About Doug Hanson Photography

I’ll be honest, wedding photography wasn’t my first choice within the various photographic fields. It wasn’t my last either, but wasn’t something I thought I’d ever do. When I started seriously taking pictures in 2007, I loved documentary and commercial/fashion photography. That’s what I wanted to do. Not long ago, however, I realized that wedding photography could combine both of these passions. So now, I’ve embraced this path and am loving every minute of it.

There are a lot of really talented photographers out there. I’m very humbled and thankful that you’re here either thinking about hiring me, or looking at some of the finished pictures you gave me the opportunity to take on one of the most important days of your life.

Natalie & Mitch

Natalie & Mitch’s wedding will be one I’ll never forget… for a number of reasons. At the time when Natalie approached me, I was engaged to her sister (we’re now married). I hadn’t ever shot a wedding before and quite honestly wasn’t that interested in becoming a wedding photographer. But in spite of this, and after some flattery, I agreed and almost immediately started freaking out. I mean, it’s a wedding. It’s not like the commercial jobs I had done or my personal work where I could just re-pose the model. If I mess up, there’s no going back. Ok. Deep breath. I can do this. I just need to

do my homework.

One thing became very clear to me during my homework phase. Weddings are a lot of pressure, but preparation and a plan will definitely help make things easier. More research… group posing (something I dread and despise, but figured I’d have to do it because, hey, this is wedding photography afterall). The first thing I read about posing a group was about group size. These words quickly became burned into my

memory… Eight people in the bridal party is a good number. 10 is manageable, but beyond that, group shots become much more difficult. “Ok. Therese (my wife), how many people are in your sister’s wedding party?” I asked. “I think there’s eighteen. Eight on each side, plus Natalie and Mitch.”

So there it was. My first wedding. Family pressure (don’t let anyone tell you it’s less pressure shooting for family). 18 person bridal party. This, my friends, is a recipe for a stroke.

But here I am. I survived. And I didn’t ruin Natalie & Mitch’s wedding. It was an amazing experience. Very stressful, but so very rewarding. Looking through the photos after the wedding I began to realize the importance of a wedding photographer. These moments truly are priceless. It’s the type of journalistic photography that’s filled with raw emotion. It’s a documentary of one of the most important days in a person’s life. And for me, it was a beginning. So thank you so much Natalie &

Mitch. Thank you for having the confidence in me to shoot your wedding. Thanks for being such great sports. And thank you for giving me the opportunity to realize that I actually really enjoy wedding photography.

My day started early, following Natalie and her bridesmaids to their hair & make-up appointments.

Great friends. A lot of laughs. Champagne and orange juice.

One of Natalie’s bridesmaids had a birthday the same day and Natalie insisted we stop and celebrate her friend. I can’t say that I blame them – this cake looked delicious!

Nearly the entire wedding party and guest list were staying at the same waterfront cottages. And while there were some close calls, Mitch didn’t get to see his beautiful bride until she walked down the aisle.

After the ceremony, Natalie & Mitch led their wedding party down the streets of Saint Andrews. One of our

first stops was this ice cream shop. Natalie’s expression as she orders is priceless.

After everyone had their fill of ice cream, we headed to the pier. See, I told you there were 18 people in this wedding party! Natalie didn’t want any traditional posed pictures so I just asked them for their best fierce model pose and captured this fantastic shot.

Mitch sort of broke away from the group for a brief second. It looked like he was just taking a second to take in the moment…

So many laughs and a few tears from the heartfelt speeches. Poor tadalafil vardenafil et sildenafil Mitch was the focus of many of them. But he took it well.

Livin’ it up. Mother of the groom. Father of the bride. So much fun.

Congratulations Natalie & Mitch. What a beautiful day and an amazing couple. I’m so thankful that you allowed me to document your day. My first and certainly the one I’ll remember the most. Best – doug
