I love wind, I love dark skies, I love waves... not everyone's cup of tea, but it sure is mine.  side note: If you don't mind messy hair, if you love storm clouds, if you don't mind getting dirty, if you love adventure... I'm the photographer for you!)  We ended up getting some amazing beach shots that night, and then we kept our reschedule date for their main event Bannockburn trail. 

I love what we ended up getting!

Kate and Christian: An Elsie Perrin Williams Estate Wedding in London Ontario https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/8/kate-and-christian-an-elsie-perrin-williams-estate-wedding-in-london-ontario Christian and Kate are one of the most easy going couples I have met, the one thing that truly mattered to them on their wedding day, was getting married, everything else is just fluff!  When Kate looks at Christian, her eyes light up, even after all this time together. I'm sure you will see exactly what I'm talking about in these photos!

They planned a stunning morning wedding at the Elise Perrin Williams Estate in London, Ontario.  This place is absolutely breathtaking, those leaded glass windows just make me so happy inside, I had to shoot portraits in there, even though it was such a beautiful day outside! The bonus about having a morning wedding is that you can have breakfast as your meal! Omelette bar, waffle bar! Yum! 

I am totally in love with how their images turned out, hope you love them too!

Rockwood Conservation Engagement: Kristin + Adam https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/7/rockwood-conservation-engagement-kristin-adam Kristin and Adam: Engaged

by Kitchener wedding photographer, Amy Taylor

 

Kristin and Adam were neighbours, living a few doors down from each other. Mutual friends of theirs thought they would be a good match and that they should meet, but they actually ended up talking through an online dating service first, as many these days do.  As luck would have it, they couldn't get enough of each other and decided to meet for a date. After dinner, bowling and their first dance (die a happy man - seriously how cute?) they knew there was something there.  They have many hobbies together many of them outdoorsy activities, in fact Adam even proposed while they were hunting!  They even have matching bow and arrow tattoos, check them out in the last image! We knew that we were looking for a beautiful outdoor location with lots of greenery and settled on the beautiful Rockwood Conservation Area near Guelph, Ontario.  This was my first time shooting at this location and I will most certainly be back here, I have to say it's one of my favourite locations to date!

 

           I am in love with their engagement session, everything about it is lovely, the location, Kristin's amazing dress (I almost died when she pulled it out of her backpack), their chemistry, all of it, super amazing!  I can't wait for their outdoorsy wedding this fall, I just know it's going to be a blast!

Ontario waterfalls engagement session: Katherine and Scott https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/7/ontario-waterfalls-engagement-session-katherine-and-scott As a Kitchener wedding photographer I am always looking for amazing locations for engagement sessions. Location hunting is actually one of my favourite parts of the job. Epic loves deserve amazing locations to show them off.  Wedding days are so regimented and on such a tight timeline that there often isn't a good opportunity to go somewhere extra special for portraits. So when it comes time to plan the engagement session, I always like to make sure that we go somewhere special. 

Katherine and Scott decided on Rock Glen, near Arkona Ontario.  Typically it is an overcrowded location with people flocking to the waterfalls in the summer months, but we got super lucky and got it all to ourselves for a while.  Typically we would then hike out to the river, but with the excessive rain we have had the river was so high it didn't work as a location anymore.  We raced against the sunset to find an alternative location and settled on a beautiful orchard with some gorgeous lighting, we really couldn't have asked for things to turn out better! I am so happy with how they turned out!

Kitchener wedding photographer Amy Taylor: Nicole + Brian: Engaged https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/7/kitchener-wedding-photographer-amy-taylor-nicole-brian-engaged Nicole and Brian first met at a parenting group for parents to make friends.  When they first met Nicole was actually dating someone and Brian was just getting out of a relationship, but they became friends as part of their group.  Over time Nicole developed feelings for Brian, they were on a camping trip with their group at the pinery when she first knew that she was in love with him, but she didn't think he was interested or looking for a relationship so she set her feelings aside.  Then one day, she posted (what I assume to be) an awesome photo of herself on Facebook and Brian commented about how nice she looked in it.  They started chatting and one thing let to another and they were setting up play dates for their kids, after a few play dates, Brian finally asked her on a date.  Nicole says she remembers the moment clearly, it was May 12, 2011 and she was standing in her parents kitchen when she got the text message.  She jumped for joy and had a perma smile for days. (How adorable is that?). Their first date was to the Pinery Provincial Park, and that's when Brian knew he loved Nicole as well.  They both fell in love at the same place, just different times.  Brian surprised Nicole one day while she was coming home from college with a trail of rose petals, leading to him on one knee, asking her to spend the rest of her life with him.  She said yes!

Over the years they have built a family together, and a life together and this is the year that the stars have aligned that they are actually going to tie the knot!  They can't wait to make it official, with a long engagement and life sometimes getting in the way, all these two want is to be married, they already know they are going to spend the rest of their lives together.

 

Here's a snippet from their amazing engagement session at the Pinery Provincial Park (of course).

