Tips for great wedding photos

Finding a wedding photographer is not an easy task for any engaged couple. This is the person who will capture every special moment of your wedding day, and you only have one shot to get it right!

I asked my wedding photographer, Sarah Immel, for tips on getting great wedding photos.

Read on to hear what she has to say!

1.  Find a photographer whose work you love, look at all their best stock photos – It’s easy to obsess over price points and packages, but ultimately loving your photographer’s style is what matters most. Look at their website and blog. If you love what you see, they could be the one for you.

2.  You should feel comfortable with the photographer taking care of your wedding photography – You need to connect with him or her. If you don’t, it will show in your photos. You may love their style, but if you are not like minded, it will be hard to enjoy sharing your day with them. Your photographer is going to be with you most of the day, so make sure they are a good match for you.

3.  Set a timeline for the day with your photographer’s input – This helps create a flow to the day and allow enough time to create the photos that are important to you. Share your ideas with them and they will have suggestions to share with you as well on how much time is needed and what locations may be a good fit for you.

4.  Relax, be yourself, and have fun – You hired your photographer for their experience and expertise. Don’t worry about the small stuff, enjoy your wedding, and your photos will be fabulous.

    Gosh, #2 couldn’t be more accurate! I stood up in a wedding where none of the party could stand the photographer! He was obnoxious! I VERY much appreciated enjoying my photographers company, because YES – they are with you ALL day!
