And then it was off to Christ United Methodist Church!  Barbi put on her finishing touches including a very dear and sentimental diamond necklace; it was an emotional moment as Barbi's mom and Barbi's aunt put on the necklace right before she walked down the aisle.

This years theme was Ignite...Be the Spark.  It was all about inspiring the campers "to spread their "flame" and impact others in a positive way".

Day One:

The evening started with flagpole, opening ceremony, and a whole lot of rain.  The opening ceremony was full of camp history, stories, and skits followed by a grooving dance party. This year, campers danced to luau inspired songs and did the Limbo.

It was a game of kids vs. parents where they had to find and retrieve the other team's flag.  And it rained so hard!! The game continued until the storm got too bad to stay outside.  The kids had a blast running around in the rain and the parents, well, they were ready to dry off.  In the final tally, the kids won the game, but some parents would challenge that!

The rain subsided and everyone headed down to the lake for campfire and s'mores.  And just as it got dark, a boat carrying a large, lite-up heart circled around the lake.  It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.

Afterwards, we headed over to where our horse lives to wrap-up Jessica's bridal session just as the sun was setting.  Our horse gave us a hand... actually, a hoof with Jessica's gorgeous sunset pictures. ;)  Love it!

Remember the Three "P's" When Looking For Your Wedding Photographer http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/remember-the-three-ps-when-looking-for-your-wedding-photographer Beautiful bride with her sunflower bouquet in Monroe, NC.Beautiful bride with her sunflower bouquet in Monroe, NC.Beautiful bride posed with her sunflower bouquet at her October wedding in Monroe, NC. © Aureola Spectrum Photography

There are three important "P" words to remember when looking for your wedding photographer.  If you are looking for in-depth tips and must ask questions for wedding photographers before you hire, see our blog post here.

Portfolio - The first order of business is to check out the photographer's portfolio.  Do you like the style of the images?  How do they compare to your idea of what your wedding photos should look like?  See if the portfolio represents all aspects of a wedding from ceremony preparation to the bride & groom exit and all of the important moments in-between: ceremony, portraits, reception, candid moments.  While checking out the photographer's portfolio, take note if they are solely wedding photographers or if they dabble in all sorts of photography; you will want to steer your search to a professional who is dedicated to capturing weddings.

 

Packages - Find out what's included in the wedding packages.  Do you see one that fits your needs.  Think about the coverage hours you will need, whether or not the photographer gives you a full print release, what photo products are included, are there any extra sessions - engagement, bridal, or both?  Packages can vary widely, but a typical package includes 8 hours of coverage.  We highly recommend choosing a package with a full print release.  You want to have the rights to your photos so you can make prints whenever you like. 

 

Personality - You need to feel comfortable and at ease with your photographer; after all, this person will be with you constantly on your wedding day.  Do they welcome your questions and ideas?  Are they genuinely excited about your wedding day and making an effort to get to know you?  If you are having a great time talking with your potential photographer then it's a sign of a good match.

 

So remember, look for a portfolio that reflects you, a package that fits your needs, and a photographer with a great personality that you get along with great.  Follow the three "P's" and you are on your way to finding the photographer perfect for your wedding day.

Happy Wedding Planning!

Although the rainy weather was present that day, it didn’t keep us from capturing their gorgeous bride & groom portraits amongst the mist covered mountains and calm waters of Lake Lure.  We even incorporated a cute umbrella for the couple's portraits.  And how we love the beautiful detail photos of their wedding rings! :) Congratulations Brittany and Thomas on your marriage! 

Enjoy!

Why You Should Consider Doing a "First Look" Plus Tips http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/2/why-you-should-consider-doing-a-first-look-plus-tips Bride & Groom First Look in Lancaster, SCBride & Groom First Look in Lancaster, SCBride and Groom during the first look at The Coker Ranch wedding venue in Lancaster, SC. © Aureola Spectrum Photography

Today, more couples are incorporating a "first look" into their wedding day.  So what is a first look and why do it?

What is a First Look?

A first look is an intimate moment between the bride & groom before their wedding ceremony where they see each other dressed in their wedding attire for the first time.  The first look can be a few minutes or a few hours before the ceremony begins.

Why do it?

Couples opt for a first look to calm nerves before they say their "I Dos".  After the activity of getting ready to walk down the aisle, the bride can share a few blissfully quiet moments with her husband-to-be before their ceremony begins.

