The wedding album of today is a story of change. Couples planning their marriage ceremony find an overload of styles and ideas to choose from. Often the 1000’s of wedding images afterward end up on the home computer with no album being made at all. It’s a fun challenge for our studio to help the newlyweds navigate through all the photography style choices and organize the overwhelming selection of images.
A great wedding photographer matches the customer with the right look for them. Here are four basic styles of the photographic wedding story. The “candid story” is a more appealing option for today’s couples. It gives a fun more realistic look to the wedding album. There is a high level of skill needed to capture the right moment and specialized equipment with low light capability is a must. The “artistic story” captures an art gallery type image. Emphasis is on composition, color, and lighting. Pictures can be cropped close, off center, and at odd angles. Then, there is “the natural environmental look”. This is best suited where most of the day is spent in a rustic setting. The arrangements are casual, blending into the wedding location. Finally there’s “the traditional look”. It’s kind of a throwback to the traditional style poses, looking at the camera.
Each style offers great elements. Candid and natural have fun and emotion, art has impact and detail, and traditional has perfect expression and posing. A great wedding photographer will give a variety of styles to the story of your wedding. The artistic style is up to the couple to choose and we do our best to determine their preference by giving a finished product that shows off their style and personality.
Once the proofs are delivered the real fun begins. Everyone loves when the pictures are up online 2 weeks after the wedding for all to see. Shortly afterward, the proof book of all your wedding images is ready. If you think seeing all of the images are overwhelming, you are right. A typical 8 hour wedding has around 1200 images to choose from!
All of our wedding packages come with a DVD of high resolution digital images and copyright release. Having a just a proof book or files on a computer doesn't’t best represent the beauty of the day. I think that a good wedding story is told through a quality album that can be opened and enjoyed for decades. We recommend the time and investment in a finished album to complete the photographic journey.
Congratulations on your engagement!

CAPTURING LOVE BEYOND WORDS
We recieved another award from WeddingWire! Thank you to all of our brides and grooms for your continued support!
Much of the retail market and mass media are showering the internet, television and newspaper ads with the "hottest" toys, gifts and trinkets for upcoming Christmas season. While these items are a hit with the relatives, why not give a sentimental gift? A family portrait is a great Christmas gift.
Whether the photo session is a family portrait, recent wedding pictures, or an engagement session, a photograph is a cherished gift. Photographs are an ideal way to celebrate a special occasion, to cherish the growth of children from year to year and to be able to see loved ones when living away.
At Christmastime, you want to give the meaningful and useful gift. A professional photograph can add a special touch to a photomontage, and it is a definite way to put a smile on someone's face.
Anyone will take pictures, but the quality of the photograph might be compromised. A professional photographer knows how to capture the best light, highlight the beauty of the subjects and snap the lens when the best opportunity arises.
Right now is the most suitable time to schedule a photography session. The fall foliage is stunning and serves as the most natural backdrop; no additional props are needed. Fall is also a time of year where you can actually get outside for a photo shoot.
Waiting until right before Christmas, you are at the mercy of the cold and weather. In addition, prolonging a shoot could result in your photographs not being developed until after Christmas. Professional photographers book quickly around holiday time and average turnaround for finished products can take time.
To schedule a professional photography session, contact Foschi Photography today and ask about our holiday savings. We are currently giving a special price on Christmas cards. Giving the gift of a professional family photo makes for the perfect gift.
It’s not too hot or too cold, it’s just right. You can feel that the crispness in the air, the leaves have turned an array of different colors and at the local stores it is pumpkin spiced everything. In Delaware, you know the autumn weather is upon us. With the fall colors, there’s no better backdrop for family photographs or portraits.
Fallen leaves on the ground, bales of hay, specially carved pumpkins, and your family together in one place, can really bring the ambience to a great picture. Nature can be an amazing wonder, and why not capture those great moments on film, and share that magic with your distant family and friends.
That’s where the professional staff at Foschi Photography can help make special allurement happen. Put their 30 years of knowledge and expertise to the test.
Fall Family Day at Foschi Photography is coming up on Saturday, October 11th. This is great time to get your family together on a beautiful weekend and make the most of a photogenic opportunity, with Mother Nature as the backdrop. And with the holidays just around the corner, these pictures can be an awesome add-on to include with any gift.
So if you are in or around the Wilmington area, contact the Foschi Studio and reserve your shoot time. It’s $49.95 which includes the sitting fee and an 8x10. With limited times available, you don’t want to miss this chance. For more information on the event call 302-529-1339.
Your senior portrait is an ideal representation of the big milestone ahead of you. Since graduating high school is the official ending and new beginning to your college journey, you'll want to capture it in a beautiful photograph.
There is no "perfect" time of year to have a senior portrait taken. In fact, now is a great time as school has only just begun. With the cooler temperatures and changing leaves, the fall season is absolutely stunning for outdoor senior pictures.
One factor to consider when scheduling your photography session is timeline. It can take time for your portraits to be ready for pictures. Plus, you will want to take into account the amount of time you need to choose the best shot for the school yearbook.
Since school is in session, scheduling a daytime shoot can be difficult. While I might be available during the day, you won't be. We suggest booking on weekends for senior portraits, which will make picking a date much easier.
If you play a sport or are involved in extracurricular activities and want to include it in your photos, this is the best time for a photo shoot. Now is the time when students are given equipment and it's in the best condition.
If you haven't gotten your senior portraits taken yet, don't panic. September and the months to come are just fine for scheduling a shoot.
