Jenny and Colton had a small and personal ceremony, followed by one hell of a party! They're such a good example of a couple who kept their wedding all about them and prioritized exactly the type of day they wanted. It was raining pretty hard during the short time I was with them, so we shot most of these in the basement of the venue. (Yes, the basement!)

Cindy and Edvin | Vue on 50 Philadelphia Wedding | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/4/cindy-and-edvin-vue-on-50-philadelphia-wedding-philadelphia-wedding-photographer I know this post is about to be all about Cindy and Edvin, but prepare to see a ton of Paulie the dog. I don't want to say he stole the show, but he was the goodest of good boys. As for the actual wedding, I have shot so many cool traditions outside of my own, but this was my first Albanian! After getting ready at the Logan Hotel in Philadelphia, these two headed to their ceremony at St. John Crysostom Albanian Orthodox Church. The reception was at VUE on 50, a ballroom on the 50th floor of a skyscraper. It was unreal. Sometimes I can't believe this is my job. Between the church and VUE, we took a party bus to some iconic Philadelphia Wedding Photo Locations, including the steps of the art museum and Philadelphia's City Hall. (Again, how is this my job?)

Sara and Nick | Irons Mill Farmstead Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/4/sara-and-nick-irons-mill-farmstead-wedding Sara and Nick were so easy going! When I say no stress day here, I mean no stress day. The weather was questionable but Sara was getting married outside come hell or high water. (You KNOW how I feel about couples willing to embrace the rain. My heart.) It ended up raining through most of the ceremony and clearing up for portraits, but the rain is just such a vibe.

Stephanie and Marcus | Phipps Conservatory Pittsburgh Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/4/phipps-conservatory-wedding When I first moved to Pittsburgh 10 years ago, The Phipps was the first wedding venue I put on my bucket list. Working with Stephanie and Marcus on their wedding day did not disappoint. The outdoor garden feels like a little oasis in the middle of the city. We had access to the entire grounds, allowing us to get the classic shots of the couple in front of the glass entrance. These two were just so natural and magical together!

Jenny and Jordan's Music Festival Wedding | Pittsburgh Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/4/music-festival-wedding If there's one thing I like as much as wedding, it's live music. Jenny and Jordan's Allegheny County Music Festival wedding was a perfect blend of the two. In the simplest and most perfect ceremony, they tied the know with their closest friends by their side and a live band playing in the background. Here's something you gotta know about me as a photographer. If I see someone who can contribute to an epic photo. I'm going to ask. That's how I got the bubble photos and the rainbow photos in this post. I've found that almost everyone is not only excited, but thrilled to help out with wedding photos.   Music Festival WedingJenny and Jordan's Pittsburgh Music Festival Wedding

The bubble photos! These are some of my all time favorite images I've ever done.

Jim and Carolanne were another pandemic couple that I was so glad I got to work with twice! The first day was small self-uniting ceremony at the Grandview Overlook in Pittsburgh. You can't tell from the photos, but there was a whole other wedding happening up there! Don't worry, we were far out of the way of the wedding AND all the other portrait photographers around. It's a popular spot!

The Rivers Casino in Pittsburgh makes for such a cool backdrop for images like this! It's one of my favorite venues in the city.

Derek's one request was a grand cookie table. (If you've ever attended a Pittsburgh wedding you know what I'm talking about.) His mom, grandma, and aunts took that request seriously and delivered one of the most stunning cookie tables I've seen in all my years photographing weddings!

Kelly and Kevin's Vermont Wedding | Lilac Inn Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/4/lilacinnwedding This one was so exciting for me! I don't get to work with anyone from my hometown nearly as often as I'd like, so when Kelly asked me to drive to Vermont (where she and her husband currently live) I jumped at the chance. 

They hosted their families and got married at the Lilac Inn in Brandon, Vermont. I had never been to Brandon but it was genuinely one of the cutest towns I've ever seen. 

"Can we get a photo with the dogs?" Alway, yes. Very very, yes.  

Kelly and Kevin said their vows privately before the ceremony after their first look. I cannot recommend this enough for anyone who is nervous to stand in front of everyone they know and profess their love. As a photographer, I honestly don't even care if you invite me to photograph your vows. I can be as hands on or hands off as you want. In this case, I photographed the first look then a few minutes of vows then I was outta there! If you want to be alone I totally respect that decision. Always.  

Kelly's officiant was her brother, Tim, a lifelong friend of mine.

