Introduction

Hey there! Planning to pop the big question? That's awesome! You'll want those memories captured just right. So, let's talk about finding the perfect photographer to freeze that magical moment in time. No stress, just some friendly tips to guide you.

1. What's Your Style?

  • Personal Taste: Think about what type of photos make your heart skip a beat. Do you love those natural, in-the-moment shots, or are you all about that polished, magazine look? Dig around some photo portfolios to get a feel for what you like.

2. Dig Around for Gems

  • Start Searching: Hop onto Instagram, wedding blogs, or just ask around. Personal recommendations are gold – they come with trust built-in.
  • Word of Mouth: Got a friend who recently got engaged? Ask them who they hired!

3. Portfolio Peek

  • Look Closely: Check out the photographer's previous work. Are their photos telling a story? Do they capture those little, emotional moments? Make sure their style clicks with yours.