Cate and Trent: Adventure Session Elora Gorge https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/6/cate-and-trent-elora-gorge Adventure Sessions with Kitchener Wedding Photographer: Amy Taylor

As a Kitchener wedding photographer,  I am so blessed, there are so many amazing places to explore for portraits.  Most of the time the average wedding day doesn't really allow for travel time to get to these amazing places, or frankly even to take photos at the best time of the day (evening).  That doesn't mean you can't have amazing wedding portraits though!

 

So what can you do?

Well, set aside some time to take a break from the reception to head out with your wedding photographer to take some amazing sunset images.  Your wedding day is a really long day filled with lots and lots of people, why not schedule yourself a bit of a break away from everyone to relax with your new spouse. Cuddle up, nice and close, and enjoy your first sunset together as a married couple, while your wedding photographer captures it of course.  Whether it's 15 minutes or a half hour, it can be a nice breather and a way to gear up for the party.  Why not get some amazing images while you are at it?

 

What else?

Well I know that not every wedding photographer offers this, however, I love amazing portraits, I love adventuring and I love hanging out with my couples. My largest package, also includes an adventure portrait session.  What on earth is this?  This is a chance to get all dressed up again and hop in the car and go on an adventure together.  Hike to an amazing view, chase waterfalls, whatever your heart's desires!  When booking this package you can relax and know that on your actual wedding day you can spend more time with your guests.  It's also a bit of an insurance policy against bad weather ruining your wedding day portraits! Can't decide on how to do your hair? Don't choose, choose one for the wedding day, one for the adventure session!   

 

I am so excited to be offering this additional service for my clients, I really do love a good adventure, and combining my love for adventuring and my love for couples photography is really the greatest way to spend a day that I could imagine.

 

Wanna go for an adventure?  

 

Amazing bouquet: Flowers and Finds, Cambridge

Grand Bend Beach Engagement: Kelsey and Mike https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/5/grand-bend-beach-engagement-kelsey-and-mike When it came down to planning Kelsey and Mike's engagement session, it seemed like a no brainer to go to the beach.  They are getting married at Kelsey's family's cottage outside of Grand Bend, Ontario, so it made sense to do the engagement session at Mike's parents cottage just up the road.  Spread the love a little bit!  They wanted to head to the bush first for a few with their best friend Molly.  Since we were going to be at private cottages, I knew this was my chance to finally do a beach campfire shoot, I've been wanting to do one for years.  I asked Kelsey and she agreed it was a go! 

 

The day finally came and the weather wasn't exactly the greatest forecast one could hope for, but we figured we would go ahead and hope for the best.  When we arrived to the beach it decided to pour rain, we were a bit skeptical but still had hope. 20 mins later we are down on the beach, we got about 15 minutes into the shoot when it started raining again.  We almost called it quits, but again, had hope.  I'm so glad we did, we got the most unique sunset I've seen in a while.  While it isn't the typical Grand Bend sunset, it was certainly fun and different!

Christian and Kate's Elora Gorge Engagement Session https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/5/christian-and-kates-elora-gorge-engagement-session Christian and Kate's Elora Gorge Engagement Session

By Kitchener wedding photographer Amy Taylor

 

When I first met with Christian and Kate, they weren't sold on the whole idea of having an engagement session. When I explained why they are such a great idea and started listing off places that we could go for the session, they changed their minds!  As it turns out, one of my favourite locations the Elora Gorge, is also one of their favourite places to spend the summer.  If you have been to the gorge then you know why, the tranquility and the sound of thje flowing river is enough to relax anyone.  If you are looking for more of an adventure you can also rent a tube and tube down the river!  

After our time in the gorge, we had planned on walking around the adorable town of Elora. Much to my surprise most of the cute parts of town are now under construction to build the amazing new wedding venue the Elora Mill.  If you are planning a 2018/2019 wedding and you are a lover of cute old towns and epic portrait locations for wedding photography, then you must check this place out.  I would absolutely love to photograph a wedding there, I am all about this town! 

Once I got over the heartbreak of the town being under construction, I was able to put my location scouting goggles back on and find us some other cute spots for photos, you seriously can't go wrong taking photos anywhere in Elora, it is a photographer's dream location.   

 

Here are some of my favourites from the evening I spent with Christian and Kate! I can't wait for their brunch wedding this summer!

Wedding Day Timelines https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2017/3/wedding-day-timelines-how-to-create-the-perfect-one-for-your-perfect-day Wedding Day Timelines

Creating the PERFECT one for your SPECIAL day

Amy Taylor - Kitchener wedding photographer

 

When it comes to planning your wedding, your timeline, is quite possibly the least fun thing to plan.  However, if you want your day to run as smoothly as possible, it is definitely worth sitting down and figuring one out.  A timeline will vary for a lot of people based on what is more important to them on their big day, these are just some of the things you will want to take into account.

 

 

BRIDAL PREP

Everyone does things differently, sometimes the bride is the first to have her hair and make up done, other times she is the last to have her make up done.  Make up and hair often takes longer than you think so keep that in mind when planning the day.  How does your dress do up?  Corset back? Buttons? Zipper?  Putting your wedding dress on and making sure it is perfect also takes longer than you think it will, especially if you have a corset back and no one knows how to do up a corset!  If having a button up dress, make sure you have one of those handy little button aids to help speed up the process.  

