It’s the bridal show season, and I thought that potential brides might find this series of tips from Martha Stewart on choosing a wedding photographer to be helpful. Among her suggestions: Find out if the photographer actually studied photography. Look for more than one image from an actual wedding to understand their style of wedding photography. Make sure you will own the personal-use rights to your images following the wedding.
When my brides ask me about these things, I’m happy to tell them that I have a Master’s degree in Fine Arts in photography, that my wedding portfolios always show many photographs of each wedding, and that all of my packages include personal use rights to the images I deliver. I encourage potential brides to look carefully at the tips in the article to help them choose a photographer that is the best choice for them.
