Make The Connection

It’s really important that you connect with your photographer. You will be spending your whole wedding day with he or she, so you want to make sure it’s someone you love to be around! Choose someone who is going to be your biggest supporter and cheerleader.

Ask To See Their Work

Before booking your wedding photographer, ask to see anywhere from two to four full wedding galleries! This will give you a good idea about what kind of photographer he or she is and how he or she shoots and poses during the day. You can also tell if this photographer can shoot in both natural light and using a flash for indoor activities.