 

LIGHTING AND WEATHER

I'm a photographer, lighting is super important to me, but here's why you should care about it too. As I'm sure many of you know, the best time of the day to take photos is the two hours after the sun rises and the two hours before sun sets.  If you are wanting golden hour lighting for your portraits, then keep this in mind.  Also keep in mind that the time the sunsets in July is not the time the sunsets in November.  Take a look at the time the sun sets on your wedding day.  Now when planning your ceremony time, keep in mind you likely don't want to get married in the dark (or maybe you do!), and if you are planning on doing portraits after the ceremony we need there to be light still.  Ideally we won't be doing the bride and groom portraits in the middle of the day when the light is harsh either, something in the middle is perfect.  Your photographer will be more than happy to help you out with this!

 

TRANSPORTATION TIME

Unless everything is all in one place, you will also have to account for the time it takes to get between places.  How long is the drive from where you are getting ready to the ceremony location?  Ceremony to photo locations? Photo locations back to reception?   Also keep in mind what traffic may be like on that given day as well.  Build this into your timeline.

 

CEREMONY TIME

There are a lot of different types of weddings out there, the most popular seems to be the 3-4pm ceremony start time.  However, there are some really fun options out there, Brunch weddings, sunset weddings, each has their own advantage and have disadvantages as well.  Maybe you have booked a venue that does multiple weddings a day and your ceremony time is set in stone and you will have to base your day around that.  Length of ceremony is something to factor in as well, is it a quick 20 minutes ceremony or a long traditional ceremony that takes an hour or more.

 

FIRST LOOK

Another thing to consider when planning out your timeline.  Will you be doing a first look before the ceremony?  If you haven't heard of this, it's when the bride and the groom see each other before the wedding, usually a private moment between the couple (and photographer). These can be great for a few reasons.  First, it can be really relaxing for couples who may have some nerves about public appearances.  Second, you can make it super romantic!  Spend some time together talking, exchanging gifts perhaps, or sharing a few special words that you might not want to share with all your guests at the ceremony.   Also, it gives you the opportunity to do the portrait part of the day before the ceremony, so when the ceremony is over you can join your guests and enjoy cocktail hour and get to the party!  A first look may or may not be for you, there certainly are some benefits so give it some thought.

 

 

FAMILY PHOTOS

Many bride and grooms like to do family photos on the wedding day.  It is usually easiest to do them directly following the ceremony while all members of the family are still all in one place. Make sure you ask everyone ahead of time to hang back for family portraits, so they don't go skipping off to the bathroom or off to the cocktail hour.  Depending on how many family groupings you are doing, family photos can take anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, averaging around 30 minutes. I always start with the large groups and work my way down in size.

 

 

BRIDE AND GROOM PORTRAITS AND WEDDING PARTY PORTRAITS

I personally like to start with the large wedding party photo. From there I like to do the groomsmen and then the bridesmaids.  Girls, unfortunately in this case it's best if you go last, the guys lose interest in doing photos a lot quicker than women do and it's super hard to get men motivated to pose for photos when what they really want to be doing is getting to the party.  Ladies, you are much more tolerant, so thanks for making the photographers job a little bit easier!  Usually the wedding party photos can be done in as little as 20 minutes.

 

Now for bride and groom photos, I prefer to work with just the couple so we can get these done as quickly as possible and get you to your guests as fast as possible.  These photos will take at least a half hour, ideally we will have an hour or more together and will have some time to go around to different locations to get some variety in the images.  When figuring out timing for this portion, consider location of where images will take place.  Are we going to be out in the open or are we going to be in the shade,  if we are going to be out in the open then you will want the prettiest , softest, most flattering light possible and will want to avoid doing these portraits mid day, in the middle of the summer that time range would be from 11am until 5:00 pm, in the spring or fall that time would be 11-3:30.  That's not to say that we can't do them during that time frame, it's just that the lighting won't be as ideal as it would be later (or earlier) in the day.   If your timeline doesn't allow for you to do the bulk of your portraits during the more ideal lighting times, consider scheduling 15 mins or so after dinner that you can sneak out for some gorgeous evening light portraits.  It's a nice chance to again have a few minutes away from the crowds to enjoy your new spouse and sneak in some kisses and cuddles.  Check what time the sunsets that day and ideally schedule your break away at least 15 minutes before the sun sets. (keeping in mind that it takes longer to escape your party than you think it will).  

 

 

DINNER TIME ( OR BRUNCH TIME)

What time will the meal be served?  Will there be appetizers during cocktail hour?  If you are doing appetizers you won't need to be in such a rush to start dinner and may be able to push it back a half hour if you need to if you are choosing to do your portraits after the ceremony.  Serving and eating dinner will take longer than you think, if you have a large number of guests and are doing buffet style, it will take a while for everyone to go through the line.   Ask your caterer how long they think the meal will take for the number of guests you are serving.  PRO TIP  If you feed your photographer at the same time you are eating, they will be done eating and they will be ready to get back to work in time for speeches.  

 

 

TOASTS

Before dinner, after dinner, during dinner, during dessert, there are so many options these days of doing things  Do what works best for you!  Depending on the group of people, these may be short and sweet, or they may be long winded filled with slideshows, or maid of honour rap tributes.  Just keep in mind they may take longer than you think they will.

