Is an Intimate Wedding Right for You | West Palm Beach Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

When I began photographing weddings 12 years ago they were completely different. Wedding magazines had been around for a while, but wedding blogs were a newer thing. Pinterest wasn’t a thing. You would cut out photographs and tips from magazines and put them into a folder. Now, we have the internet and social media at our fingertips. This is a wonderful thing, but it can also be overwhelming and make some couples obsessive. Thanks to wedding blogs, it almost feels like a competition to have your wedding featured or to have the prettiest details. While details are an important part of your wedding day, they are certainly not what it’s about or what your guests will take away from the day.

Georgia Farm Wedding | Albany Georgia Wedding Photographer | Shannon Griffin Photography

There are details from this wedding that will live with me forever. When Alexandra contacted me about photographing her wedding, one of the first things she mentioned was that her mother had passed away. She told me that her mom loved red roses and that there would be little touches of red roses throughout the day to remember her by. They placed red roses on the chair her mother would have sat in during the ceremony and then again at the reception. She also took a handwritten note that her mom had written her and got her handwriting embroidered on a handkerchief. Alexandra and her father had a very emotional first look with each other, as they talked about and remembered her mom. It was truly hard to keep my eyes dry throughout the day, but it was amazing how you could feel her mother in the presence of all of the family and friends that surrounded the couple.

Virginia and Josh had such a classic, gorgeous wedding that took place on the St. Augustine Green in Rosemary Beach. Rosemary Beach is one of my favorite locations to photograph wedding and families because of the clean and neutral aesthetic. I love that the couple decided to keep all of the details just as classic and clean. The lush greens against all of that white was just breathtaking.

One of my jobs as a wedding photographer is to capture the "details" of the wedding day. This is something that I go over with my couples when we are doing their timeline. "Please make sure that you have all of your details ready to be photographed, such as your wedding dress, invitations, rings, tie, cufflinks, etc." I actually really love photographing the details, don't get me wrong, but they are not why I got into weddings…
