Wedding Photography Trends in America

Weddings have become highly personalized affairs with couples competing to set their even apart from the ones that have come before.
Marriage photography in general must evolve to stay relevant and in line with the other elements in these unusual weddings. Presented here is a look at the latest trends in certain key markets around the country.
The main trend in California marriage photography is photojournalism. Photojournalistic wedding photography allows the marriage day to unfold naturally. Rather than playing an active role in posing shots, the photographer captures events as they happen.
This style of photography results in more candid and natural looking photographs. The major drawback to this style is that an inexperienced photojournalist may miss certain shots or fail to capture the shots well in the ambient light.
If you choose to go with the photojournalistic one, be certain that your photographer is experienced in this style.
The typical Utah wedding photographer will blend the new trend of photojournalism with a more timeless traditional style. The Seattle trend seems to be creating a marriage album that highlights the best of all worlds, thus offering the most complete account of your special day.
Florida wedding photography has begun to move in the direction of candid photography, which is very similar to the photojournalistic one. The main difference between the candid and photojournalistic styles is that in photojournalism, the shots combine to create a dramatic storyline. Candid photography is more laid back in style, reflecting the general feel of a Florida marriage.
The trend in Toronto marriage photography appears to be "creative candid" photography. This style is a sort of offshoot of both the laid back candid photography popular in Florida and the dramatic photojournalism of the California market.
Rather than simply sitting passively and letting the events unfold, the creative candid photographer works to set up good candid shots, but without the posing required by the timeless style.
No matter which market we talk about, one common thread binds them all. People are trying to get away from pictures that look posed. Couples want their shots to look as natural and as candid as possible.
Natural compositions in photos lend overall warmth to the marriage album, something that was lacking in wedding photography in earlier days.
The style of wedding photography that you choose should match the style of your special day. A traditional ceremony is best documented through traditional photography.
A relaxed destination ceremony calls for equally relaxed candid photography, while a creative themed marriage would be best matched by a dramatic photojournalistic approach.
Despite local trends, wedding photography in most markets have a number of photographers from which to choose, all of whom offer their own personalized approach.
Shop around carefully to find the photographer whose personal style best matches yours, then work together to design the perfect wedding photography package.

Things Aren't Always What They Seem

Things Aren't Always What They Seem

April 8, 2015
I got a desperate phone call late last night, asking me to shoot a wedding coming up. Before I answered the phone, I recognized the phone number, but wasn't exactly sure why. On the other end of the phone was a familiar voice, begging me to let her explain herself. Once she said her name, I knew exactly who she was. 
About a month or so ago I had a client that I was booking a wedding photography package with, she agreed to the terms, so I sent her my contract and PayPal invoice. It was a few days later that I noticed the invoice was still not paid, so I sent her a friendly email making sure everything was still moving forward. Her reply was that her mother had found a photographer that would better suit their needs. At first I was a little bugged that they wasted my time, but I totally understood. I have been in that same position before, where you thought you knew what you wanted, until you find something "better" so you go with it, then you're too afraid to face the person who you originally agreed with so you simply ignore them. This lady, was at least nice enough to email me back within a few days. 
This time around though, she was singing a different tune. She agreed to work with this other photographer, who was a friend of a friend, who happened to know someone who knew someone else, who shot a wedding once, and would be willing to do it for cheap. As the woman explained this to me, I couldn't help but giggle a little. "Things aren't always what they seem are they" I replied. I simply couldn't help myself, whether the comment offended her or not, I didn't even think before I spoke. 
She apologized, and continued to beg for me to shoot her wedding at the originally agreed upon price. The photographer that she ended up going with completely disappeared! The client sent a check to the photographer, so she thought everything was ok. She then had a hard time getting in touch with the photographer to make adjustments to the flow of the wedding day, and it was only at this point that she became aware that the photographer had taken the money and ran. Ignoring phone calls and emails, making excuses when she did answer the phone, with no clear explanation. 
I have heard horror stories like this from Brides who are getting married, but I had never been this close to the drama until now. 
When a client books me, I have a contract that everyone signs, and the payment is done via PayPal. All because I want to be transparent, I never want there to be a miscommunication or misunderstanding. 
Lesson learned? Always know who you're dealing with. Does the professional have an online presence? Do they have decent reviews? Are their results of the same level of quality with each project? Remember that you always get what you pay for.

