We are literally with you from the early morning of your wedding day to the late evening hours of your reception shindig. Only Brito's Photography isn't all in your face paparazzo style the whole time. For most of your day, you'll hardly even know we're there snapping away. That means a weight off your shoulders and lots of time to spend focusing on making sure your big day goes smoothly.
Getting Ready We start the day by photographing you getting ready. Don't worry. This is all very much G-rated and we'll make sure to capture your pretty face only after you're all done up. Think detail shots of your fragrance du jour, you slipping into your beautiful shoes, a crowd of happy bridesmaids in their slouchy sweatpants and impeccable hair. The same is true for the men, too. We'll capture them fastening boutonnieres to their lapels, candids of dad giving the groom some sage advice and groomsmen laughing it up while the women get ready.
Portraits When you book with Brito's Photography, you'll also get formal and informal portrait shots. That includes those gorgeous bridal portraits, handsome pics of the groom (perfect for propping up on your work desk), group shots of the entire bridal party and all the family portrait shots you could ever want. We like to do a mix of both casual and traditional for these shots.
Ceremony and Reception Of course, we also document your entire wedding ceremony and reception, complete with all those big -- and small -- moments that must be caught on film. That includes walking down the aisle, the big kiss, the officiant speaking, musicians playing, and family and friends listening/watching. We'll also capture all those fun and heartfelt moments at your reception, from tearful and hilarious toasts to some mad dancing skills to cake cutting and beyond.
Details Rest assured we'll capture all those details you planned, as well. You spent good money -- and time -- planning your special day; we're here to make sure it's documented beautifully. We'll photograph the tiniest details on your wedding favors, the sugary flower ornaments on your cake, the lanterns hanging in the trees and anything else you thoughtfully included.
Extras Depending on the package you choose, we'll also be there for other moments leading up to your wedding day, including the rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, bachelorette and bachelor parties and even your wedding or bridal shower. Check out our package page in this magazine for more information.
SHOW US THE LOVE!
THE ENGAGEMENT SESSION
First and foremost, you should have an engagement session done because it's fun. You get to pamper yourself and dress up and -- here's the best part -- snuggle and kiss your best friend for a good hour or two.
Engagement sessions also serve as prime bonding time for you two. In fact, many of the couples I photograph tell me that their engagement shoot brought them closer together, something they didn't think possible considering how much they were in love already. How's that for amazing?
Think about it, though. When you're doing intimate things such as just looking into each other's eyes, holding your partner's hand or resting on his shoulder in very romantic settings, it's impossible not to fall more in love. Truth: In our fast-paced world, sometimes we forget to enjoy the silence and the moment and just be together.
There are also practical reasons for an engagement session, too. For example, many people use shots from their engagement shoot for save the dates, wedding invitations and even thank you cards post-wedding. (Psst. We can totally hook you up with those extras.)
Your engagement photographs are also great to use on your engagement website, for announcing your engagement online and for simply documenting yourself as a young and in-love couple. I promise you, your grandkids will get a kick out of these pictures in, say, 40 years!
About our glamour portraits
Hi, and welcome to Brito’s Photography!, your premiere glamour portrait studio based in Springfield Mass. We specialize exclusively in photographs that put you in the best light (pun intended) and make you feel -- and look -- like not just a million bucks, but a billion bucks. Maybe even a trillion bucks? Yeah, we're going there.
Before you get any strange ideas… no, these aren't the over-the-top glamour shots featuring giant feathery hair and soft filter effects a la your 1980s mall. These are professional, stunning, thoughtfully crafted images that simply capture your true beauty and essence.
Some wonder what the point of glamour photography is, and to that, we have a few answers. On a strictly utilitarian basis, glamour photography is ideal for any man or woman who needs flattering head shots, be they for auditions, business cards, a website, marketing, or even social media. Glamour portraits can also be taken just for fun (or for a special someone). I mean, who doesn't love to get pampered, primped and posed in front of the camera?
From head to toe, we work with you to ensure your personality and beauty are brought to the forefront. Your glamour portraits include a full makeup application with a professional makeup artist.
What to Wear
Choosing what you wear to your senior photo shoot is kind of a big deal. After all, anyone who cares about fashion will tell you that what you wear is an expression of who you are. It's obviously not the only thing that defines you, but the duds you don certainly make a first -- and lasting -- impression.
When selecting your session day outfits, think about what your style sense is and what you envision for the shoot. I highly recommend flipping through fashion magazines, perusing Pinterest and checking out in-the-know blogs for inspiration. And don't forget: from head to toe, details matter! Thoughtfully select the perfect shoes, accessories, jewelry and even layering details when putting together your outfits.
Once you have your ensembles selected, take some quick snapshots of yourself and ask others for their thoughts and opinions. From there, you can make any adjustments or narrow down your selections.
Oh, and as your photographer, I want to see pictures of your outfits, too! Not just because I'm dying to see your fabulous fashion sense ASAP, but because knowing what you'll wear helps me choose session locations. This is all about you, sweetheart, and we're going to make you look -- and feel -- like a bajillion bucks!
P. S. I do suggest bringing a few backup garments and accessories to the actual photo session. Just in case!
