It's The Little Things: Capturing The Wedding Details

It's The Little Things: Capturing The Wedding Details

You have spent hours, maybe even days, weeks or months planning and selecting bridal gifts, wedding cake flowers, bouquets, plates and centerpieces for your wedding reception tables, wedding favors, fonts for wedding invitations, and the list just keeps going.  Once you walk away as Mr. and Mrs. we at Fusion don't want to leave you with just the beautiful memories.  We want each minute detail that you so painstakingly selected to be documented so that you can retain those memories as if they were as fresh as the day you were married.  We want those memories to be transformed into timeless art that can be displayed on your wall for years to come.

Look at those wedding day heels!  Many times, like in DaLice's case, Deevo has the pleasure of documenting a statement piece.  This was a deliberate choice by the bride, a way to make an incredibly bold and beautiful statement in incredibly small package. With a little manipulation of the light (ok, maybe it's not quite that simple), these heels become a vivid piece of art.  A selection as bold and vibrant as these heels can't be passed up; the significance of the choice radiates from these photographs.

Capturing the bride and groom's wedding rings is essential. Not only did you spend months selecting these rings, and not to mention your hard earned money was used to purchase them, but you will be wearing them for the rest of your lives.  They are such small objects that hold great significance and symbolism for your marriage.  What I absolutely love about Deevo's detail images of wedding rings is that he allows the personality of the wedding and the decor of the reception to be his guide.  While the rings become the centerpiece of these specific images, you will always find other wedding details in play as well, helping ensure these images perfectly fit with your individuality and style. What does this mean?  I can guarantee you will LOVE your wedding ring detail shots because they are ultimately a reflection of your style and personality in art.

This is easily one of my favorite ways I have ever seen a bride use her "something old."  This beautiful heirloom brooch was incorporated into her wedding bouquet and displayed so eloquently and prominently. Capturing a detail such as this is an absolute must, and I would say Deevo nailed it with these images.  In this case it was impossible for us to miss this tiny, but powerful detail.  If you incorporate a detail of great significance such as this into your wedding day make sure to inform your photographer.  It is an wedding detail that no one will want to see overlooked.

Wedding receptions are another aspect of the big day that we love to document.  We realize that every single detail of your reception was purposefully picked and displayed in particular ways, and is such a true representation of your own specific style.  Not to mention they are just fun to capture.  You are going to want to remember every little detail of this fleeting day, and sadly the area you worked the hardest on is likely to be the one you least recall.  Why?  Because you are newlyweds and you are lost in the moment just like you should be!  Deevo is there to ensure that you don't miss a thing, not even the way your place settings looked with the first course served, just waiting on the guests.  And look at that bokeh (the incredible glimmering light in the background) that was created by your very own reception candles.

Wedding cakes are absolutely, 100% always represented in our detail shots.  I think this cake by Gail Cirillo-Buff at Cheesecake Etc. speaks volumes as to why this is the case.  Wedding cakes are beautifully handcrafted, but temporary pieces of art that must be captured before they are cut into and served to the guests.  Add in a little Deevo and his dramatic lighting and instantly the minute details, like Gail's handcrafted petals, glisten in each photograph.

And of course we are going to capture your the wedding bouquets.  In so many weddings they offer that bold pop of color as does the bridal party's bouquets above.  When it comes to the bride's bouquet, it is the like the icing on the cake.  The hand selected and handcrafted bouquet brings an element of nature to your ensemble and photographs so beautifully.  Wedding bouquets are another very deliberate and thought over choice of the wedding and deserve recognition in your wedding portfolio.  


Every fined tuned detail of your wedding day should be carefully captured so that you are not left with fading memories, but instead have beautiful works of art to prominently display in your home. You will find that we don't just photograph the tangible wedding details, but we also catch those sweet, little moments that transpire between bride and groom.  We want to ensure that you end your experience holding a wedding album that accurately and artistically reflects your wedding day as you so carefully planned and remember it.

There are so many great wedding detail shots in Fusion's vault that I can't just stop here.  I have to throw in a few more peaks.
