Sydnee called me shortly before her wedding to do engagements, bridals and wedding day coverage. I was so happy I was available and that we were able to squeeze her in. She had hired another photographer and after receiving her engagements photos back from them she called me in a panic. I can’t stress enough to all of my clients and those that are still “shopping” around how important it is to make sure you hire someone for your wedding day with experience! I’m going to start a blog this year with some information to help you when picking a photographer! It’s so difficult to be able to determine who really is an experienced seasoned photographer because of Instagram! A lot of photographers are participating in Stylized Shoots. They pay to shoot models, pretty set ups and then post those images on their Instagram making a representation that appears they have shot several clients and weddings. It is soooo important that you ask your photographer to see FULL wedding galleries. Don’t be afraid to ask them how many weddings they have shot, what type of equipment they use and how they protect your images. With all the new photographers and the photo trend going on, don’t get stuck with an inexperienced photographer, with only one camera and no guarantee of your images being protected!
