What are the benefits to hiring Tim Ray Photography to photograph your fairy tale wedding?

1.  He Is A Seasoned Professional.

Tim Ray has been in the wedding photography business for 28 years.  His studio is located n Fairmont, West Virginia.  He has photographed over 1000 weddings in West Virginia and the surrounding states not missing a single one for any reason.  He first began working as a film photographer prior to going digital.  Through film photography, he learned to see what the camera sees, how to use available light, and how to photograph in many challenging lighting.

2.  Every Wedding Is Unique.

Tim’s approach to wedding photography is unique.  His attention to details, and to expressions enables him to capture each wedding in a way that brings out each couple’s uniqueness.  He does not believe in “cookie cutter” weddings where each wedding looks exactly alike.  If a wedding couple has a sense of humor, he tries to capture the humor of the day.  If the couple is more romantic, he captures the romance.  Every wedding is unique because every couple is unique.   

3.  Tim Tells The Story.

Tim Ray captures each wedding day in such a way that the couple can relive their day as they view their pictures.  From the beautiful details of the bride’s shoes, dress, jewelry and flowers as she is getting ready, to the groom putting on his tie and laughing with his groom’s men, Tim is there to capture the moments.  To the father viewing his daughter for the first time in her wedding dress, to giving her away to her husband, Tim wants to tell the story through portraits.  Tim Ray photographs weddings in such as a way that the couple can relive their wedding day.

4.  Tim captures amazing expressions.

Posing and capturing expressions is sometimes the most difficult part of wedding photography.  Oftentimes the groom might be nervous, or the bride may never have had a professional photographer take her picture before.  Sometimes not knowing where to look, or what expression to have is daunting.  Through many years of experience, Tim has learned to capture beautiful expressions on the most romantic day a bride and groom will enjoy – their wedding day.  If you are annoyed by an unprofessional photographer dropping his equipment who does not know how to pose the bride and groom and has not brought proper back up equipment, that expression of annoyance will show in your portraits.

5.  Tim Ray Is an Artist.

Fine art photography is created as carefully as paintings.  Art is art because when you view it, you feel something.  Fine art photography takes experience, planning, and know how in order to capture the emotions of a couple expressing their love for one another in a wedding, the emotions of parents seeing their children making a commitment in marriage, and all the friends and family who are there to celebrate.  These emotions are what Tim captures at weddings and is what makes his photography so amazing.

6.  Tim Ray Is Excellent At What He Does.

With his years as a film photographer, Tim has learned to see as the camera sees.  In the world of point and click photographers who have just purchased a nice camera, and recently started a facebook wedding photography page, Tim has learned his art in an era when the artist had to set the camera using a light meter manually.  He became a photographer in an era when there was no instant feedback on the view screen in the back of the camera.  Every shot had to be perfect.  Through this experience, he learned how to photograph in many different situations, how to effectively use available light, and how to photograph without using flash. Most importantly, how to capture the most artistic image in all sorts of lighting situations from high faulted church ceilings, to splotchy outdoor lighting for outdoor weddings, to every possibly live event scenario.
