Candid Wedding Photography :: SMILE

Why a smile is your best accessory for fun and candid wedding photos

While there are many ingredients needed to make the perfect photo, we believe a smile ranks among the most important. A smile is the Only Accessory you need for beautiful, fun and candid wedding photography.  We all have heard the saying that a smile is your best accessory. At  Off BEET productions whole heartedly  believe this.

The Key to Fun & Candid Wedding Photography

Almost every couple ask us for advice on how to ensure they have great wedding photos and video.  Even though we have been asked this hundreds of times, our answer never changes.  Have Fun, don’t sweat the small stuff, and SMILE.

Great wedding photography is not about the props or the lighting. It is not about the weather or the location. They are, in our opinion, about the moments.

We believe great wedding photography captures the essence of the day and tells your story. And every story is different.

We are based in New Jersey and predominately photograph wedding in the NJ,NY Tri-State. If you live here you know  the weather can be unpredictable.

Therefore, please  don’t stress if it’s raining or overcast. Try not to be annoyed if its to hot or to cold. Embrace and enjoy each and every situation given to you. Because, after all, you only get one wedding day. Smile, laugh, and have fun and we promise to create amazing fun and candid wedding photos.

In conclusion, we hope that you smile and have fun on your big day. If you do that we can ensure you will have fun and candid wedding photography to cherish for a lifetime. Everything is better with a smile. Because I believe that, I even have it tattooed on my arm. 🙂
