Are you getting married in bay area? Who will be your San Francisco wedding photographer?

Here is a list of some of the things you should consider when looking for a  wedding photographer.


When selecting a  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 friends 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 San Francisco 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 include your engagement session and post wedding photograph and albums.


While price is always a factor when selecting your  wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters. High quality and enjoyable experience with the photography team will make big difference on your wedding day.  All too often we hear horrible stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price. It turns out to be a disaster in the end. With all this being said,  your wedding pics will be the only things to be left for your wedding day.


Something often overlooked when selecting a  wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your  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 somewhere between 8  to 10 hours.

Be careful here. Some  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.


How many  wedding photographers will be there on your wedding day? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer can focus 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  and nothing gets missed from your big day.

What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer? Most people prefer 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   wedding.

When selecting a  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  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?
