Why choosing a wedding photographer is as important as choosing the person you marry:) 

Updated: 6 days ago



You end up spending more time with your wedding photographer than pretty much anyone else on your wedding day so it's so important that you choose someone you vibe with. The relationship with the couple and photographer is a fully collaborative experience from the minute you reach out and share your love story to building a timeline that aligns with your values and goals for your wedding day to setting the energy of the wedding day and wearing all the hats to ensure the day and celebration aligns with your vision! I highly recommend asking yourself the following questions before choosing a photographer. 


What moments do you care to be documented and in what style? 


A wedding is a celebration of love, commitment, and the beginning of a new chapter. A skilled wedding photographer plays a pivotal role in capturing the raw emotions, joy, and intimate moments that make up your special day. Ask yourself if you want all staged, posed photos or documentary-style photos of honest, candid moments or a mix! Different styles of photography will heavily influence the overall experience of your wedding celebration. These captured memories that tell the FULL STORY become treasures that you'll cherish for a lifetime, allowing you to relive the magic of your wedding whenever you revisit your photo album. 


Your photographer’s energy is a HUGE part of your day: 


Beyond freezing moments in time, a professional photographer contributes to the overall ambiance of your wedding. Their ability to blend into the background while artfully documenting the day ensures that you and your guests can fully immerse yourselves in the celebration. The right photographer can add a touch of magic to your wedding, and often does much more than only photography. Photographers truly wear all the hats! I, for instance, have sewn buttons, redone makeup, managed family members, been a wedding day therapist….. Etc.


Investment in Quality:


Choosing a professional photographer is an investment in the quality of your wedding memories. While there may be budget-friendly alternatives, the expertise, equipment, and artistic eye of a seasoned photographer cannot be replicated. Think of it as an investment in the legacy of your love – a visual narrative that will be passed down through generations. Truly think about how much you value each aspect of your wedding (florals, food, music, photos) and invest accordingly. I have each of my couples take time to do this on our discovery call.


Do due diligence: 


Selecting the perfect photographer requires careful consideration. Look for someone whose style aligns with your vision, energy, style and don't hesitate to ask for references. Consider their experience, portfolio, and reviews from previous clients. To guide you further, check out our detailed guide on How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Photographer (The Knot).

Your wedding photographer is more than just a vendor; they are the storyteller of your love story and become a huge component of the wedding celebration in the process. As you navigate the intricate details of wedding planning, remember that choosing the right photographer is a decision that resonates far beyond the wedding day itself. Prioritize this choice, and you'll find that the memories captured will be as timeless and enduring as the love you celebrate, because that’s the goal afterall!
