Why is wedding photography so important? Your wedding day is all about you and your finance. Wedding photography is what captures this special day. It captures the memories, the feelings, and the love you two have for each other. It tells a story, but not just any story, it tells your story. It outlines your love and the journey you two are starting. Here at Nicole Mense Photography I pride myself in my ability to capture these beautiful moments and bring out the joy and emotions you two are feeling. A wedding is about more than just one day. It is about a lifetime of memories and the journey you two are embarking on. Wedding photography is about being able to relive this important day, feel the emotions you felt, and seeing the emotions your family and friends felt over and over again long after the wedding day is over. Wedding photography is about capturing the beautiful moments of your special day and providing you with a story you can show to your kids, grand kids, and great grand kids. It is about providing you with a story you can treasure forever.
Why are engagement photos important? I understand, you are busy planning a wedding and you might not feel like you have time to get engagement photos done, but this is a time for you to relax, enjoy the time with your finance and leave the worrying up to someone else. Engagement photos allow you to get a practice run before your big day, they allow you to get more comfortable being in front of the camera and help you to get to know your photographer. This time you spend before your wedding day allows me to get to know you and your finance. I am able to pick up on how you interact with each other, find your quirks, and your individual personalities. This allows me to be able to capture moments on your wedding day that are special to just the two of you. Getting engagement photos done also helps you to become comfortable with my photography process, everything we do to prepare for your wedding day is done to prepare for your engagement photos also.
Engagement photos allow you to have professional photographs of you two before the wedding. This is important because you can talk with me about the poses you love the most, and the ones that might not be your favorite. This gives me an idea of what to focus on for your special day. Once you have your engagement photos there is an endless amount of things you can do with them. We will sit down together and i will help guide you through all these possibilities.
Heirloom & Legacy Storytelling
I believe that every couple deserves to have their story told in such a way that when they are five, ten, thirty years into their marriage they can come back and remember how they felt every step of their day. From seeing each other the first time, to her walking down the aisle, and the joy of that first dance as husband as wife. This is your special day and I have then honor of providing you precious imagery in heirloom products you and your family can enjoy for years to come. My average couples invest $4000 in our heirloom experience. I believe in luxury printing of your wedding portraits. There is nothing like the joy of seeing your images come to life within your home, enjoying your images day after day on your walls or in a album.
I get asked many times, why did you choose photography? It's pretty simple really, because of what I am able to provide to you. I chose photography so I could provide my clients with memories that will last a lifetime. I was you to be able to treasure the small moments in time, remembering them forever. Photographs allow you to do that, they allow you the ability to remember that specific moment, that specific place in time. Ultimately that is our goal for you, provide you with something you will have and treasure forever.