 

 

CAKE CUTTING 

If you are getting a cake and want people to watch you shove cake in each other's faces, consider cutting the cake while everyone is seated and you already have their attention, either after your entrance or after dinner and before toasts.  This way you could use your wedding cake as dessert as well! 

 

 

BRIDE AND GROOM TIME

Wedding day's can be really hectic, it may feel as if there are so many things to do that you don't get to enjoy your time with your new spouse on the first day of your new journey together.  Make sure you set aside some time where you can have a few private moments to enjoy each other's company. Whether you have the DJ play your second favourite song for you to dance to during the reception.  Or even sneak away with the photographer for those sunset shots and take a few extra minutes to make your way back to the party (this of course is the photographer's recommendation lol).  Whatever you do, make sure you have time to enjoy your new spouse!

 

 

THE PHOTOGRAPHERS TIMELINE

How many hours have your hired your photographer for?  What are the most important parts of the day you want captured? Not really into the getting ready photos, that's fine, have your photographer start once you are dressed and ready.  Love those getting ready images?  Fabulous, so do I!  Ideally, I would show up when the bride is having her hair done, this will give me lots of time to photography all the accessories and dress in time for the finishing touches with makeup.  I will ask for all the accessories that are going to be photographed - bouquet, jewellery, ALL wedding rings, purse, perfume, an invitation, anything special that is pretty!  (For the guys, I ask that they would have shoes, tie, special socks, cufflinks, watch, anything of that nature ready for me to quick photograph.)  First I shoot the details and then I will check in with the bride and see how she is coming along, we won't start photographing until the finishing touches usually.   Keep in mind that if there is only one photographer they need time to be in both places to capture both bride and groom getting ready, if there are two photographers, great, maybe they can split up.  Is there a time when the photographer can get to the reception hall for untouched detail shots, keeping in mind the time that the reception room will be fully decorated, flowers delivered and set up. That beautiful head table, the beautiful place settings, the cake, all the little details you have been obsessing about for months, is there time in your photographers schedule to go and shoot those things without having the room filled with people?  Cake cutting, first dance, are these things you want photographed?  If so make sure you schedule them in to be done before your photographer is done for the night.  Are you planning a sparkler exit that you want photographed?  You don't have to do it at the very end of the night, twilight is a really nice time to do it so there is a bit more natural lighting.  Also if planning a sparkler exit, please let me know ahead of time, I have lots of tips for you!

 

 

All in all, there are a lot of things to consider when planning your wedding day timeline, if you have hired a wedding planner for the day, they will certainly have lots of great ideas to help you out.  Your photographer will have some suggestions as well.  Just remember, the most important thing is that it is your wedding day, and you are marrying the person of your dreams, make sure it's a day that you will enjoy!

2016 Favourites https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/12/2016-favourites 2016 was a fantastic year for me. It was a year where I decided to shoot more of what I love, in places I love, the way I love doing it.  As a photographer I am paid to photograph my clients, the clients ultimately decide what they want for their shoot.  So what happens with all the ideas that are filling my head, all the creativity that wants to get out?  Well this year, I decided to let some of it out! Man did it feel good, and I can't wait to spend time in 2017 doing even more of it!

Here is a short collection of some of my favourite images from the year. Some are my favourites because of the people in them, some because of the light, some because of a moment captured. 

 

Hope you enjoy!  See you in 2017!

Inspired: Myrtle and Moss Workshop Toronto 2016 https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/12/inspired-myrtle-and-moss-workshop-toronto-2016 I have finally gotten around to having time to even look at the images I was able to take at the Inspired workshop this summer.  I had the most amazing time with Angie McCabe of Myrtle and Moss Photography.  Angie has long been a source of inspiration for me, not only is her newborn work impeccable, but her work with couples is beyond amazing.  I'll be honest and say that I decided to sign up for the workshop, just to work on my newborn photography, as I had decided that newborns are what I love and what I want to specialize in.  However, when I left the workshop, I had been forever changed.  Not only is my passion for working with newborns just as strong or stronger than ever, but I have a new found love of working with couples.  Watching Angie work her magic with couples has inspired me to look at things with new eyes, through a new lens, from a different perspective than before.  I have never been drawn in to images where people stand and look at the camera and smile, it has never made me feel anything.  But watching Angie shoot to tell a story with her images, seeing how images produced with this mindset has made me feel something when looking at images again.  I have learned that I want to be a story teller, that I want people to feel things when they look at their images, I want clients to remember what they felt in that exact moment when the photo was taken.  I have come away from her workshop a brand new photographer with a new found love for shooting couples, expecting couples, engaged couples, freshly married couples.... I want to shoot them all!  Thank you Angie for sharing your talent with me. 

 

The following images were taken at the workshop, styled and posed by Myrtle and Moss Photography, shot and edited by me.

