What to Look for In a Wedding Photographer Beyond the Beautiful Images

Beyond Beautiful Images...

What to look for in a wedding photographer beyond beautiful images for one of the most special days of your life is not an easy job.  Where do you start?  Well, of course it is important that they have experience in shooting WEDDINGS.  Many people can take pictures and beautiful ones at that, but a wedding is a whole different event to take on...it is a living, breathing, constantly changing day that is hours long and has many emotions, personalities and faces to it.  A day that starts with a schedule (and hopefully stays close to it), but takes on a path of its own as the story unfolds.  The details of the dress hanging, perfectly lit by the sunlight through the window...waiting for you to give it shape and life.  The laughter between you and your bridesmaids as you prepare your hair JUST so.  The tear your mom or dad is holding back when they see you...their beautiful daughter.  The look on your beloveds face when he first lays eyes on his beautiful bride.  The moment the ring is slipped on your finger... THESE are the moments that will never happen again.  The moments you want to have captured, so that when you pull out your wedding album ten or twenty years down the road...you see, remember and feel it again. 

The person you choose to capture all of this...well, it's not an easy task.  Beyond taking beautiful pictures and having the top of the line camera equipment, your photographer has to be intuitive.  Watch everyone, their behaviors and be able to anticipate reactions before they happen.  They need to be able to go with the flow when changes occur and mesh with all different personalities.  It is incredibly important as well that the bride feels completely comfortable with the photographer.  There is a certain relationship that starts to happen between the two... and the hope is that things just flow naturally.  The comfort, calmness and personality of who photographs your wedding will show in every way through out the day to you, your bridal part and your guests.  Feeling at ease and comfortable with your photographer is incredibly important.  Take time to meet for coffee, have phone conversations periodically just to catch up on how planning is going or to ask for advice in the process!  After all, your wedding photographer should be very experienced and knowledgable!  Find someone FUN too!  You will be working with this person before, during and after the entire journey of your wedding...so make sure you love them!

Why you should choose a female wedding photographer for your special day...

February 24, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

I happen to love the male sex!  Don't get me wrong!  

However, there are many reasons I believe a female photographer is the best choice on your wedding day...

(Here are a few- in no particular order)

 

-You know we will watch your hair and makeup through out the day.

-You can ask if something looks "right" and we will tell you the truth!

-The relationship we build together!

-We have "been there"...

-We can help hold the dress in the bathroom if needed! ;)

-You can borrow our gloss after your first kiss is over!

-We understand the best ways to bring out your best features!

-You don't have to worry when your changing... lace or granny undies- we have them too!  ;)

-Just because we can fit in like one of the girls...all day long!
