5 ways to great Marietta Wedding Photography



alt=-mariettaweddingphotographers-28This past week during a consultation our now clients asked a great question; “Wedding Photography is so important, how can I be sure we get what we want”?

Our answer to them was that great Marietta wedding photography is a lot like following a good recipe, you can put all the ingredients in place, in the correct order, in your environment and while it will not guarantee “Chef” results, you are much further along than you would be if you simply took a shot in the dark or, God forbid, or just guessed!

For great Marietta wedding photography you simply have to follow a few guidelines or, in this case, a good recipe…

1) To start, visit the Professional Photographers of America. You can find them at www.ppa.com. This is the, in our opinion, single best place to start to look for professional photography.

Once at the site you will see search for a photographer. Using the advanced search let’s you break the search down further into the various types of photography, wedding, portrait, maternity etc…We would also make the recommendation that you check the show only certified professional photographers. This further filters the returns to see those ONLY who have passed the rigorous test , maintain educational credits etc to become full Certified Professional Photographers.


2) Have a vision for your Marietta wedding photography?. You should already have an idea about how the various photographers shoot and what speaks to your emotions . Various Marietta wedding photographers will have a unique perspective , view and style that they will use to document your day. Some may be very hands off and wanting to capture the majority of your day as it unfolds without directing it too much or involving themselves too deeply in the focus of the day. If you do not have a vision or are pulled between different looks, the best thing you can do is to craft this with your Marietta wedding photographer to bring your unique vision to life.


3) The chemistry counts. How do you get along with your Marietta wedding photographers? How do you like the person , their demeanor, their style, how they see the wedding unfold, what they emphasize and last but not least, how are their people skills? If your party is very laid back a wedding photographer who is much more directorial may clash with the idea you have for the day…Likewise someone very hands off with a rowdy crowd that disperses quickly may need some direction and managing…


4) Along with the above points, how much trust do you have in your Marietta wedding photographers? Is that relationship sound and you both know what is important and what you want captured? Did you take the approach that your faith is such in your Marietta wedding photographers that you know you will love what they capture..?

5) Take it all in. A good Marietta Wedding Photographer will often do many tasks and jobs outside their original scope. If you have taken care of points 1 through 4 you just may have some folks as committed to your successful Marietta Wedding Photography as you are…and if you are looking to be sure like our most recent clients…these 5 suggestions just may get you the Marietta Wedding Photography you love!

Everything is fabulous…He or she is the love of your life…

Yet often people who find themselves planning a 2nd marriage have a tendency to believe they somehow need to do, spend, dream and have less!

If you are fortunate enough to have gotten it right and you really are with your one true and only…stop thinking your wedding deserves less !!!

We once had a couple come in for a consultation…all the groom kept repeating was “it wasn’t his first rodeo”…and it happened pretty much every time we discussed packages and cost….at one point his bride turned to him and said…”this may not be your first rodeo…but if you keep saying that you won’t survive the ride”!

Should you think about 2nd wedding photography?

Do you need 2nd wedding photography?

The point being after we did the wedding the groom was a total convert…he believed what we did was art…and later said how much it meant to him that his bride was captured so beautifully and in such tender moments…

You don’t deserve less because you are not in your 20’s anymore, or because it is not your first wedding…so here is an idea…

Why not celebrate and give your wedding , and that love of your life, the attention and value it deserves…

Of course every couple will not put an emphasis on their photography, but there is zero reason to not value it because “it isn’t your first rodeo”..

We believe love is timeless…it shows up whether you are in your teens, your 20’s, your 50’s or your 80’s…and how you approach and shoot it is not that different than any other wedding…make people comfortable…craft friendships with trust….put people in situations where the “real me” will show up…as well as the “real relationship” between them…in short…see your soul….

Do you need 2nd wedding photography?

The answer is a resounding YES!
