I came up with the idea for Day After Wedding Photos about 5 years ago. It started with a few distinct scenarios and limitations that left me with no other choice than to offer the couples the opportunity to shoot on another day, generally the day after their wedding, to create portraits we wouldn’t have time for on their wedding day.
Though at the time I didn’t think of it as being a unique idea, more of a way to take the pressure off the couple and myself on the wedding day, but it ended up being an opportunity to creatively photograph the the couple in their awesome wedding attire without any time constraints or location limitations.
It turns out it was a unique idea, at least the labeling and marketing of it was. Professional Photographer Magazine found my website and contacted me in 2012, they were interested in writing a story about how I came up with the idea. You can read the full story here: “Day-After Magic, Todd Surber is in the business of capturing happiness”.
I also created a blog post with pictures from the article. Featured In Professional Photographer Magazine
Day after wedding photos are, for me, a unique invitation to your own private photo session. Day two presents infinite options: you can bag the dress and clean the tux, take them out for another spin, or ditch them all together and put on that dress you’ve never found the perfect occasion for. The day after session presents the couple and their photographer with more time than on the day of the wedding, and the freedom to work without the concern of a little dirt on your beautiful gown. We love the idea of being able to take a little more time with our clients, free from schedule and weather constraints of the wedding day. Whether, the ceremony was too late in the evening to accomplish natural light portraits, or you are looking for more than what another photographer gave you, we jump at the chance to grab our gear and connect with clients to get even another opportunity to guarantee their happiness. Consider it weather insurance. We will stop at nothing to deliver incredible pictures that are more than you expect and everything you deserve. Take your time and get a little more edgy with your posing in order to master the editorial style of high fashion that takes on the personality of a glossy magazine photo, provoking emotion and encompassing what the first days of “man and wife” feel like. You have already documented the first kiss and the first dance, why not the first day of marriage? It’s a reason to wear your dress again and a chance to really push the boundaries of imagination to make pictures that will live on through generations and prove that marriage is not only a beautiful commitment, but it’s sexy too.
