Advice from some of the best photographers in Charlotte

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

“How long the different parts of the day will take. It’s unfair to expect someone who isn’t a wedding or event planner to plan a wedding without help. I work with each of my clients (both in person and on the phone) to help them put together a timeline that allows them to get all the photos that are important to them and have enough time that they don’t ever feel rushed or stressed.”

“Most couples overlook enough time for their wedding day coverage. Having a realistic idea of the time needed to get the photos they want is the most common mistake. An experienced photographer can help you take a close look at your timeline and give you insight to aspects you may not have even considered.”

“Most couples are one-time buyers when it comes to wedding photography so they very often have little to no idea of what it entails. All they’ve seen are photos on Instagram or Pinterest so often they can be surprised by the upfront cost and by the amount of work that actually goes into photographing a wedding.”

“I think some may overlook associated costs and value. There is likely a very specific reason some photographers will give you an amazing price compared others. Often that comes down to true experience and technical expertise. It’s incredibly important to do your due diligence and hire someone who not only has a great portfolio, but who is able to demonstrate to you that they are a professional photographer, and not someone who recently picked up a DSLR and wants to photograph the most important day of your life. This is not a part of your wedding day that should be left to chance.”

“In the current age of digital photography and digital imagery, I have found (even in my personal life!) that it is tempting to overlook or even just procrastinate planning for how and where your images will be displayed. It is a shame to see couples with a beautiful set of digital files and no plans or investment for those images to be displayed, shared, and enjoyed. In 2014, Corrie and I made the choice to include complimentary post-wedding viewing sessions & print consults for all of our clients. With all of the amazing (and ever growing!) print options available, we know that couples can easily become overwhelmed and stuck on making decisions. Our company assists with professional guidance to ensure our couples are confident in all their printing & display decisions. We have put together many beautiful albums, print boxes, and wall displays (that’s right, we will come to your home and physically install your gallery wall for you!) for many delighted clients.”

“Not consulting your photographer on different aspects of your day! It is actually incredibly helpful and will make your images so much better if you get your photographer’s advice and opinion on a lot of things. Wondering if you really need to hire a coordinator? Ask your photographer. Not sure what time to start your winter, outdoor ceremony AND have daylight for photos afterward? Ask your photographer. They can offer a wealth of advice based on firsthand experience.”

“Your photographer is the one person that you are spending the entire day with. The last thing you want to feel is annoyed or stressed on your wedding day because you don’t connect with your photographer. I think it’s important to meet with your photographer so that you can make sure your personalities click and that you’re on the same page in terms of style, etc.”
