Choosing Your Lake Tahoe Wedding Photographer

After all, they will be one of the most important professionals you’ll hire for your wedding day. Their job is to capture the most intimate and memorable moments that you will cherish forever, so choose wisely!

Finding your perfect photographer will consist of scrolling through their portfolios and looking through their previous work. Can you imagine you and your fiance in the images they’ve shot before? Do you like their photography style and artistic perspective?

Important Things to Consider In When Browsing Through Wedding Photos

  • Attention to Detail (i.e. boutonnieres, cufflinks, hair & makeup, table preparations, etc.)

  • Candid shots & facial expressions

  • Lighting Conditions (especially if you are having an evening wedding ceremony)

  • Formal family portraits

Once you’ve identified a Lake Tahoe wedding photographer that meets your expectations, be sure to interview them to make sure your personalities match. Prepare a list of questions with your spouse-to-be and write down what’s most important to the both of you. Remember that your wedding is a once in a lifetime experience, so be sure to invest in the right wedding photographer to capture your best moments.

After meeting with your potential wedding photographer, you will know whether or not you want to book them. If they check all your boxes – photography expectations, personality, and price point – be sure to let them know right away so you’re scheduled in their calendar. Lake Tahoe is a popular wedding destination and it would be a bummer if another couple swoops your wedding date for the photographer you’re most interested in.

Once the contract has been signed and a deposit is placed, pop a bottle of champagne or pour a glass of wine because your long search for the perfect Lake Tahoe wedding photographer is over! You can now rest easy and let them showcase their expertise on your wedding day. Don’t worry too much about putting together a detailed shot list. After all, they’re pros at this so let them do their thing. Your top priority is to be in the moment and enjoy your wedding ceremony & reception. All those beautiful moments will be captured and printed in an album for you and your spouse to look back on and cherish forever.
