Advice from some of the best wedding photographers in Atlanta

We asked some of the best wedding photographers in Atlanta for one piece of advice they wish every couple knew before their wedding:

“Be present in each moment, because it is fleeting. If you can truly place the attention of your heart and head on the moment at hand, that will show in your images.”

“Don’t sweat the small stuff. If your bouquet isn’t exactly how you envisioned it, but it’s still beautiful, don’t worry about it. If it’s raining, don’t worry about it. In the end, all that really matters is that you are getting married to the person you love.”

“Mistakes are going to happen, everything will not go as planned, BUT it will still be a joyful occasion and a day you will remember for the rest of your life.”

“Love the wedding you’re having. I know that sounds a bit strange, but people spend so much time planning and visualizing their wedding that they can only see the wedding they had in their mind and sometimes miss the actual day out of worry and anxiety that it’s not exactly as they imagined. Take rain, for instance. If it rains, then that’s a part of your day. It may not be what you wanted or imagined, but I’ve seen brides spend half their wedding day dismayed over the rain. The irony is their disappointment was a bigger drag on the day than the rain…”

– Atlanta Wedding Photographer Cayce from Cayce Callaway Photography

“My biggest piece of advice is to budget enough at least an hour (or more) between the ceremony and reception for pictures. Plan a cocktail hour with hors-d’oeuvre to keep guests happy while family, wedding party and bride/groom pictures are being taken.”

– Atlanta Wedding Photographer Debbie from Debbie Neff Photography

“Find a photographer whose style matches what you like. Look around to find the images that really resonate with you. Then meet with them and make sure your personalities mesh and you can hang with them on the most important, fun, special day of your life!”

– Atlanta Wedding Photographer Janet from Janet Howard Studio
