Hey everyone! I was featured in a blog with other professional photographers, along with some of my photog friends for Dallas Party Ride! I wanted to share with you all so you could get some more advice from different photographers, not just me! 😉 You can check the blog out here! So many other photographers shared their advice in this blog so you should check it out and hear from the professionals!
Here is the advice I put into the blog!
1. Hire Pros.
Making sure you hire someone who knows what they’re doing and who’s been in the industry for more than a couple years ensures that you’ll be receiving great quality & capturing all aspects and special moments from your wedding day. It’s best to start planning early so you aren’t rushed and to ensure your favorite photographer isn’t already booked for your date. Hiring wedding pros (all vendors) helps ease the planning process so you’ll have a more relaxed day.
2. Get to Know Each Other.
Getting to know your photographer is a big part of the process. Read up and follow your photographer on social media before you hire them to get a feel for their personality and work. Upon hiring your photographer, I suggest doing an engagement session with whoever is photographing your wedding day. It’s at this time, during the engagement session, when the photographer and couple get to know each other best, you learn how the photographer directs and poses you to capture the best moments between you – capturing your love for one another in the best way. This is a great transition process to prepare you for the big day.
3. Have Fun and Enjoy the Process.
Be best part of the engagement to wedding process is all the fun moments you share with each other. This process only happens once between you two and what an exciting time! But most importantly, don’t get bogged down on the little things and just enjoy this time between you two.
