One major goal in my photography career is to be published, so imagine my excitement when last January I was chosen to weigh in on the important decision of how to pick your wedding photographer for the Borrowed & Blue Ann Arbor Weddings blog. I think that meeting with your photographer for an in-person consultation is one of the most important things you can do before deciding who to hire. When you meet them you will get a sense of who they are and whether or not your personalities mesh well. You have the chance to ask any questions about their process while getting to laugh over a cup of coffee or tea. Lastly, during your meeting this is a great chance to hold samples of their beautiful albums and other products that they offer so you can get a feel of how they will look in your home.
If you’re unable to meet in-person with your photographer before you hire them, then an engagement session is a great way to connect with your them before the wedding and get a feel for their personality. I adore when couples ask me to photograph their engagement session because I get to see how they interact together and their love for each other really shines through. It’s a fun way get to know them, but also get some relaxed images before the big day. Plus, it lets me conceptualize poses and images that will truly make their wedding day something that reflects the couple.
I’m always looking to better my craft and grow as a photographer, being recognized by other publications will help get me to that next level, so keep an eye out for the next time Natalie Mae Photography is featured.
