01. Know Your Style:
Find not only what style appeals to you now, but will for generations to come. Even for couples who are not photography savvy, we suggest making a collection of your favorite wedding photos that you’ve seen and ask yourself why you like them. Looking beyond photography trends will lead you to discover your true taste.
02. Ask The Overlooked Questions:
Generally, when planning a wedding, there are questions that can be missed. The most common questions are availability & cost. While these 2 questions are no doubt what we think you should lead off with, other questions such as what is your approach to wedding day photography? Your experience with your photographer on your wedding day is just as important as the final images you receive. Overlooked questions can and should lend some crucial insight into how your photographer operates.
03. Make Sure You & Your Photographer Mesh:
We find that a meeting with our Brides & Grooms is the way to go. Of course, during this time, it may not be possible to have an in-person meeting, however, a video chat or a simple phone call can give you insight if that photographer would be a match. You are spending the majority of your wedding day with the photographer. We believe that it is imperative for both sides that the photographer and Bride & Groom mesh and gel well.
When it comes to selecting your wedding photographer, it really all boils down to choosing someone who jives with your style and who you can mesh with. When you have that genuine connection with your photographer,they will do a better job capturing your emotions, your love, your joy, your day!
Typically, weddings tend to be a whirlwind for the Bride & Groom. From getting ready, to the ceremony, to the formal session, to the reception, we believe that you 100% need someone there that you can trust.
These tips (although modified) can also be utilized for other vendors such as your venue coordinator, videographer, DJ, etc.
