WHAT I CATCH ON YOUR BIG DAY…
I am literally with you from the early morning of your wedding day to the late evening hours of your reception shindig. Only Michael Santos Photography isn’t all in your face paparazzo style the whole time. For most of your day, you’ll hardly even know I’m there snapping away. That means a weight off your shoulders and lots of time to spend focusing on making sure your big day goes smoothly.
I start the day by photographing you getting ready. Don’t worry. This is all very much G-rated and I’ll make sure to capture your pretty face only after you’re all done up. Think detail shots of your fragrance du jour, you slipping into your beautiful shoes, a crowd of happy bridesmaids in their slouchy sweatpants and impeccable hair. The same is true for the men, too. I’ll capture them fastening boutonnieres to their lapels, candids of dad giving the groom some sage advice and groomsmen laughing it up while the women get ready.
When you book your wedding photography with Michael Santos Photography, you’ll also get formal and informal portrait shots. That includes those gorgeous bridal portraits, handsome pics of the groom (perfect for propping up on your work desk), group shots of the entire bridal party and all the family portrait shots you could ever want. I like to do a mix of both casual and traditional for these shots.
Ceremony and Reception
Of course, I also document your entire wedding ceremony and reception, complete with all those big — and small — moments that must be caught on film. That includes walking down the aisle, the big kiss, the officiant speaking, musicians playing, and family and friends listening/watching. I’ll also capture all those fun and heartfelt moments at your reception, from tearful and hilarious toasts to some mad dancing skills to cake cutting and beyond.
Rest assured I’ll capture all those details you planned, as well. You spent good money — and time — planning your special day; I’m here to make sure it’s documented beautifully. I’ll photograph the tiniest details on your wedding favors, the sugary flower ornaments on your cake, the lanterns hanging in the trees and anything else you thoughtfully included.
Depending on the package you choose, I’ll also be there for other moments leading up to your wedding day, including the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, bachelorette and bachelor parties and even your wedding or bridal shower. Check out my package guide in this magazine for more information.
