Are you getting married in Pasadena or Los Angeles? Who will be your wedding photographer? Do you live in Pasadena and want to stay local for your family portraits?
Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for a Pasadena wedding and portrait photographer.
When selecting a Pasadena 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 your wedding day. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.
Your Pasadena 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.
When selecting your Pasadena portrait photographer you want to select someone that you feel comfortable with for your Pasadena portrait session. You want to be able to relax and be yourself.
While price is always a factor when selecting your Pasadena wedding and portrait photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. All too often we hear horror stories from brides and families who made a decision for their wedding and portrait photography based purely on price. It turns out to be foolish in the end. When its all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day, and your family portrait will be treasures for generation to come.
3. Wedding Albums and Wall Portraits
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 Pasadena wedding.
When selecting a Pasadena 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 Pasadena wedding photographer 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?
When selecting your portrait photographer do you just want a CD that you will forget about and never use, or do you want a beautiful wall portrait that your friends will admire on your walls?
Something often overlooked when selecting a Pasadena wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your Pasadena 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 Pasadena 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.
5. Number of wedding photographers
How many Pasadena 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 have coverage going on at the same time.
We find that by having two wedding photographers at your event, your wedding photography needs can best be met, all while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day.
Is your Pasadena wedding and portrait photographer dedicated to creating art for you? And are they dedicated to treating you like a friend. This is important to know. Yes, we are running a business, but we take your needs into consideration at all times throughout the Pasadena wedding and portrait process.
