The Full How-To Guide Goes Over The Following Points:

– Delivery Details
Since many of you are wondering how to choose a wedding photographer and what exactly to look for when hiring one, Gia decided to share some of her points of view and advice. When it comes to planning your wedding, you have so many things that need to be taken care of, and so many expenses, that you tend to look at the price tag instead of looking to the quality of the services needed for the big day. Unfortunately, that happens when choosing a wedding photographer also, but it can be avoided with a few simple steps.
1. Preparation: from the moment a contract is signed, Gia starts the preparations for the wedding, and as we all know, preparation is key in every project. A few months before the wedding, she gets in touch with the bride and groom to set up the engagement session. That needs to get finished in order to have photos for save the date, invitations or anything else needed. A couple of weeks before the wedding she double checks the information for times and locations for ceremony, reception and wedding party photos. Then, the driving distances between home and locations for the wedding get timed, to make sure enough time is allowed between each venue.
Her style of photography is mixed between photojournalistic and traditional. Although most couples these days like the “reportage” photography, family and friends are more used to the traditional, posed type. Because of this she does both and everyone is content. She tries to deliver more than asked for, therefore she arrives at the bride’s house earlier to make sure there is enough time to photograph all the important details such as flowers, invitations, rings and wedding dress. Once at the ceremony location, she photographs the groom and his groomsmen. The ceremony will be covered from every possible angle, covering bride being walked down the aisle and groom waiting for her, along with the rituals of the ceremony. Once that’s finished, the leaving shots get done as well as posed shots in front of ceremony location with the family. From there, everyone goes to the wedding party locations, that have been previously chosen by the couple and all permits have been taken care of. When entering the reception area, she focuses on the guests arriving and getting shots of everyone enjoying the cocktail hour, while the bride and groom get ready for their introduction. Throughout the reception, she always makes sure that there is at least one photo of every person there, and photos of the bride and groom interacting with their guests and dancing. Once the wedding is over, the real work starts.
2. Post Production: It is her personal belief that every photo delivered has to be the absolute best. She uses only digital cameras and equipment, all Canon, always having back-ups in case of emergency, therefore the post-production has to be done accordingly. Once all images get in the computer, they all get edited for best printing quality, working on contrast, luminosity and color. The files that the couple gets, just a few weeks after the wedding, are always digital and in high resolution, on a USB along with the copyrights. About 150 photos will be put on line in the client gallery so that friends and family can see them and download them for free, if so desired. Depending on the package chosen the couple, the wedding album gets to be worked on together with the photographer to ensure total satisfaction.
3. Delivery: When choosing your wedding photographer make sure you read the reviews, look at her/his portfolio, before looking at the price. And do not let yourself influenced by it. Think about it this way: your wedding day is one of the most important days in your life. The photographs, albums and these memories will follow you for the rest of your life and maybe you will leave them behind to be admired by your grand-grandchildren. Pay attention to quality, to what the photographer has to offer as a professional, but also to his vibe as a person. You will be spending at least one day with that person guiding you and preparing the frames for certain shots. You need someone you can trust, someone patient, who knows what he/she is doing, and positive in case of stressing moments.
