There is so much that goes on for any wedding day and no two weddings are a like. With all the planning and preparations that go into your wedding, most clients want to ensure every detail is documented in a beautiful way. In addition, every bride and groom want to look like the prince and princess they are for that day. Part of being a great photographer is not only the technical skills to take a good photo but the personality to get people's attention, share their vision, adapt to changes and setback (such as bad weather) and to ensure everyone is having a great experience on their most memorable day. The best way to be prepared to be photographed on your wedding day is to have your engagement shoot done by the same photographer as on your wedding. This will help you understand their instructions, how they work with you and for those not comfortable in front of the camera, he will build up your confidence. A great time for the family to feel comfortable with the photographer is having them shoot your engagement party and any other family events. The starting point in this process is meeting your photographer, scheduling times, locations and establishing what are the key elements of the day. And finally what products the client (you) are expecting after all is said and singed for. There is no obligation to sign anything upon the first meeting, however to confirm the date(s), a deposit must be paid and contract signed.
