Recently our owner at Complete Weddings + Events, Kevin Paladino, was given the opportunity to be interviewed by WeddingVenture.com. In this wedding photography Q&A, Kevin was asked a series of questions all based around being a resource for brides as they build knowledge and educate themselves in the pursuit of selecting a photographer to capture their wedding.
What is the criteria to follow when hiring a wedding photographer?
A relational connection is key as you strive to select a photographer. Areas to consider in your selection process:
Review history? (Across multiple platforms)
What’s included in packages/pricing?
Is a signature release included?
What is the turnaround time frame?
Do they have an on-call or back up plan?
What planning tools do they provide in helping couples articulate their expectations?
How does the weather affect wedding photography?
Just as a rainy or overcast day affects us in normal every-day life, so does it on wedding days. But it doesn’t have to ruin the day. Overcast days provide unique and softer lighting conditions that make for some amazing photos. I prefer sunset light when shooting outdoor photography. And the fall season is my favorite to capture some amazing photos.
