2010-2011 Weddings and Questions You Should Ask a Wedding Photographer

I have two June weddings and a July wedding booked for 2011. Yippee!  It’s exciting to have clients in Arkansas and Oklahoma who love my work and recognize the fact that I’m booking popular dates rather quickly.

After checking out some “professional” photos of weddings this last year on people’s social networking sites and their prints, I’m taken aback by what people consider good photography. Maybe I’m too critical because I know what “good” photos are supposed to look like, or maybe people are just trying to be polite, but if you’re shopping around for a wedding photographer I’m offering you some MORE tips to make your decision easier. You may also check out my previous posts about Choosing a Wedding Photographer Wisely and What I Think Makes a Good Photographer.

Preparing for Great Wedding Photos

Plenty of advice is given about planning the wedding day, but sometimes planning for photographs is forgotten. I’d like to help couples think about their part in making their wedding photographs the best they can possibly be.

Think about what the background will be in your photos. What do the walls and floor look like? I’ve done receptions at the historic Bonneville House and the armory. Remember to think about what is on the wall behind the cake, where you will be seated, and other strategic places for photos. Is there unsightly wire, posters, or anything that distracts? Consider some kind of backdrop for those problem areas.
