Groom Inspiration | Photo of the Week

By, August 23, 2017

For our Photo of the Week, we’re bringing a little groom inspiration (groom-spiration?) With his white shawl lapel tux, and black bowtie, our groom Charles hit it out of the park. His ensemble was perfect for his chic wedding to Nikia at the US Grant. A look this classic deserved a solo stylized portrait! 

When photographing Charles, we couldn’t help bringing out his wistful expression and infectious smile. Enjoy :)Portrait of a handsome groom

Dressed to Impress | Groomsmen Getting Ready

By, March 15, 2016

We love witnessing the bromance between the groom and his buddies on the wedding day. While the bride is squared away with her ladies, our second shooters typically head over to the groom and his fellas. By having two photographers on the wedding day, our crew is able to divide and conquer, and capture the early moments of the day from both perspectives. The guys often create hilarious and unpredictable moments, leading to unforgettable images to enjoy for years to come.

When we first arrive, the groom and his buddies are usually getting dressed to impress. Once they are prepped and ready, there may be time to kick back, talk smack, or play a competitive game of pool with a beer (or two) to celebrate. We enjoy finding creative ways for the guys to let loose and show off their personalities.

For a stylish collection of dapper dudes preparing to tie the knot, check out some of our favorite pre-ceremony moments.

Groomsmen fix ties in front of mirror

With so many groomsmen and only one mirror (above), we had to get a little creative. After spotting this awesome multi-paned mirror in the lobby, we made sure there was enough prep room for all the guys at Vanessa and Justin’s wedding.

We love when grooms pick fun, vibrant details to match their personalities. When we noticed Anton getting a bowtie assist from one of his buddies on his wedding day (see above), we couldn’t resist capturing a photo in hopes of learning a trick or two ourselves.

Sometimes, couples exchange a special pre-ceremony gift, such as during Begum and Michael’s wedding (left) or Katie and John’s (right). We like to capture intimate moments like this, where we can grab the Groom’s reaction as he reveals what’s inside.

While Steven and his groomsmen shared a few rounds of jokes, we captured this genuine reaction from the groom, whose laughter couldn’t be contained. By staying alert and focused, we were able to jump on this fleeting moment before it passed.

Between funky colored socks, dapper-looking bowties or fancy watches, the groom’s details can be just as colorful and entertaining as the bride’s.

Daniel and his buddies are avid skateboarders, and after spying a stack of decks in the corner, we were determined to put them to good use. The group was more than willing to entertain us with some sweet tricks. By letting groomsmen show off their inner daredevils, we were able to document a fun and spontaneous moment.

Groom Style | Every Girl’s Crazy ‘Bout a Sharp Dressed Man

By, March 03, 2016

It’s time to pay tribute to the grooms! As photographers, we appreciate when a groom wears something distinctive to match his personality, and rocks it with confidence. Throw a few sharp-dressed buddies into the mix and you are ready for standout groomsmen photos.

Although the black tuxedo is a classic favorite, and never goes out of fashion, there are many additional style options available to modern guys. We’ve seen grooms in impressive tux colors such as sleek navy, white, and even red, as you will see below. We’ve also photographed grooms taking suits to the next level by pairing them with bold ties and bowties. The contemporary groom isn’t afraid to accessorize either, using accents like cufflinks, kerchiefs, pins, shoes and watches to refine the final look.

We would like to showcase some of the suave looks we’ve seen over the past year. Here is a highlight of grooms suiting up for their wedding in ultimate style.
