Portfolio - Choosing Your Wedding Photographer (Part 1)

This week we are talking about the photos. What is your wedding photography style?

Do you like light and bright or darker and dramatic? Do you like a perfectly posed image or something with a little more movement? There’s no right or wrong answer but the answers will help you find the wedding photographer with the right portfolio for you.

A New Space, A New Chapter

It's been a few months since we moved out of the Photographer's Studio and things have been a bit quiet around here. First it was back to school, and now it's been all about getting in and getting the new space ready. 

We've spent the last few weeks patching, prepping and painting the walls, replacing trim, picking out furniture, moving in and more but it's almost done!

 

Today I'm thrilled to invite each and every one of you to join us in studio on Saturday November 25th from 4:00pm - 9:00pm to check out the new space, catch up on what's new, and celebrate the start of a new chapter in our journey.

 

 

I can't wait to see you there! 

Hop over to the facebook event to RSVP or email me at info@rebeccanashphotography.com

Can't make it? Make sure you check out the Event Page too, I'll be sharing photos and live videos from the event.

Winston Churchill on Speeches

This past week has been a week focused on creating content for upcoming in person events and videos too. I have been giving a great deal of thought to the topics I want to discus and the length of the talks too. How many topics should I fit in? How long should each be? If I am given a 90 minute time slot, how much should I cover and when is it too much? I came across this quote in my researching this week from Winston Churchill about giving speeches. 

At first I just had to laugh, I never would have thought about it quite like that but then again he has a point right?

To me, there is so much more this could be applied to. Speeches, videos, blog posts, sales pages, emails meetings and even conversations. You always want to appropriately cover your topic and the info that needs to be shared while still keeping it interesting and leaving room for questions - how else will you engage and know what your intended audience needs?

Why printed photos excite me in a way that digitals never do

This post has been on my mind for quite a while but I kept putting it off for one reason, I am hugely passionate about this topic and just didn't know where to even start.  

As a photographer, you don't have to convince me the importance of an image. It's a moment captured in time. It's a person captured just as they all for all time. It's a memory that you can see, that you can share. If you have ever had a photo taken or taken photos of any sort yourself, you already know there is magic there.

Where things seem to get muddy is what to do with them after they are taken. 

 

Today i'm here to beg you, please please PLEASE don't let your memories grow up to be jpegs. 

 

The point of a beautiful photograph (whether a portrait, a beautiful landscape, or photographs of the moment you said I do) is to enjoy it. To let them transport you to another place an time. It's a reminder of something (or someone) pretty awesome in your life. You need to be able to touch it, to hold it, and to cherish it every time you see it hanging on the wall or open the pages of an album to it.  

 

There's nothing like holding in your hand a moment that has forever changed you. Tangible proof right there of beauty, strength, and love. Printed images are just more real, more relevant, and more valued.

On another note...

Modern technology has made it easier than ever to grab a quick snapshot of a special moment. We take a million photos today on our phones and cameras to remember a moment or share with someone who isn't there to see it. It's amazing!

 

The question is...What about when you upgrade your phone? What about when your laptop dies? What happens when your hard drive doesn't work? What happens when you no longer have a way to read that disc of images? 

 

So many people are losing years, decades even, of important memories in the blink of an eye. We can't let that happen anymore. Why?

 

If we don't start printing our images, We risk becoming a missing or forgotten generation.

 

If we don't start printing our photos (and labeling them) we will become the generation that is missing from the history books not just in classrooms, but in our families too. Our children will look back on who we were, and won't have anything to look back and remember us. Our Grandchildren may never believe we were ever young. They won't know who were were, what we did, who we loved.

So please, print your most precious images. Frame them. Put them in an album. Create a special place for them. Make them a part of your life today, and a part of your legacy for tomorrow.

Jenna & Tom's Fanshawe Engagement Portraits

You know when you meet someone and you just hit it off. This couple was like that. You could feel right from the get go that Jenna & Tom were going to be like that.

This couple is fun loving, enthusiastic about everything they do and have a fabulous sense of humour. I couldn't have been happier to share a beautiful morning with them at Fanshawe Conservation Area here in London capturing their engagement portraits.

It took 3 tries (thanks torrential downpours) to make this this fun loving couples outdoor portrait session happen, but third time certainly is the charm!

 

A little more about Jenna & Tom in their own words...

We've known each other since Elementary School

How did you meet?

Tom and I grew up a literally a block apart from each other, after Tom moved into the area when he was in grade 6.

Jenna- I think it took us both awhile to decide on FOREVER, our friends and family seemed to notice it before us. After moving to the other side of the world and realizing how we always had our great adventures together, I knew I had to come home and be with him to continue our great adventures.
Tom- When she decided to come home from Australia to be with me.

Tom - 'No day is ever boring'
Jenna- ' The things we do together, and of course being amazingly handy is always a bonus'

A Snowy Engagement Portrait Session with Kaitlyn & Ryan

After the session had concluded we trekked back to the cars and began a new adventure this time filled with cars stuck in the snow, car problems and tow trucks. Not the way we planned things but I think we can safely say it's a session neither of us will forget too soon.

Stepping into the Frame for my own Wedding Day

There's that old saying ' always a bridesmaid, never a bride '  well for me it was more like ' always the wedding photographer, never a bride ' but on Oct 4th that all changed. On October 4th I put on my own white dress, smiled in front of the camera, and arm in arm with my daughter and my dad walked down the aisle to say I do to the man I love.

I am still overwhelmed by the emotion of the day, the experience of it, and the connection I have to the images of that day. (*Don't worry, much more coming about the whole experience soon, stay tuned*)
