How to Choose a Wedding Photographer

How to Choose a Wedding Photographer - You want your wedding photographer to capture everything that makes your day special, to capture you at your best, to deliver photographs that live up to your expectations. Here tips for selecting wedding photography that you can live with throughout your new life together.

How to Choose a Wedding Photographer

A reputable wedding photographer should have a physical location. A physical location where you can find them when you need them and where you can meet with them safely is important. Brick and mortar wedding photography studios build trust within the community and with their clients. If your wedding photographer does not have a local address (not a PO Box) that they will share with you, it's a good reason not to trust them. They might work out of their house, but do you know where that is? A physical office or studio is paramount to them being trustworthy. Would be you be willing to have a random stranger come to your house, or for you to go to their house? It's safer and more reliable to choose a wedding photographer with a studio or office you can visit and where you can find your photographer.

A good wedding photographer should help make your day go more smoothly. Aside from a dedicated wedding planner, your photographer is the only vendor who is going to be spending the entire day with you. A good wedding photographer should make things easier for you. They should solve problems. Your wedding photographer should be flexible. They should be able to adapt and thrive in difficult situations. Find out more about their abilities and ask about a difficult lighting scenario, bad weather, or other catastrophe and find out how they dealt with it in the past.

You need your wedding photographer to be focused on you. When you meet with any wedding photographer for the first time, do they ask about you, get to know you, and find out what you want? Or do only they talk about themselves and what they do? Find a photographer who is willing to spend time getting to know you so you know they understand you and your needs. This is the best way to find out if they are a good fit for you.

Your wedding photographer should be knowledgeable and helpful. They should offer suggestions about options you have for different things, provide advice on scheduling and setup, be full of ideas, and be ready to make your day and your planning easier. A good photographer is big on planning. Your photographer should work with you before an engagement session to select clothing and location. Your wedding day photography should be scheduled as part of your day rather than as an afterthought. Photography does not have to be inconvenient - it can be a fun and integral part of your day.

It might sound strange, but not all wedding photographers are the same and not all photographers are a good fit for every client. If your wedding photographer meets you and finds out about what you are looking for and then tells you that they don't think they would be a good fit for you, it might be surprising, but it's nothing personal. Wouldn't you rather a professional be honest about this than trying to change to meet your needs? Sometimes photographers realize that what they specialize in is not the same thing a client wants. Photographers don't want to make you unhappy, and if a wedding photographer thinks you might be happier with a different style of photography or with a different situation, we will tell you before you book so you are not disappointed later.

Do You Like Wedding Dress ?

Do You Like Wedding Dress ? 

Bring Your Accessories

While most salons will have shoes and a slip on hand for you to try on with your gown, you should still come prepared with a nude bra and underwear for the fittings. Also bring shoes with a similar height as what you plan on wearing at the wedding, so you can see how the dress falls with your heels. And try on your other day-of accessories (if you have them), like your veil or cover-up, to get an idea of how your whole look will come together.
Trust Your Instincts

If you have to be reassured that the dress looks great on you, it's probably not “the one." If you can't see yourself walking down the aisle in it, move on. When you find the right dress, you'll know—you won't want to put on anything else. Have some tissues handy; it will be an emotional moment!

Wedding Dresses – 5 Easy Steps Towards Your Dream Wedding Gown!

Wedding Dresses – 5 Easy Steps Towards Your Dream Wedding Gown!
Have you been searching for the perfect wedding dress?

Are you feeling overwhelmed?
Studies show that the first piece of the wedding puzzle (a puzzle that ultimately yields your wedding day) that brides attempt to find is the perfect wedding dress. It does not matter if you are in New York City, a third world country or on a deserted island with the man of your dreams, the next question for a soon to be bride after a joyful “yes” is…what will I wear? “The closet is full and not a thing to wear” is NOT a valid complaint this time around. You want to look your best and you deserve the best. You have been waiting for this day since you were old enough to think and this is precisely where the importance of the dream wedding dress comes in.

In order for you to FEEL like a princess you must first LOOK the part, the feeling will follow shortly after.

Preserve your sanity with my tips below. To find the best dress that suits your wedding and personal style, I suggest the following:

1. Steer Clear of the “MUST-HAVE” Trends: Not all trends flatter every single body type. We are all shaped differently, so choose a gown that will flatter your shape. This does not mean that you should not incorporate the latest style into your wedding attire, but rather first know your fabulous body type and shop around to see what works for you!

2. Have an open mind: Contrary to popular belief it’s absolutely fine to add a bit of color to your white gown. Colors that look great on wedding dresses can range from gold and silver to even brighter colors. The trick is to go with the “less is more” philosophy. Adding some color to the flower embellishments on your gown can give a unique, fresh look to your dress.

3. Less is More: Spending more on a dress does not necessarily mean that it will look better on you or look more expensive to your guests. Be realistic about your budget; If you do your research, know your body type and add a few inexpensive unique touches to your gown, everyone will be wondering who designed your dress! One of my brides fell in love with an extremely expensive designer over dress that she couldn’t afford. To make her happy we decided on a solution: we bought a plain reasonably priced gown and accessorized it to match the designer version. Not only did we save thousands of dollars, but the guests couldn’t stop talking about her gown- they loved the unique details!

4. Minimize the audience to 2 people if possible: Shopping for the perfect wedding dress can be confusing enough, but if you mix in an audience of 20 emotional women this will be even more difficult. Here is the key: find your top 3 picks and then bring your friends & family to provide final feedback.

5. Listen to your gut: I didn’t fully understand what that meant until I was getting married myself. When you see the dress that is meant to be yours, ladies I guarantee that you will just know it! It looks magical to you, feels comfortable and you can imagine yourself wearing it for the entire day.

Remember, shopping for your wedding dress is meant to be a magical experience that you need to fully experience as part of your journey to the next phase of your life. Most importantly, you will rock any wedding gown if you feel joyful, excited and full of life inside.
