Our friend and colleague (and uber talented), photographer Kati Rosado, recently wrote an informative blog post on the things every couple should know when searching for their wedding photographer. Given that she has a unique perspective, we thought we would share her insight with you here today...

1. Decide what style of photography you like. You may be perusing Instagram and see that there are SO many different types of wedding photography. I shy away from putting labels on different styles, but you need to review various types and decide which one makes you feel the happiest. I, for example, am a fine art wedding photographer. To dive into this topic would be a whole blog post (or multi-volume collection of books), but essentially we usually photograph with primarily film and some of us, like myself, also shoot digital. If this floats your boat- awesome! If not, that is totally okay and I am not offended one bit. If you want a more “dark and moody” style photographer, great! Do what makes you happy. But the first step in choosing a photographer is deciding which style you like best.
2. Be future minded when it comes to your wedding photos. What is trendy now may get old in just a few years. For me personally, it is a goal of mine to make my images “timeless.” Yes of course they have a modern flair, but I try not do any thing that will date the images and make my clients regret hiring me in 10 years. I want you to happy with your wedding photos, now, tomorrow, and forever.
