FAQs: Hiring a Wedding Photographer 101

Hiring a Wedding Photographer 101
Planning a wedding can be a daunting task. Weddings involve many moving parts: where will we hold our ceremony? Which reception venue best fits our needs? What food will we serve our guests? Which flowers should we choose? Should we hire a band or a DJ?

It’s important to remember that your big day will be busy. Time will move far faster than you expect it will. You and your betrothed will be getting ready, prepping your vows, making toasts, enjoying your guests. When your big day is over, the photos taken that day will capture all of these moments, and you should trust only a seasoned professional with the honor of photographing the most special day of your life. While your day will eventually come to an end, the memories will live on indefinitely through the images captured by your photography team.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. Below are insights on frequently asked questions.
