Kevin + Jordan

Spring House Hotel

New Shoreham, RI

Kevin and Jordan’s Block Island destination wedding was a beachy, boho masterpiece! This was an emotional, meaningful weekend for Jordan’s family, as they have vacationed on Block Island for generations prior. Our wedding photography and videography team had the best time getting to know the bride and groom over the long weekend they spent together. Creativity ran wild as we explored all the island had to offer through drone coverage and renting some mopeds prior to the day of the wedding! This fun loving, down to earth couple made the weekend unforgettable.

I can’t help but smile and tear up as I write this review for Move Mountains. We partnered with them for our wedding in September on Block Island, Rhode Island and we could not have worked with a more perfect team to capture our special wedding weekend. From our initial conversations a year before through the final logistics of the big day, it felt like we were working with a group of our best friends. It was easy, natural and amazing. We had the awesome opportunity to work with 5 amazing MM team members. They were so incredibly helpful when organizing the weekend with us. I haven’t even gotten to the final product - our pictures and videos! We received our AMAZING pictures so quickly and I was at a loss for words when looking through them. All the emotions came flooding back and I couldn’t believe how beautiful they were. We’re so excited to receive our videos soon and I know they will be absolutely breathtaking. Thank you MM for being so incredibly wonderful during the best weekend of our lives! We love you guys!

The Morning Of

Getting the Best Bride Prep Photos

You wouldn't think it at first, but some of our favorite wedding photos/videos are taken in the morning when the bride is getting ready! It’s the beginning of the day, excitement is in the air, and we don’t want to miss a thing. This is a critical time for your wedding photographers to capture some really important photos that you’ll love to look back on later. In order to make sure that your bride prep looks great, here are a few suggestions that we can offer!

Location

We recommend choosing a space/location that is open, has plenty of natural light and is free of clutter! This will ensure the photographer or videographer has plenty of light and room to work with and will keep your photos looking nice and clean! Try to avoid hotel rooms that are cramped and don't provide much natural lighting. Indoor lighting can be difficult to work with and usually produces orange skin tones, and hotel rooms can also be limiting when trying to find a nice place to shoot details, such as the dress! Often times these rooms have TVs, phones, desks and lamps which can take away from the elegance of the dress and other details that need to be shot.

If you've already scheduled a hotel or are in a smaller/darker space this is totally okay! Here are a few tips for working in this type of space:

  • Make sure your hair and make up artists position you by a window (This is important in any scenario, we love natural light!)

  • Keep indoor lighting off, it may feel dark but the pictures and video will still come out bright!

  • Keep the space clean

 
 

Details

Be sure to bring all the details that you want us to photograph or catch on video on the morning of. This may include but is not limited to:

  • Shoes

  • Dress

  • Wood or Custom hanger for the dress (Example)

  • Bridesmaid dresses

  • Invitations

  • Rings (All 3)

  • Ring Box (Example) (Another Example!)

  • Any jewelry 

  • Any card/gift you'll be exchanging with your fiancé

  • Your bouquet

 
 

Time

Bride prep is such an important part of the day and can sometimes be neglected and undervalued. This is the most relaxed time of the day: you're spending time with your girls, getting pampered, and getting ready to say I do! It’s a great time for your photographer or videographer to warm up and build a rapport with you, your bridesmaids, and your family! But beyond that, shooting details takes time! We ask that you give our team at least an hour (but we recommend more) to style invitations, rings, florals and shoes, and also find the best place to hang your dress!

If we are shooting video and you're planning on exchanging cards on the morning of, please allow your videographer an extra 15 minutes to capture good visuals and audio!

We hope that this is helpful for you as you continue your wedding planning! As always, feel free to reach out to us with any questions you may have!

 
 

Chuck + Lindsay

We had the whole team on for this one shooting photo and video. We started at The Hampton Inn in Providence,  RI, venturing over to Waterplace Park for the first look, formals at Rhode Island's State House and partying at The Dorrance in Downtown Providence. Here are some of our favorites along with a highlight video we shot.

What Kind of Photographer Should You Hire For Your Wedding?

Getting married is the biggest and most important day of people’s lives. They want it to be perfect, they want it to be remembered, and they want it to be captured. Capturing a couple’s big day is your photographer/videographer’s job, no pressure, right? This can be both a very exciting time and a very stressful time for people and your job as a photographer is not just to take photos it should be much more.

 

There are good photographers and then there are great photographers, but what makes them different from each other? There are many good photographers out there that take amazing photos and are very good at what they do, but how are they with interacting with their clients and ensuring that they are having the best time ever? I once heard someone say that when you are looking to hire any vendor for your wedding day you need to make sure you hire someone who will be a stress reliever not a stress inducer. There will be enough chaos and things going on during that day, but if your photographer has learned how to work with their clients and go above and beyond to help make them feel comfortable and stress free then they are a great photographer.

 

That is one very important thing that separates Move Mountains Co. from other wedding and event photography companies. We strive to make your special day as memorable as possible and as stress-free as possible. The day is all about you and what you want, it’s that simple. We are here to capture those once in a lifetime moments so they can be remembered forever. We strive for excellence in our work and absolutely love what we do. If you or someone you know is in the process of planning a wedding then Contact Us, we would love to help make your day one that you will never forget.
