I'm a photographer and artist with over 10 years experience in the industry. Some of my favorite things (and what I'm best known for) are:
I look forward to working with you!
Here are what some of my past clients have to say:
"Sherry is sooo laid back which is the type of photographer I was looking for.. I knew she would be great for our wedding day. She plans out a list ahead of time of "must have" shots so she can also have time to plan for her own candid creative shots. Best of all, she gives you the photos on CD so that you have the rights to your own photos! I would recommend Sherry to anyone looking for a fantastic, affordable, laid back, photographer for their own wedding." - Donna
"I cannot say enough amazing things about Sherry Lynne. When my husband and I met with her initially, we had a code word, we were going to use if we liked her, and we wanted to give her the deposit check we had in our wallet. Half way through the consultation I said the phrase. She is so down to earth and made me feel so comfortable. I wanted a photographer that would not be in my face or in my families face all day. I wanted candid shots, detail shots and beautiful portraits of my husband and I. And believe me I got all three and so much more. She has an incredible talent." - Samantha
"Sherry did our photography for our wedding last June. We loved working with her, she is really easy to get along with and is very friendly but wasn't "all up in your face", for lack of a better phrase, during the wedding. Her pictures are beautiful, she takes great detail shots of everything and caught some really wonderful moments between our guests that I might not have seen without the pictures. I loved working with her and would definitely hire her again if I had another event or just wanted photos done, she's fantastic!" - Kelly
The Wedding Day
A little information about how I like to plan work on the Wedding Day:
Getting Ready -
Generally I like to get to the location where the bride is getting ready about an hour/hour and a half before she begins getting into her dress. That way I have plenty of time to get detail shots of the dress, shoes, jewelry, flowers, or anything else that is special to her day. Within that time I also have time to shoot candids of the rest of the family/wedding party getting ready. I’ll then take time to get some shots of the bride getting into her dress (or enter the room after she has mostly gotten into her dress). That is also a great time to also get some candids and artistic photographs of the bride touching up her makeup, finalizing any details, or having a toast with the girls.
The Ceremony -
If the ceremony is at a different location than where the bride is getting ready, I try to leave a bit before the bride so I have time to be ready when she arrives at the ceremony site. I’m able to get detail shots of the church, guests arriving, and anything else that may be important prior to the ceremony beginning. During the ceremony I try to stay as far back as possible so as not to cause distraction.
The Formals -
Many times formals are done after the ceremony (although some couples choose to do a “first look” and get the formals out of the way before the ceremony). My brides fill out a questionnaire prior to the wedding and we touch base over the phone the week of the wedding so we know exactly what we’ll be doing for family photographs. This way we can breeze through this part of the day and everyone can move on to the cocktail hour and reception as soon as possible.
Bride/Groom shots -
Depending on how much time is allotted for bride/groom portraits, we can have fun and really get some fantastic artistic images. Generally I guide the couple around to different areas with the best light and capture a bunch of images of them together (looking at me, looking at each other, stylized portraits, etc.) Again, how much time was allotted ahead of time will vary. If more artistic portraits are something that are important to the Bride and Groom, then a little bit more time may be needed to really get a vast array of images.
The Reception -
After the Bride/Groom shots are finished, they usually have time to join the cocktail hour and I head inside to shoot a bunch of detail shots of the venue, centerpieces, favors, cake, etc. before the introductions begin. This is a great time to capture candids of the guests as well.
During dinner is usually a bit of downtime for photography as the guests enjoy their meal and then the fun begins. This is usually the time to capture first dances, parent dances, cake cutting, and candids of the guests dancing and interacting. Generally, a short while before the reception ends I try to check in with the bride to make sure that there is nothing else she may want captured before leaving.
