“After 18 years in the business, what steps do you recommend a bride taking when selecting a photographer for her wedding?”

 

When searching for that perfect photographer to compliment your amazing day there are so many questions to ask and ideas to be explored.  A great place to start is to take a look at your professional wedding photographers website, facebook page, etc. and ask yourself if you truly love their style, do their images really speak to you, can you picture yourself in their photography?  If you can easily answer yes to these questions then you need to explore other important questions like budget.  Do their wedding collections fit into your wedding photography budget?  The next step is to meet with the photographer in person, the actual person that will be there with you on your wedding day.  If you do not have the opportunity to meet with them in person then how will you know if you like them?  If your personalities mesh?  If you are going to be comfortable trusting them to capture one of the most important days of your life?  So take the time to sit down and visit.  If you love their style, the budget works and you click with them personally, you found your wedding photographer

We hope that you will join our Midlothian location, Real Life Studios, for our “Celebration of Smiles” on April 25, 2012. As you probably know, Operation Smile is VERY near and dear to our hearts and we are excited about this opportunity to save a few precious smiles. Real Life Studios is so proud to participate with members of Professional Photographers of America in a nationwide Celebration of Smiles campaign, sponsored by PPA Charities and Marathon Press, to benefit Operation Smile.

For a minimum donation of $24, you will receive a gift of a portrait mini-session and a desk-size portrait of yourself or a loved one. 100% of your donation will go to Operation Smile, which can repair a smile for a little as $240! For every 10 Smile Sessions we photograph, a precious smile will be saved! So tell your friends and neighbors, and bring them with you!

Earlier this week we shared great news about a portrait book we are publishing that is a true Celebration of Relationships. And now we are excited to also share that we are publishing a second book that will combine gorgeous East Coast Beaches with amazing Family Portraits.

Again we are looking for models/families to be part of this book. We have been doing sessions at beaches all along the East Coast and we would love to capture an amazing moment with your family on the beach. So if you are interested please contact us soon to schedule a session.

This book will also benefit Operation Smile/PPA Charities and you can get more information about these charities at www.operationsmile.org and www.ppacharities.com.Family Portraits

 

Look forward to talking to you soon!
