how to find a photographer with which you have chemistry
1. Look at their portfolio. Aside from the composition, postprocessing, environment, etc…go straight to looking at the couple’s faces. Do their faces look comfortable?
2. Talk to the photographer!
Over the phone or in person, do you get along? Does your fiance get along with the photographer? Do they already make you feel comfortable?
They”ll be by your side all day. You’ll want to know it’s with people you’d like by your side.
3. Ask them how they make their couples feel comfortable.
4. Ask the photographer how they will capture you, not with poses they use on everyone in the same places they’ve used with everyone else, but you the way you two truly are.
Find a wedding photographer that you both love. It’ll give you the freedom on your wedding day to just play
