Advice from some of the best photographers in Austin

We asked some of the best wedding photographers in Austin what couples often initially overlook when it comes to wedding photography:

“That the person they hire is someone they’ll spend more than a dozen hours dealing with outside of the wedding. Make sure you pick someone you like and get along with!”

“Many brides are attracted to trendy photography styles that will not age well after 25+ years. Always make sure you get standard edited full-color images.”

“Lots of couples have no idea that having an unplugged wedding is a huge asset on their wedding day. You’ll guarantee that your wedding images will come out free of phones and technology. Your guests can actually be present during the most important part of your lives.”

“When considering the photos they want, especially when it comes to group photos, some couples don’t take into account how the experience of the day will be for them. A wedding day should be meaningful and fun, and spending hours in a “photo shoot” can take away from that experience. It’s a balancing act! I advise spending no more than an hour or so on posed portraits so the couple can really enjoy their day.”

“Timing and lighting. Many couples book gorgeous venues for their winter month weddings but forget that the sun sets at 5:15 pm and their 6 pm ceremony will be pitch black. The reverse is also true. When you see a venue at sunset in the cooler months but you are getting married at 6 pm in June…..know it’ll be bright, harsh sun and sweltering.”

“I think the biggest thing that gets overlooked is what time the sun sets in relation to your ceremony. Many couples want that storybook sunset ceremony, however, if the sun is setting during your vows, that leaves little sunlight left for those magical portrait photos that everyone covets. If that’s your dream, then my suggestion would be to have a first glance moment prior to the ceremony so that we can take care of portraits beforehand.”
