Choosing the right wedding photographer

Match your budget : 

You'll see the word "timeless" used to describe someone's photography style, yet when the images are put in a pile with images from other photographers, it's really hard to tell who took the photographs. Timeless, but unique imagery means images that are uniquely creative and different, but are not over-processed or too unrealistic.  We strive to be unique, while also producing images that are timeless and realistic. 

A great photographer should have a thorough understanding of photography gear and display images that show creativity and technical editing abilities. They should be able to work with different lighting conditions and be able to adjust their settings accordingly to get the best shot possible. They should also be familiar with post-processing techniques to produce compelling and unique images. A photographer that can display the ability to work with off-camera lighting, and show that they can create unique imagery using advanced editing skills, are worth paying more for, and will have the tools and knowledge to deliver your desired outcome from the wedding or photoshoot. 

Know your budget and what your needs are. I get it, there are a lot of photographers out there, or people who have an interest in photography. Knowing your budget and what your desired outcome will be from your photoshoot, will help you choose the right photographer. The lower your budget, the less experienced the photographer will be, and the less likely you will have the desired outcome from your wedding or photoshoot. Reviews, website, years of experience, and reflection of creativity in their portfolio will help you find the right photographer that fits your budget and needs. 

Technical Skill : 

Timeless, But Unique Imagery :

Passion and Creativity :

 Lastly, a great wedding photographer should have a genuine passion for photography and for capturing special moments. They should be excited about the opportunity to be part of your special day and should be committed to creating beautiful and meaningful photographs that you will treasure for a lifetime.