Capture the big reveal with photographs of your beautiful candid moments. 

After the first look is an excellent time to take formal portraits.  By taking a majority of your Bride & Groom, Bridal Party, and Family Portraits before your ceremony, you will have more time after your ceremony for any remaining photos and can get to your reception sooner.

Alternative

Another option is to hold hands around a door or wall and talk to each other before the ceremony without loosing the tradition of the groom seeing his bride for the first time as she walks down the aisle. 

Planning for a First Look

To successfully orchestrate a first look, put a family or bridal party member in charge of situating the groom in the selected location so that he can't see his bride until the big reveal moment.

Be sure to allow enough time for the first look.  If you are having a first look immediately before your ceremony, 5-10 minutes should be plenty of time.  However, if you are planning to take any formal portraits after the first look and before your ceremony, allow at least an hour or more depending on factors such as bridal party size.

So what do you think? Is a first look right for you? 

Happy Wedding Planning!

Stefanie + Adam Wedding | Concord, NC | The Farm at Brusharbor http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/10/stefanie-adam-wedding-photography-concord-nc We loved Stefanie and Adam’s wedding!  The venue location, The Farm at Brusharbor in Concord, was beautiful; its massive barn served as the reception hall and was surrounded by a pond and wide stretching pastures.  Stefanie and Adam love the outdoors, so this was perfect for them!  Specifically, they enjoy riding bikes together; in fact, Adam proposed to Stefanie on a bike ride!  This was a major theme on their wedding day from table centerpiece’s to their awesome cake!  We love that they incorporated their shared hobby of bike riding on their wedding day. 

A memorable moment for us came at the end of their reception when one of their guests happened upon a child’s riding toy tractor and took it for a spin around the dance floor; it was absolutely hilarious!

Congratulations Stefanie and Adam on your marriage!

Enjoy!

Lesley + Cory | Concord, NC | Bride & Groom http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/10/lesley-cory-bride-groom-portraits-concord-nc We met Lesley and Cory on an early morning in Concord, NC for their bride and groom session.  They chose a unique location with a historical past, gothic architecture, and a sense of mystery.  The Stonewall Jackson Youth Development Center was opened in 1909 as the first juvenile detention center in North Carolina and once existed on over 290 acres. Today, the site is full of unknown, wonder, and unexplained paranormal activity.  Even the natural landscaping is curious, as it possesses gigantic rocks throughout the property, which made for some pretty cool pictures as Lesley and Cory appeared as though they were standing on the edge of a cliff.  We enjoyed exploring Stonewall Jackson with Lesley and Cory!  Congrats Lesley and Cory on your marriage!

Enjoy!

10 Questions You Must Ask a Wedding Photographer Before Booking Them http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/9/10-questions-you-must-ask-a-wedding-photographer-before-booking-them Hiring your wedding photographer is critical in planning your wedding day!  These are your wedding memories after all!  And since it isn’t every day you plan a wedding or an event of this size you may not be sure of your next steps.  There are so many details that go into creating your dream wedding and it may seem overwhelming at times.  That’s completely normal!

So here are tips & questions that will point you in the right direction for hiring your wedding photographer for your fabulous wedding day!

The Tips

  1. Do Your Research... Surf the web.  Pinterest is an amazing source for a plethora of wedding photo ideas!  What do you like? Dislike?  Remember this when you start viewing local photographer’s portfoliosView dedicated wedding websites. What are other brides saying?  What advice are the seasoned pros giving? Take advantage of the valuable knowledge spread over the web.  Talk to your recently married family and friends.  Ask them about their experiences with their wedding photographer.  How much do they charge?  What services are available?  How did they decide on their photographer? 
  2. Check Out Their Reviews... So you love a photographer’s work and want to know more?  Take a second to look at their reviews.  What are their recent clients saying about them?  This is a first hand look into the provider’s past work experience.
  3. Meet with Them… An in person meeting is the best possible way to find out if the wedding photographer is right for you.  You get to see first hand if they are professional.  Are they punctual?  Are they dressed professionally? If they take the time to dress nicely and arrive on time, then you know they take you and your wedding seriously.  What is their personality?  This is a great time to see if the pro is a right fit for you.  After all, this person will be with you constantly on your wedding day; you want to hire someone that you are completely comfortable being around.  If meeting isn’t possible, set up a phone, Skype, or FaceTime chat.
  4. Ask Questions... Ask questions until you completely understand; there are no right or wrong questions!  These questions will help you identify if the pro matches your needs. Professionals should not hesitate answering your questions.  In fact, they should welcome them!  Your questions are valuable in creating the best possible experience for you! 
  5. Listen & Watch...  Are you comfortable around this person? Are they confident in their answers?  Do they listen to what you are saying?  You should feel at ease and comfortable asking your questions.  In addition, you should have a take away feeling that they truly care about your wedding day.  Take it all in because in the end your gut feeling will indicate to you if this pro is right for you.

