Old Capitol WeddingOld Capitol Wedding Once you have narrowed down your selections of photographers to the ones whose photographic style fits your wedding dreams, it is important to select a photographer whose personality matches yours.  You want to work with someone with whom you get along.  You will be spending many hours on one of the most important day of your lives with this person.  They will be by your side during the laughter, happy tears, and quiet moments on your wedding day.  You want to feel comfortable with them.  If you feel at ease with your photographer, you will look more relaxed and natural while in front of their lens.

It is important to schedule a consultation with you potential photographer; whether in person, on the phone, or via Skype.  You want to be sure you have a great connection and begin building a relationship with them.  If you want an opportunity to work with them before finalizing your decision to hire them for your wedding day, consider doing and engagement session with their studio.  Many photographers include this complimentary in their wedding packages, and will likely forward whatever you pay for your session on to your wedding package balance if you choose to continue with their studio.

Engagement sessions are a wonderful opportunity to get to know how you work together and begin to build your relationship with your photographer.  Not only does this allow you to become more comfortable with your photographer which will help you be more relaxed and natural on your wedding day, it allows your photographer to get to know you and your relationship.  You want someone who will put you at ease, bring out your natural smile, and show your love for each other in a genuine way.  If you've found a photographer you love, but aren't 100% sure you're ready to book, consider hiring them for your engagement session.
