What to look for when choosing your Knoxville Wedding Photographer
When you are looking for a Knoxville wedding photographer, we recommend taking several things into consideration. Portfolio, personality, product and pricing. These 4 items should rank high on your list when choosing a wedding photographer.
The Wedding Photographers Portfolio: The wedding portfolio should be vast and show a variety of locations, lighting and emotion. You should look closely to see that the wedding photographer can handle dark reception venues and bright outdoor sunlight. If you are looking for a quick way to determine a good photograph from bad, ask yourself if you can see some detail in the brightest and darkest parts of an image, this is also dependent on the photographers style. While viewing the portfolio you should see a variety of weddings displayed from indoor to outdoor, different weather and seasons. Can your photographer work in the rain and create stunning images? What about the snow? Keep these in mind while searching for your wedding storyteller. If you are interested in viewing our Knoxville Wedding Photographers Portfolio Click Here.
