That is funny. Unfortunately a lot of people can’t tell the difference.

I love that!!! It is so true, in wedding photography experience is everything.  Wedding photography goes way beyond just knowing how to take a pretty picture with your camera set on program.  It’s knowing how to defuse and handle difficult and emotional situations with ease.  It’s knowing how to direct your subjects so they are comfortable and look their most flattering.  It’s knowing that you have two of every peice of equipment so if something brakes on the job you don’t miss that important shot.  It breaks my heart to hear the disapointment in some couples who choose to save some money by having their friend/cousin/uncle shoot it only to have a small handful of good snapshots from a day they spend so much time and money planning.  These are your memories, it’s what you are going to go back to time and again through the rest of your life.

sooooo true! Photography is the biggest thing I’m excited for. Years later, after our wedding has come and gone, we will still have those photos. I can’t wait to capture all those moments.

I completelly agree…and have one more to share Wink

As one of my friend’s well recognized photographer said

“In today’s market, there are many “photographers” to select from. so be aware that quality and service will vary even more than price. The “good deal” you get on on photography will be forgotten long before the disappointment wears off. A camera doesn’t make someone a photographer any more than my authentic team jersey makes me an athlete. Remember also that when you buy art, it’s for how it makes you feel, and not for the cost of the supplies to make it. A million dollar Picasso may only have a few dollars worth of paint and canvas. Of all your wedding day investments, only two last a lifetime, your ring and your photography.”

Best way to see if the photographer you like is really qualified to shoot!

The best thing to do when you are on a consultation with the photographer -I would recommend that you randomly pick one image you like from his/ wedding portfolio and ask him to see ALL of the images from that wedding ๐Ÿ˜€ …in case he will start using excuses as “well…I shoot so many weddings it would take a long time to find it/pull it out ๐Ÿ™ “…etc..etc… you know right away there is something wrong! I normally show portfolio (on 42” LCD connected to my computer) of about 300-500 best wedding images I ever took and I ask the Bride to pick any of the image she like-than I pull out that particular wedding and I show to my bride to be all of the images I shoot ๐Ÿ˜€ This is the ONLY way you can see if the photographer qualify to call herself/himself a “photographer”

Wish you best of luck ๐Ÿ˜€

PS: Here is a sample of making “click” the right moment! I did this shot 5 years ago on wedding in Europe!
