Photographers Showcase Amphitheater Feature at Wayfarers Chapel

There is more to the stunning architecture and expansive panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean afforded from the Wayfarers Chapel that make it one of the most coveted places to have a wedding Ceremony in Los Angeles County and really in all of Southern California.  The photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography have been doing wedding photography at the chapel for over fifteen years and know all the hidden gems to use a backgrounds for wedding photography portraits.

One of the often overlooked locations to use as background for wedding photography at Wayfarers Chapel that the photographers at Caught in the Moment Photography like to use is the amphitheater located at the end of the veranda behind the chapel itself.  This green space on the grounds is meticulously groomed by the gardening staff at Wayfarers Chapel and offers many different options to the bride and groom.  The panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean that are also available from the front of the Chapel are also available from this space and still offer views of a majestic bluff and the Pacific Ocean; there is the additional feature of the green space being tiered, which can come in handy with particularly large wedding parties. Next to that space, is a lush garden with what seem to be everblooming roses and other garden pieces that can also be used as a backdrop for the wedding photography portraits.

We the photographers at Caught in the Moment Photography hope that you find our wedding photography style attractive enough to select our photography studio to do the wedding photography for your special day at Wayfarers Chapel.

Questions to Ask Your Portland Conference Photographer

Before signing a contract with a photography company to provide a photographer for the conference you are planning at the Oregon Convention Center in Portland here are 5 questions you must ask.

 

How Familiar Are you with the Venue?

The photographer must be familiar with specific details about the convention center, familiarity with the floorplan, traffic patterns around the facility, parking, etc. The last thing you need is your photographer looking for a parking meter while your keynote speaker is taking the stage.

 

Have you Photographed Plenary Sessions Before?

Your photographer should be familiar with the lighting conditions, and the importance of the expanse of the session rooms.  Plenary sessions are lit very differently than breakouts and you want to make sure your photographer is familiar with analyzing lighting conditions.  Also look for answers that let you know the photographer understands the importance of moments both on and off stage.

Have you Photographed Multiple Concurrent Breakout Sessions Before?

Here is where knowledge of the venue floorplan is extremely important (bonus points if they share shortcuts that you might also be able to take advantage of while on site!) as well as the lighting conditions of the breakout rooms.  Believe it or not different rooms are lit with different color temperature lights.

 

How Much Direction Will you Require from Staff?

This one is a biggie, and you want to make sure that both you and the photographer have an understanding.   You don’t want to realize three weeks after the event that you didn’t get the shots you wanted because there was a communication gap.  Whether you’re a “hand holder” or like your hand to be held, the expectations need to be laid out before the contract is signed.

 

How Soon After the Event Ends Will I Get My Pictures?

The answer to this question will help you plan your post conference outreach.  You want to capitalize on the attendees’ excitement and remind them of the value of attending the conference.  If the answer you get does not mesh with your plan, then at least you know what to expect.

Photographer’s Showcase Garden Feature at Wayfarers Chapel

Aside from the stunning panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean afforded from the Wayfarers Chapel there are other features that make Wayfarers Chapel a beautiful place to have a wedding Ceremony.  The photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography have been doing wedding photography at the chapel for over fifteen years and know all the hidden gems to use a backgrounds for wedding photography portraits.

One of the often overlooked locations to use as background for wedding photography at Wayfarers Chapel that the photographers at Caught in the Moment Photography like to use is the garden and veranda behind the chapel.  This space on the grounds are meticulously manicured by the gardening staff at Wayfarers and offer many different looks to the bride and groom.  In keeping with the panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean that are also available from the front of the Chapel, there is a beautiful veranda that offers picture window look throughs of a majestic bluff and the Pacific Ocean. Adjacent to that space, is a lush garden accentuated by the what seem to be everblooming roses and other garden accents that may be used as a backdrop for the wedding photography portraits.

The photographers at Caught in the Moment Photography not only have decades of combined experience doing wedding photography but they truly enjoy doing wedding photography at the Wayfarers Chapel.  It is our sincerest hope that you will find Caught in the Moment’s photography style appealing and that you will select our studio to do your wedding ceremony photography at Wayfarers Chapel.

An extension of your marketing team while in Long Beach

Thank you for making Caught in the Moment Photography a part of your Long Beach team.

 

Our goal is to become an extension of your marketing team while in Long Beach to give you great imagery to document the conference and give you content to help you market upcoming events.

 

What to Expect
Caught in the Moment Photography has been covering conferences and conventions for over 15 years, and all our photographers know the type of images you are looking for.  Here (http://www.caughtinthemoment.com/conferences) are a few of the types of images to expect.

 

How to Communicate

While in Long Beach, the best way to communicate with your photographer will be via text.  He/She will be very active going in and out of rooms, and to be as inconspicuous as possible will not be answering phone calls.

Select a preferred photographer for Hotel Maya

The Hotel Maya in Long Beach, California is a beautiful place to have a wedding Ceremony.  The photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography have been on the preferred photographers’ list for over fifteen years.  The preferred photographers list is a list put together by the Hotel Maya staff of wedding photographers that have proven to be outstanding wedding professionals.

The photographers at Caught in the Moment Photography were chosen to be on the list because of their vast experience doing wedding photography throughout Long Beach, but of course particularly at the Hotel Maya.  Hotel Maya is a popular wedding venue to hold a wedding ceremony partly because of the many different looks that the venue has to offer to the bride and groom.  Perhaps the most appealing is the panoramic views of the Long Beach skyline that are available from virtually all of the event spaces on the grounds. One of the most popular spaces to hold a wedding ceremony is in the Jardin de Reyes.  This space offers in addition to the already mentioned panoramic views, a tiered terrace that may be used as a stage, bistro lights criss-crossing the space, and a lush garden that may be used as a backdrop for the wedding photography portraits.

We, the photographers at Caught in the Moment Photography hope that you select us to photograph your wedding ceremony at Hotel Maya, but we highly recommend that even if you do not choose our photography studio to do your wedding ceremony photography that you select one of the other wedding photographers on the preferred wedding vendor list put together by the staff of the Hotel Maya.
