Wedding Guide Ali K.Films & Photography

Congratulations!

Congratulations on your engagement! This is such an exciting time for both of you! Planning a wedding can also be overwhelming. You might feel as if there are a million things to do and not enough time to do them in. Well, one thing you won’t need to worry about are your wedding photographs, I’ve got that covered. Every memorable moment, from the “getting ready” shots, the emotional moments of the bride and father, to the tear jerking ceremony and reception celebration, will be captured forever. I will make sure that you remember every single minute of this beautiful expression of love.

Passion For Photography

For me, photography isn’t just about the click of a button, it’s much more than that. Photography is about capturing real life in all its glory, ensuring those special moments are never forgotten. A good photo is timeless and should make you feel the same bliss you felt on your wedding day. Every smile and tear of joy will be yours to remember forever….because love is forever.

Engagement Session

Engagement sessions are a great way for newly engaged couples to share the big news with their families and friends. It also gives us an opportunity to get to know each other before your big day arrives. Think of your engagement session as a fun day with your other half and the end result being beautiful images that you can treasure forever.

I like to make these sessions laid-back, fun, and easy-going while allowing you to get comfortable with the camera. Engagement sessions typically last 1.5 to 3 hours and can take place in one or multiple locations. I recommend 2-3 outfit changes for me to really capture your personality and love story. Also, I always recommend professional stylists for make-up and hair as it enhances the beauty in every photo.

  • Posing for pictures can be difficult and very awkward at times but you have nothing to worry about. You won’t even need to think about which way to look or where to place your hands as I will guide you throughout your session. By the time it’s over, you will be a natural in front of the camera and this will help make photos on your wedding day effortless. The most important thing to remember for your engagement sessions is to have fun and enjoy the moment!

What to Wear and What to Bring

  • Like the location, your outfits should also be a reflection of you. Generally I think it's a good idea to gather a few looks. Gathering a formal and casual look tends to be just perfect. It allows to look your best while being able to incorporate looks that suit the atmosphere.
  • I’m flexible with whatever you’d like to wear. This is your session and I recommend no more than three outfits in order to maximize our time together. If you want to bring more it’s totally fine, but it may have an impact on the amount of time we’ll have shooting together!

What to Expect

We will first meet to discuss your wedding plans and this can happen over a nice cup of coffee in person, over the phone, via email or even Skype. During this meeting we will go over all the details, ideas and concerns you may have for your wedding session. Below is a timeline of the process from beginning to end. Most importantly you can expect nothing less than superior service from Ali K Films & Photography.

Having the Perfect Timeline

Having a fool-proof timeline for your wedding day is a must in order to ensure a happy, stress-free day.

The start of a magical day. We will arrive an hour before the ceremony to take shots of the bride and her bridesmaids as well as the groom and his groomsmen getting ready.

It’s all in the details. We will take close-up shots of the wedding rings and floral arrangements, as well as any items you feel are important to document.

Love at first sight. The bride and groom will have a few moments alone, where they will get to see each other for the first time in their wedding attire.

To be remembered forever. Portrait photos of the bride and groom will then be taken. The bridal party as well as immediate family will also join in to document this special time.

Two become one. Photos will be taken from many angles throughout the ceremony. All major moments including the vows, as well as the first kiss will be captured.

Let the celebrations begin! We will take photos throughout the reception dinner, including photos of the speeches, cake cutting, bouquet toss and the couples grand exit.

“It wasn't that long, and it certainly wasn't the kind of kiss you see in movies these days, but it was wonderful in its own way, and all I can remember about the moment is that when our lips touched, I knew the memory would last forever.” Kita & Dywane | Est.12.10.2016

My love for you is a journey, starting at forever and ending at never. Beautiful Couple Out Of Jamaica. Keisha & Omar | Est. 10.27.2016
