Looking for a wedding photographer? Check out JXC Photo

Each year, we continue to work with more and more grooms. And so recently, I decided that we really need to step up our content that’s geared towards the groom. Specifically, we realize that when it comes to wedding photographers, there are certainly many to choose from. Therefore, we are constantly looking for the area’s best wedding photographers. The ones that meet the same level of quality that you expect from BE. Today, I interviewed Josh and Christie Hall (pictured above), the husband and wife team behind¬†JXC Photo.

I asked them three questions that I feel are very important when it comes to shopping around for a Denver wedding photographer…

1. [Ryan] How would you describe your particular approach to wedding photography? What makes you different?

[Josh and Christie] My wife and I like to take each moment as it comes on a wedding day. Of course we do a fair amount of planning on our end, but while we’re shooting, we like to keep an open mind. We’ve been photographing weddings for almost five years now, and between Denver and New Orleans, we’ve been in a lot of different rooms and had to deal with many different circumstances (we’re great at pinning boutonnieres at this point). All of that experience gives us a calm disposition on a wedding day, we’re very comfortable with our off-camera lighting and equipment, and that allows us to be both creative and efficient.

2. What sorts of things can the groom do to look his best in the wedding photos? In other words, are there common mistakes that grooms make?

There’s a fine line between looking comfortable and natural in a photograph, and looking nervous and unsure. Believe it or not, all you have to do is put one hand in your pocket and pick a leg to lean most of your weight on, and you’ll look like you belong everywhere. It’s a magic trick. Oh, and don’t put the boutonniere on too early — if you take your jacket off and fold it over a chair, your flower (and maybe your bride) will be upset.

3. When searching for a wedding photographer, what are the important qualities that a couple should be looking for?

We get this question pretty often. With all the style and price differences between photographers, plus a client base that generally only needs a wedding photographer once in their lives, it’s easy to get lost in the confusion of how to pick one. Our answer is always this: Look for photographers who specialize in weddings and who have lots of experience in that department. There are lots of unexpected moments in wedding photography, and the best photographers will know how to not only capture those moments in the best possible way, but capture them in lighting situations that aren’t always favorable. We do a lot of “thinking on a dime” in our jobs, so it’s important to have specific practice in that department.
