WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS TO AVOID

Posted by Mike Voss on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, In : wedding photography 
I don't know Alex Garcia of the Chicago Tribune. We've met a 
couple times, but I can't imagine anyone could have explained any better
the photographers you want to avoid than he does here on his blog:

Assignment Chicago

If you're a bride, a groom, a parent, or even a photographer
you should read this.

How much time will you spend at our wedding?

Posted by Mike Voss on Monday, April 16, 2012, In : wedding photography 

That depends on your wedding and your budget. Many couples want
photos before the ceremony – the bride dressing, the men getting ready,
first look etc. Some couples opt to have formal portraits done before the
ceremony and sometimes the groups with the bridal party, family and friends
are done immediately after the ceremony at the church and/or other locations.
Many photographers prefer to finish with the reception after the cake is cut, the
first dance has been danced and the bouquet and g...

How long will it take to get our proofs, our album?

Posted by Mike Voss on Saturday, March 3, 2012, In : wedding photography 

This will vary from photographer to photographer and taking a
little longer is not necessarily a bad thing. You want your proofs
and final order(s) to be done right. Generally you’re looking at
weeks, maybe 6 weeks, to get your proofs. Most photographers
will tell you that getting your album or book depends on you and
when you place your order. Brides and Grooms get busy after the
wedding and sometimes getting an order placed may require calls
from the photographer or studio. Some studios p...

Do we need a second photographer?

Posted by Mike Voss on Saturday, February 18, 2012, In : wedding photography 

Some photographers recommend a second photographer. Often the need
depends on the size of your wedding and on the number of guests. At some
weddings one photographer will concentrate on formal posed photos while a
second photographer will function as a photojournalist, capturing the day as it
unfolds. If that appeals to you go for it. Some studios include a second photographer
or an assistant in their package prices.

If you’re being charged extra for a second photographer be sure to ask a...

What technical qualities should we look for in sample wedding photos?

Posted by Mike Voss on Sunday, February 12, 2012, In : wedding photography 

Light is the most important aspect of any photograph, both the quantity
and quality of the light which should appear natural and flattering,
whether it’s available light or created with flash. Incorrect use of on-camera
flash flattens facial features and creates harsh shadows. A professional
should not create photos with red eye under any circumstances.

The colors should look natural and be rich in tone. Black and white images
should contain rich grays and detail in both the darkest and l...

Why is wedding photography so expensive?

Posted by Mike Voss on Friday, February 10, 2012, In : wedding photography 

It can cost $20,000 to outfit a professional photographer. There are also costs
you can’t see like computers, software and insurance. You want to be
absolutely certain the photographer you hire has high quality equipment
and back up equipment. You are paying for expertise which would be hard to
put a price tag on.

Many couples underestimate the cost of photography. It’s not unusual to
spend ten to thirty percent of the entire wedding budget on photography when
it’s all said and done....

The first question to ask a wedding photographer

Posted by Mike voss on Friday, September 30, 2011, In : wedding photography 
 

Will you be photographing our wedding or will it be someone else?


Because weddings are booked in advance and photographers move around
(and change careers) like everyone else these days, it's not unusual for a
photographer to move on by the time your wedding day rolls around if you're
dealing with a large studio.

There's not much you can do to prevent this other than follow up by asking
when you can meet the photographer who will actually be photographing
your wedding. You should insi...
