Modele Weddings Special: Featured on Kiss the Groom!

We are so excited to share that modèleweddings was shown by Elizabeth Messina on Kiss the Groom, this morning! We’re not only excited for the mention, but also for her gorgeous covershot & fashion spread photoshoot in the inaugural issues of modèleweddings magazine.

We asked Elizabeth to share a bit with our readers on what defines great wedding photography, & we LOVE what she had to say:

“it is all in the details….there is so much

beauty at a wedding….i always try to slow

down & capture all of the details as well

as the more obvious images of the ceremony

& portraits etc……the images of a cake or a pair

of shoes help tell the love story of a couple….”

We couldn’t agree more! Details are important…especially when it comes to your wedding day style:
