Picture Perfect - Photographers

There are two big commitments when you are in the wedding planning process: who you will spend the rest of your life with and who the photographer is. If you are planning a wedding, it's safe to say that you have already made the first commitment!

After talking to numerous married couples, I realized that often times the details become blurred in the midst of all the excitement of getting married. While yes, you want to make it an experience that both you and your guests will enjoy, there are few things you will remember your wedding by. One thing that would last forever, though, are the pictures.

Here are a few things to consider when browsing and booking: 

Mission and Passion

I've met a ton of photographers who love their job and love the people they work with as well. They dig for the relationship and communication between the two of you and him/herself. A photographer that has the same mission as you will be the most enjoyable at the end of the day. They will capture the moments that you want to remember.


There are a million and one photographers with various styles. There are those who are cool toned, warm toned, light & airy, vibrant, all things bokeh, the list goes on. But which one will you love 10 or 20 years down the line? Which one will be your Facebook profile picture for more than a year?
