Photography & Videography

Capture the special memories of your day through photography and video. Decide your style, candid and spontaneous or posed and portrait. Photographers can make photos look dramatic or soft and dreamy. The photographer should ask you many questions about what and how you want to capture your day.

  • How do you describe your working style?
  • How will you be dressed?
  • Will you have an assistant?

  • Do you do color and black and white?
  • Since cameras break, be sure to ask whether the photographer will have backup equipment.
