Wedding Planning Tips – our top three! . Wedding Photography By Amelia and Dan

we were recently asked for three pieces of essential advice for newly engaged couples shopping for their wedding photography. here’s how we answered.

#1 REMEMBER WHAT YOUR WEDDING DAY IS REALLY ABOUT

kiawah island wedding photography

you are making a commitment to be on a team together for life with your best friend.  it is an awesome experience, and a very important promise. always remember to never lose sight of the marriage while planning the wedding, then don’t forget to laugh and enjoy every single second.

#2 SAVOR EVERY MOMENT

Confederate home weddingin order to do that, you need to invest in the people and services that will help you relax and enjoy the day. everyone will tell you that the day goes by in a flash, and it’s 100% true. you will want to be able to relive all those magical memories over again so don’t skimp on your photographer. a great wedding planner will take care of all the details so you don’t have to think about them, and the right band will turn your reception into the greatest dance party of all time.  tip within a tip: once you find one vendor that you’re really happy with ask them for recommendations about the others, great people usually like to work with other great people!

#3 HIRE TWO LEAD PHOTOGRAPHERS, NOT ONE LEAD AND A SECOND SHOOTER

Middleton Place wedding Charleston SC

your wedding is too big of a party to leave to one set of eyes alone. while the happy couple performs an amazing dance move on the floor, grandma might take a quick shot at the bar. when the ceremony starts, the mother of the bride dabs her eyes while the groom takes a deep breath. who wants to pick just ONE of those moments to save? some photographers work alone, or hire a second shooter from a rotating pool. when you hire us, you get two lead journalists covering your entire wedding. what does this mean? well, friends of the couple might go to find us, only to discover that we are right behind them already quietly photographing whatever it was they wanted us to see. we blend in, but we catch it all! we are a team: together for 13 years and married for 10. not only do we know each other down to toothpaste and netflix preferences, we know exactly how the other person is thinking during a wedding, where they will be standing, and what they will be covering. hire us and you get two artists who are free to play to their strengths – and won’t miss a thing, so you can get back to focusing on the first two tips! tip within a tip: style matters! you want to be sure you and your photographer(s) are on the same page so ask to see portfolios, and see if the images look the way you are imagining your wedding.
