My Two Cents: Photography

My Two Cents: Photography

There are SO MANY good photographers out there! Every time we meet a new one and see their awesome work, we can’t help but add them to our mental list of favs. I’ve recently received a lot of emails asking about wedding photography at Crossed Keys Estate. Now, I am no expert, but as my mother likes to say… just thought I’d share my two cents. Here are some tips when looking for a photographer:   1. Look for a unique perspective. With about 3,299 places to take photos on our grounds, we love seeing someone who has the ability to look at it all with fresh eyes. If you see a photo and think, “That’s cool!”, it’s probably because it’s different than the 100’s you’ve seen on Pinterest recently.   2. Do they capture close-ups and wide shots equally well? You want to remember every smile as well as every setting at your wedding. Choose a photographer who is great a capturing both.   3. Think about what kind of style you want. When looking at photos I always notice if the style seems more airy and light, or more dramatic and dark with harder lines. My preference is the darker style as I like a little sharper look. This is totally personal preference but I recommend keeping this in mind when looking for a photographer.   4. Don’t just ask for availability & pricing. Ask them to describe what they think makes them good, different, easy to work with [insert your question here]. Liking their work is important, but liking the person you choose goes a long way as it makes the whole process easier and fun!...

As Summer rolls right along, we are already preparing for our fall weddings. I can’t believe it! I was just thinking of these two adorable kids from our 2016 season and what a wonderful, autumn day they had. So let’s relive it! Natalie & Hunter planned this NJ wedding all the way from Oklahoma and it came together so beautifully. It was an absolute joy to make their rustic wedding dreams come true. Photography by Lauren...
