Ahh! Springtime on Colorado! The birds are chirping, the trees are blooming, the sun is shining and the snow and chilly weather seem to be coming to an end soon (although you never know when another snowstorm will sneak in). Summer will be here before you know it! And that means a busy wedding season in Colorado. Are you getting married this year? Do you have all of your wedding planning completed? Or are you just getting started?

 

Colorado is an amazing location for weddings. Both local and destination weddings fill up every weekend in our beautiful state. From Denver to Boulder, to the high country and Eastern plains, stunning Colorado summer and fall weddings are being planned right now. Your wedding day is one of the biggest events of your life. You want it to be perfect! There are so many decisions to make: a dress, the venue, your wedding planner, the flowers, guest list and food. In the end, all these details will come together to make the perfect day. Your wedding day! And it will be amazing! And you’ll want to preserve that day forever. This is why carefully choosing your wedding gown is such an important decision. Everyone has a camera these days, but to be a wedding photographer takes experience, knowledge, patience, creativity and artistry, as well as a complete set of professional equipment.

 

So how do you choose your wedding photographer? First thing you want to do is get an idea of what your budget is for your wedding photography. Remember, as with most things, you get what you pay for. Visit some photographers’ websites and Social Media pages. Check out their different styles, read their reviews and raves. Wedding photography is an art form, and you want to find one that will express your day in your way. Look at their editing styles. Do they offer black and whites? Or do you prefer all color? Do you prefer an edgy artistic approach? Or a softer dreamy style? Maybe you like a little of both? Do you like journalistic coverage? Do they focus enough on the details? Do you want formal portraits?Find some photographers that you like, and then schedule phone or in person consultations with them. Ask lots of questions. How many hours of coverage will you have? Is there a travel fee to come to the high country? When discussing price, find out exactly what you get for that price. Do they offer a package that fits your needs? Will there be a wedding album? Do they use a professional lab for your prints? Make sure the photographer you choose uses professional camera equipment and plans to have an assistant or second shooter for your big day. This will ensure all the very special moments of your day are covered properly, so you have the images you will cherish for the rest of your life.

 

Get to know your photographer. Booking your engagement session with them is a great way for you and your photographer to get to know each other and connect on a personal level. This person will be with you all day, on the best day of your life. You want to be sure you work well together. Once you have chosen your photographer, make sure he or she has a contract agreement with you, to hold your wedding date and clarify the payment agreement and wedding package you choose.  The contract protects both you and the photographer. Once you have booked your wedding date with your photographer, you can breathe easy knowing all these decisions and special details of your perfect day, will be preserved in beautiful photographs, for you to enjoy for years to come.
