Choosing Your Wedding Photographer
"When booking a wedding make sure a good rapport is established
between you and your photographer. A great rapport means a stress free day
for both you and your photographer and most importantly beautiful images."
- Ivan of Images by Ivan Fredericksburg VA Wedding Photographer
"Look for a photographer with some excitement. Excitement will make great photographs. You want to feel comfortable with you photographer. They are the one professional who will spend the most time with you on one of the most important personal days of your life."
J. Bartolome Photography Somersworth, NH Wedding Photographer
"Be mindful when hiring your photographer, does there price seem to good to be true? Well then it probably is. Are you getting professional quality prints, or are they coming from Cosco, Walgreens or worst yet, an average consumer photo-printer that they have laying around? Is your photographer using high quality refrigerated professional film or average over the counter consumer film? In the case of Digital is your photographer using high end professional camera's with 6 megapixels or higher, professional digital camera's go to 14 megapixels!! Remember, your wedding day is a day that can't be repeated, YOU WILL get what you pay for!"
- Kevin Kramer of Advantage Photography, Inc.

"TIP #1 Most photographers will keep YOUR original negatives/digital files and charge you for every reprint you order. The average cost for an 8x10 photo is between $40.00 and $80.00 and 4x6 prints will cost you OVER $5.00 each! This fee is in addition to what you have already paid! Make sure you get the originals, and the rights to print them. You’ve already paid once, you shouldn’t have to keep paying for years to come. TIP #2 The photojournalists approach is to create a story-telling sequence for the couple to remember their day by. It requires the photographer to be versatile in their skills as they adapt for each moment. This allows them to record the day, yet remain as unobtrusive as possible. The photojournalist CAPTURES the image."

"Consider booking your photographer as soon as you set you wedding
date and location. This will assure you get an excellent photographer
before they are booked."
