Planning a big, elaborate party for a day so emotionally important to you is not easy, and it's not something you do everyday. All of your friends, the wedding blogs, and magazines will tell you that your photography is extremely important, which means there's a lot of pressure to choose the right one. So how do you make sure you choose wisely?
One of the very first and best things you can do is pay attention to the photos your friends post when they get married. When there are photos you've loved, ask your friends who their photographer was and how their experience with the photographer went. Then talk to your planner or venue coordinator and ask what they think and who they enjoy working with. Glowing recommendations from these people are invaluable.
Budget is always the top concern and priority during wedding planning, and that is certainly just as true when selecting your photographer. Talk to your planner or venue coordinator so you know what to expect before delving into your research. There are photographers for every budget! Our Collections begin at $3800. We suggest narrowing your list down to your top 3 favorites within the price range you're willing to spend.
While this might seem obvious, it can sometimes get lost behind budget. The truth is, style is subjective and can vary wildly between photographers. Do not ignore style. Let's break down what constitutes a photographer's style.
