When is Wedding Season?
In the United States, wedding season is in full swing between May and October. According to TheKnot.com’s annual survey, October 7th was last year's most popular wedding date, but August 18th takes the cake for 2018.
Choosing a Wedding Photographer
Besides choosing the perfect date, location, and whittling down the guestlist, the hardest challenge is finding a quality wedding photographer - one that matches your unique personality and wedding style. A good wedding photographer is going to do whatever it takes to get the best shots and will know exactly which moments will still thrill on your 50th wedding anniversary. There’s no room for artistic ego or a combative personality. Top tip? Choose a wedding photographer that comes highly recommended by a friend you trust!
Do Smartphones Ruin Wedding Photographs?
Nowadays with smartphones, everyone can be a wedding photographer, ready to shoot the ceremony from their own unique perspective. But sometimes, all those little bright screens and selfie-sticks can get in the way. They can potentially ruin a natural shot of the walk down the aisle or the first post-vow kiss.
One of our favorite wedding photographers, Andrea Shettler (www.shetsy.photo), even wrote an article for us with some tips on wedding smartphone etiquette.
On the other hand...having a bunch of eager amateur photographers in the audience also gives you the opportunity to capture more candid moments of the celebration, while the wedding photographer focuses his or her attention on the bride and groom. Your guests might snap unscripted moments of old friends chatting by fish pond, kids in cute suits climbing trees, or beautiful shots of the floral arrangements and pre-devoured cuisine.
