Wedding Planning Tip #2

Meet with photographer that will documenting your wedding day.

A photography studio can potentially send any photographer…don’t sign a contract unless you agree with this policy.

The bottom line- make sure that you know who will be showing up on the day of your wedding!

Wedding Planning Tip #4

Don’t let price be the only factor when hiring your photographer.

Is your photographer a single shooter or will they be bringing an assist?

Is retouching included and will all your final photos be edited or unedited?
