A Sparkling “I Do” | Photo Of The Week

By, March 04, 2016

Even though wedding rings sparkle on their own, we decided to make this image shine even brighter! The recipe behind this Photo of the Week went something like this: place the rings on reflective surface, ask a guest to borrow her gorgeous gold and stone encrusted clutch (which we promptly returned), and hold the clutch very close over the rings to capture the reflection. We then used lighting to make every surface pop with pure majestic sheen, and voilà!

Hot (and Cool) Wedding Colors | Pantone’s 2016 Colors of the Year

By, January 12, 2016

Pantone 2016 Color of the YearAlong with the New Year comes the announcement of Pantone’s Color of the Year! For 2016, Pantone broke from tradition for the first time in history, and made not one but two selections: Rose Quartz and Serenity. These colors combine aspects of warm and cool tones, creating a perfect sense of fresh balance and calm. We decided to show how Pantone’s winners can add to the wedding day fun, and create new possibilities this wedding season.

As you will see in the photos below, both Rose Quartz and Serenity make for dynamic and memorable wedding accent colors. The subtle, muted blues of Serenity are cool and tranquil, while Rose Quartz complements with its punch of pink vibrance. When paired together, the romantic, sunset effect will leave your guests enchanted. Both colors are great any time of year, and can be augmented by a variety of greens and purples, or splashes of silver and yellow. In addition, these hues can be found in the natural environment, creating a dramatic and artistic backdrop for wedding day images.

If you’re looking to add an elegant twist to your big day, we’ve gathered the perfect inspiration for incorporating these trending colors. Scroll through the images below highlighting Rose Quartz and Serenity, and make sure to pin your favorites :)

Wedding Photography Tips (Video) | Our Wedding Week Appearance on the CW

By, September 16, 2014

True Photography is the featured photographer for the CW’s Wedding Week, and our photos will be showcased throughout the week’s broadcasts. In fact, our very own Meghan was on The CW’s morning show yesterday! She talked about tips for preparing for your wedding day photography, in order to get the best results.

Meghan also shared a few examples of our favorite recent images, and had a nice chat with the host on live air :) Here are the tips she shared (and the video is below):

TIP #1: When looking for a photographer, we feel that the most important thing is to connect with the company’s work

  • First and foremost, choose a photographer’s work that INSPIRES you.
  • Put pricing aside at first so you can make the best decision.
  • If you initially love the style and quality of photography you see, chances are you are going to be super happy with your own photos.

TIP #2: Let your photographer know what is most important to you

  • As photographers, we’re an open book – we want to hear your thoughts! If you have initial ideas (likes, must-have photos etc) we’d love to hear them.
  • Tell us what you’re like as a couple (traditional, fun, a mix of both), and what your event will be like. This will give us inspiration.
  • We learn a lot by getting to know you. A great photographer will produce images that reflect you without you having to dictate every picture :)

TIP #3: Take time to enjoy the day. Don’t be afraid to have fun.

  • The key is to prepare up until the wedding day, and then enjoy the ride.
  • If you’re having fun and celebrating, this will show in your images.
  • There will be surprises. Just know that. Things happen, so just expect the unexpected!
