SF Wedding Guide - Photographers
Not every photographer specializes in wedding photography- an art all its own. For the best wedding album, including posed portraits to candid action shots, a good wedding photographer specializes in weddings and possesses a romantic eye in addition to technical expertise.
Wedding photographers interact closely with the bride, groom, wedding party and guests in all aspects of the wedding, so when choosing a San Francisco wedding photographer it is important to find a photographer you can relate to, whom you trust to capture irreplaceable moments. When making this important selection, it is best to meet with the wedding photographer in person, before the wedding, to determine if there is a friendly rapport.
Beside wedding experience and a personable demeanor, there are other issues to consider when choosing a San Francisco wedding photographer. Does the San Francisco wedding photographer also do video? For both photography and video, a San Francisco wedding photographer should ideally have back up equipment on hand in case of emergency and will include in his or her fees any assistant photographers that will be photographing the wedding.
San Francisco wedding photographers often offer a variety of packages to suit different budgets. Wedding photography packages can include the number of shots taken or locations covered, photo negatives, photo enlargements and even the creation of a custom photo album.
