"Brimming with love and happiness," is how I would describe Audrey and Vincent's wedding. It was a real joy to photograph and a great end to my wedding season this year.
Audrey is American and Vincent Belgian and in what is more of an American tradition, they decided to have a 'reveal moment' before their ceremony. This is where the bride and groom see each other in private before they walk down the aisle in front of all their guests, such fun! This in turn permitted us to spend quite a substantial amount of time before the ceremony, wandering through old town Geneva, to create a lovely portfolio of 'couple photographs'. This arrangement also allowed Audrey and Vincent to spend more time during their aperitif enjoying the company of their guests.
Couples often ask me how much time they need for their 'couple photos' on their wedding day. I always emphasise the fact that each couple is different, with specific priorities; the decision is entirely yours. It very much depends whether having more shots of you both in a variety of locations is more important than, for example, spending more time at the aperitif with guests. Of course there is always a happy medium. I would say however that the minimum time I would like to spend with you both alone would be 30 minutes and the absolute maximum 1 hour. It's completely your choice and we will discuss all the options in detail before your big day - don't worry. Of course on the day itself things may change, but please rest assured that I am always flexible catering to your wishes.
