3 Steps To Find The Wedding Photographer Of Your Dreams

GRACE JONES

Wedding planning can be stressful and finding a photographer you like shouldn’t add to that stress. Your wedding day should be a beautiful day, free of stress so you can focus on marrying the love of your life. Below are a few helpful hints to help guide you in your search for a photographer who will fit your needs and document your wedding so you have beautiful photos for years to come!

1. KNOW YOUR BUDGET

Knowing your budget is huge and so is knowing how much importance photography holds for your wedding day. Hiring a wedding photographer is an investment, there’s no doubt about that, and it’s an important investment because your photos (or video) will be one of the only lasting reminders of your beautiful wedding day. 

Remember that a photographer’s cost directly correlates with their experience. If you are price shopping and looking for the cheapest option, you might be getting a photographer with less experience and with that you might get photos that you aren’t super thrilled with. If you are curious about how long they have been photographing weddings, just ask! Plus it’s always a great idea to look at their portfolio and read previous client reviews.

2. LOVE THEIR STYLE 

Know what style you are looking for, each photographer has a different way of going about things on wedding days and how they photograph their subjects in general. There are many different genres of photography and within those there are tons of photographers! Documentary, classic, fine art, edgy and bold. Each is just as beautiful as the rest, so find what feels right for you! Keep in mind that when you look at a photographers website, their style should be evident; if their photos are all over the place you might not be guaranteed to get the style you are looking for.

3. LIKE THEM AS A HUMAN

You are going to be spending most of your day around 2 people: your significant other and your photographer. You need to like them as a human before you can like them as a photographer. Don’t be afraid to get to know them, read their “about me” section on their website, find them on Instagram and look through their photos and see how they interact with people, and read reviews of what their previous clients have said.

After doing your research, if you think you would get along, contact them and ask to set up a meeting! During a meeting, don’t be shy about asking questions. I don’t know about most photographers, but I love when potential clients are curious and ask me questions! I promise you won’t annoy me! If after meeting with them you don’t feel like you are clicking, then start your search again (that’s easier said than done, right?).

Lauren and Adam's beautiful wedding day was held at Water's Edge in Louisville, Ohio! It's a beautiful venue surrounded by nature. Lauren and Adam's love for each other is so beautiful and pure. Their wedding was filled with so many little meaningful details to honor Lauren's mom who passed away a few months before their wedding, but she was definitely there in spirit. It was such an honor to share in their day and capture it as it unfolded in front of us.

Our Wedding // The Goodone's // Modjeska, California

GRACE JONES

632A6625.jpg

September 1, 2016 was the day we became one. Brandon and I went through many different scenarios of what we wanted to do for our wedding, but in the end the choice was clear and easy. In a sense, we eloped but had his parents and sister plus my mom there to bear witness to our union.

Prior to our actual wedding, we did a symbolic ceremony with my dad so he could "give me away". He was going through cancer treatment and was unable to fly to California for our actual wedding. (There are some photos of Ohio mixed in with the California photos - I promise California isn't that green!)

We decided on the Tucker Wildlife Sanctuary in Modjeska Canyon, CA. It’s one of the many place Brandon took me to on my first trip to California. It’s a steep hike up a hill and then a plunging drop into a beautiful canyon that lay below, filled with the leftover remains of an old river bed. 

Our plan was simple, hike into the canyon and get married just as the sun was hitting the top of the mountains surrounding us. But with all plans nothing ever goes as planned. The morning of our wedding I got a call from Brandon saying that the canyon was on fire and we need to find a new place to get married. After an hour of trying to “figure” it out. We got word that the wind was blowing the fire in another direction and that they canyon was safe...for now.

Off we headed to the Wildlife sanctuary. We decided that we wouldn’t go into the canyon just incase the wind blew and flames arouse. To the top of the hill we hiked, our families, pastor and our cheerful gang of videographers and photographers.

There on the side of a hill we got married, vows were exchanged, a kiss was given and confetti was thrown (it was biodegradable, don’t worry, I care about the environment too you know!) We had a mini reception at Brandon's parents house with some close friends and family, it was simple and lovely! 

Many people ask me, especially with being a wedding photographer, if I missed having a big wedding, and to put it simply - no, I didn’t at all, we followed are hearts and took the leap, I am thankful we did, because it was perfect in every sense of the word. I think it’s important to honor your family, but in the end it’s your wedding day and you need to follow your heart and soul. Like I said before, I am so happy we did what we did. It was stress free (well, almost, fire … you know) full of love, and laughter.

My dress was made my the loveliest seamstress in Cambodia! I picked the fabric and drew a picture of what I wanted and she made it come to life! The floral crown was made by my mom the morning of our wedding from clippings of pepper tree out of Brandon's parents yard! 

Wedding Video By: Memo Collective // Abe and Rachel, the two behind the video are the most amazing humans! I am so thankful our paths crossed a few years ago and that they were able to help retell the story of our day for our families and friends who weren’t there at the wedding itself!

Photography By: Jenna Powers Photography // She’s my BEST FRIEND! It was so much fun having her there not only has a photographer but also as my honorary bridesmaid. She’s a total babe and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else to document our day for us!
