#1 – All Things Bridal Event – Photography

by z.lynn

as a wedding photographer, i feel compelled to begin our 30 day journey with a wedding topic so near and dear to my heart.

your wedding is a day that you will remember for the rest of your life. you want to be able to cherish those precious moments through your wedding album for years to come. the investment, now, of your time, energies and monies will pay off in the end in the form of treasured memories that will allow you to re-live your beautiful wedding day time and time again.

photographers are artists and that being said, no two are wholly alike. it is important to choose a photographer whose style you like and who has a personality that works well with yours. along those same lines, don’t choose a photographer solely based on price. that old saying, “you get what you pay for”, sometimes reigns true in this instance. look for the quality in their work, their attention to detail, their passion for what they do – all important qualities to have in a wedding photographer.

here are some of my tips to make the experience better:

  • if you haven’t already started, start looking NOW!
  • take time to scroll through their work
  • sit down face to face to discuss your needs and get a feel for them as a person (use Skype, if they are out-of-state)
  • prepare a wedding day schedule for them as well as a list of shots that you must have and those that you don’t want
  • schedule an engagement session or bridal session; you get to see their style in action and receive tips to help you look your best on your day
  • relax and have fun
