Generations Photography co-owner talks capturing moments on the big day

So many details go into a wedding day; so many little moments are easily forgotten in later years.

Wedding photographer Lee Ann Freeman helps couples retain those amazing memories.

“My style is to be very laid back and capture all the emotions of the day, not just the formal shots at the altar,” she said. “Couples really appreciate all the behind-the-scenes photos.”

Freeman and her mother, Paula Johnston, are co-owners of Generations Photography and Gifts in Beaver. They’ll be at The Times Bridal Fair on Jan. 31, with samples of wedding photos and wedding-themed gifts.

Freeman’s wedding packages run between $1,500 and $3,000, with a build-your-own-package option. Her sessions include two hours of pre-ceremony coverage, the wedding, photos in an alternate location (such as a local park) and key events at the reception.

In planning a wedding budget, she suggests looking at the lasting value of photos.

“It’s literally the only thing you’ll have after the wedding,” she said. “The one thing I tell people over and over is to make sure you hire a professional. You can’t get the day back.”

In the iPhone and selfie era, is hiring a pro a hard sell?

“Actually, no,” said Freeman. “Yes, everything today is captured and shared on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, but I think people are actually more invested in pictures; they see the value of good photos.”

One bonus that couples don’t always think about is that a wedding is often like a mini family reunion.

“I always recommend a large family shot at the reception,” said Freeman. “I’ve had over 100 people gathered on the dance floor for a family photo.”

Freeman also recommends an engagement photo shoot. Not only do clients end up with some great pictures, but she spends time getting acquainted and developing a rapport with them.

“The best wedding photos happen when you are truly being yourself,” she said. “When I sit down for a consultation, I talk to the couple and get to know them. An engagement shoot is a good time to see how they react to the camera and for them to get comfortable with me.”

Booking as early as possible is always a good idea.

“Right now I’m well into 2017,” she said. “I recommend at least a year in advance; 18 months is even better.”

Freeman and Johnston will also have a selection of bridal party gifts on display at the bridal fair.

“We’ll have lots of options for affordable jewelry and bridesmaid gifts at the show,” said Freeman. “We’re now carrying Ginger Snaps Jewelry, which is hugely popular for bridesmaids; it has interchangeable snaps, so you can quickly change the look.”
