Wedding Photography: 21% of Brides said they’d spend MORE if doing it again!

HEADLINE: Wedding Photography: 21% of Brides said they’d spend MORE if doing it again! SHOCK!!

Well, not so much of a shock to us to be fair….but it’s now it has been brought to more Bride-to-be’s attention! Past Bride’s were asked what they’d spend more if they could do their wedding again. what would you do differently spend more wedding photographer new york bride photogrpahy by Justin and Emily Krause Bridgwater burnham taunton weston somerset deveon cornwall bristol london crop

Every wedding has it’s own unique moments, it’s own  story and way it will be remembered; the bride’s beautiful dress, the moving speeches, the ushers forgetting the buttonholes, Bestman forgetting the rings, the bride getting dropped during her first dance, the Bestman having a flat tyre, the vicar getting the brides name wrong in the ceremony. These all make your wedding special and personal to you (and ones we’ve experienced first hand!). But if you’re already married, would you change anything from your day?

Day Trip to Lapland

Day Trip to Lapland

Emily, Lapland Finland. Bath Christmas Market Photography. Monarch Airways Charter flight

As you may know Emily and I took a trip to Lapland courtesy of Bath Tourism & Canterbury Travels. We couldn’t take Matilda as we didn’t have a passport for her and according to the passport office we couldn’t get her first passport in less than 7 days. As it also happens the Travel Company don’t provide snowsuits for under 2’s anyhow so she would have froze!

Our day started at 4am, up showered and dressed with the all important coffee in hand ready to meet our friends, Ben and Katie, for a 6am Check-in at Bristol Airport. With our e-tickets and passports in hand it all got very real when we sailed through check-in (I really like flying with only hand luggage!) and the excitement of going to a winter wonderland to see Santa in his actual home in Lapland really started to kick in! We went through the ever necessary security checks – which really is a more of a rigmarole for photographers than the average traveler, having to take out the cameras, lenses and iPad (on which I’m writing this blog on the flight home with everyone else on the plane asleep). Even with all the kit out the bag I always seem to set the scanners off 9 times out of 10 (I will never forget my public strip search in Dubai International when we flew back from a wedding in Malaysia…all shades of dignity left, embarrassed on the floor).

Camera equipment for the Lapland Trip

We had to decide what camera equipment for the Lapland Trip we needed. Obviously a bit of a photographic opportunity which couldn’t be wasted but what should we take that will cope with the temperatures over there?

Find Us

Finding our Studio

Our studio is in Bridgwater in the beautiful county of Somerset. It’s pretty easy to find us! However, unless you already know where we are you won’t know the studio is there if the studio is closed….and that’s how we like it. We’re not at the studio full-time due to having other photography commitments elsewhere and Emily being an Ofsted Registered Childminder, Chair of the Somerset Childminders Association and Lead Childminder for the Bridgwater Area means we typically only do shoots on Friday’s, Saturday’s and some Sunday’s. If we had a high-street or more prominent location the studio would look closed a lot of of the time which wouldn’t reflect well on the business and certainly doesn’t reflect how busy we are!

Wedding Photographer Fail! (Make sure your Photographer has backups!)

Ok so I know this might be classed as bad taste but I had to post this and I’m just praying that karma doesn’t come right around and bite me! I am honestly doing it as a service to show what can happen…

We’re not really sure why the bride or groom didn’t try to stop or warn the poor fella but well….they didn’t…..resulting in very badtimes.

I shall, however, turn this around and make it into a post to warn future brides & grooms about the importance of making sure their wedding photographers have back-up equipment.