Darren and Jess | Fiorella Wedding | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/4/fiorellawedding I almost didn't shoot this one. Darren and Jess are two of my favorite people in the whole wide world. Darren has been my ride or die since the third floor of Tower B at Edinboro University and I felt connected to Jess pretty much from the first time I met her. (She's got that effect on people.) Anyway, I was invited to this wedding and didn't want to push my photos onto them and Darren didn't want to ask me to work. We got it together eventually so I got to be a "guest with skills" as a Fiorella server put it. 

Bride and Groom on their front porch in South PhiladelphiaBride and Groom on their front porch in South PhiladelphiaPhiladelphia Wedding Photographer Lacey Barber Photography

They got married in the world's simplest and most perfect ceremony at their home and then treated us to the best meal most of us have had in our lives. 

Black and White photo of bride and groom in window light

I did this during a pretty intense game of sorry amongst some friend's kids.

When I say simple ceremony, I mean everyone did a shot and they signed their license. I know the shot photo was not my best work, but this is a moment I was trying to be a guest as well, if you know what I mean.  

Sometimes I get visions of images I want to make at weddings. I saw this one in my head from the moment I pulled up Fiorella on Google Images. The blurry people are some of Darren and Jess's closest friends. I had them walk back and forth and slowed my shutter speed to 1/15th to achieve this look. 
 

It's not a portrait session with me without a dance break. I don't make the rules. (I absolutely do make the rules.)  

A 2024 goal of mine is to take at least one double exposure at every wedding. I love them soooo much. 

 

Peep Jess's matching tattoo with the chef!

Brie and Peter | Valley Green Inn Wedding | Philadelphia Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/4/brie-and-pete I was lucky enough to work with Brie and Peter twice! I photographed their small pandemic wedding near Binghamton, New York, then a year later I got to shoot their full party at Valley Green Inn in Philadelphia. Both days were a little rainy and completely perfect. This little set of images were taken on a private property (with permission, of course!) and isn't it gorgeous! I was blown away when we arrived.  As I mentioned, it rained during the ceremony, but we they did a first look so we managed to get in plenty of portraits before the rain started. I've never really thought of this before, but I think that's another excellent argument for a first look.  We moved out of the rain under this clear tent, which was a VIBE. I'm not saying I'm glad it rained on their day, but there's something about a clear tent that's so cozy and fun at the same time.  I cannot understate the intensity of this giant Jenga game.

Jake and Valeria's Intimate Colorful Wedding | Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/3/jake-and-valerias-intimate-colorful-wedding As soon as I met Jake and Valeria at their Airbnb near Scranton, I knew the vibe of the wedding would be fun, relaxed, and colorful. They gathered all their closest friends for a weekend long party and it was as fun to take their photos as I'm sure it was to be a guest.  We love a group shot around here! It's not all that often that I get to take a photo of everyone at the wedding, but I love when I get the chance.  With no traditional wedding party, close friends were allowed to wear whatever they wanted. As per most things in 2020, there were hiccups in finding vendors. Valeria had several cancellations, including her hair/makeup and her caterer! Luckily they have the most talented friends and family who were able to step up and take on the tasks that needed covered.  I've said this a million times, but a couple walking back towards me after the ceremony is my favorite part of a whole wedding day. It's the time everyone (including me) gets to relax after waiting though the ceremony for that first kiss.  And my favorite part of the day..the rain! I love love love couples who embrace the rain on their wedding day. Couples who are happy to dance in it are my people!

Jess and Matt's Backyard DIY Wedding | Jamestown NY Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2024/3/jess-and-matts-backyard-diy-wedding-jamestown-ny-wedding-photographer These two! When I tell you I love a backyard wedding, this one show exactly why. Jess and Matt got married on their own property, grew their own wedding flowers, and even brewed their own been. (Matt is a brewer for Southern Tier Brewing, so this was an obvious move.) 

Oh! And did I mention the taco bar?! I absolutely adore when couples opt for a non-traditional wedding meal.  You'll notice throughout these photos, a LOT of smiling faces. That's because this wedding was just as much about the community around Jess and Matt as it was about the couple themselves. The vibe was immaculate.  There was almost no scheduled time for family photos, which is FINE with me. I'm totally good to grab candids and more casual group shots throughout the day if that's what you want. (Note about this: If you don't want formal family shots, you *must* mention this to your family or they'll often try and take over.)

