Weddings bring everyone involved to a highly emotional state that is often filled with stress and worry. To cut through some of that and bring a little transparency to the situation, here are four things that your Charleston wedding photographer wish you knew (but might not actually tell you).
#1 – We do this every day.
Yes, this is a monumental moment in your life but you should know that I attend and photograph weddings nearly every weekend of the year. When you ask me a question, I’m answering with not only my general thoughts on the topic but my honest opinion based on years of experience that will help make your day exactly how you want it.
#2 – A win for you is a win for me.
My business depends on creating gorgeous images that you and hopefully all of your friends and my potential clients will love. The fact is that when your photos turn out amazing, it means that I’ve done my job well. I never force my clients to do anything, always ask them what they want, and I don’t want to interfere with anything you have planned for your wedding day, but I may make soft recommendations on things that will take your images to the next level. Trust me. 🙂
#3 – Pease relax.
This is the most important tip of all. You never know how quickly time can fly by until you’re the bride at your own wedding. Months and even years of planning all come down to an event that flies by in just a few hours. If you can do one thing it’s to relax and enjoy everything that you’ve planned. Know that your vendors all want your day to be amazing and will do everything in their power to make that happen.
