Love & Lavender – Burney Wedding – 051317

AED Couple: Rebecca & Jacob Burney

Married On: May 13, 2017

Ceremony & Reception Venue: Della Terra Mountain Chateau

What We’ll Never Forget:

>Rebecca & Jacob hired AED for full-service wedding planning and we had so much fun working with them and their families to plan the most perfect wedding day!

>Rebecca & Jacob live in Maryland so when they came into town a few months before their wedding we packed the weekend full of fun tastings, mock up appointments and meetings with their amazing vendors.

>The look of their wedding was stunning. The varieties of purples and golds fit perfectly with the venue and the floral arrangements from Newberry Brothers brought the whole look together.

>The couple had so many fun celebrations during their ceremony, including the Groom walking down the aisle to the Superman theme song, a sand ceremony with a live performance by a friend, an African jumping of the broom tradition, and a bubble send-off into a decorated golf cart!

>Both Rebecca & Jacob surprised each other with gifts! Rebecca gave Jacob socks, superman cufflinks, and an adorable surprise video that matched his engagement video, by Kelsey Luciano Productions, for him to watch. Jacob gave Rebecca a stunning bracelet. So much love.

>They gave their guests beautiful lavender soap favors, as well as adorable hangover kits that included a small Gatorade bottle, Tums, Advil, and pretzels – what fun ideas!

>Rebecca & Jacob were so sweet to mention Ansley Event Design in their toast! They are such a fun-loving couple and you could see examples of this throughout the whole day, especially during their first dance – all smiles!

Remembering Through Pictures…Choose Wisely

Your wedding pictures will tell your story over and over again. The emotions and events captured by your photographer will allow you to relive the day, helping you remember exactly how you felt, who was there to share in the memories and how amazing everything turned out.

So, picking your perfect wedding photographer is absolutely important and Ali, from Ali & Garrett Wedding Photographers, helps you do just that by answering our interview questions below.

Why do we think Ali & Garrett Wedding Photographers is so great? Because they capture every emotion felt by not only the bride and groom, but their guests as well. And, when you get your pictures back from them, you can’t help but get caught up in the looks on peoples’ faces, the tears captured on camera and the smile on his and her face. Thank you for sharing all these beautiful pictures with us Ali!

AED : What is the best way for a couple to find their wedding photographer?
Ali : Friends and other vendors whom you are working with. Referrals are going to be your best bet as far as finding someone who will fit the overall feel of your wedding, and your personality.

AED : What are some good questions for a couple to ask the photographers they are considering hiring?
Ali : I think my favorite question that brides ask me is “What are some of your favorite moments to capture?” Honestly, to me, my answer will not only tell the bride what type of photographer I am (photojournalist, posed, etc) but it will also give her a feel of the types of things we capture throughout the day.

AED : What will help couples decide which photographer to go with (once they’ve interviewed/met with a few options)?
Ali : Go with the person who you click with. You want to make sure you connect with whoever is photographing your wedding, you want them to put you at ease, and make being in front of the camera is fun. Your photographer will also be one of the people you talk to the most during your planning journey (besides your planner of course :) ).

AED : What is the biggest mistake a couple can make when choosing their photographer?
Ali : Going with a photographer solely because they are inexpensive. I totally understand that price is a huge factor and you have to stick to your overall budget, but deciding to use a photographer based on price is a risky decision, not only have you most likely not fallen in love with them or their work, but I can’t tell you how many times we’ve heard of brides being bummed with their wedding photos because they made a decision based on price. After the cake has been cut and everyone has gone home, your wedding photos are what you have left to remember your day.

AED : Great advice Ali! Now, let’s talk about your fabulous work!

AED : What does Ali & Garrett Wedding Photographers specialize in? What is your style?
Ali : We specialize in weddings for the rustic, chic, outdoorsy bride. Our style is very clean. We want your photos to be timeless, so our editing is very minimal and the photos are focused around the the bride and the groom.

AED : What kind of couple is a good match for Ali & Garrett Wedding Photographers?
Ali : Our perfect couple is one that likes to be active on the weekend, and enjoys the Colorado outdoors. Our brides love a cute pair of heels and their amazing designer dress. Details are extremely important to them in telling their story. And we have to have a couple who loves to laugh. :)

AED : What do you do differently than other photographers out there?
Ali : We are big into personal connections. We want to know our brides and grooms more than just how they are behind our camera. We want to show up on the day and give hugs, not handshakes.

AED : Why did you choose to become a wedding photographer?
Ali : I got into photography right out of high school, and started photographing anything I could. But I began to fall in love with photographing people in love, it was so natural. So we phased out of portraits and focused 100% on photographing weddings. Happiness is so contagious and we wanted nothing more than to experience that every year, several times a year.

AED : What has been your favorite wedding to shoot and why?
Ali : I would say that we don’t have a favorite, but we have favorite moments out of each one. Like when Michelle’s brother-in-law walked her down the aisle (her dad passed away a few short months before her wedding) and they said a prayer for him, there wasn’t a dry eye during that ceremony. Or, how when Randi & Mike got announced into their reception they had a whole choreographed dance with their bridal party… It’s things like that that make every wedding so very different and so hard to pick a favorite.
