Here at Fairytale Productions, we love startups! We are big supporters of small business and individual creativity. However, when it comes to something as important as your wedding day photography and videography, we wanted to give you a few key things to consider as you make this important investment.

Photo Feature: Samantha & David
We had so much fun with Samantha & David on their June 4th wedding with their ceremony at George George Memorial Park in Clinton Township with reception at Lakeland Manor in St. Clair Shores! These two rocked a blue and pink color scheme in a really fresh and classy way and had a relaxed but romantic feeling throughout their whole day that allowed their whole bridal party and their guests to enjoy the experience.

3 Benefits of Booking Your Photographer & Videographer Together
It is common practice for modern day couples to book their photographer first of all major services. Many times, the videography is much farther down the list of priorities. We understand photography is one of the things brides and grooms look forward to most, and are most excited to lock in for the day. However, we recommend booking with a company who can provide both Photo and Video services for your wedding day because of the benefits of the vendors working together. Here are 3 of those benefits: 1) Cooperation Your photographer and videographer working together means that they will be conscious of one another's shots, and not step in the

Post-Wedding Portraits: Why They’re a Great Idea
Wedding photography, along with videography, is one of the most important aspects of a wedding day. Both photography and videography are meant to capture the emotions, details, and memories of the day. But wedding photography is also meant to produce gorgeous portraits that you can put up in your home, at your desk at work, or include in your photo album for friends & loved ones to "ooh" and "aww" over. Sometimes, the hustle and bustle of a wedding day doesn't allow for the laid-back feel during the photo shoot that can help achieve the most beautiful portraits you'll keep and look at for years and years.
