Planning Your Event
Many couples place a high value on a more intimate wedding ceremony. In fact, intimate weddings and elopements have become a trend. There is a lot to be said for planning a more simplified, less stressful event and having the time to relax and visit with all your guests! Portraits by Thom specializes in the unique niche of Intimate Weddings and Elopement photography.
There is an old saying that there are 20 “must-have” photos for any wedding. Carol and I will need a specific list of photos you desire. If you decide to have us photograph your Intimate wedding ceremony or Elopement, we’ll need to create a detailed list so no meaningful images are left out.
Traditional photos include the preparation of the bride and groom, small details, the dress, shoes, the rings are a must-have for sure, the FIRST LOOK, private pre-wedding portraits of the couple and special guests if you like immediately after the first look, photos from the ceremony and of the venue. Just let us know in writing what photos are most important to both of you!
During the ceremony and preparations, I will continue to shoot photos to try and capture candid photos in between. This is where the most magical moments happen! Carol and I believe there is no “one size fits all” ceremony, we are open to your unique ideas. If you have any, please let Carol and I know.