Melissa And Dave's Back Yard Hand Fasting Ceremony Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2021/11/melissa-and-daves-back-yard-hand-fasting-ceremony-wedding  

Melissa and Dave married at one of the most beautiful properties I've had the pleasure of working at, and it was their friend's back yard! The path was cleared through the forest and guests were taken on horse drawn carriages to the ceremony site. Yes, horse drawn carriages! To say this was a fairytale wedding is an understatement.

There's my arm! haha

Rich and Matt's Black Tie New Years Eve Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2021/11/rich-and-matts-black-tie-new-years-eve-wedding My theory is that if you're going to do a NYE wedding, you'd better go big or go home and these two went BIG. I'm talking a drag queen presented the cake, charcuterie board the size of a kitchen table, balloon drop at midnight, and feathermen instead of flower girls big!

These shots in front of the marquee were the most important and HELLO! I live for a low light moment. NYE in Northern Pennsylvania means that almost this entire wedding was shot in the dark!
The venue: A gorgeous old movie theater!  In case you thought I was kidding about the feather men..




It's fitting that this moment is in front of a theater, because it was something straight from a movie. It was dry all day until we walked outside and then the snow started falling right on cue.

Logan and Janilly - Staten Island Grand Oaks Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2021/3/logan-and-janilly---staten-island-grand-oaks-wedding-photographer The first time I met Logan and Janilly, their families surprised them with an engagement session in Logan’s hometown of Ellicottville, New York. If you’ve never been to Elicottville, it’s the cutest little ski town in upstate New York near Buffalo. We took a walk around the business district while they stopped to cuddle in front of the shops and the flower beds, then we walked around the arboretum, and lastly stopped at Holiday Valley Ski Lodge. All while something magical was happening. It was raining. If you follow any of my social media you know how much I love working in the rain almost as much as I love working with couples who are willing to embrace that rain.

 

I have to admit I was nervous and excited to shoot their wedding in New York City. I was not familiar with Staten Island, but when I learned that the wedding and reception would be in the same location I took it without hesitation. Mostly what I was nervous about was navigating New York in between events with my equipment, but with that out of the equation I was more than confident I could handle it.

Brides by Sette and Beauty by Samantha Carly were kind of the dream team as far as hair and makeup goes. They were so fun and they, along with Janilly’s sweet family, made the getting ready part of the day fun and totally no stress. Not to mention the girls looked gorgeous for the big day.

Logan and Janilly opted for a first look, which I always think is so special. It’s such an honor to be a part of coordination the first time a couple sees each other on their wedding day. First looks are a personal decision, but I always recommend them. It’s a great opportunity to really soak each other in before the guests arrive and the day get too crazy. It also means you can get family portraits out the the way before the ceremony. That means you can get to the party faster afterwards! When my couples opt for a first look and family photos before the ceremony, I still love to get a few portraits of just the two of them after the ceremony. It’s just a different and special vibe. It was COLD that day.. SO cold. SO windy. But Logan, Janilly, and the wedding party were all champions. The venue had such beautiful grounds I couldn’t help but ask them to take a walk around for some portraits. The cold is just an excuse to cuddle a little closer.

This crowd could dance! I don’t know if I’ve shot a wedding reception with this many excellent dancers. The energy all night was ridiculously fun!

There are few things that make me prouder than working with previous couples' siblings. A few summers, ago I shot Kristen's sister's wedding in their backyard Lakewood, New York. Kristen's wedding wasn't in an actual backyard, but it had that same fun laid-back atmosphere! They got married at Touchstone Center for Crafts near Uniontown, Pennsylvania. Almost to the West Virginia border! (I have a thing for West Virginia. I can't even describe it but I love that state.) Even more than I love West Virginia, I love when couples throw out the rules on how a wedding should look. Kristen and Travis opted to skip the traditional ceremony and have their guests give speeches if they so chose. They also played rock paper scissors to see who said their vows first!

In keeping with the casual theme of the day, Kristen didn't wait until she walked down the aisle to see Travis. We met him for a beer before the ceremony!



I told you there was a game of rock paper scissors!

These women held Kristen's bachelorette weekend in Asheville! (Another one of my very favorite towns!) They all got these moon tattoos on their trip.

