Make sure to meet the location and browse around and ask questions to see if they fit your visual as well as budget.
- Photographer- We can stress enough how important it is to have an experienced, creative photographer. Don’t depend on family and friends to capture your day. Treat them as the guest you invited them to be. Let the individual or team you hired tell your story. Inquiry with as many or as few as you would like and ask questions. Look at their work and set a meeting if time permits. Therefore you can see touch and feel their products. Never go off price! Go off of quality, style and experience.

Price should never be the main factor on booking these professionals. Remember quality over quantity any day. There is a reason most professionals come at a higher price than the rest. The number one reason is value just because they love what they do and you will see it in all that they do to bring your vision to life.
