SHY HEART STUDIOS Wedding Photography
Meet our friends at Shy Heart Studios – wedding photography experts! This fantastically warm and friendly team of professional photographers have been working with our Wedgewood couples, providing wedding photography services! We had the pleasure of catching up with them to talk about their experiences and working as a preferred vendor with Wedgewood wedding couples!
Are there different styles of shooting couples? What are some trends that you are seeing?
Absolutely. Each couple is unique and we tailor our photography style on a certain level, to fit the couple. If we have a couple who is full of energy and excited to be photographed we match that excitement with a style that really showcases them. If we have a couple who is mellower and low key when it comes to being photographed, we emulate that in their photos. We do our best to capture the varying personalities of our couples. We even match up our photographers with our couples based on their personality style to really further these goals.
What is your favorite part of the wedding day?
We love photographing the bride and groom getting ready, and of course their “romantics” (bride & groom portraits) whether in a first look or after the ceremony, or both! These are the segments where our unique style really shines through.
Are there certain shots you like to capture most?
We love to capture the moments no one else sees; the little things like a stolen kiss on the cheek during a toast, or the quick nose nuzzle shared during romantics. It’s the moments between the moments we really love. While we excel at directing our clients in a very natural way, they often surprise us by adding their own twist and we love being able to catch that.
Do you have a favorite Wedgewood location to shoot couples?
We love each Wedgewood venue for various reasons. Each property is so unique and each has its own little golden nugget where we always get our best photography work!
What can a Wedgewood couple expect when they meet with you for the first time? What do you like to know about your couples before you shoot them?
They can expect to begin an instant relationship with us and more often than not, a friendship. We pride ourselves in being able to connect with each and every couple and having them truly feel that we are there to serve them and make sure their day is captured as perfectly as possible. We always like to know how our couples are feeling. Whether they are excited, calm, anxious, etc. It helps us to facilitate the next moments when we understand how you are feeling and can work to either encourage it, or adjust it so that you can relax.
What do you like about working with Wedgewood?
The staff! No matter which Wedgewood property we are on we know we are in good hands, and working with team players. Everyone has the same goal – to serve our couples – and when we are working with Wedgewood we are all one flawless unit.
Are there things that you would like to try in 2016?
We are seeing a trend we REALLY love: Unplugged Ceremonies. While this is entirely up to the couple, it’s something we are very big fans of. More and more couples are seeing the problem with electronics at weddings. All of the guests are trying to take photos or video on their cell phones and are not truly enjoying and taking in the sacred ceremony that is happening right before them. They are too concerned with posting photography on Facebook that, let’s face it, and are NOT great photos. Not only have that, but they very much affected the professional photos that you have paid for. We have had so many moments ruined by a big purple iPad sticking out into the isle, or cell phones blocking the faces of adoring family members. We have even had unfortunate moments like missing the grooms expression, or the first kiss, because guests jump in the way at the last second, not realizing they are preventing us from capturing that moment. You have paid good money for professionals to capture your day, leave it to them! There is nothing their cell phone will capture better than our gear, with our talent and knowledge. So when clients ask us about unplugged ceremonies, or surprise us with one, we are ecstatic!
Do you have any funny or interesting situations that you have experienced?
There are too many to list! One of our recent favorites was a Halloween wedding where guests were given the option to wear costumes. That, in and of itself, was very unique! But what’s more, is there was a guest who came and sat near us as we were changing lenses and prepping for the next event at the reception and just started doing yoga. We literally turned around and this older gentlemen was laying on the floor in the happy baby pose RIGHT next to us. He also turned out to be the most epic dancer of the night.