Engagement Sessions 101: All about planning your engagement session -Kitchener Wedding Photography https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/12/engagement-session-101 Engagement Sessions 101: All about planning your engagement session

Amy Taylor - Photographer at Amy Taylor Photography is a Kitchener based wedding photographer

Engagement sessions are probably my favourite type of session to shoot.  For me it's really important to get to know my brides and grooms ahead of time. Getting to know each other ahead of time really makes the whole wedding day more enjoyable.  Less worries about who you are working with on the day, less anxious about being in front of a camera, and understanding the posing process a bit can really make the day less stressful and more enjoyable.

I know often times, the engagement session is the first time a couple has been photographed together professionally.  Often times, the engagement session is in itself a nerve wracking experience, not knowing what to expect, and knowing that you are the star of the show can be enough to make anyone nervous.  So allow me to ease your nerves a bit and explain the process a bit more in depth!

Planning

I'll admit it, by nature I'm a bit of a planner. I like to put things in place to ensure that things go smoothly, once the magic starts happening, then I like to follow it wherever it takes us, but let's set ourselves up for success shall we?

Location, location, location 

First thing to plan is location. The location you choose sets the tone for your entire shoot and can say a lot about you together as a couple.  Are you both coffee snobs? A funky coffee shop that has a cute little table by the windows is sure to be a great place to begin your shoot.  Outdoorsy?  Put on your hiking boots and head somewhere amazing, Ontario is filled with outdoor treasure to discover.  City slickers? (yes, I just said that, I'm from a super small town surrounded by farming so I think I can get away with it).  Let's head to Toronto, maybe over to Toronto Island, with amazing views of the city in the background, or the historic distillery district, or find a rooftop with sweeping views of sky scrapers surrounding us.  Homebody? Look no further than your couch! Let's start by cooking something yummy in the kitchen and having a glass of wine, then head to the couch for some snuggle time, maybe end the session drinking tea and reading books all cozy in bed. In home engagement sessions are starting to become very trendy!  Fun loving?  What about a local fair, or a record store, nothing is really off the table!  

Attire

The second most important aspect that needs planned is wardrobe.  Wardrobe helps pull together the whole mood of the shoot.  I always like to recommend you have 2-3 outfits for your shoot, variety is the spice of life.  It is important to keep in mind that wardrobe should compliment your location in some regard. For example, what colours will go well with your location, what style of clothing will compliment.  When it comes to planning your session, keep in mind that it is okay to treat yourself to a new outfit every once in a while, especially for photos that will last a lifetime!  I like to recommend at least one casual outfit, and then something a little nicer. How often do you get to get all dressed up and have your photos taken?  By no means am I recommending that you put on a ball gown if you are the type of girl who wears jeans every day. I want you to be comfortable and feel like yourself, just a shined up version of yourself!  When you are picking out your outfits, you don't have to match, in fact anything too matchy matchy looks forced and unnatural.  Instead, try to find outfits that complement each other!  When it comes down to what exactly should we wear, lets first talk about ladies and then the men!  

Ladies, if you are having a make up trial done, this is a fantastic day to do it, may as well make good use of the trial! Also don't forget to remove any old nail polish or have a fresh manicure done, we will be showing off your new bling.  For your casual outfit, it is nice to have it be a bit more stylish than your regular everyday clothing, accessories like jean or leather jackets, hats, scarves and footwear are a great way to pull an outfit together.  When thinking about colours for this outfit, colours that tend to look best in my types of sessions are neutrals and earth tones as I am usually shooting in nature.  Colours that should be avoided are neons (always), pastels (mostly), bright Easter egg like colours, they just really don't flow well with most of the locations we may be shooting at. When looking into your fancier outfit choices, make sure you check out the hashtag #atpcloset on instagram, I try to keep up with hash tagging the clothing that I have purchased for my client closet, so be sure to check that out or ask me about anything specific, you may not have to go shopping at all! If you do decide to go shopping, things to look at are maxi dresses, skirt and top combos, or you can go all out and get a glamorous dress and have your man wear a suit if that's your thing!  I usually recommend that you keep your skirts or dresses long because short dresses limit the posing that we can do, it makes fun things like piggy back rides, being picked up or even just sitting on the ground a bit more limiting because we always have to be careful about making sure things are covered.

 

Guys- For the guys, again stick to neutral coloured clothing (jeans included in that) and earth toned colours. For shirts, I recommend avoiding anything faded, with a logo, most patterns, most plaids (exception would be flannel, lumber jack style plaid for a hipster look), and stripes.  I find that pants work best, even if its summer, unless you have a beach shoot or river session planned then I would avoid shorts (even pants are fine at these locations).  Types of tops that look best are nice button up shirts - not dress shirts but nice casual button ups, they can be worn done up, or can be left open with a t shirt on underneath. Plain neutral or earth toned coloured t shirts are good, long sleeved sweaters are great as well.  Footwear for the men is very important as it is for the women, running shoes, crocs, sports sandals aren't a great look for photos.

 

If you are having your session done in the winter, though I do try to aim for a warmer day so we don't have to wear coats, consider that your coat may be photographed as well, so make sure your coat and winter boots are nice. Accessories like hats, mitts and scarves are great for these sessions too! 

