3 mistakes to avoid when hiring a wedding photographer

Here is a link to an article on another blog - "International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers." It may offer some insight for choosing the right photographer for your wedding.

And I was quoted in the piece, they also used one of my favorite wedding images (below). A candid moment between the bride and her mom - just before leaving the Commonwealth Club in Richmond.

Well, 9th place - but I was happy to receive a ninth place award for a "First Dance" image - taken recently at The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond..

Above is my 9th place photo - "First Dance" category. But you should check out all of the images from the latest WPJA worldwide contest - WPJA Contest Results  . 

The Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) is also a perfect place to begin your search for a wedding photographer. The primary emphasis of the organization is really geared to photojournalism and editorial style wedding coverage.

The advantage of two photographers. I was on the floor, getting the shot of Kimberly as she came down the aisle, and at the same moment, my daughter Nancy shot over her shoulder - to get Patrick's reaction.

The reason I went so low (on the floor) - was to crop out the windows on each side of the bride. They were way too bright. By going with a low angle, it blocked the view of the bright windows, and it also created an interesting angle at a decisive moment.