 

Here are the 10 Must Ask Questions for Your Potential Wedding Photography Professionals Before Booking:

  1. How many years have you photographed weddings? Is your focus on wedding photography?  Experience specifically in weddings is super important!  Do you really want to hire someone who photographs birthday parties, corporate events, newborn sessions, landscape, pets, family portraits, everything under the sun, and oh yes weddings?  Choose someone whose focus is wedding photography and if they do photograph other types of events and subjects, be sure it’s on the side and that wedding photography is their main interest.  An experienced wedding photographer will not only produce lovely wedding day photographs, but will also be able to lend advice for your wedding day. 
  2. Do you require a deposit? And if so how much?  Most photographers require a nonrefundable retainer to hold your date. 
  3. Do you have a contract?  The answer to this question should ALWAYS be yes.  Do not hire someone based on a verbal agreement.  A contract will outline both parties’ duties and protects both you and the wedding pro. Check out this blog about why it’s so important to have a written agreement  Here .
  4. What specifically is included in the cost?  Find out exactly what is included in your package.  Use this information to compare all your potential photographers’ packages.  Higher quotes may include services or photo products that are an extra cost with lower priced packages.  Does the lower priced package equal the higher priced package in price once the extras are added on?  Does it cost more or less?  Here is a sample of what can be included in a wedding photography package:

 

Number of Wedding Day Coverage Hours

Online Gallery

Editing or Retouching

Images on Digital Media

Prints/Canvases

Wedding Albums

Extra Sessions (Engagement and/or Bridal Portraits)

Full Print Release

 

  1. Are there any additional fees? Additional fees can include travel fees, taxes, and service charges.  All fees should be outlined in the contract so you know the total cost from the get-go.   
  2. What happens is I cancel?  What happens if you cancel?  As we all know, unexpected and uncontrollable circumstances do happen in life.  To help offset this reality, your photographer should have a backup plan outlined in the contract.  A clause in your contract explaining the procedures of cancellation from both parties is a must.
  3. How many photos do I receive?  Do I get a print release?  Find out how many photos you will receive from your wedding day as well as your engagement or bridal portrait sessions.  You may be required to purchase photos as a separate cost or you may get every single photo taken.  A full print release is a must!  Be sure your wedding professional is providing you with a print release so that you can get unlimited prints of your wedding moments.
  4. Do you have back up equipment?  Electronics can fail.  Another sad, but true fact of life.  If you have ever had a computer crash on you, then you know first hand!  This is a day in your lives that you want to cherish forever, so let’s not let a faulty camera take that away from you!  Be sure that your photographer has backup cameras, lens, batteries, etc. 
  5. Are you photographing other events on the same day as mine? Do not hire someone who plans to photograph other events on the same day as your wedding!  If the photographer truly cares about your wedding day, then they will completely focus on your event for that day.  Double booking is a big no-no.
  6. Have you ever worked at my wedding site before?  If not, will you check it out in advance?  If your potential photographer has never worked at your wedding site before, this isn’t a deal breaker.  A photographer experienced in photographing weddings in different venue types and lighting conditions, especially similar to your venue, is adequate.  A pro that can adjust to their surroundings is invaluable.  However, if requested, they should be willing to check out your wedding venue in advance.

Lesley + Cory Wedding | Concord, NC | Piedmont Renaissance Center http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/lesley-cory-wedding-photography-concord-nc Oh how we loved Lesley and Cory’s wedding day!  The day’s events unfolded at their beautiful wedding venue, Piedmont Renaissance Center, in downtown Concord, NC.  We loved the fact that we could capture their wedding ceremony from all angles: above, side, back, and front!  Their love was represented in a sweet and simple ceremony officiated by Lesley’s brother-in-law.  Throughout the evening, we captured so many raw, organic emotions, but some of our personal favorites are Lesley and Cory’s first dance images.  You can just feel their love bring the in-the-moment photographs to life.  This past weekend we captured Lesley and Cory's bride & groom portraits in a very cool location in Concord.  Check back for a follow-up blog featuring their bride & groom photos!

