Fairy tale wedding photo

You have been dreaming about this day since you were a little girl. You probably played with your BFF pretending that the pillow cases on your heads were veils and walking each other on an imaginary aisle.
You have been entering competitions and put your name on countless emailing lists ever since he  popped the big Q! Perhaps, secretly, even a little before that!
You came to the conclusion that the day should really have another 10 hours just so you can also get some rest. And go to work. Someone has to pay for this wedding, right!

Even though you have tapped into the knowledge of your bridesmaids, your Mum, your office colleagues, some stranger in a coffee shop, somehow, knowing how to choose a wedding photographer seems somewhat of a decision nearly as important as saying I DO!
Where do you start? The market is saturated with options. How do you know who is reliable? How can you predict that they will deliver the wedding album of your dreams?

Your search has come to a happy ending! Because you just found your wedding photographers in Matthew and Adriana!

Portret

The oldest known portrait in the world comes from Czech Republic. It shows a woman face and was made from mammoth ivory and is about 26,000 years old. Some of the earliest surviving painted portraits of people, who were not kings or emperors, are the funeral portraits that survived in the dry climate of Egypt’s Fayum district. These are almost the only paintings from the classical world that have survived, apart from frescos, though many sculptures survive, and portraits on coins.

The art of the portrait flourished in Ancient Greek and especially Roman sculpture, where sitters demanded individualized and realistic portraits, even unflattering ones. During the 4th century, the portrait began to retreat in favor of an idealized symbol of what that person looked like. (Compare the portraits of Roman Emperors Constantine I and Theodosius I at their entries.) In the Europe of the Early Middle Ages representations of individuals are mostly generalized. True portraits of the outward appearance of individuals re-emerged in the late Middle Ages, in tomb monuments, donor portraits, miniatures in illuminated manuscripts and then panel paintings.

Moche culture of Peru was one of the few ancient civilizations which produced portraits. These works accurately represent anatomical features in great detail. The individuals portrayed would have been recognizable without the need for other symbols or a written reference to their names. The individuals portrayed were members of the ruling elite, priests, warriors and even distinguished artisans.

Photo Boot

Photo Booth consists of a single window containing a viewer that provides a preview when taking photo snapshots or video clips. Thumbnails of saved photos and videos are displayed along the bottom of the window. These can be shown or played by double clicking on the thumbnails.

Clicking the large red button underneath the preview area starts a 3-second countdown, after which a photo is snapped or a video clip begins recording, depending on which setting is selected. Effects can be applied by clicking on the “Effects” button. In addition, users can apply backdrops to provide an effect similar to a green screen. When a backdrop is selected, a message appears telling the user to step away from the camera. Once the background is analyzed, the user steps back in front of the camera and is shown in front of the chosen backdrop.
