Love is a Great Adventure! Congratulations Lily and Aaron Shouldis! Married 05/04/19

Love is a great adventure! Lily and Aaron met each other in third grade. And since then, they dated for eight years sharing friendship, faith, and life’s experiences. They married each other, after a two year engagement, on a beautiful spring day, on May 4, 2019, in the presence of family and friends at Lincoln Avenue Bible Church in Bremerton, Washington, followed by a grand reception held at Port Gamble Weddings & Events. It was such a pleasure to do their wedding photography. Rich and I wish Lily and Aaron many happy years together! Thanks so much too for the team of CME Experience for helping to organize the day and keep everybody on track. We love you! BTW, Lily’s gorgeous dress is by Ines Di Santo. Below is a preview of Lily and Aaron’s stunning wedding photos by Jolly Sienda Photography.

Plan Your Wedding Photography When the Light is Most Flattering.

Have you ever heard that photographers chase the light? It's true. The most flattering, warm, light is early in the morning from sunrise to about 10 am in the morning and after 3 pm in the afternoon to sunset. This is when the golden and pink light happens for magical photographs.  Below are several images from weddings which we had fantastic light because of the weather and the time of day in which the photos we're taken. First photograph was taken in the morning for the First Look; middle photograph at sunset; right photograph mid-afternoon about 3 pm.

Maurean and Dan’s wedding was at 6 pm, in August 2018. Capturing the warm golden early evening light.

I know brides and grooms have a lot to cover when planning your wedding. I understand and I'm here to help! Have a conversation about wedding photography with your photographer and learn from them when the best times are to take your beautiful pictures. Trust their expert advice. Ideally, if you can, please try not to have your wedding ceremony at noon. The light is harsh, intense, and can cast a lot of unflattering shadows. Your photographers will use fill flash and reflectors (when possible), however Mother Nature can be tricky.
