Amy Rebecca Photography » Something Different Wedding Photography

I had meetings with some wonderful newly engaged couples over the last week or so. Today, I met with Julian & Lauren and I am so excited to be shooting their wedding next July! Lauren was prepared, as most brides are, so I thought I would take a minute to briefly try to answer some frequently asked ???’s…….

1. Would I describe myself as mostly a photojournalistic or traditional shooter?
Answer: I like to be a nice mixture, but lean more towards the photojournalism side. I would say 70/30…..70% of the day being capturing candid moments, the actual ceremony, and all the fun of the reception. 30% of the day……I try to gently guide couples into natural/fun poses. I realize that the majority of clients still want to have some traditional family photos and those are included as well.

2. How long does it take to receive my wedding photos after the wedding day?
Answer: My goal is within 3-4 weeks for you to see them online….then, within a week or so of that time, you will receive your proofs.

3. How many pictures do I get ?
Answer: I go through all photos one by one to present you with the best 300-400 photos to represent your day. If a cd is included in your package, I will sometimes put a folder on it to give you some fun extras/out-takes that you may want to see.

4. Do I get a copyright release with purchase of cd/or if is included in package?
Answer: YES

5. Who is your second photographer?
Answer: My husband, Max. He is a great compliment, especially for getting another viewpoint and wonderful candid shots. Sometimes, as a bonus, my daughter is able to accompany us as a 3rd shooter/lighting assistant. We are a family business ๐Ÿ™‚

Red…..the color of LOVE….and Ohio State! I knew when we did engagement pics on the Ohio St. campus, that Michael and Barbara were full of love for each other and the Buckeyes.
Anyone that knows me, knows that I have a thing for shoes. Barbara had the best of both worlds-FAB red ceremony shoes and YES–Ohio State flip-flops for the reception. LOVED IT!!

The rain cleared and allowed us to sneak a few shots by the water.

Thanks for everything!! Many Happy Years Together!!

Eric and Kristi are used to adventure! Their weekends are full of fun and excitement with sky-diving, but this weekend was a different adventure—their wedding. We had a little rain at Confluence Park, but after the ceremony, the rain subsided and gave way to some fun shots over looking the city. And at the end of the night, their friends and family surrounded them in dance. It was a beautiful thing to see!
Hopefully I will be able to photograph more highlights of your married life as, in time, your family grows ๐Ÿ™‚

Combine good friends and M.J.’s Thriller and you get the shot on the left…..


I love an engagement session that starts with cream slushies from Sonic and pics in front of the Burrito Buggy! Matt and Alicia were up for whatever craziness I had in mind. And as anyone that knows me will testify, if we can add food and picture-taking together, then I am a HAPPY woman! I saw the Burrito Buggy when doing a wedding a couple weeks ago, but we were a little time crunched so I just stashed the idea away in my head until it was possible to get a fun-lovin’ couple to kiss in front of it. This was the time……we even asked permission beforehand and the lady was nice enough to allow it.

I LOVE the backlighting………

I wanted an engagement ring pic that wasn’t the normal……so……….

I was so happy to be able to share another milestone with this gorgeous little family!

And Jen, I am sorry, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the slobber on his perfect little face ๐Ÿ™‚

Our engagement session with Mark & Leeann was a mini-tour of Columbus. They wanted to have their babies (doggies) in the pics, too. Very Important. One of them will even make the wedding day photos ๐Ÿ™‚
So our journey began at their home. Then, off to Hoover Dam and downtown Columbus.
My daughter and I had so much fun……she got some great shots too!
Thanks for making us feel like family !
And Mark, Max said he wants to play golf with you. I feel some fun pictures coming on!! Leeann, Jaz, and I will take care of the golf cart driving ๐Ÿ™‚

Courtney wanted to marry her best friend……she found that in John. And when you promise to spend eternity with someone, you want to have a little fun along the way, right? I love the way John makes Courtney laugh!
Thanks for keepin’ it real with our engagement session and letting me in on some of the fun. And if I can say so myself…”Ya’ll are just so cute!”
