Marriage. That moment in time when it is absolutely critical that a woman asks the right – although tough – questions to ensure the success of her relationship with that oh-so-important person… her wedding photographer.
Yeah, there is a groom but those are a bunch of different questions.
Choosing the right photographer for your wedding day makes everything go much smoother. It can mean the difference between a warm, gushy feeling as she looks on those pictures or a cringe of regret for years to come.
It is our philosophy that wedding photographers should create beautiful portraits with minimum distraction on your wedding day. Guests and others in the wedding will not even notice our presence. We believe in photographing a wedding in a manner and style that captures the events of the day. We want to show people in a relaxed and happy environment.
The first question you should ask yourself when choosing a photographer is, professional photographer or amateur? We’ll come back to that one, it’s one that a lot of couple start with but isn’t a good starting point.
Best start with who you are and what you want. Do you want a photographer to be posing you throughout the day or one that can get great candids? Remember, you’ll be busy on your big day. If your photographer is counting on you to remind him or her that there needs to be a shot with Great Uncle George and another with all of your female cousins, you had best have a lot of energy, organization, or an easy going spirit if some of the shots are missed.
What photographic style do you like? Take the time to see samples. Do faces look happy or is there a theme of impatience, which indicates people felt they were away from the fun too long and frustrated with the photographer? You’ll also get fresh ideas for your photos. Is the photographer willing to do something other than the cookie-cutter poses?
