing shots! I learned a ton about them and got to hear their story on how they met, which was a perfect fairy tail story. We even found out we knew some of the same people, talk about a small world! We then headed down to San Diego to go to Cabrillo National Monument for the sunset. Unfortunately we just missed the cut off time to head to the beach, but we found some great spots close by and I think it turned out better then we had planned! We cannot wait to photograph and film their May wedding! Congratulations you two!

Alder Family - Oceanside Pier shoot

Such an amazing day with this beautiful family at Oceanside Pier!!! The parents were so great, we hit it off right away, and their son was the cutest boy ever! He was so happy and he loved running around chasing the birds. He had the cutest smile, and he was so well behaved, you could just tell how much he was truly loved! I had such a pleasure being able to capture some wonderful moments for them, and I cannot wait to work with this family again!
