When the time comes to make a decision as important as photographing your special event, an Engagement, Wedding or Vow Renewal, be sure to put time into selecting a photographer that is a good match for your budget and style.
Here are a few tips from Sally Ullman Photography. Sally is a custom photographer, which means she listens to what you want to own and have recorded to share with family and friends. Making an announcement to the world to SAVE THE DATE also has long lasting memories.
Consider the following:
MATCH TO YOUR STYLE:
Do you like formal portraits, photo journalism or candid photography.
This will help you narrow down your choices.
GET TO KNOW THE PHOTOGRAPHER:
Research their website, testimonials about them and CALL them.
Hear their voices and ask them questions. Be detailed and precise- do not think you should bother with all the details in advance. YES, you need to be detailed or your coverage may fall short of your expectations.
What is their backup plan should an emergency occur or a change in your date or timing.
Are they insured and a member of a national photography organization such as PPA, Professional Photographers of America?
Don’t hire a friend or an amateur for an event that cannot be recreated!
