Today is the last day in our "Ask the Photographer" series, what a fun series it has been! We love all of our photographer friends and wanted to say a big THANK YOU to all of them for participating! Their advice on the subject has been fantastic and we know we speak for them as well when we say we hope some of this advice has helped any bride or groom-to-be! Make sure to check out these talented people's websites as well to peruse their galleries and blogs, they're definitely worth a look!
For today's post we asked our photographer friends if there is one thing their clients are especially grateful they did when it came to wedding photography, what would that be? Not surprisingly, prioritizing photography at the top of the must-haves list is a common thread. Keep reading to see what other couples are most grateful for when it came to preserving those wedding memories:
"Prioritize it and choose a photographer that you click with (pun intended!)! Wedding photos are one of the only things you’ll have forever from your wedding day, and I’ve never met a couple that wasn’t grateful for the effort and time they put into finding the right photographer for them, and prioritizing photography in their budget. I’m so grateful for the clients I’ve had the opportunity to work with, and truly believe I have the best couples in the world! For them, photography is special and important, and so for me, it makes my job just that much more fun! In addition to that, I’d say they are grateful for meeting with the photographer, learning about their process, and then trusting them to do their thing! That creates the best photos possible! And finally, my clients who choose to get a custom heirloom album couldn’t love it more. It’s such a special memento from their big day they can share with family and friends, and pass along for generations!" -Lauren Carnes Photography
"Our work is not just a job, it is our family’s passion and life since childhood (literally)!). We try not to require our brides to do too much thinking when it comes to our job. We work as hard as we possibly can to give you the most quality images and moments possible on your wedding day. We try to deliver about double the amount of images that most photographers do, because we feel like our client deserves it.. We also deliver a full printed version as well as the digital copy with our packages to insure that your wedding is not lost in cyber space. A tangible product is still alive and valuable." -Mark Williams Studio
"I would say for sure the most common comment I get from my clients is that they saw in their photos so many parts of the day that they didn’t even know happened or don’t even remember. The groom getting ready. The guests arriving for the ceremony. The guests during the ceremony. Cocktail hour. Parents and guest reactions during toasts, dances, etc. Funny or emotional in between moments. Those are the photos that together help weave the story of your wedding day together and are probably the most treasured by my couples." -Britt Croft Photography