Documentary Project Upcoming

Documentary Project Upcoming

April 8, 2015
Did you ever go on Trek as a youth? I was invited many times to go along for TREK in the summers with my youth group. I was never thrilled with the idea of spending a week in the wilderness with scorching heat, not exactly my idea of summer fun. 
Before we moved out of our house, one of the men in my neighborhood announced that he was taking his 11 year old grandson on a trip along the John Muir Trail. Having just watched the documentary "Mile... Mile & A Half" I knew exactly what  they were up against. I was excited for them, and jealous that I wouldn't be able to go. Being that I am a filmmaker, the idea of creating my own documentary film got me thinking that maybe I should go. That dream didn't last long, before I realized that there was no way that I could physically handle the trip, let alone carrying all my gear. 
Successfully navigating the John Muir Trail would be a tremendous accomplishment, but I knew that I couldn't go. BUT, then my Stake Presidency invited me to go along for TREK this year, and create a documentary film for the journey. It's no John Muir Trail, but TREK is nothing to sneeze at, I am excited to go! 
Did you go when you were younger? If so, did you enjoy it? Tell me your most memorable story of TREK. Want to see some more of my videos? Check out my website www.ryanhenderfilms.com

First Project Done In A While

Since the move from our old house, it's been difficult to get settled into the new living situation. Taking care of kids every day is a challenge in and of itself. Getting them up, bathed, dressed, fed, and to school on time is enough to make most people crazy. I got into a rhythm in our old house, but now that we are with the in-laws, the kids have new spaced to play.  More places to play means more messes, and a bigger house means that I can't keep an eye on them every second of the day while I am trying to edit videos. 
As if that weren't challenging enough, having hard drive failures have also delayed all working progress, and made me start over on multiple projects. Then we had the internet fiasco, realizing that the internet speed wasn't enough to sustain my demanding uploading and downloading that I didn't realize I did so much until I had basically NO internet! We went from 100Mbps to 1-5Mbps.. 
Anyway, I have been at it working hard this week and have finally completed my first project since the big move! I hope you like it! I tried some different techniques that I haven't used before, I think it turned out pretty good. I can't wait to make my next big purchase for my business, it will totally transform my video productions going forward.

Website Redesign - Feedback Needed Please!

Website Redesign - Feedback Needed Please!

April 10, 2015
Hey there y'all! Thanks for reading!
You know when someone asks "what have you been up to?" and you respond "ah, not much" without really thinking about it? Isn't that funny how we say things without thinking about it? 
Well, I have been up to a LOT as you can tell by my recent blog posts. That being said, do you enjoy reading my blog? I used to write a blog many years back, called Ryan's Guide to Useless Information. It was a Geocities "website" if you can actually call it that. I had quite the following though, it was a fun little hobby. The website that I have been using for the last few years through Godaddy.com was nice, but didn't allow me to use any sort of blog functionality on the website, unless I was going to embed my blogger.com blog. 
After much research, I decided to switch one of my domains to squarespace.com just to see how it worked out. After playing around with the template and design of the website during my free trial, I have decided to keep one of my domains on Squarespace and the other on Godaddy just until I decide which one I love more. What do YOU think? 
http://www.weddingvideoinsaltlakecity.com is the Squarespace domain, and http://www.ryanhenderfilms.com is through Godaddy. Which one do you like more? Is there one that is easier to navigate? Is there one that is more pleasing to the eye? 
Are you viewing from a mobile device or on a computer? Does the layout and design work? Please leave any feedback you may have!

WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK YOUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

This question gets asked all too often. For us photographers it's a no brainier, so we assume that everyone knows. When should you book your photographer? NOW! YESTERDAY! If you know you're getting married, and you have the date picked, book your photographer.

Depending on your budget for a photographer, the consequences of not booking early will vary greatly. Most quality photographers will book several months in advance, some even years. I've got a few weddings for 2016 booked already, just to illustrate my point. 

It's mid April, and lately I've been overwhelmed with phone calls, emails, and text messages from frantic mothers, brides, and wedding planners trying with all their might to find a photographer in 5 weeks. I understand that sometimes budget constraints limit your ability to book a photographer in advance, but others simply put off booking. 

Your photographer should be the very first thing you book! Even before your wedding venue. 

I've been emailing a woman this morning who is looking for a wedding photographer. The wedding date is June 12th, which is in the wedding season prime. Thus, making it nearly impossible to locate a photographer that will work within her budget, and is available on the day. I've reached out to several of my friends who I thought might be available, with no luck. 

Moral of the story? Book your wedding photographer as soon as you have a date set. If you don't have the venues, times, or other particulars set yet, book the photographer anyway. Worst case scenario is you can adjust your schedule with the photographer nice you have a better idea of when and where things will be happening.

