The first step for success is to know what style of photography is right for you. Consider what approach you and your partner prefer: traditional or contemporary? Candid or more choreographed? You can also think about different aesthetics like black-and-white, light and airy, or moody and dramatic photographs.
Making a mood-board and deciding on a color scheme that matches your bridal garments, bouquet, and venue can also be useful. Once ready, you can scope out different photographers and let them know your preferences so that your wedding photos can be cherished for a lifetime.
