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.

St Louis wedding venue/Barnett on Washington

Today we feature an elegant and classy St Louis event space Barnett on Washington. We interviewed Barnett’s management team. What a beautiful event space, we couldn’t resist to take few photographs! Check advices and tips from the St Louis wedding experts.

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?

St Louis portrait photography/ Brianna

There is something that is hard to express with the words “FEELINGS”.

Love is feeling we all writing about, crying about, and laughing about. We had privilege to tell Brianna’s story of love.

The person she loves lives far away. Since he can’t be often close to her he sends letters, gifts and teddy bear. How cute is this! Brianna loves to keep those gifts very close to her.

Once we start planning Brianna’s session brainstorming starts in Photo Elegance team.

How to achieve meaningful session for young couple and make them feel they are strong and together even a thousand miles apart. We introduce idea to Brianna about fashion styled photo session.

You know we have passion for fashion! All started early morning with professional hair and makeup by amazing  Jessie Gomez.

Styling was fun part. We choose outfits, shoes, jewelry! Brianna brought stylish, elegant and fashionable clothing. Lot to choose from, we loved it.

Location choice was Crepes in Central West End St Louis.

Crepes gave perfect modern fell to the photoshoot and after long day photographing beautiful Brianna we all have a sweet treats at the same place.

Our images are just one part of story about her LOVE. This story is very close to our hearts.
