Capturing wedding day atmosphere and emotion
JEN from Jennifer Boote Photography loves capturing the special moments that happen on a bride and groom’s wedding day.
“Your wedding day is, arguably, the most important day of your life to date,” she said.
“It’s a day when memories are made, tears of joy are shared, emotions are heightened and love abounds.”
Jen loves photographing weddings more than anything else – she loves the atmosphere and the emotions that flow through the day.
What Jen prides herself in is capturing the images that often get forgotten – the shoes (his and hers!), the flowers, the rings, the perfume or that special item that has been handed down or on or to the bride.
Jen says “all of those are important to help you document the day – but you also need the moments that happen unexpectedly.
“The moment when the bride takes a deep breath and walks down the aisle, the moment the groom first spots his forever love.
“The moment Dad’s hand leaves his daughters and passes it on to her soon to be husband.
“The moment that Mum cries as she watches her son or daughter make the biggest commitment of their life and the tears slip down her face.
“The moment one of the flower girls gets a kiss from the pageboy.”
Yes, there are a percentage of images that need to be ‘posed’, but Jen tries to minimise those and stick as much as possible to more natural and spontaneous moments.
Jen is also constantly looking for that ‘hero’ shot - the one that ends up on your wall to be looked at for years to come and even to be talked about with your children in the future.
“I have been photographing weddings for over four years now and wish I had started sooner,” Jen said.
“Weddings are such a joy to photograph and to be part of.
“Every single one I do leaves me with wonderful memories.”
She said she takes a personalised approach to every wedding she photographs.
“When I photograph weddings, or for that matter families and children, I look to capture the unexpected moments so the memories that are created form a story for the couple and their family and friends to remember in the years ahead.
“My motto is, ‘capturing unexpected moments that become precious memories’,” Ms Boote said.
She said that she was very flexible in terms of creating the perfect wedding package for each couple.
“I do have wedding packages that I offer, but I find that each couple has their own dreams and plans and I like to try and make my packages suit what each couple want.
“Your wedding is first and foremost about you and that is how I focus my packages and my photography.
“I count it a privilege to be involved in every wedding I photograph.”
Ms Boote said she is extremely flexible with locations and happily travels around the region covering weddings from Albury to Falls Creek and across to Mt Hotham/Dinner Plain, Bright, Wandiligong, Myrtleford and Milawa.
Ms Boote added there are many beautiful reception locations in our region, and this has inspired her to put together an online ‘Bright/Mt Beauty Wedding Guide’.
