Alexis Bryan Morgan, Executive Fashion Director

"I think people often don’t take time to find a great wedding photographer and give them the required direction. I attended a wedding recently and the bride was crushed when she got the photos because the photographer took  only took pictures of the wedding party or “atmosphere” photos (i.e. bouquets of flowers). The bride should take some time before the wedding to give direction to the photographer and identify people in the family and close friends who they would like to be photographed, and other general direction—like to photograph people dancing or arriving. OK, I obsess over making beautiful photographs for a living—but I think the wedding album is almost as important as the event itself! You want it to be perfect for your grandchildren."