Elle and Leo | Olean New York Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2020/1/elle-and-leo-olean-new-york-wedding-photographer I started college as a sociology major and found myself a few years later with a fine art degree. Being a wedding photographer, I am fortunate enough to tell the stories of human beings in love. Lasting love means embracing change, and very few couples represent that better than this one. Elle and Leo have had other photographers document their love story, but I had the honor of being the first one to photograph their love since Leo started living their truest life as a gender nonbinary person. These two are business owners, and run one of the most inclusive salons in the industry. (Not to mention that nobody is touching my hair except Elle ever again.) Their business, WT HAIR, is open to all, and so is mine. Forever and ever and ever.
 

Leo told me that this tattoo was a little bit crooked, and the doctor who performed their top surgery straightened it out and subsequently restored my faith in humanity.

The photo in the front is the first photo Elle and Leo ever took together. It now serves as a reminder of the past and lives in the salon they built together.

We ended our session with some branding photos! I LOVE getting an opportunity to shoot something a little different.

Erin and Sarah - Marquette Michigan Wedding Photographer https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2019/4/erin-and-sarah---marquette-michigan-wedding-photographer These two. My heart was bursting for them the whole day. First of all, they are some of my best friends. Second of all, the LOVE between the two of them is unreal. When I tell you we are friends, I mean the kind of friends who drive to Kentucky together and camp out to see our favorite band (The Devil Makes Three) and the kind of friends you ask to officiate your wedding. (If you were at my wedding, you'll recognize Erin as the woman who asked us to promise to love the shit out of each other.) 

My husband, our dog, and I drove from Pennsylvania to Marquette Michigan in February for this one. When I say I love to drive I really mean it! Erin is from Marquette and made some recommendations on the wedding website and Cody and I followed it like it was an instruction guide. Hello, Baby Cakes and Jean Kay's Pasties

I hope you love the photos as much as Erin and Sarah love each other.

Look how cute my husband and I are in gnome form!

Photography Talk | Trust Means Everything and Shooting in the Snow is a Challenge https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2018/11/photography-talk-trust-means-everything-and-shooting-in-the-snow-is-a-challenge Kayla wanted snow. She got it. 

This session was scheduled last minute, when Kayla saw the weather forecast she reached out to me and asked if we could do some photos in the snow. My answer: Hell yes. 

Kayla and Matt were dream clients. Sometimes when I'm giving direction, I tell people to do things that I KNOW make me sound crazy, but I'm hoping for a genuine reaction. These two are as genuine as they come and had full trust in me to make images. This is huge. This was a bigger deal with this session than most because I really had to trust myself. I had to trust that the images were coming out clearly and as I wanted because I absolutely could not see. The camera was too snowy to see the screen and the snow was falling too hard as I was looking into the lens. So if you're reading this for photography tips, here's a big one. Understand your settings so you know what you're getting is technically correct, but trust your eyes over your lens. Look out from behind the camera and see what's in front of you with your own eyes. Trust yourself. 

Let's talk about light for a second. This day was dark to begin with, and it was almost sundown so it was even darker. I do not consider myself a natural light photographer because I will use a flash or light if I need to, but for this image I did not want to light the whole scene with a flash and I did not want to highlight those snowflakes. Enter the streetlight. This was just enough light to light up their faces without lighting the background behind them. (Light falls off to the square of it's power. Physics!)

On a side note, I did not enhance that blue, but I did bring down the saturation of the oranges so the color on the faces matched the background a little better. I'm not an over-processor, but I will do what is needed for a good image. 

Stats:

ISO: 800

F/Stop: 3.5 - I could have opened this up all the way, but I wanted to underexpose a bit to show the snow in that light. 

Shutter Speed: 1/100 - This is fast enough to freeze the motion of the couple but left a little blur in the snowflakes. 

This image was shot at 27mm using an L-Series Canon 24-70 f2.8 on a Canon 5D Mark III.

Ellicottville New York Wedding Photographer | Lacey Barber Photography | Ellen and Brian https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2018/11/ellen-and-brian---ellicottville-new-york-wedding-photographer      I travel a lot for weddings, so it's getting more and more rare for me to photograph weddings for friends from my little town of Port Allegany, Pennsylvania. When I do it's a real treat. I've known Ellen for basically my whole life, from Girl Scouts to Junior Olympic Volleyball. I don't know her husband, Brian, as well but they have been dating since high school! Let's just say there were a lot of "about time" jokes at this wedding. Aside from my connection to the couple, this wedding was special to me because it was my first time working at Holimont! I work in Ellicottville often, and have photographed several weddings at Holiday Valley, but I love a new venue to explore. I love Ellicottville, and will jump on any chance I can to work there. (Hello, Ellicottville Brewing Company and Dina's!)

