John DeFiora Photography THE WEDDING EXPERIENCE

So, you're getting married...

You have a ton of questions, and don't know where to start ... I got you. My name is John, and I will go over how I approach each wedding day.

I begin the day by arriving about an hour before we leave for the first look or ceremony. During that time, I photograph the details ie, the flowers, shoes, dress and jewelry to be worn during the day. After those are photographed, I grab candids of the bridesmaids, finishing touches of makeup, and the bride getting in her wedding dress. While this is going on, my associate photographer is with the guys, grabbing all the details as well as shenanigans that the guys are getting into.

First Look or ceremony

If there isn't enough time between ceremony and cocktail hour, the wedding is on-site, or you just want a more private moment with each other - this is the perfect option. With on site ceremonies, venues don't like to have the guests wait, so therefore, they go right into cocktail hour, which unfortunately cuts the much needed time for photos by 30%. Not to mention, most of the time you get more emotion as there's considerably less people around, allowing those moments to come out unabated.

If you have a large gap between ceremony and cocktail hour, and depending on time of the day and year, then this too is an option. Generally, Family photos are done right after the ceremony, and then we go to the portrait location or venue for bridal party and formal pictures.

Cocktail Hour

During this time, we like to have the couple decompress and relax with friends and family. While you are greeting guests and having some appetizers, we are setting up our lighting for the reception and grabbing details of the room before everyone comes in to party.

Reception

This is where the party is - we cover the first dances, parents dances, toasts and general mayhem. After the cake cutting, we usually depart so you can be with loved ones. By that time of the evening we have hundreds of photos of everybody going nuts!

Post - Wedding

After the dust has settled, we begin the selection process and editing of your images. All doubles, triples, blinks are removed upon import, thus leaving the best of the best. Once editing is completed, you will receive the link to your gallery. The gallery is broken down into the various parts of the day, this way it's easier for both you and the guests to search if they would like to see specific parts. The link can be shared or forwarded so if guests find a photo of themselves, and would like to purchase a print, they can order it right online instead of hampering you with making copies. They can even order just one print, yup.

My Goal

Is for you to see the value and commitment that my associates and I put into each and every wedding. We are all about those moments you may miss when in the whirlwind of the wedding day, the attention detail as well as the passion and love for what we do.
