"FINDING THE RIGHT PHOTOGRAPHER FOR YOU" 101
Nowadays it is becoming more and more challenging to wade through the pretenders to find a bonafide genuine visual storyteller who doesn’t believe in taking any shortcuts with your most important day.
Unlike just about any other type of photography, a Wedding is a single moment which cannot be replicated, redone or started over once it has happened.
There are NO second chances to get it right the first time, and because of this, you probably want a photographer who feels the MOST amount of personal responsibility to delivering what YOU expect from them on YOUR biggest day.
HERE ARE SOME IMPORTANT QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER WHEN RESEARCHING....
Should your photographer blend well with your family dynamics?
How much communication do you desire leading up to your big day?
How much will you rely upon your Photographer on your big day to guide you through any craziness?
How much of your Wedding would you like captured forever?
How many special details are you planning for your big day?
Are there special people coming in for your wedding which are very important to you?
How do you want your images delivered?
Do you plan to eventually print your images?
Would a Family Heirloom quality Album be something your family would value for generations?
How would you like to pay for the services you select?
Does paying a small amount up front and equal monthly payments help your production budget?
Would you like to be able to defer payments until after the wedding?
