Though I sometimes photograph the rings during the pre-ceremony time, either at the hotel or the venue, I usually do this during the reception.
The groom for this wedding at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel wrote a nice review for me afterward:
Working with Michael Caswell was absolutely a pleasure. Everything from our first look to family photos to dancing action shots during our second line was so perfect. He was very nice and easy while trying to wrangle everyone to get into position. During the wedding we barely noticed him taking our pictures but when we saw the photos we were so surprised how great they were. Some people even commented that they looked like they should be on the cover of a New Orleans magazine. He is really a great photographer and made everything simple after the wedding when looking at the photos and storing them for safe keeping. I’m glad we hired him and would tell anyone to do the same. He is a true professional.
