Cap­tur­ing wed­ding day at­mos­phere and emo­tion

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Wedding Guide - - FRONT PAGE -

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’.