The Importance Of Backing Up Your Stuff

Just a few weeks ago, I plugged in my computer and the external hard drives, but the hard drives weren't showing up on the computer. I tried plugging into another computer, and that didn't work either. I went to the original SD cards to see if by some miracle, I hadn't deleted the files off the cards. To my horror, I had. It was a scene from my worst nightmares! Before an event, every single time I lose sleep. I worry about what could possibly go wrong, do I have everything I will need for the production or event? Did I charge all the batteries, did I remember to put the extra chargers in my bag, are all of the lenses clean? 
When I first got started as a wedding videographer, I would sometimes have weeks or even months in between projects, so I wasn't worried much about backing up my work. I would keep all of my original files on the original SD cards until the project was done. If I had two weddings in a week, I would work all weekend to get a project done so that I could free up my memory cards for the next project. 
Over time, I invested in more and more memory cards so that I could always have the project files on the cards until I was completely done with the project. Eventually, I had more volume than I had memory cards, and there was no possible way to maintain my way of working the same as before. 
Nowadays I am a bit more methodical when it comes to my work, so I use a cloud backup service for all of my data. At any given time, I may have 5-10 projects that I am working on, so it is critical to keep backups of everything! First, I have 2 backup hard drives that contain archives of everything I have ever done, from there, I pay a monthly fee to a backup service that backs up everything on my computer, and anything attached. Even USB Flash Drives and external hard drives. 
After losing both of my external hard drives, I was sweating bullets, because I wasn't sure if the projects I was currently working on were truly backed up. I jumped for joy when I learned that everything was in fact backed up! If I didn't have that data backed up, I would have had to refund thousands of dollars to some very pissed off clients. Corporate work can usually be re-done, but weddings cannot! Do you back your stuff up? If so, what service do YOU use and what do you get for the money you pay?

Small aircraft has landed on US Capitol building

So apparently a man has flown a small aircraft, being described as a gyro copter onto the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol building. 

For anyone who listened to or watched the news unfold on 9/11 2001, this morning makes me have he same feelings that I did that sobering day. 

The small aircraft did not have permission to land on the U.S. Capitol property, why was he there? Are there other threats out there that were not seeing because we're being distracted by this "stunt"? 

Chances are the craft was too small to have been picked up by radar. 

A Glossary of Photography Terms


A Glossary of Photography Terms
April 14, 2015
When you start meeting with potential photographers, it can sound like they’re speaking another language. Learning their lingo can help you clearly communicate what you want your album to look like, as well as help you determine if a particular photographer is the one who can deliver what you want. Before you head to your first appointment, get up to speed with the terms you need to know.
Boudoir shoots
This sexy set of photographs is usually done separately from your soon-to-be-spouse and given to them as a gift. Unlike the rest of your wedding album, these aren’t meant to be shared with anyone but each other—but you can bet they’ll be fun to look at privately for years to come!
Bridal portrait
Traditionally, the bride would go to a photographer’s studio a few months before the wedding to be photographed in her gown (perhaps even holding a replica of her bouquet). While this is now less common, some women still choose to pose for this formal shot so they can include it in their wedding announcement. A modern take on this is the engagement shoot (see below).
Day-of slideshows
Your photographer can quickly create a slideshow of images from the ceremony and cocktail hour and project them onto a big screen during dinner. Guests will love looking at what they just experienced (and at themselves!), plus it will give them plenty to talk about at the tables.
Digital
One of the first decisions you’ll need to make is whether you want your photographer to shoot with digital or film (see below). Digital is the most popular way to shoot. The major advantage is time—depending on your photographer, you could see snaps just days after your wedding. Digital cameras can also shoot in very low light—a perk when you’re photographing an afternoon-into-evening wedding. And thanks to a display screen, your photographer can preview shots and adjust accordingly as he goes.
Engagement shoot
This has become a very popular add-on to photography packages. Not only is it a great way to get a sense of your photographer’s style (and make any suggestions or voice concerns before your wedding day so he can make adjustments), it’s an easy way to capture a perfect image for your save-the-date or wedding website as well. Take your shoot over-the-top by choosing a theme (from chic Breakfast at Tiffany’s to medieval Game of Thrones), or just give it a little flavor with some fun props, like balloons, pennants, umbrellas or a tandem bicycle.
First-look photos
This set of shots, which is done before your ceremony, captures the first time you and your about-to-be-spouse see each other all dressed up on your wedding day. Doing a full set of photos (with you, as well as your families and wedding party) beforehand frees you all up to fully enjoy your cocktail hour postceremony (making it an increasingly popular option!).
Film
Film is your other option if you don’t want digital. Images shot with film have a soft, organic quality to them, but shooting with film is, well, more work -- and more money too. In addition to purchasing rolls of film, processing and editing images take time. Some photographers will shoot both film and digital, so you can get the best of both worlds.
Photo booths
This popular form of entertainment for cocktail hour and receptions has become mainstream, and couples are finding fun ways to personalize their photo booths. Variations include: modern ones that upload photos directly to social media, retro versions that print Polaroid prints automatically or full-service companies that bring a personalized backdrop and props.
Shot list
The best way to ensure your photographer captures all the moments you want is to provide a suggested shot list. Your dress hanging up, a close-up of your groom waiting at the altar, your mom helping you get dressed and your grandparents dancing are just a few of the type of shots to include. Of course, the style and number of these images will all depend on the photographer you've chosen and how long you've hired that pro for. Hint: Choose around 10 photos you absolutely must have—dozens will only be confusing on the day, and the photographer already knows the standard shots most couples want to see.
Style
Your photographer is going to ask you what style of photography you like and show you the types he specializes in. It will help to have a basic understanding before you start flipping through portfolios. Here are five main styles and what you need to know about them:
Artistic
With this style, the photographer’s unique take allows for a different perspective (for instance, the couple may not be looking at the camera). If you don’t want your photos to look like anything you’ve seen on Pinterest, go with a pro who is eager to use a little artistic license to tell your story.
Classic
Like the ones in your grandparents or parents’ wedding album, these are the images that stand the test of time—striking, gorgeous and a bit formal. Classic photos reflect reality (similar to documentary, below), but they’re infused with the shooter’s artistic license.
Documentary
Rather than posed or highly styled shots, documentary photography captures candid or spontaneous pictures of people, d├ęcor and action—in the moment. These shots feel intimate and "real."
Dramatic
Lighting—especially using an off-camera flash—is a key component of dramatic photography. If the sun isn’t cooperating, the photographer will use lighting equipment to capture the same gorgeous effect.
Lifestyle
This take on wedding photography is mostly candid with some direction and style—the end result being beautiful but relaxed. A good photographer will look for moments but also help set the scene.

