Knowing Your Wedding Photographer a Little Better

by | Jan 8, 2016 | Event Planning


You put a lot of trust in the person you hire to shoot your wedding, but many couples actually know very little about these individuals, what they go through, how they think, and what all goes into preparing for their wedding shoot.  Here is a sneak peek into the lives of wedding photographers in MD. Having good photography skills is of course essential but a professional photographer will also have the following skills:

*  Have a great personality and the ability to develop a rapport with people that attend the wedding. They should also be friendly and happy.
*  Be able to think quickly on their feet when things go wrong and to overcome any difficulties.
A good photographer should be able to make fast decisions and to convince others to follow their lead.

It is also very helpful to wedding photographers to give a list of shots you would like to have at the wedding. Most wedding photographers make their own list like the following, but having a personalized list from the bride and groom is also very helpful:
