Who Does

 Wedding Photography for under $1000?

You’ve probably seen the traditional wedding photography more often than you would like to admit. It’s usually a few poses of people standing up together in a group. The typical bride and groom poses are so common you could probably list them off the top of your head at this very moment.

 Wedding Photography

The group picture is fine as it shows everyone all together displaying the beautiful array of style and color of the wedding party. To me the best wedding photography is taken by a photographer who relates well with people in conversation. This type of photographer has a way of capturing the essence of the people. By that I mean even though the people may pose, this photographer brings a relaxed energy that allows the poses to look and feel natural.


 wedding photography captures the loving smile on the mother’s face as she looks at her son in his last moments of single life. There is an intuitive sense of noticing subtle moments and capturing those moments for life.

Black and White Photography In 

Digital photography in black and white is often more valued than color. There is a notable depth to black and white photography that leaves some imagination to the viewer. It’s also a great opportunity to be taken back in time momentarily to the days when life was more simple and imagination ruled the day. Great black and white photography requires a set of unique skills to make it outstanding just as color does.

Variety is the spice of life so the best wedding photography will include both black and white photography and color; digital photography and film.

Best Wedding Photographer

Having recently just been married myself in Salt Lake City, I know the stress and frustration many brides-to-be often experience when seeking the perfect photographer for their Utah wedding. Selecting a photographer to capture your wedding day is probably one of the most important hires you will ever make, so it is vital that you take the necessary time and effort to find just the right one.

First, know your style...visually that is. Determine what effects you may want, such as sepia-toned or photos printed on watercolor paper. How about the black and white pictures versus color photographs ratio? Many brides opt for a photographer that offers a well-balanced mix of traditional photographs and journalistic candid shots.

Last but certainly not least when it comes to choosing the perfect Utah wedding photographer, is not underestimating the significance of a good working relationship (if not friendship). Many of the best and most important shots of your wedding album will be intimate shots and photos taken behind the scene. You want an amiable photographer that you and your guests will be comfortable with which will enable beautiful and genuine photographs.

My fiancé and I are getting married in six weeks. I have to say I have never been quite so stressed before; who knew there was so much planning involved (or that it would cost so much - gulp!). I suppose that is why (smart) people save themselves time and trouble by hiring a wedding planner. I am thinking right about now, I should have budgeted for one.

I thought I would share some insight as far as one of your biggest wedding expenses - a photographer. For such a costly expense and important element of your wedding day, I surprisingly had no trouble finding the perfect Utah wedding photographer.

Last but certainly just as important, is to choose a photographer you are comfortable with. This person will be capturing the most important day of your life and some very emotional and intimate moments, so it is imperative that you are at ease and can be yourself around them. Get a sense of the photographer's personality upon your initial meeting; are they funny? Outgoing? Does the conversation come easy? Foster a friendship with the photographer to ensure your photos reflect your personality and turn out stunning!
