I bet you didn't know there are roughly 5 different genres of weddings did you? That's why wedding photographers require a detailed questionnaire and an in person consultation session before booking you. Because weddings can differ so much there is no standard type of wedding.
STYLIZED BRIDAL SESSION
A stylized shot is when a photographer hires a model, makeup artist, hair artist, and usually a few assistants to "stylize" the photograph to exact detail to make it look flawless, or magazine worthy.
Bridal Sessions are when a photographer does the couples' wedding portraits before your wedding day, at least a month prior. This session is typically booked the same day when your hair and makeup test is done, so you look your best and exact to your day of wedding.
Your photographer does a full pre-wedding session with you and your significant other in a location of prior choosing. A bridal session is professional portraits without the Wedding Day pressure. You can relax, have fun, and let your photographer create some truly fine art worthy images they would otherwise not have been able to do the day of your wedding. Timing is everything, that's why ever aspect of these sessions are geared towards giving you the best lighting, location, and experience.
Not everybody is a fit for big weddings. And that is ok. Whether you need a photographer for just the ceremony, reception, or to drive around all day in a party bus and photograph at certain locations of Seattle, WA we want you to know we would love to join you. We will even work with you to pre-designate locations we will hit. It's your day, spend it how you want to. In a house of God, in a house of the the state, or outdoors, it's about you two committing the rest of your life together and nothing else.

It's your wedding day, yes it's stressful, yes something always goes wrong. But why should that effect your images? Have a little fun, throw a bit crazy in love in there too. You really never know what sort of outcome will reveal. That little bit of different may become your favorite photo!
Let your photographer do their magic. After all, isn't that why you hired them? Each wedding photographer will have a completely different style then the next. Look at their style, the colors they use in editing, or style of portraiture, weigh your options. Before you book ask yourself, "what style do I want my wedding pictures to look like?" With Straus Arts you are going to receive a more vibrant, but clean and refreshing look. A look that 20 years down the road you won't regret booking because they look outdated. Minus the dress.
I had a wedding adventure of my very own too. It may not have been the wedding of my dreams, but I married the man of my dreams. The day was all about us. That's all that matters, and besides this means I can have a big marriage renewal in which I will hire an incredible wedding photographer.
