What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
First, ask your friends and family if they know anyone. If they can't recommend anyone, check directories in your area or Google. I say Google as a second option because normally you would look only through the first two pages if so. And those who advertises the services better might not be your best option. Check the wedding websites like wedding wire, wedding knot, etc. If you think you see something you like, visit the website and Google that photographer, check the reviews and style he/she is shooting. Then contact the photographer. Have a list of questions you want to ask so that you will not forget anything important.