Posing

Let's be honest, this is the part that scares people.  Posing is hard, "I don't know what to do with my hands", if you know where that quote came from then we will get along just fine!  You don't need to be a professional model to look fantastic in your photos, let me assure you of this.  My approach to posing is fairly simple, I prefer more natural posing, and natural expressions.  My approach is to put you in certain positions, and then give you direction to hold each other in a way that feels natural.  From there I may refine a hand placement or two, I may ask your partner to be to whisper something funny in your ear to make you laugh, or whisper something sweet like a favourite memory from a date.  My approach is to place you in situations that are flattering to the camera, and to try to elicit natural looking emotions.  It really isn't that hard, basically cuddle your cutie and think about how much you love each other! Your job isn't to be a model, your job is to enjoy your time with your partner and to trust that the person you hired to photograph you wants you to actually like your photos, so is being diligent in ensuring that everyone is looking their best.  I am sure you have glanced at my portfolio if you are reading this blog, a lot of my posing is quite romantic in nature, so people who aren't comfortable with displays of affection will need to let me know ahead of time.  I do not do a lot of everyone look here and smile perfectly at the camera shots, I will do one or two but that is not what most of the session is about. I am aiming to capture the connection between you and your partner, I want you to be able to see the love you have for each other when you look back on your images.  

 

 

Lighting

Lighting can be a tricky one to plan, as we are dependent mostly on nature for that part, clouds and overcast days provide a whole different lighting situation.  If you find yourself being drawn to sunset images and the beautiful light that golden hour brings before it, then you will need to schedule your session during that time of day.  I prefer to schedule my engagement session two hours before sunset generally.  I also love a good sunrise session as well, something magical happens when the light first comes out for the day.  If you are choosing a city location amongst buildings then earlier in the evening is best as the light is lost much earlier when surrounded by tall buildings.

Sarah and Chris - Collingwood Engagement Photos https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/10/sarah-and-chris---collingwood-engagement-photos Sarah and Chris had an epic engagement in Collingwood. Chris proposed on a rainy day on the overlook bridge at the scenic caves in Collingwood. He even had a go pro set up to capture the proposal, but a rain drop ruined his plans!  Collingwood is a special place for them as they celebrate their anniversary there every year.  

As lucky would have it, I wasn't available the evening they were engaged, but I loved the idea of the session so much I had suggested a sunrise session.  Sunrise would mean that I had to get up at 3:30 am and scout locations for sunrise in the dark.  It was quite the mission, but I was up for it! I found an amazing side road, and things turned out pretty good if I don't say so myself!  There may be nothing I love more than an epic adventure session, the thought of them gets me excited and thoughts start rolling in my brain faster than I can keep up with them sometimes.

Samantha and Kyle - Elora Gorge Engagement Shoot - Kitchener Wedding Photography https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/10/samantha-and-kyle---elora-gorge-engagement-shoot A few months ago, I ran a contest for a free engagement shoot! Samantha and Kyle worked their butts off to get the most votes to win.  The shoot was for a secret location, that I promised would be worth the trip!  The Elora Gorge never disappoints me!

The day ended up being a bit cool, but they never once complained!  Cool weather just means you have to snuggle a bit closer, these two didn't complain too much about that!  Here are a few of my favourites from their beautiful engagement shoot!

Jessica and Matt... Engaged! https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/10/jessica-and-matt-engaged When I first met with Jessica and Matt, I wanted to make sure they really looked at my work before they booked me.  She said, oh I have looked, and I really like the dark, moodiness of a lot of your images.  It was then that I knew we would most likely be a great match!  

We went to Rock Glen in Arknona for their engagement session, and boy did we go on a hike and there were a lot of stairs involved, but it was oh so worth it! 

 

Can't wait for their wedding next fall!

Wedding Day Images from the Marriage of Kyle and Sheree https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/10/wedding-day-images-from-the-marriage-of-kyle-and-sheree When Sheree and Kyle first asked me to photograph their wedding, I couldn't have been happier.  Sheree is one of my favourite co-workers and I have worked with her, Kyle and their daughter Sophie on numerous occasions, and was thrilled to get to capture their big day for them!  At our pre wedding meeting, they invited me to their home and I was so flattered to see images I had captured for them printed huge on their walls!  What a wonderful compliment that was. There is no better compliment to a photographer then to get your images off the computer and onto your walls or into an album for you to enjoy on a daily basis.

 

Sheree and Kyle were married in a beautiful indoor ceremony at the Arden Park Hotel, in Stratford, Ontario.  What a convenient location this was, with the beautiful park just around the corner we were able to quickly get some beautiful portraits done.  Sheree and Kyle’s big day was a beautiful day to be apart of, as they declared their commitment to each other and their family in front of their daughter Sophie and their friends and family. From Sophie putting on Mommy’s dress before mommy did, to their speech during the ceremony to Sophie, to their first dance as a family, there so many sweet moments made for their family.

 

Vendors used for this wedding:

Venue: Arden Park Hotel, Stratford Ontario

Dress: Designer: Mori Lee from Sophie’s Gowne Shoppe in London

Flowers: Lyric Flowers in St Mary’s

Jenna and Tim Tie the Knot https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/9/jenna-and-tim-tie-the-knot Jenna and Tim were a fabulous couple to work with. From their engagement session in the spring to their wedding in July each time they were so much fun to work with.  The way these two look at each other is absolutely beautiful, but see for yourself!  My fav looks are when Tim sees Jenna up on the alter and when I catch Jenna watching Tim give his speech at the end of the night, the look on their faces is pure love!  

