6 Things Your Wedding Photographer Wants You To Know

1.  Make sure the photographer’s style fits your desired look.   When choosing a photographer for your big day, take some time to look at examples of their previous work to make sure their style matches the look you want for your photos.   2.  Develop a relationship with your photographer.   Getting to know your photographer can help you feel more relaxed and comfortable on the big day.
