What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
So your wedding is coming up and some family friend just bought a new camera and wants to experiment on your wedding day. Why not right?
Your wedding is a once-in-a-lifetime event that you will never be able to bring back again, and the only thing you are going to have when it's over is (obviously) your new spouse, a top layer of cake that will sit in your refrigerator for a year, a wedding dress that will sit in your closet for the next 60 years, and more importantly - your PICTURES. Make sure to hire a professional who has mastered the fine art of capturing weddings, rather than taking a chance with an amateur. After capturing over 100 weddings with elegance and style, I promise you won't regret putting that special job in my hands.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
There really is a wide range of wedding photographers out there, so it's best to do a little research before hiring one for your once-in-a-lifetime event. I've heard of photographers wandering around charging for family portraits at the wedding, or charging thousands of dollars for a couple prints after the wedding so you never actually can afford to get your pictures, and all sorts of sneaky tactics. If you're looking for a candid style photographer who won't cause unnecessary stress on your wedding day, you've found the right one. I keep group pictures short and sweet so you can enjoy your wedding rather than spend your day smiling for the camera. I focus on capturing the priceless moments that happen spontaneously throughout your day so that when you look back at your pictures, you will remember the priceless moments, and not just see yourself being posed for a camera.
