The pictures of your wedding day at Atrium Weddings in Utah, will become priceless treasures, so be sure you have a good wedding photographer to capture all the sweet moments of the day. Find someone you know and can trust to take fabulous photos of those priceless moments. This person could be a family member or friend or a professional photographer. Make sure they are experienced and that you like their style of photography. Look around and ask for referrals from others who loved their photographer. In my opinion, it is better to go with someone you know and trust than a complete stranger. We had a wonderful photographer who just happened to be my uncle, however, some friends of mine were not so fortunate.
My friends had won a photography package from a bridal fair and they were so excited because that was one less thing they had to pay for. They ended up really loving the person who took their engagement photos, but that was not the same person who showed up on their wedding day. The second photographer was not so great. First of all he showed up about thirty minutes late, and second, he acted like this was the first wedding he had ever taken pictures for. He seemed a little overwhelmed with the whole ordeal. My friends ended up having to tell him the shots they would like, almost having to direct each poise. This was very frustrating for them, especially when they were just expecting to smile and let the professional direct them on what to do. Many of the pictures that day did not turn out. It was a “free” disaster. Luckily when they told the owner of the company that they were not pleased, they were able to have another session with another photographer a couple of weeks later. Although they wished the pictures were taken right the first time, they did have fun dressing up in their wedding attire again.
To avoid a photographer disaster, make sure you find a reputable photographer you know you can trust.
