The photographer you select shapes how you’ll remember your wedding forever. You might find this series of tips from Martha Stewart on choosing a wedding photographer to be very helpful. Among the 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. Make an appointment to meet them to see if you connect and feel comfortable around them.
When my brides and grooms 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 also really enjoy getting to know each couple, their family and friends by spending as much time with them as possible before their wedding day. Engagement sessions are a wonderful way to get comfortable with your photographer. I also enjoy attending rehearsal and sometimes, rehearsal dinner. I encourage couples to look carefully at the tips in the article to help them choose a photographer that is the best choice for them. To read what my clients are saying about me, click here.