 

Special Thanks to my second shooter of the day Kelsey Oke for capturing a couple of these beauties for me!

What to Wear for Your Family Photos - Kitchener Family Photography https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/9/what-to-wear-for-your-family-photos Family photo season is upon us again! I thought that I would get ahead of the game this year and answer your questions ahead of time!

What should we wear for our family photos? What photographs best?

Well I am so happy you asked, what you choose to wear for your family photos really does matter.  If you are going to invest your money in family photos then spending a bit of extra time carefully selecting your outfits and perhaps even purchasing a few new items, will really make your investment that much more beautiful.  

Let's start with what doesn't look good.

  • Everyone wearing the exact same outfit i.e. jeans and a white t shirt, or khaki's and a white t shirt, or jeans and a black t shirt.  Your family doesn't wear the same outfit every day at home, there is no need for you to do that for your family photo. 
  • Neon anything is always a no no, it doesn't photograph well and is hard to match.
  • Clothing that doesn't fit well. Clothing that is too tight is not flattering and clothing that is too loose and baggy isn't flattering either this applies to adults as well as children. I know that typically clothing bought for children is on the larger size so there is room to grow, but this is one time where you really do just want clothing that fits well.  
  • Clothes that are worn out, faded, dirty or have holes.
  • Character t- shirts for the kids or t shirts with writing on them, these are distracting and take away from your beautiful faces
  • Burnt skin - please make sure to wear sunscreen in the days coming up to your photography session, no one wants to look like a lobster in their photos.

 

Well dressed family for family photo Things to consider

  • Picking a colour scheme.  I usually recommend that people try to coordinate, and not match exactly.  I like to choose two coordinating colours and then add in one to two neutrals depending on family size. Each family member should have two of these colours in their outfit whether its a scarf, a colour in a patterned dress/skirt or shirt and pants.
  • What is your home decor like? Are you neutral and classic or are you filled with sprit and love warm, bright colours? Both can work if done the right way!
  • What is the location like? A colourful, spirit - filled wardrobe is fabulous for a colourful city shoot this is a place where your amazing cobalt blue dress, or your kelly green jacket are going to look their best.  Doing your photos in nature? Colours that actually exist in nature look best. For the fall think cream, browns, navy, maroon, dark muted reds, mustard yellow, olive green, burnt orange.
  • Layers and Accessories: Accessories really help pull things together for a coordinated look, scarves, jewellery, tall boots, hats (not ball hats, but stylish ones),  cute shoes, blazers, jackets, and vests.  While we are on the subject of accessories, giant flowers the size of a babies head take away from the cute baby, they don't distract from the fact that your baby doesn't have hair yet, it actually draws attention to it.
  • Limit patterns.  Patterns are great in a small dose, a flowered dress is amazing, but a flowered dress and plaid don't exactly mix well together. Try to limit to one pattern, or for larger groups two similar patterns i.e. two similar but not exactly the same plaids or two florals.
  • Textures: Textures go along with layers, leather boots, cute fur vests for little girls, flannel plaid on a man or boy, having varying textures adds dimension and a natural feel to your images. 
  • Footwear matters!  Timeless looking footwear looks best, save the sneakers for working out, save the crocs for gardening and bumming around, save the light up shoes for school.  Family photos are the time to break out your nice shoes, think solid coloured shoes.
  • Think classic and timeless.  We want you to enjoy these photos for years to come.
  • Think "Sunday Best" - I know the notion of Sunday Best has gone a bit out the window, people don't attend church as often and churches have become much more relaxed with what is acceptable to wear. However, it is okay to dress a bit nicer than you normally would for your family photos. 
  • Stores that carry collections.  There are a lot of stores that carry lines for mom, dad and the kids, if you are considering buying a few new pieces, sometimes sticking to one of these stores can help you coordinate items! Sales people love it when you actually let them help you, so let them!  Stores that are great for this are The Gap, Old Navy, H&M (excellent spot for family photo clothes), ZARA, and Joe Fresh at Loblaws grocery stores .  Your clothing doesn't need to be expensive.  If you are planning on doing your photos in the fall, then saving one of your kids back to school outfits to use for family photos and planning for it to be one that matches the whole family is a great way to justify the purchase!

 

Last Minute Prep​

  • Plan your outfits ahead of time, this will give you lots of time to make sure everyone is coordinated, also this will ensure that what you want to wear is clean and wrinkle free for the shoot, nothing worse than realizing the outfit you had planned to wear is in the dirty laundry bin.
  • Make sure kids have had a good night's sleep and a nap if needed before hand, also as photo time is usually in the evening, ensure they have been fed before. Tired and hungry kids don't always love having their photos taken.
  • Make sure that kids have clean faces and combed hair, avoid messy snacks in the photo outfits before hand.
  • Remove any cell phones and keys from pockets before the shoot, bulges in pockets look awkward in photos.
  • Do you keep an extra elastic around your wrist? Does your daughter? Make sure you remove these things before the shoot.

