Everyone at Ovation Images, Pittsburgh’s Premier Wedding Photographers, would like to wish you and yours a very happy Mother’s Day! So be sure to take time out today to tell mom why you love her so much. We know we love the mothers of our couples for so many reasons, but mostly because you created the beautiful children that we get to photograph on one of the biggest days of their lives! So thank you to all of the moms out there who have loved unconditionally, picked up the pieces when things were going wrong, and chose to take on the hardest job out there- being a mom!

Ovation Images Wedding Tip #85:

Have someone drive the route during the week before your wedding to look for traffic delays so those can be factored into your schedule and alternate routes planned. Be alert to the fact that roads and bridges that may be open on weekdays might be closed for road work on Saturdays.  At Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers, we take no chances; we always drive the entire route before your wedding.

It is a new year and with the new year comes resolutions. While we here at Ovation Images plan on continuing our resolution to take the best wedding photos in Pittsburgh, we know many brides have made a resolution to look their best on their wedding day, and with tips from Ovation Images, it is easy!

  • Eating well should be at the top of your to do list. You want to look and feel your best for your wedding and eating well is the best place to start!
  • Don’t tan or apply any tanning lotion within two weeks of your wedding day. If you burn or overdo accidentally, we have no way to fix that in your pictures. Also, most gowns will show strap lines and other lines from tanning. Two weeks allows time for those lines to fade.
  • Don’t use any glitter. It reflects light in distracting sparkles that are impossible to tell from tiny beads of shiny sweat. Glitter sparkles just have to be removed from your photographs, often at additional cost.

The holiday season is the biggest time for engagements, so if your man “pops the question” this winter be sure to check these items off of your to-do list immediately:

  • Get a manicure. Everyone will be asking to see your ring and taking photos of your new bling – make sure it looks it’s best next to freshly painted nails!
  • Sign up with Pinterest- it is a bride-to-be’s paradise. You could spend days on end clicking through DIY wedding details, inspiring photos, and millions of wedding planning tips! Get an inspiration board together so you go into appointments with a solid idea of what you want from each vendor. Bonus points if you download the app for your phone so you can show them photos of that you love.
  • Have the “money talk” with your fiance and whomever else may be helping you to pay for the wedding. It is better to start off knowing exactly how much you can spend rather than cutting out details, which you have become attached to, later.
  • Insure your ring. This is often over looked, but very important. You have waited long enough for that “rock”, so be sure to keep it covered in case of an emergency.
  • Call Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers! You will want to make sure you book your date early to ensure you will get flawless memories of your big day! Plus, the engagement session can help you get a jump start on save the dates!

Ovation Images Wedding Tip #61:

Hold hands…. a lot! Someone once told me that she and her husband have completely different wedding day memories because they were constantly caught talking to different people. On your wedding day, if you are holding hands you are much less likely to get pulled in seperate directions. Therefore, you will spend the day together, create memories together, and who wouldn’t want to hold the hand of the one the love the most?? After all, your day is about celebrating your love!

As an added bonus, your wedding photographer will love to capture candid wedding day photos of you holding hands!!

The best wedding receptions all have one thing in common… DANCING! If you plan on an evening reception with dancing to follow, keep the dance floor close to the bar. Having the bar and the dance floor in separate rooms will result in your guests choosing one over the other, and you want everyone together for the party! Plus, having everyone on the dance floor can make for once in a lifetime wedding photography! At Ovation Images, Pittsburgh Wedding Photographers, we LOVE fun wedding reception photography!!

Ovation Images loves kids! But sometimes having kids at a wedding can be a touchy subject. Here are some tips to help make your Pittsburgh Wedding kid friendly!
  • If you are inviting children to the wedding and reception, ask the caterer to prepare kids meals. This will save on food and money, and the kids will love it.
  • If you are having a large wedding that includes many children, consider hiring a few babysitters to occupy the kids into the night so the parents can enjoy themselves too.

Ovation Images Wedding Tip #14:

Steal at least five minutes away from the crowd to be alone before the end of the night! Have a moment to just take each other in and laugh about all the things you wanted to say to one another but couldn’t because everyone was around!