Wills and Megan - Mattress Factory Pittsburgh Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2018/10/wills-and-megan---mattress-factory-pittsburgh-wedding As most of you know, I lived in Pittsburgh for 4 years and the city has a big piece of my heart. Years before I moved there, one of the first times I felt truly at home in the city was at The Mattress Factory. Beyond even the Yayoi Kusama and the James Turrells, the space is incredible on it's own. (I have a real thing for old industrial buildings.) From the moment I walked into that space, I've wanted to shoot a wedding there. 

Megan and Wills were one of those dream couples. Relaxed, friendly, and planning a unique artful wedding... They made my job incredibly fun.

I was pretty pumped when they asked me to photograph their wedding in Marquette Michigan this winter. 

One of my favorite things about Pittsburgh is that there are a million little spots to take photos around every corner. A totally in love couple and a photogenic city...what more could I even ask for? An adorable Pit Bull named Winnie?  Mr. Rogers? Icing on the cake.

I don't know anything about Star Wars. It's entirely possible that if I were to watch the movies I would fall in love with them. Maybe someday  I will. However, there are two things I love more than just about anything else in this world; when couples show their personality on their wedding day and interesting light. What better way to combine those two things than with a light saber?!? Sometimes my couples give me the best gifts without even realizing it. Alyssa and Justin's wedding was full full full of personal touches. (Alyssa's mom is a wedding planner!)

Sabrina and Cory - Seven Springs Pittsburgh Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2018/9/sabrina-and-cory---seven-springs-pittsburgh-wedding Y'all. I am the absolute worst at blogging. I knooowww this wedding was a year ago. However, I couldn't let it go another day without being on the website. It's too perfect. It was too much fun. Sabrina and Cory were those dream clients who let me take their engagement photos in a parking garage. Photographers talk about how much we love a trusting relationship with our clients. THAT is what we are talking about.

Did I mention that they took me to an old airplane runway at sunset just because Sabrina thought I would be excited about it? I've received very few gifts in my life that have been better than that. 
This was the first face I saw upon walking into the cabin at Seven Springs. Love.

Kari and Alex - Roulette, Pennsylvania Maternity Photographs https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2018/5/kari-and-alex---roulette-pennsylvania-maternity-photographs I am honest with my clients, so when Kari asked me to shoot her maternity photos, I told her upfront that I had never done maternity before. Fast forward a few emails and Kari and Alex met me at my store, Canoe Place Creative, in Port Allegany to discuss the shoot. When Alex asked if I'd shot family portraits, the answer was yes, so he decided to rename the maternity session to a "Pre-Family Session." Genius! I tried to capture these two just as I would a newly engaged couple, emphasizing the love between the two of them. The only difference being that two of them will soon be three! 

Kari and Alex, thank you so much for allowing me to photograph this moment in your lives! 

 

This is Kari's parents' property. Isn't it amazing! And that fog in the background...

Jason & Pam - Engagement Photos at Letchworth State Park https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2016/9/jason-pam---engagement-photos-at-letchworth-state-park When Pam asked me to travel to Letchworth State Park (NY) from Pittsburgh for her engagement session I was thrilled. For a girl who loves to drive, photograph, and be outdoors this was the perfect location. 

To top it all all off, Pam and Jason were so much fun to work with! I could have hiked around that park with them all day.

Y'all this was the first photo I took all day. Let's talk about a good start! 

Sometimes I'm low-key obsessed with a photo from the second it's captured. This is one of those photos.

    

Pam and Jason, I'm so looking forward to your wedding!

Questions! https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2016/9/questions Recently, I came across an article about questions brides and grooms should ask their wedding photographer. So I answered them! Here goes...

What best describes your photography style?

My style is a combination of photojournalism and classic portraiture. For a good part of the day, I love to be a fly on the wall and watch for the little moments that make a wedding day special. My portrait style is slightly more formal, but I still like couples to be relaxed and comfortable. Often I’ll tell a bride and groom to stand how they feel comfortable and adjust from there. I want to capture the day as it happens, not as it’s posed. 

 

Will the photos be retouched and color balanced? 

 

Yes! Every last one of your photos will be adjusted and color balanced. If you’re interested in the technical stuff, I white balance my camera several times throughout the event and make adjustments in Adobe Lightroom if necessary. When I do creative edits, such as black and white images, I’ll always give my clients the color copy as well. 

