The guidebook - The Group Shot-kl

Good morning friends,
It’s already March and with spring right at our doorstep we are practically full speed ahead into the wedding season. Therefore, it’s only fitting to start off the last few installments of The Guidebook.

As one of those last bullet points I’d like to talk about the group shots, you might want to take at your wedding. Starting off, there are basically two different kinds of group shots. The one with all your guest in them and those of you and some smaller groupings like your parents, your grandparents, your childhood best friends and / or your favorite co-workers. Continue Reading

We are almost at the end of this little guidebook by now, and there are only two or three chapters left, but this one is especially close to my heart. The thought of dedicating a full hour (best case scenario) to do a couples photo shoot on your wedding day can seem a bit daunting, especially if you have never stood infront of a camera before.

As wedding photographers, we often throw around terms like ‘getting ready‘ and ‘detail shots’, or ‘first look’, ‘first kiss’ and ‘first dance’. As someone who spends a considerable amount of time in an industry focusing solely on weddings, it is easy to forget, that people who are still in the beginning stages of planning their special day may have never heard these terms before. Obviously most of them are easy enough to understand but the one term my clients keep tripping on whenever I mention it in a meeting is the First Look. Continue Reading

The Guidebook | #5 Hair & Make-up

Andrea Staska, Hochzeitsfotograf Linz,

When it comes to hair and make-up for your wedding day, you should (as always) consider hiring a professional instead of going to your usual hair dresser next door. Not because they are not awesome in what they do (I am sure they are), but simply because just like with anything else from photographers to florists, there is a difference between hair dresser who ‚take two centimeters off‘ day in and day out and occasionally get to do make-up or an up-do for a ball or prom, and someone who makes a living from only doing hair and make-up for special events like weddings or photoshoots.

The number one thing I wish for my clients on their wedding day is that they can fully relax and enjoy the magic of the day to the max. Obviously things can go wrong no matter how well you plan and organize beforehand, but from where I stand that’s totally fine. At least you’ll have a funny story you can tell over and over again that will make people laugh, right? Continue Reading
