Finding your photographer is more than fitting your tastes into a budget. It is knowing your memories are safe and your photographer is prepared. Read on to learn more about how to choose the best wedding photographer.
Budgeting your wedding can be complicated. There are a few things I'd like to share before you finalize your photography budget. Aside from your love for your partner, your photographer is one of the most important pieces to planning your wedding day. They will document every penny you've spent on attire, florals, decorations, venues, and catering. Most importantly, they will capture the candid moments of your ceremony, the life of your reception, and the love you'll bring together on your special day. It is important to know what you are paying them for. Below, I've outlined what I always come prepared to give and how I deliver and safeguard your memories that will last a lifetime.
Choosing a photographer that aligns with your style preference is key. Personally, I create vibrant and moody images with rich colors and strong contrasts. I hope you'll check out my galleries throughout my site to get a full idea of what I deliver. During the editing process, I like to retouch images because my cameras capture every tiny detail. I like to draw attention to the best parts of your face. Rest assured with smooth editing, I can take care of the blemish that happens to show itself the morning of your wedding day. However, I like to keep things natural and I want the image to draw attention to your emotions and actions. Telling your story beautifully is simply my ultimate goal. Photographs should be like mirrors of your memories. After all, they will serve as a reminder for generations to come.
I am always prepared for equipment malfunction and have several ways of protecting my process and your photographs. I shoot with two professional full-frame Canon cameras. If one camera fails to operate, I always have a backup. I also record images onto two memory cards, simultaneously. You never know when a memory card may fail. After the wedding day comes to an end, my hard work begins. Immediately, I upload your photos to a cloud-based storage service and onto an external hard drive. This means I have four copies of your memories for safe keeping.
Having a written agreement to define and protect the mission is crucial. Having clear descriptions of expectations is important for both client and photographer. I don't want to miss meeting your most important requests because we didn't communicate well. Consultation and open communication about what you want is great, but having it written down is superior. Contracting with your photographer is largely establishing trust, security, and commitment to a common goal.
Getting to Know You
I have several questionnaires that you'll complete prior to the creation your package offer and contract. I want to know who and what is most important to you and what isn't. You've hired me for a certain amount of time and I want to take advantage of every minute. I vow to be prepared beforehand in knowing your special circumstances, your needs, about your family and friends, and I want to respect every part of your lifestyle.
I love coffee, wine, and charcuterie. Let's get together and delve into the details of your vision. I provide personalized packages for every client. Spending time getting to know you and learning about your needs is priceless, that's why I'll never charge just to chat. The quickest way to reach me is via text at (828) 897-1212.