Barbi + Travis | Greensboro, NC | Engagement http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/barbi-travis-engagement-photography-greensboro-nc In Greensboro, N.C., we met up with Barbi and Travis for their engagement session and what an amazing time we had photographing this charming couple!  The day was an exciting whirlwind of activity as we visited a variety of locations representing who they are as a couple.  One stop on our list included Starmount Forest Country Club for their tennis themed photographs at Starmount’s indoor tennis courts; this is also where their wedding reception will be held in October!  Afterwards, we headed over to Tanger Family Bicentennial Garden and Lake Brandt for nature-oriented photos.  But one of our favorite locations was Lake Brandt!  First, we captured beautiful silhouettes on the docks of Lake Brandt.  Then, all dressed up in formal attire, Barbi and Travis took a running leap into the lake!  And how we love those pictures!  We can’t wait for their autumn wedding!

Enjoy!

Elaine + Adam Wedding | Monroe, NC | Dixie Dreams http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/8/elaine-adam-wedding-photography-monroe-nc Elaine and Adam’s wedding day was full of love, beautiful memories, and a few surprises too!  Elaine looked stunning as she walked down the aisle to meet her soon-to-be husband dressed in her white wedding gown and accented blue wedding boots.  The couple wrote their own vows, a special touch to an already beautiful ceremony.  After the ceremony, their adorable dog, Jessie, posed with her newly wed owners.  Jessie was so well behaved as we tied a sign around her neck, balanced rings on her head, and picked up her paws.  And then it was off to the reception!  The reception was held at Dixie Dreams in Monroe, NC and began with the traditional dances.  Elaine and Adam swept around the dance floor enjoying their first dance, but anticipating what was to come next.  The guests were surprised when the DJ swapped songs and the entire bridal party joined the bride and groom to dance to Wobble.  But the real surprise was still to come!  Suddenly, bounding from a back hallway appeared Clemson University’s mascot, The Tiger, to join the dance.  A real treat for Adam who is a graduate of Clemson University!  As the sun was setting, we captured picturesque bride and groom photos of Elaine and Adam in a seemingly endless field of golden wheat.  Congratulations Elaine and Adam on your marriage! 

Enjoy!

Staying true to his heritage, Anthony opted to wear a plaid kilt instead of the traditional suit for their wedding day.  At their reception, Snipes Farm Retreat in Chapel Hill, NC, we captured Suzanne and Anthony’s bride and groom photographs just as the sun was lowering in the sky incorporating the silo, pond, and large tree planted in the middle of the open field.  The night concluded with sparkler writing photos; a wonderful ending to their beautiful wedding day!  Congratulations Suzanne and Anthony on tying the knot!

Elaine | Bridal Portraits | Monroe, NC http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/elaines-bridal-portrait-session-monroe-nc We absolutely love Elaine’s bridal images!   It was a gorgeous day for a bridal session and we photographed at two wonderful locations.  We met Elaine and her mom, sister, and future mother-in-law at Shiloh Advent Christian Church, Elaine and Adam’s ceremony location.  Here we captured the more traditional photos.  For their second location, we headed to our friend’s farm in Monroe, NC.  The red barn, pond, and lush green fields speckled with yellow buttercups was the perfect match for her country wedding theme.  And the icing on the cake was when the resident feline, an orange tabby named Butterball, strolled into the pasture for his close up with the bride; cats have their own agenda and for a cat to want to pose looking up so sweetly at the bride was amazing!  Be sure to check back in the next few weeks to see Elaine and Adam’s wedding photographs!

Enjoy!

Stefanie + Adam | Charlotte, NC | Engagement http://theaureolaspectrum.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/stefanie-adam-engagement-photography-charlotte-nc We had such a great time photographing Stefanie and Adam’s engagement session!  In May, we met the outdoors loving couple at the Whitewater Center in Charlotte, NC.  This location was a perfect match for the pair since Adam proposed to Stefanie on a bike ride.  After taking photos along the winding trails with their bikes, we headed to the quaint Belmont, NC.  In Belmont, we loved that we could incorporate not just the typical train tracks, but an actual train too!  As the sun began to set, we captured the brilliant sunrays dancing between the adorable couple.  We are so excited for their big day and can’t wait to capture their “I Dos”.

Enjoy!

Abby & Ryan
