Choosing Your Photographer
Choosing the right photographer is important to getting the look and feel you want from your photos. Online photography blogs and websites for local photographers will give you a good idea if the photographer’s style matches your own. Make sure you meet with the actual person doing the photography before the wedding; photos are much better with someone you trust.
Get Plenty of Rest

Standard wedding photos are beautiful and traditional, but there are some new traditions that will help you get better photos. One new trend is the “First meeting” photos, and they’re a great opportunity to help you and your betrothed relax and enjoy each other and the rest of the day.
The best photos of any event occur when the subjects are relaxed and natural-looking. You’re put-together, looking great, and you’ve hired a professional photographer whose vision matches your own. Smile bright, relax, and let the day happen. Even those inevitable quirky little moments add to the memories you’ll take with you into your life together.
