Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer: Insights from Customer Reviews

Choosing the right wedding photographer comes with a lot of questions. While planning your wedding, your style, budget and more are key considerations. Asking the right questions will allow you to narrow down your choice for the best team for your wedding day. To help you navigate, we have gathered some questions to ask your wedding photographer and critical insights from our customer reviews.

What is your photography style?

Our photography style can be best described as a blend of authentic storytelling with the capture of those candid, in-between moments. Our passion lies in preserving, not just images, but the essence of you and your special day. From those heartfelt “first-look” tears, to the joyous laughs and cherished memories you create as a couple, we relish catching those genuine, emotional moments.

Through our lens, we strive to capture images of the ambiance and sentiments that will forever remind you of the beauty of your wedding day.

Review: … “Monika is a lovely person and a talented photographer. Monika did both our engagement photo shoot and wedding day photos. What stood out to me was that she was able to be everywhere effortlessly and in a non-intrusive way. The photos she delivered are beautiful but a variety of styles. Thank you Monika!”

How should the wedding day go?

A well-organized photography timeline ensures that all the important moments are captured, without causing unnecessary stress because of excess buffer time. As seasoned wedding experts, we understand the importance of thorough preparation, ensuring your satisfaction, and
we will accurately determine how much time we will need and recommend.

Review: …“Monika was different than the other photographers I looked into because she really wanted to get to know my groom and I – our story. She cared to ask about our love story, our bridal party and had the day organized before the day started. Our wedding pictures turned out beautifully. She’s great at capturing candid moments and has ideas on angles to get the best shot. I loved working with Monika and I’d hire her again for any future events we have”…..

Is an Engagement Session important?

An engagement session is an opportunity for the couple to get to know us, and vice versa. This connection is crucial because it helps couples feel more at ease in front of the camera, fostering a sense of trust and comfort that can translate into more natural and intimate wedding day photos.

Review :…” We went with an engagement session before the wedding day, and very thankful we did. Having zero experience with a photographer and unsure of what to expect during photo shoots, Monika’s approach really brought out emotion in her photos and made the whole process really fun and laid back. Her sessions are enjoyable and relaxed to the point it’s easy to forget you’re in front of a camera. Having done a shoot with her prior, we knew what to expect on our wedding day and had one less stress to worry about.“…

What should we do on the day of the wedding?

Absolutely nothing! Be you. Nerves are natural, but try to stay relaxed and enjoy every moment. Authentic emotions make for some of the best wedding photos.

Trust us, and our creative vision, and let us guide you when needed. We will help you forget so you can enjoy the day you have been planning for so long! We are here to work our magic! 

Review: …“Monika goes above and beyond to capture that magical moment and caught so many candid shots of us throughout the day. She asks you thought-provoking questions during her sessions to get you smiling and sharing stories with your bridal party and partner to capture those natural moments in a fun way. She had us laughing and tearing up all day. “…

Review: …“From the first meet and greet to the last minute of our wedding day, Monika never stopped doing the best of the best for us. She made planning much of our entire wedding day easy with the help from her many tools she provides clients as well as her invaluable advice and expertise. For someone who is awkward in front of the camera, Monika made me feel extremely comfortable, confident and most importantly, natural. None of her photos felt forced, cheesy or posed. Every single photo Monika captured was a beautiful moment frozen in time. She is truly a master of her art. I would highly recommend Monika, time and time again to photograph any important moment in your life. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!”
