The Andaz Maui at the Wailea Resort is the perfect exclusive location for a beautiful and private elopement. We had the absolute delight of capturing Andrew + Bev on their very special day to celebrate their love and new life together.
Between the guest list, designing invites, and the dress fittings, let's face it, planning for your big day can be a bit overwhelming. With the hundreds of things on your check-list you're looking to get done, there's an underestimated yet essential key to your wedding that you'll be thankful you were well-prepared for. Your professional wedding photography!
The artists of Coral by Pacific Dream Photography are here to provide you with a team of professionals to ensure we give you all the preparations needed for a collection of memories you won't soon forget.
Collect Ideas with an Open Mind
If you're like a handful of ecstatic bride-to-bes, you've most likely started your Pinterest board to start browsing for your wedding inspiration. While looking for decor, color palettes, and dresses, pay attention to the photography you come across and notice if something catches your eye. Getting ideas can beneficial, but keep reminding yourself that they might not turn out exactly like you had envisioned. Be open to trusting your photographer! Ultimately, the professional photographer you hire knows what will look best, but chances are they're willing to try an idea for a photo that you might have your heart set on.
Make a Shot List for Your Photographer
Bridesmaids, groomsmen, flower girls, grandma and grandpa, there's typically quite a variety of wedding party and family members that you'd love to capture group photos with. Sit down with your future husband/wife and create a shot list together to establish the photos you know you'll be wanting for the day off. It's okay to mix up combinations while in the moment (chances are you might get some photo bombers here and there from your wedding party), but make sure you have a flexible outline of the priority shots you won't want to miss. Go over the list with your photographer before the big day and rest easy knowing you won't miss a memory!
Take Your Couple Portraits Privately
It's the day that you two have been planning for months now and you wouldn't want any stress on your face to show through the photos! If time permits, pull your soulmate aside for a quick walk with just the two of you before you begin your portraits with family and friends. Bring your photographer with you and let them capture you two privately without the pressure of by-standers watching. By doing this, you're both allowing yourselves to sink into being present together. The photos will feel more carefree, effortless, and natural and you'll be thankful for having those few extra moments of privacy on your big day before returning to the fun and excitement!
Don't forget that the most important part of making your wedding photography a great success is to have fun and enjoy yourselves! It's always great to have a few candid photos of you and your loved one on your big day.
Here at Coral by Pacific Dream Photography, we would love to capture your special day with the same enriched beauty that your perfect day will hold.