Yes, photos are fabulous, but video captures things that photos cannot -- like your father's speech, your first dance song, and your maid of honor's toast.

It's not what you think

Throw out the idea that a wedding videographer means lights-camera-action in your face all night. Today's videographers embrace a more documentary style of filming, meaning you might not even notice them -- until they're handing you a stunning video of your day. Video can also be taken in a variety of styles, from vintage Super 8mm film to high-def.

Video captures the in-between moments

Yes, your photographer will get both posed and candid shots, but for everything in between, you need a videographer. And since there's no posing (you just keep enjoying the party!), you won't have to worry about looking stiff or awkward on film.

Videography lets you experiment with style

You want your wedding photos to be timeless (they're going to be displayed in your home for years to come), but your wedding video can be a little trendier while still looking classic. Try out hip videography styles, like vintage Super 8mm film or high-def wedding trailers for a creative look.

Video means sound

It's an obvious one, but video captures audible moments, such as your mother's tearful words of wisdom as she helps you with your veil, your father's reaction to seeing you in your dress, or your grandmother's laugh as she dances with your grandfather. These are the memories you'll cherish long after your dearest relatives have passed, and a wedding video will preserve them forever. And whether you write your own or go traditional, there's no other way to document your vow exchange. Video can also capture important reception moments, such as toasts and songs for you to share with your family in the future.

Wedding videos aren't hour-long sagas

Banish the idea of a wedding video that plays out like a boring slideshow. Same-day edits are one of the hottest trends in wedding videography. Your videographer can capture the highlights as the bride and groom get ready and even include footage from the ceremony to be played at the reception. Guests will love the behind-the-scenes look as you and your groom prepare for your big moment. Or you can incorporate video into your save-the-dates, engagement announcements, or even as a way to welcome your guests to the wedding destination.

Some of the Most Creative Hawaii Beach Wedding Ideas

While choosing decor, you can opt for blues, browns, browns, grays and similar colours that are found in the beaches. You can also optimize on the overall color scheme by adding pink, orange or any other brighter hues.

Wear Shoes that allows you to walk comfortably on the Beach: Like gowns, you need to opt shoes that allows you to walk in the beach comfortable. Normally, sand will enter very easily into closed-toed shoes. Similarly, the heels sinks in the sand. So you can always opt for sandals with flat bottoms or open shoes.

Mention Hawaii Beach Location Clearly: Your wedding guests must know the exact location and the theme of your organized wedding party. Depended on your choice, Hawaii beach wedding may be either casual or formal. So your guests must know the theme of the wedding to wear the right outfit.

Take Loads of Pictures: Hawaii beach wedding will remain incomplete without taking as many pictures as possible. The lush natural setting provided by the beach will further make your wedding photographs spectacular.
