How to choose a Wedding Photographer

If you’re a bride or groom who values photography, the task of picking a wedding photographer can be daunting and somewhat scary.

After all, there are no re-dos. You’re going to get married once, and you only have one shot to pick a photographer.

Three simple pieces of advice:

1 – Make sure that when you view their photos, you love the style. 

    You are hiring an artist with a specific eye and heart. You want to resonate with how they see and capture the world around them.

    And if you love photos when looking through their portfolio you are guaranteed to love your own photos.

What are the most important things a bride should consider when choosing a wedding venue?

  • Know your style. What kind of wedding do you visualize? Classic, eclectic, rustic, modern.
  • Can the venue accommodate the size of your party?
  • Know your non-negotiables.
  • Is the perfect date more important than the perfect venue? You may have to be flexible.
  • Do you want to work with vendors provided by you? If so, a full service venue may not be for you.
  • Can the venue fully execute your vision? How late can the party go until? Are they flexible with setup – seated dinner vs. casual/cocktail style?
  • Be sure to find out everything that is included. Tables, chairs, linens, etc.
  • Size of parking area – is valet an option?
  • Is the venue close to an airport or convenient for all guests to get to?
  • Are you able to utilize your own vendors?
