Before you hire a wedding photographer, read this advice straight from the pros.
Consider Artistic Style
“When searching for a wedding photographer and deciding on your photography budget, keep in mind that you’re looking for so much more than a product or a bargain. You’re searching for an artist that can speak to you through their images, a crafter you can trust to blend your vision with their expertise, and a personality that can bring a sense of calmness and organization to your wedding day.” — Amber Green of Amber Green Photography in O’Fallon, Illinois
Lighting Makes All the Difference
“Lighting is the element that will make your images go from nice to stunning. If it is at all possible to get ready in a room or area that has abundant natural light or a nice big window, that is the best case scenario. Dark rooms make photos difficult and less beautiful.” — Eric Vest of Eric Vest Photography, Inc. in Hanover, Minnesota
Time Really Does Fly
“I wish couples knew ‘wedding time’ is not the same as regular time. When you think you have a half hour for photos, you really only have 15 minutes. Weddings are very fluid, and time just seems to sneak away.” — William Innes of William Innes Photography in Valencia, California
