Meeting the Bride and Groom and Their Family

Lipton & Lucy - Your happy photographers!

We love meeting the bride and groom and their families. We all discover if we like each other enough to participate in the wedding together. After all, we spend a lot of time together. We get up close and personal. It’s important to like each other.

Some people want only to get a quote online with no meeting of us at ShadeTree Production. I say, ‘What’s the point?’ People who live in Sri Lanka can definitely come to visit us, meet us, decide if they like our personalities, see our work in person and get a quote designed especially for their special day.

People who are out of the country and have to plan everything online spend a lot of time ‘talking’ to us; chatting, skyping and Viber calling. We get to know each other over time.

Speaking of personalities – I’ve heard many stories about photographers being bossy and rude and just plain unlikable. IMHO the bride and groom need to have friendly photographers, and even fun ones (like us!). I once saw a dresser make the bride cry – how can that be? I’ve heard many stories about photographers scolding the couple if they don’t pose the way they are told to. Come on!

Everything on the special day itself should be special. Happy. Stress free. That’s why we suggest that the couple designate a wedding CEO; a person who can make things happen so that the bride or the groom is not constantly on the phone fixing problems. Wedding planners are good for that. Sans a wedding planner, a good bossy family member is the perfect wedding CEO.

There’s a lot to think of before the wedding – during the wedding the bride and groom shouldn’t have to think, just enjoy!

Silly happy couple!

Very happy!

Happy family!
