YOUR WEDDING INVESTMENT

I know I’m bias, but I believe one of the most important things you can do when planning your wedding is deciding on a photographer. When people hear I’m a photographer they love to talk about their own experiences being photographed, and one of the most common things that I hear a from couples are their regrets about their wedding photos. It always surprises and saddens me, so without trying to give advice, here’s a few things I highly recommend considering when making your decision on which photographer to choose to capture your day. Not because I want you to pick me (although I do 😉 ) but because I don’t want anyone to experience what its like to be disappointed with their wedding photos. So here are my top tips to choosing your wedding photographer.

  • Make sure you check out a full wedding so you get a sense of what to expect from a day’s coverage. Anyone can post a single great image on Insta or even construct a blogpost with the highlights, but, seeing a full wedding will give you a much better idea of the photographers priorities to where they will spend their time as well as the style they shoot in.
  • Experience is super important! Even though I still love many of the images I made as a new photographer I just couldn’t add as much value to a wedding day as I could now, having photographed hundreds of weddings. Seeing all sorts of unexpected situations occur on a wedding day has made me more adaptable when things don’t go as planned (weather, timeline etc).  The role of photographer is multifaceted! On a wedding day a photographer also play the role of art director, wedding planner, and the list goes on, so the more experienced your photographer is, the more able they will be to make quick decisions to help your day run that much more smoothly.
  • Ask about the role your photographer will play with helping prep for your day. As I suggested above, we’ve seen what works and what doesn’t and should be generous with this knowledge in helping assist with your run sheets and all the other logistics on the day!
  • And the best for last…make sure your personalities are a good fit! This makes such a difference as you’ll be spending A LOT of time together!
 

My Philosophy

Both wedding planning and being photographed can be an intimidating experience. If you are feeling a bit apprehensive about the photography on your day, it’s totally normal for either the bride or groom (or both!) not to be a fan of photos. I think about 70 % of the people I work with are reluctant subjects, and I get that, I’m not a professional model either!

A lot of couples don’t know how to curate the look, the moment, the image that they’re after. I can help eliminate these unknowns to create something you are going to love. 

From our first communications to the exciting day you receive your photos, I’m here to support you plan a day that runs smoothly, and ensures that you get the beautiful images you want as well as the many other precious moments captured.
