"WHY I LOVE PHOTOGRAPHING WEDDINGS?!""

The truth is that I love all types of photography, but weddings have my heart. Why weddings ? It's a good question, and one that I used to often stumble over as I would casually mention the love of the married couple, how fun they are and how happy the guests are ! The love and emotion you are declaring promises to each other in front of family and closest friends. The beauty, the makeup, the hair, the dress and the bouquets. Prettiness is in abundance!   Weddings are my favorite thing in the world to photograph, but here is a more considered response...   CHALLENGES :     The CHALLENGES of dealing with whatever the day throws at me. The changes in weather, photographing in a location I may not have seen before and having to think on my feet is what I THRIVE on. You have to be fast, and you have to think fast.    LIGHT :     Light is constantly changing throughout the day. In any one moment an event can occur in your peripheral vision, one must stay sharp and know the camera inside out to compensate for changes in exposure. I relish the challenge that comes with being quick on my feet being able to work at pace. Dark churches, people standing in your way, even walking from shade to sunlight can produce huge jumps in exposure.     THE UNEXPECTED:   This is one of the primary reasons why I love shooting weddings, people go through a variety of emotions on the day. Laughter, tears, and pure joy, all within the space of ten hours. It is truly magical. Because of this you have to be mindful of everything going on around you, not just the key moments of ring exchanges or first kiss. Guest may be crying, flower girls may be yawning, anything could happen and that's why they're so exciting.    THE CREATIVITY:   Each wedding is a brand new challenge and guarantees to keep you creatively engaged. Even if you shoot the same venue three weddings in a row, the light will change, the weather will change, and the people will change. Each of these factors will dramatically alter the final story. No two weddings are the same, so they should never be approached in the same way either.  MY CLIENTS:    The single most rewarding thing about photographing a wedding is when a client tells me they can relive the day through the images. If my photographs re-enforce what they felt and mirror everything they experienced on the day, then I know I have done my job.     Yolanda Hill

Mr & Mrs Galera

I got to know Stephen and Yanesy during their engagement session at Vizcaya Museum and Gardens in Miami, FL. Their engagement session was the perfect blend of good old fun and a genuinely happy couple. In the beginning Stephen was shy but by the end of the day I could tell he was feeling more comfortable with me. Their wedding took place at the elegant Benvenuto in Boynton Beach, FL. I absolutely loved spending the day with Stephen and Yanesy's family as they were so welcoming like a typical Cuban family!

Mr & Mrs Rama

We had a brief meeting before Mike and Brandi's wedding and she trusted me entirely to do a wonderful job on her wedding day. Their wedding took place in January of 2016 at the Marriott Harbor Beach in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. From the moment I walked in the room I could tell it was going to be a magnificent wedding. Her dress was one of the most stunning dresses I've seen, she looked gorgeous. Thank you so much for choosing Yolanda Hill Photography to be with you on your special day.

Kelsey and Casey; that's a tongue twister!  This couple was so much fun!  In the hours leading up to the ceremony, we thought the rain might put a damper on this celebration but the clouds parted ways and the sun shone down!  This bridal party was ready to get down!  The groom's side was almost fully-loaded with firefighters and the bride's side was chock-full of outgoing ladies!  After the ceremony ended, we had a blast photographing this group atop one of Martin County's fire engines and using all of its tools as props.  The reception was nothing shy of a blast.  Kelsey and Casey enjoyed every minute of it and so did their guests.  The rain never interrupted a single moment of this celebration and boy are we glad it didn't!  Congrats, guys and thank you for choosing Yolanda Hill Photography.   Best wishes for many years of wedded bliss!
