Best Tips on How to Hire Your Wedding Photographer

How to Hire Your Wedding Photographer

When planning your wedding, it is very important not to forget hiring a professional photographer. Be picky, be diligent and ask questions! Remember, this photographer will be capturing your love, your memories and your story on this beautiful day! While, of course, the couple is the MOST important thing on a wedding day, it is vital to have memories and photographs that you and your spouse can physically look back on and even share with future generations after the wedding day is over. Also, the human eye can overlook intricate details during a generally chaotic day: Your mother beaming at you with pride, your groom shedding a tear as you walk down the aisle… these are candid and very intimate moments that only a photographer can capture forever!
These are the Best Tips on How to Hire Your Wedding Photographer!

Preliminary Background Questions to Ask Your Photographer

  • Do you have Availability on my wedding day? Will you be shooting it alone or with an assistant/multiple assistants? How far in advance do we have to book?
  • Do you have backup equipment (i.e. cameras, lenses, etc)?
  • Are you a registered business? Are you insured?
  • How long have you been shooting weddings? How many weddings of this size have you done? Could we see a gallery of your previously shot weddings?
  • Have you ever worked with any of our other vendors before ( Videographer, Florist, DJ, etc)?
  • How would you describe your photography style?
  • Do you like to capture more candid moments, or pose a lot of your pictures?
  • Are you a full/part time Wedding Photographer, or do you just do it as a hobby?
  • How will you coordinate with the videographer?
  • What questions do you have for us?

When you think about a prince and a princess, you think about Disneyworld most likely. They all seem perfect tales, filled with love and adventures. But way better is to actually live the dream!

Every girl dreams of being a princess  for a day and marrying her prince.

Natalia and her husband Nikolay were able to live a fairy tale in a magical Beauty and The Beast stylized photoshoot.

Using two locations, All That Shines Events, LLC and Baker Park in Frederick, MD;  we were able to capture the most breathtaking moments between Natalia and Nikolay. You can truly see the love they have shared throughout the day.

Just as Beauty had a little help from Lumiere, Wardrobe, Mrs. Potts, and Cogsworth to create her special look for the ball, Natalia had some amazing vendors to help get her look just right. Special thanks to All That Shines Events, LLC for all the amazing planning and sharing their space for the filming, Spa Noa & Brush Strokes Salon for hair and makeup, April Toney’s Chloe & Isabel Boutique for the “Parisian Belle” by Chloe jewelry, and Flowers by Angels for the beautiful flower arrangements. Natalia looked stunningly gorgeous in her Angelaicos gown making her a true Belle and Nikolay, like a modern day Beast in his Prince Zamira tuxedo.
