Welcome To Memory Lane Photos

Affordable Wedding Photographer for the Chattanooga, Knoxville, and surrounding areas provided by Memory Lane Photos. Serving intimately small to large grandeur ceremonies. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. I am honored that you have stopped by my website in search of a wedding photographer.

 

I'd like to share with you the details of what my wedding photography services are all about. As owner and photographer of Memory Lane Photos, it is my desire to provide you with the absolute best possible professional services and products to you at an affordable price. I want to make sure the memories of your wedding day are preserved through a timeless keepsake of images. Because your wedding day is very special, it is essential for you to be comfortable and relaxed with your photographer, as these emotions will be reflected in your wedding images. A wedding day is full of hidden moments of love. As your photographer, I will deliver your completed products in storybook order. By doing this as you reminisce through your wedding portraits, the images will tell the story of your wedding day as it unfolded.

I want you to know what to expect if you choose Memory Lane Photos as your wedding photographer.

Your wedding day appointment will be made secure upon the receipt of your deposit. The deposit you pay to reserve your wedding date will be applied as payment toward your final order when you make your selection after the wedding. Once your appointment is secure, the next phase is basically a waiting period until your big day arrives. Depending on how far in advance you book your wedding, I will periodically check in with you. The purpose of this is so we can both stay on the same page as far as any concerns with wedding details that may need to be addressed. As the date approaches, I'll be in contact with you more frequently, usually checking in a couple weeks before, a week before, and finally 2 days before the wedding, just to ensure all the details are covered.  This helps us both be comfortable and assured that we are all on the same page as far as any changes or special circumstances are concerned.

You will spend a lot of time with your photographer the day of your wedding. Keep in mind that the length of time that you see your wedding photographer on the day itself is just the tip of the iceberg; the photographer will also be spending many days sorting photos, ensuring colors are accurate, designing and assembling albums. Depending on your package, the artistically enhanced images are then collaborated for you to enjoy in a professionally designed storybook wedding album. Flowers wilt, food and wine are consumed, and a great celebration becomes a faded memory over time. However, aside from your rings (and your spouse of course!), the photographs are the only tangible reminder you will keep from the whole day. It is essential to choose a photographer who understands how you want your special day to be preserved. Once your big day has arrived, I will arrive at the designated time we had previously discussed. Upon my arrival, I will immediately check in with the bride to let her know I am there and to get any last minute requests that she may have. Afterwards, I will dedicate some pre-ceremonial time photographing both the bride and the groom, separately of course. Some of the before shots of the groom will include the groom alone, with his best man, with the groomsmen, and with his parents if they have arrived. The before shots of the bride will be a bit more in detail. These will include (but not limited to) shots getting ready with your hairdresser and makeup stylist, and before shots of you and your mother/father, and with your bridesmaids. When applicable, a generation photo of you, your mother and your grandmother will be taken. And as always, remember that during this private time prior to the wedding ceremony, any special request photos will be honored.

Ok, let's face the fact that none of the guys like to get all dressed up. Having your guy and all his close friends all decked out for this important day is a happy moment for everyone. Therefore it is a must when capturing your wedding photography to get some shots of these fine looking gentlemen.

As owner and photographer of Memory Lane Photos, I have made it a practice of mine to photograph the members of the wedding party as individuals as well as in groups. This will provide each person an opportunity to obtain portraits of themselves for their family and friends. Making the wedding day special for everyone.

As your ceremony time approaches, I will be sticking close by to the bride and her escort. I will be taking advantage of this quiet time to get some special photos of some moments between the bride and her escort. As the ceremony begins, I will be making my way into the ceremony area to get into position for capturing those special moments where the entire wedding party one by one makes their way down the aisle to take their assigned places for the ceremony. Some other photos you can expect me to capture during this time will be of the parents and grandparents being seated. Finally the bride with her escort will make her way down the aisle. This is always a very special moment I capture. As the bride takes her position beside the groom,  I will make my way around to be non-intrusive while photographing the ceremony.

The tradition of the father giving away his daughter has been around for many years. A father giving away his daughter is a symbol of his blessing of the marriage. In some cases, brides for one reason or another may have escorts other than their father, or choose to walk alone. The choice is yours and it is my desire that this moment will be captured with beautiful images.

The wedding guestbook is an important part of the day.  It provides a scripted record of who was present to share your special day with both of you. A keepsake that you both can enjoy for years to come. Immediately following the ceremony, you will be introduced for the first time as "Mr. & Mrs.". This is a dream you both have shared for some time and this is the moment that it begins to sink in that you are now man and wife. At this time, usually an announcement is made for your guest to proceed towards your reception. I will then generally shoot the posed photos with your wedding party and families. The entire wedding party is brought together to pose with the bride and groom. We also capture the traditional photos of the bride and groom along with their parents, grandparents, siblings, etc. Any special photo request that you have will be honored

Perhaps the most well-known wedding tradition associated with the wedding cake is the joint task of cutting the first piece of the cake by the bride and groom. It symbolizes the first task in the couple's life together and is a key image for the wedding photographer to capture. When it comes to feeding each other a piece of cake, the choice is yours to make. Some couples choose to engage in this tradition either gently or humorously, while others chose to pass on the opportunity.

The photographer's role in the wedding is usually complete after the going away shots are made. Of course this varies from wedding to wedding based upon the bride and groom's decision of  having a garter and bouquet toss.