 

What's your favorite part of a wedding day to photograph?  

 

My very favorite part of the wedding day is when I get to spend a few minutes with the bride and groom alone to photograph them. This is usually right after the family and bridal party photos. Often times, this is as close to alone time as the couple will get throughout the whole day. It’s a great moment for me to express my creativity and for the couple to take a breath between the wedding and the reception. 

 

Do you shoot both digital and film?

 

Digital. I carry at least three professional camera bodies to every wedding. Depending on the situation, I carry one or two on me and keep the other as a backup. 

 

What is the deposit?

 

I charge a 15% deposit due when the initial contract is returned. This is what ensures your wedding date on my calendar! I have to be strict with this one as I’ve unfortunately been burned in the past. 

 

Will you be my actual photographer?

 

I will always be the main photographer. Second photographers are available by request but I will be there and I am the one who does all the editing after, so all the photos have uniform look.

 

Do you have backup photographers who will shoot the wedding if you're sick?

 

Yes. First of all, I would have to be damn near dead to miss an event. In the case that I break both my arms and legs or my fingers simultaneously fall off, I have a list of photographers that I know and trust that can step in to cover your wedding. If this happens, I will still edit all the photos myself. 

 

 

How long after the wedding do we get to see the photos?

 

I always tell people 90 days. If you need them sooner, please let me know and I’ll do my best to get them to you as quickly as possible. I try my best to get some teasers on Facebook as quickly as possible as well!

 

How many weddings do you do a weekend?

 

Generally one. On a rare occasion I will do a Friday night wedding then turn around and shoot a Saturday wedding. However, if there’s travel involved I’ll only do one per weekend. I’ll never ever schedule two weddings in the same day! 

 

What will you wear?

 

I keep it professional. The day is 100% not about me and I don't want to be noticed, so I go with head to toe black. I’m running around all day, so I do rock a pair of clean black sneakers.

Family Photos at Weddings - Hopefully Helpful Tips! https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2016/8/family-photos-at-weddings---hopefully-helpful-tips  

 
 

Let's be honest. Gathering your whole family in one location can be a real challenge. Weddings are often an opportunity for family members who haven't seen each other in years to catch up. They are also an opportunity for family photos. 

One of the most common questions people ask me is how to make the family photo process go smoother. After all, once this is over you can get to the party! I have a few tips that I hope y'all will find helpful. 

 

1. Get as many photos done before the ceremony as possible. Brides, if you don't want your fiancé to see you in your dress, you can take photos with just your side of the family or with just or bridesmaids. He can do the same. (Usually the guys photos get finished first because it takes them less time to get ready.) Keep in mind that if you are getting photos taken at the ceremony location, you will want to be out of sight about a half an hour before the ceremony to avoid running into any earlybird guests. 

If you don't care about him seeing you before the ceremony, you can do a "first look" where I'll get a shot of the first time he sees you in your dress. I cant recommend this enough. First look photos are SO cute! This is also great because you can get all the formal photos out of the way before the ceremony and you can relax after. I still like to take a few romantic shots of the bride and groom right after the ceremony. Those are almost always my favorite photos. :) 
 
2. Make an announcement at the rehearsal dinner that everyone in your family has to stick around for photos after the ceremony. (Or make sure they know what time to be there beforehand.) Sometimes the thing that takes the longest is wrangling up family members to get photos. 
 
3. Make a list of family members to be photographed (or groups like cousins, grooms sisters, etc…)  and give one to your photographer (preferably before the wedding day), one to a member of your family, and one to member of the groom's family. Choose someone who knows everyone's names and can help round up family members. This is a big one. Not only is it a huge time saver, a list also ensures that we get all the photos you want. It's easy to get swept up in the wedding day and forget!
 
 
4. Most importantly, if you would like advice or just to chat about ideas. Ask me! I'm always willing to help out in any way I can.

Jeff & Amy - Pittsburgh Wedding https://www.laceybarberphotography.net/blog/2016/6/jeff-amy---pittsburgh-wedding I love all my clients, but there's nothing more gratifying than working with the same family multiple times. (This is the third wedding I've done for a sibling of a previous client!) Four years ago, I photographed Jeff's older brother Matt's wedding to his wife Melissa. Amy caught the bouquet!

The rain. Of course it's not something anyone wants on their wedding day, but with the right outlook the rain can create some beautiful opportunities for photos. Jeff and Amy were champs! I don't think I heard either one of them stress about the weather all day!
