  • �2 | 2012 Weddings Essentials

    1. First phone call: get a feel for the photogra-pher’s personality over the phone, check on avail-ability for date and time.

    2. Set up interviews with at least two photogra-phers at their studio, where you can look at their portfolio. It’s helpful to bring photos in the style you like. Discuss types of photos and special ef-fects you’d like.

    3. Ask about the photographer’s policies, pack-ages and prices. Ask about cancellation policy. If the photographer has assistants, who will be at your wedding and actually shooting? What will the photographer wear? Will the photographer release the rights to your photos?

    4. Discuss the important “don’t-miss-the-moment” shots.

    5. Schedule photo sessions for bridal portait and other special photo shoots.

    This will be the most photographed day of your lives. Make sure how you look and feel comes across in your wedding photos.

    Look at old photos of yourself and what you liked about them — were you happy, casual and focused on something other than the camera? Try to mimic that look on your wed-ding day.

    Focus on each other, not the cam-era. Let the photographer tell you where to look and how to avoid squinting at the the lens.

    Book the same photographer who took your engagement photos for a sense of familiarity.
