In our effort to give advice on unique wedding and reception-related subjects, we thought it might be helpful to both the wedding couple and their photographer to give some advice for cutting and feeding each other cake. The cake cutting (or pie cutting, or cupcake sharing, etc.) is a standard at any wedding reception. It is often a moment of uncertainty and intimidation for the couple getting married: where should the cake be placed? When/how do we cut it? (Stay tuned for a post on how to cut a wedding cake coming up soon!) Should we feed each other nicely or do an in-your-face-down-your-dress-and-up-your-nose smash? While we can't help you answer that particular question, we can give you 6 friendly tips on what to take into consideration for your cake cutting!

How's THIS for an Inspiration Image!?This photograph that Molly took of a bridal party at Eden Park is a true original, and one of the most popular photographs that clients mention when they have their first meeting with us. However, trying to duplicate this image is next to impossible, because no one can control clouds.   Exuberant HappinessThis bride and groom had their guests blow bubbles as they walked up the aisle after their wedding ceremony.   Stunning BouquetMolly created a unique perspective when taking a photograph of this bouquet of peonies. She also prefers to have the human element in your details, like the bride in the background (like this image), your rings on your fingers, and your foot in your shoe.

These are a few of our thoughts on Pinterest and other wedding planning websites like (Perfect Wedding Guide, The Knot, WeddingWire, etc.) and what we would want clients to know when using these wonderful planning tools. There are pros and cons to each of these websites, and I know several vendors and venues have their own Pinterest pages to show you how previous weddings have looked. However, when you approach some wedding vendors, especially photographers, there is some negative aspects that come into consideration. Strictly speaking from our perspective as your wedding photographer, here we review 5 things we want you, our client, to keep in mind.
