Your wedding photographer is the one person who will spend the most time with you during your wedding day (usually even more time than your husband or wife to be, strange as that is…).
You’ve got a lot of photographers to choose from. You could call them all, but you’d probably prefer to have a life… So you’ve got to narrow it down.
You’ve gotta like the photos, of course. That pretty much goes without saying.
Beyond that, you’ve gotta like the photographer. And (here’s the part you might not know) she's gotta like you right back.
Because it’s hard (maybe even impossible) to create beautiful, honest and emotionally meaningful wedding photos when you aren’t comfortable with each other. The tension will show, whether you want it to or not. Part of the magic of photography is that it captures truth.
The truth you want to have radiating from your wedding photos is probably joy. And love. And anticipation. And maybe some of the nerves and bittersweet tears, too.
So that brings us back to where we started. To get all that, you’re going to need a photographer you like and who likes you.
So here’s a quick test…
…if you are hopelessly, passionately and completely in love with your husband or wife-to-be, and the only stop-the-presses, gotta-have-it part of your wedding day is that you end up married to the person you love…
…we’re going to get along just fine. :-)
