Are you getting married in Sonora? Who will be your Sonora wedding photographer?

Here is a list of six things that you should consider when looking to invest in a Sonora wedding photographer.

//1 Personality

When selecting a Sonora wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all day on the beginnings of a new chapter in your life, your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way. Your Sonora wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your engagement session and post-wedding photography and albums.

//2 Price

While price is always a factor when selecting your Sonora wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It always turns out to be a living nightmare and a headache in the end. What you want to look for is to have a good experience with your Sonora wedding photographer. Setting up an appointment to meet with your Sonora wedding photographer and see if you feel comfortable with them and trust that they well document your day in a beautiful way while trying to make it as stress free as possible. When it’s all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.

//3 Wedding Albums

What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your Sonora wedding. When selecting a Sonora wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your Sonora wedding photographer include: 1) How many pages come in the wedding album? 2) How many images will be in the wedding album? 3) What leather options are available for my wedding album?

//4 Fusion Video

What is fusion video? Fusion Video is something every Sonora wedding photographer should include with every wedding photographer’s collection that they offer. But what is a fusion video? It is a slide show that combines wedding photography and wedding videography from your wedding photographer documenting your wedding day. Fusion videos just add that little extra touch without over doing it. It is one of the best ways to share your wedding day with all of your friends and family on your social media websites. What if you have some friends and family that don’t have a social media site? Your Sonora wedding photographer should provide you with the option of ordering a hard copy on a CD to share your wedding day with those whom are not on the web.

//5 Coverage

Something often overlooked when selecting a Sonora wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your Sonora wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 8-10 hours. Be careful here. Some Sonora wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.

//6 Number of Wedding Photographers

How many Sonora wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to be focused on capturing more of those candid moments. With two Sonora wedding photographers covering your event, we find that it will tell the best story about your wedding day, that all your wedding photography needs can be best met all while ensuring nothing will get miss on your big wedding day.
