Stay Calm on Your Wedding Day – Scranton Wedding Photographers
February 11th

It’s Wedding Wednesday! The procrastinator in chief of Scranton Wedding Photographers is going to have a great little blog post for all of you brides every Wednesday – all geared towards helping you take control of your wedding day – tell your engaged friends to tune in!

So your big day is coming up and you already are beginning to feel the stirring of pre-wedding jitters. Whether they are brought on because everyone keeps asking you about how excited you are for the big day, or you are someone who just isn’t used to “all eyes on you”, we have some helpful tips and tricks to stay calm and relaxed on your wedding day.

Eat Breakfast!

Our parents always told us it was the most important meal of the day, and on your wedding day it’s no different. Due to nervousness you may not feel like eating, but if you force yourself to have a little bit, you’ll be thanking yourself later. Even try having a fruit smoothie instead of your coffee so your body can have the nutrients it needs to keep you going until the reception dinner.

Make a Schedule

Making a schedule (even if you don’t adhere to it by the minute) will give you something to focus your attention on. Don’t hold yourself to it every second of the day though, because if you do, you’ll be stressing more about the schedule than enjoying your big day.

Have an Emergency Kit

You never know when you might need a Tide to Go pen to get an accidental stain out of your wedding dress, or when a safety pin might come in handy. Make a small emergency kit that you can fit in a small purse in case you need anything during your day. Items may include a bleach pen, needle and thread, safety pins, Tylenol, mints, superglue and more.

Expect the Unexpected

It may be inclement weather or someone getting sick on the day of your wedding, but never let the unexpected get to you or ruin your day. Keeping an upbeat and positive attitude even if it’s pouring outside will ensure that you still have an enjoyable time regardless of what happens. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

Wilkes-Barre Wedding Photography | Henries
May 22nd

Good morning!

I have been asked by several folks what some of my favorite images are that I’ve taken recently. I thought about it and decided to feature an image a week.

Todays first image comes form the wedding of Charles and Maria.

I had one of the best times ever at their wedding. They were so full of life and love for each other that they infected me and everyone else!

Here’s the lovely bride as she was escorted down the aisle by her father. A beautiful and bittersweet moment. I am always amazed at weddings that the guests are like paparazzi, darted out in out to get a photo, and I wanted to capture what it was like for them to be going down that aisle.

Hope you like it.

Wilkes-Barre Wedding Photography
December 23rd

Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer Steve Lewis offers Wilkes-Barre brides the very best in Wilkes-Barre wedding photography.

Are you getting married in or nearby Wilkes-Barre? Who will be your Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer?

Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for a Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer.

//1 personality

When selecting a Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all day on your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.

Your Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session and post wedding photography and albums.

//2 price

While price is always a factor when selecting your Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It turns out to be foolish in the end. When its all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.

//3 wedding albums

What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your Wilkes-Barre wedding.

When selecting a Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer 1) How many pages come in the wedding album? 2) How many images will be in the wedding album? 3) What leather options are available for my wedding album?

//4 coverage

Something often overlooked when selecting a Wilkes-Barre wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your Wilkes-Barre wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours.

Be careful here. Some Wilkes-Barre wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.

//5 number of wedding photographers

How many Wilkes-Barre wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to have coverage going on at the same time.

We find that by having two Wilkes-Barre wedding photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.

Scranton/Wilkes-Barre Photographer
September 26th

Scranton/WIlkes-Barre Children's Photographer

Hello people. Isn’t this a handsome fellow up there ^? Just foolin’ around with a camera and my son the other day. And since a blog post is always better with a picture, I thought I’d put him up for you.

I thought I’d write a little bit about myself and my business today.

Steve Lewis Photography is the culmination of one man’s journey of self discovery. Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Me, I wanted to be a garbage-man, an archaeologist, (damn you Indiana Jones!) an actor, and a cowboy. But as I got older I realized smelly garbage makes me gag, boulders weren’t going to chase me out of Incan temples, I was a mediocre actor in a sea of good ones, and cowboys either get shot by bad guys or trampled by cattle. Since none of those things were going to work out for me, I decided one day not too long ago that photography seemed pretty cool. And then I studied. And I practiced. And practiced. And practiced. And practiced some more.

Then once I figured out what my destiny was, I decided to open for business in January of 2012. Today I specialize in fine art wedding and portrait photography. When I’m in wedding photography mode I’m telling love stories. From the first shot of the engagement session to the final shot at the reception I’m telling the story of YOUR love for each other.

When I’m in portrait photography mode, I’m attempting to capture a slice of your life in un-staged, natural settings as the events are occurring. Portrait photography should be about capturing the relationships and the personalities of my clients as I see it. As a photographer I am a casual observer of life, documenting little snippets of people’s lives. We need to have more than good lighting and smooth skin to make a good portrait. We need to capture YOU. Or your baby. Or your family. You get the idea.

When I’m not with my clients, you will find me running around after my three awesome children, keeping myself caffeinated, and generally loving life!

I like coffee, buttercream icing, sushi, and coffee.

I dislike smelly feet, math, scales, and Ewoks.
