The Photographer

Written by Decadent Details Assistant, Stephany LaCruz

Hello Our Beautiful Readers!

We have a fun topic today which in our opinion is the most important aspect of a wedding, the photographer! It is really important to find a photographer whose style you like and knows exactly what you yourself are looking for in your wedding pictures. Today we will be talking about some things to look for in your photographer and some important questions to ask. So let’s dig in shall we?


Make sure when you’re finding a photographer, you look at many photographers. Don’t just look at one and fall in love, make sure there isn’t someone else with a style that suits what your looking for better. Also, unless they themselves are actual wedding photographers, don’t let any family members be your official photographer. The pictures won’t come out as great as a professional photographer. Just because you have a nice camera and Photoshop does not make you a photographer, so please keep that in mind! Once you have narrowed it down to two or three photographers you like, that’s when you will meet with them. When you meet with them, make sure to ask a lot of questions!


When you meet with the photographers, make sure to bring a list of shots you want taken. Whether you want all staged or all candid, or a mix of both, make sure you let them know your preference. Some photographers are better with candid while others are better with staged photos. Something else to ask is if they will be the only person or bringing in an assistant. This would be helpful so they can capture the moment you both see each other for the first time when you are walking down the aisle. This way a beautiful moment the photographer missed is a moment the assistant was able to capture. Also be sure to ask them how you will receive your pictures, if you will be given a high resolution DVD or if it will be regular pictures. One last thing, taking pictures can be a little nerve wracking on such a big day because you want the picture to come out looking beautiful. Be sure to ask how the photographer keeps you guys feeling calm and just making it fun for the both of you and the whole bridal party.


No matter whom you pick for you big day, just make sure they work for the style of pictures you are looking for. Pictures capture the memories of your day so they want to make sure you love them!  We would love to assist you in finding the perfect photographer to capture your Wedding Day! 

Until next week our Beautiful readers!
