What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
I'd want to look at what i call the "Three P's" - Portfolio, Pricing and Personality. You want a photographer who will give you the style and quality of photos that you want, and at a price you can afford. But that means nothing unless this is also a person you'd like to work in close contact with on one of the most important (and most stressful) days of your life. Meet with your photographer, check out his/her references, be certain that this is the person for you.
