"Sono una fotografa sono sempre stata attratta dai dettagli apparentemente insignificanti nella vita di ogni giorno, da quelle piccole cose che la rendono così speciale. Soprattutto durante i matrimoni "i vostri" dettagli fanno parte della "vostra" storia d'amore, la storia del vostro giorno, da condividere con i propri cari per molti anni. Per catturare i momenti importanti di quel giorno, seguite questi 5 consigli. Riunite tanti piccoli oggetti come l'invito e le partecipazioni, ma anche il menu, il libretto della messa e i biglietti del tableau. Chiedete al vostro fiorista di farvi recapitare tutti i fiori a casa: bouquet, bouttonieres e mazzolini delle damigelle. E' il modo migliore per ottenere delle foto perfette prima che si sciupino. Se c'è qualcosa che conta davvero per voi, vi prego di farmelo sapere: il desiderio del fotografo è che la sposa sia felice. Se la nonna vi ha regalato il suo fazzoletto da tenere come porta fortuna, informatemi. Sistemate l'abito, il velo, le scarpe, la biancheria, i gioielli, ... tutti insieme nella stanza dove vi vestite, pronti per essere fotografati. In ultimo, uno dei miei dettagli preferiti è catturare il cielo. Può sembrare banale ma penso che ogni coppia dovrebbe conoscere l'esatta sfumatura di blu o la forma delicata delle nubi che era sopra di loro il giorno in cui si sposavano. Questo è un dettaglio che non sempre viene catturato nelle foto con gli sposi, ma forse è una delle cose più belle che merita ricordare."

I have always been inexplicably drawn to the seemingly insignificant details of day-to-day life. It is these little details that make a house a home. The evidence of the lives within the space. For me it is those little things that make our lives so special. This is especially true with weddings. Now certainly looking at other people's details may not always be inspiring to others, but I invite you to think about this: when they are "your" details, they are no longer things but rather part of "your" story, "your" history. It is here where the loveliness resides. Now please do not get me wrong, of course your ceremony photos, group shots and so on are absolutely important, but it is in the lovely details where your weddings photos become a visual love story; a personal history of your wedding day. One that you will undoubtedly share with loved ones and friends and perhaps children for many years to come. Here are some of my tips to help you and your photographer document the lovely details at your wedding:Gather all the paper products, of course the invitation but also anything else your can think of: your menu, the program etc. and have them in a nice little pile in the room where you are getting ready so your photographer can easily shoot them. Ask your florist to have your personal flowers delivered to your room when the photographer arrives. That means your bouquet, your bridesmaids bouquets and boutonnieres if possible.  it is the best way to get beautiful clean shots of your florals.Have your dress, veil, shoes, lingerie, jewelry etc. also put together and ready for your photographer. If it is organized it is easier for everyone.If there is something that really matters to you, please let us know. I think I can speak for all photographers when I say, we want you to be happy. If you grandmother gave you her grandmother's handkerchief to carry down the aisle, pretty please tell your photographer. Last but not least, remember to enjoy every moment of your wedding day. It is so fleeting, sometimes the details your photographer captures will surprise you in how much they move you later. One of my very favorite details to capture is the sky. It may seems simple and perhaps unrelated but I think every couple should know the exact shade of blue, or the delicate cloud formation that was above them the day they committed their lives to one another. That is certainly a detail that you cannot take with you and perhaps one of the loveliest things to be reminded of, of all.
