Price and aesthetic of photography are important, but how you feel during and what you actually get is what matters! I share with you (2) big tips to help you find the right photographer!
1. Ask to see a full wedding album/gallery (not just a sample or what's is on their website). Much like you judge a meal by how it tastes (and not just the icing) or you judge the whole dress and not just a button, you should evaluate a photographer by their average work and not just the 'best of'. Every album may have an epic photo of the couple in the sunset, but how do the other "in-between" moments look?
You can always look at my sample work under <PORTFOLIO> but then contact me soon after. Tell me about your wedding, and I'll share with you a full wedding album so that you can see how I cover/photograph a full wedding.
2. After you see a photographer's full work, interview the photographer. You are hiring someone not just to take your pictures, but to spend the the day with you and your loved ones. This person will be responsible for bringing the best out of everyone. By spending about 45 minutes with a person (and hopefully asking tough questions), you'll get a feel for this person (chemistry?). Everyone has a different personality. We each work differently. Our approach to wedding photography is as unique as each individual. There is no right or wrong but there is the optimal photographer for you.
Hopefully, you like both my work and me as a person. I'd love to be considered to be your wedding photographer.
Most professional wedding photography (in the Nashville, TN area) will range from $2000-$5000. My standard package is a 7-hour session for $2300. I also have shorter packages to fit all budgets and if you need all day coverage, that is available too. Also, be sure to check out my bucket list (under <INFO>) to see if your wedding qualifies for other incentives (it's also a great and growing list of wedding theme ideas if you're still designing yours!).
I also shoot portraits, lifestyle family sessions and engagements. My standard lifestyle family, engagement or portrait sessions start at $300.
