neil & michelle - reception || manila destination wedding photographer

today’s wonderful wedding wednesday is the last installment of neil & michelle’s wedding that i second shot with pilar in the summer.

it’s the reception details.

there are two things that are important when it comes to reception photos, i think. ok, maybe 3. :)

1) DETAILS - the amount of money, time, effort and love poured into the reception is huge. so photos of all the amazing details that are at the reception are important. the dinner settings, the floral arrangements, the menus and programs, the room layout. it’s endless. i LOVE shooting details. so this part of the job is sheer delight for me. :)

2) CANDIDS - the couple wants to remember their friends that were there. for me, this is where i throw my jacket off, so to say, and get down and dirty. by that i mean, this is where i get to even act a little cheesy (if you can imagine!) to get shots of the guest LOOKING like their having a great time, even if they may not be. i do pretty much everything to get them to smile. :) it pays off!

3) EMOTIONAL SHOTS - these USUALLY happen during the speeches. the laughing hysterically, the tears..you know, the ones that when everyone later sees them, they all at the same time go “awwwwwwwwwwwww!” and relive it all again? ya those ones.

so here’s a few shots from neil & michelle’s reception.

enjoy!