Styled after wedding session with the newly married Adam and Tamara Pri https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/8/afterweddingsession Why would anyone ever be interested in an after wedding session?

1) You get to wear your wedding dress again. (should I stop there?)

2) Your wedding day schedule may not leave you much time for wedding portraits

3) It could rain on your wedding day! You could have your heart set on sunset photos and not get them that day, you can reschedule your after shoot to a day it isn't raining!

4) You may have been looking at wedding photos and wished that you could have photos at a waterfall, or on the edge of a cliff, or somewhere else cool that may not be feasible for your immediate wedding day, after shoots are meant to be done in cool places!

5) Wedding photos are typically done in the middle of the day when the light is at its absolute worst for photographs, your after shoot would be schedule for either sun up or sun down and the two hours either after or prior... Giving you the prettiest light for your photos possible!

 

Before wedding season began for me this year, I thought it would be fun to shoot wedding portraits in a location of my choice, when we weren't limited by a wedding schedule and could take our time and have fun.  I put out a model call and found Adam and Tam, I had a great time working with them and was really happy with how they turned out.  Check them out!

Why I'm not a lover of mini sessions https://www.amytaylorphotography.ca/blog/2016/8/why-im-not-a-lover-of-mini-sessions I know, I know, it sounds pretty straight forward here, but read on!

First of all, what is a mini session you ask?  

A mini session is typically a 15-20 minute session that scheduled back to back with other clients on one day. A photographer may see anywhere from 6-20 different clients in one day.  These are often done around holidays, and sometimes they even have a theme i.e. Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day, even lemonade stands.  They are priced lower than a photographers normal rate because the photographer is shooting several clients in the same time frame, which makes them attractive because of their lower price.  Many clients choose to do photos several times a year with whatever fun set up a photographer may be doing that suits their fancy, that's great! We love photographing you and your family!

 

That sounds great Amy! Why on earth would you not like that?

Well, it is amazing to get to meet so many new people in a day, it can be so overwhelming that if I'm honest, a lot of time I end up forgetting clients names before the day is even over. Does that say great customer service to you?  I think not!  That is not how I set out wanting to run my business. 

You bring your kiddos to a strange person's home with fancy outfits on, bribe them with some sort of a treat after, introduce them to some lady they have never met before,  tell them to go sit on this elaborate set up, expect them to ignore all the cool props that are just sitting there, begging to be played with, and tell them to sit still and smile for the stranger with the camera.  Sounds easy enough right?  Well... Sometimes it is! Sometimes kids have been properly bribed and they do sit still for their 15 minutes and smile for the funny stranger with the camera, but for a lot of kids, that's not the way it works. They get distracted, they want to play, they may need time to warm up to the stranger with the camera in order to show her a smile.  That all is perfectly normal!  So we spend our 15 minutes desperately trying to get a couple of okay shots and I'm sure when I send you your images you are a bit disappointed in them, I'm disappointed in them too!  Then I tell myself, well we only had 15 minutes, and that just isn't always enough time!  Some kids aren't best suited to a mini session, heck, some adults aren't best suited for a mini session!   

 

So what is the solution here?

 

Well, I have been thinking long and hard about what to do here.  How can I provide a better experience for my clients? One where I get to learn everyone's names, one where people learn mine, one where we are actually creating a memory together, and capturing real emotion, not just forced smiles!  I want clients to look back at their images and say, "oh look at Sally's smile here... that's the one she gets before she bursts out laughing, its my absolute favourite smile of hers".  I want to capture people being themselves, interacting with their family members, and creating memories they will cherish for years to come!  Is this done in 15 minutes? Is this done at a strangers home?  It can be for some kids, but what I want to do is create unique and authentic experiences for clients, that just isn't done in 15 minutes.

 

I know that people are going to be disappointed. I know this may mean I may lose some of my clients to other talented photographers who are offering these types of sessions, and that's okay, I will miss you so much, but when it comes down to it I understand.

 

My hope is that instead of coming to see me 2 or 3 times a year for a cute themed session that will end up on your fridge for a little while, or maybe even make the front of a card; that you will come to see me once a year or every other year even, for a full session, that is catered to you and your family, maybe in a place you like to spend time together as a family, maybe a place you haven't been before, or maybe even in your home in your living room or jumping on your bed!  I want to create something unique for you!  My hope is that instead of ending up on your fridge, that our photos will end up on your walls, or in an album, somewhere where you can cherish the memories that were made that day for years to come. My hope is to be able to provide a better customer experience, where not only can I remember everyone's names, but that we get to know each other a bit, and most importantly that we have some fun together making memories.

 

So with all of that being said, I will no longer be offering mini sessions, full sessions only.  In the future this may change, I may find a cool location and decide to offer 30 or 45 minute limited edition sessions, but for now I want to focus on how I can give my clients the best possible images and the best possible experiences. I'm excited at the new direction I've decided to take my business in.  It has been my absolute pleasure to work with so many amazing families and children over the last 3 or 4 years and I sincerely hope that we get to work together again! 

 

Let's make some memories!

 

Amy
