Theknot.com Love this website. Of course, we advertise with The Knot but every so often, we also go on the website and check out some of the articles. One of the best articles that I believe every engaged couple needs to read is this one. Every last point on this list is extremely true (except for possibly the last two. Photo booths are fabulous, yes, but not neccessary. And setting up a wedding shoot the day after? Sounds like a bigger hassle, but hey, we're just the photographers. . .) However, everything from choosing a wedding photography style to getting engagement pictures taken is a MUST.
Let's face it, there are LOTS of wedding photographers out there, and to be quite honest, most out there are very good and very similar. Really, it all comes down to meeting up with the photographer and finding the one you "click" with. We've been known to say that we don't accept every client that comes our way because we can tell at the consultation whether we'd be a good match or not. If you want lots and lots of posed, very traditional style pictures. . . then we might not be the best photographers for you. If you want lots of candid, photo-journalistic, off-the-beaten path photographs-- if you dig black & white, cool angles, and casual, soft, romantic moments, then we're for you. And that's our philosophy here at Artistic Imagery.
