What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
The most important things to consider when hiring a wedding photographer are first, you like their photography shown on their website, portfolio, and blog. The second most important thing to consider is if you like them as people. Often times your wedding photographers will be with you the whole day so you want to make sure they won't drive you crazy. Definitely meet with the photographers you are considering before booking them.
Try to put less importance on the cost of the photographer or what is included in the packages because it you don't have excellent photography you won't love all the stuff you get either! Remember, when it's all said and done, your photographs will be what lives on forever.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
A wedding photographers work only just begins after shooting a wedding. We spend five to ten times more time on the post production of your photographs then the time we actually spend shooting.
