When seeking out your wedding photographer in San Francisco here are some key points that, as a professional San Francisco wedding photographer, we believe every newly engaged couple should consider when looking for the best San Francisco wedding photographer or Napa Valley wedding photographer.
When selecting your wedding photographer in Palo Alto or the Bay Area you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day you are, in most cases, hiring an individual or a team of professional photographers who will spend the majority of your entire day with you photographing your wedding, spending time with your friends and your family, documenting all of your fabulous handcrafted DIY details or hand selected and carefully thought out decor, and capturing every moment that is important to you. Personality is a major factor in the selection process when it comes to professional San Francisco wedding photographers and should not be taken lightly. An awesome San Francisco wedding photographer's personality can often set the tone for your entire day, how you as a couple interact, how your bridal party responds, and in some cases how the stress level during your wedding is controlled . Ultimately, if you dislike your wedding photographer's personality, it can have a hugely negative effect on your wedding photography as well as your wedding day altogether. In most cases, you will be establishing a relationship with your wedding photographer over the course of your wedding planning and beyond that should contribute to the love of their personality, making you want to spend more time with them. Surrounding yourself with individuals and vendors whom you love is key to experiencing an amazing wedding day.
When viewing photographs of various Bay Area wedding photographers, Napa Valley wedding photographers, or San Francisco wedding photographers we would strongly suggest comparing their wedding photography style. Again, are you selecting a wedding photographer based on pricing alone? Do you love the style in which they photograph? Wedding photography style differs between each wedding photographer in the San Francisco metro area. If you have found a wedding photographer whose personality you love, ask yourself if you love their style. Can you imagine decorating your home with their style of wedding photography and looking at it for years and years to come? Most people would not go shopping for home decor to place the most unattractive decorations in their home just because it fit into their budget. You should feel a personal attachment to the stylistic approach of your wedding photographer. At the end of the day, a high end, professional San Fran, Napa Valley, or Sonoma wedding photographer should be providing you with wedding photography and artwork that you love and want to show off and/or showcase in your home. Wedding photography style and the personality of your chosen wedding photographer in San Fran should trump price.
Let's consider my stylistic approach as a professional and experienced San Francisco wedding photographer. Take a good look at my online galleries as you should ANY professional wedding photographer that you may be considering. If you are a romantic, artistic, and elegant wedding couple who loves the feel of luxury and are getting married at a fabulous San Francisco wedding venue with lots of amazing and luxurious hand-crafted DIY details and photography is extremely valuable to you, you may truly enjoy my attention to detail and my artistic photojournalistic approach as a San Francisco wedding photographers and metro area wedding photography specialists.
On that note, let's talk about pricing. While price and budgeting is always a factor when selecting your wedding photographer in San Francisco or any vendor, there are many other factors that should play into your overall decision beyond just price alone. There are far too many couples who wish they would have selected a top of the line San Francisco wedding photographer after selecting their wedding photographer on price-point alone and regretting their decision to do so. Said individuals typically select a budget wedding photographer for obvious budget reasons or have a family friend hold the responsibility of capturing their amazing wedding photos. This is a choice that comes embedded with too much risk and often becomes a mistake in the end that can not be changed. At the end of the day, when the music fades away, the flowers die, and your budget is spent, the ONE thing you will have to remember all of the moments of your wedding day is your wedding photography. Don't compromise on the only wedding photos that you will be left to look at for the rest of your life. Often, investing an extra $2000 may seem like a large amount in the front end of the wedding budget but, when you get those budget wedding photos in your hand you may wish you would have spent double that $2k just to make sure you weren't heartbroken over your wedding memories. Again, find a San Francisco wedding photographer's personality and style that you love and make it one of your top priorities.
If you're a Bay Area couple planning on taking your fabulous and elegant wedding outside the state of California don't hesitate to find a local Northern California wedding photographer to take with you to your destination wedding. Just because I am located in San Francisco does not mean I am not also a destination wedding photographer. In fact, I prefer to be inspired by new, amazing locations, warm weather, beaches, etc. As a creative San Francisco wedding photographer, nothing sparks my creative juices more than jetting off to a luxurious and romantic new wedding venue. In addition to being inspired by unique wedding venues and locations you will rest easy knowing that your destination wedding photographer is someone you can fully trust to capture your wedding day photos just as you have imagined. Often destination wedding locations come packaged with wedding professionals that are more invested in providing a service to the venue that employs or contracts them. I would love to be chosen by YOU and working for YOU! In addition, there may be a language or communication barrier that is difficult to bridge the gap on when you're working with someone whom you may only meet for the first time on your wedding day. Again, this goes straight back to knowing your destination wedding photographer and trusting in them fully to capture the photos that you have dreamed of. As a destination wedding photographer I am prepared to travel wherever your fabulous and luxurious wedding day may take you!
