I know I like more of a “photojournalistic” style than traditional wedding. Sure, there will be the posed shots of the families and everything, but I really like fun and creative pictures. Cool color lays and/or framing can take a standard picture from nice to WOW – THAT’S COOL!
- I want the photographer to be there pretty much all day. I love the photos of the bride getting ready with her bridesmaids. And getting dressed. And doing her makeup. And having her necklace put on her.
- Digital negatives and copyright – I want it. Being such a picture person, I want to be able to put the pictures on my computer. And print/order copies of them whenever I want. Getting tired of that framed photo of the reception, oh look, here is another one to replace it. Then I can also make the picture books how I want them. damn type-A personality 🙂
- Do you really need two photographers? Do they really get two different stories from the wedding, or do you just end up with a lot of dupe photos?
- Packages that come with photobooks/large framed pictures. Do they really end up saving you money to buy the package? Or are you better off getting things done separately?
Any advice on negotiating with photographers and selecting packages?
