Vantage Point: From a Photographer's Perspective

Posted by Mary Cahill, Photography Expert
Hi everyone. I'm back again with more insight on getting the most bang for your memory buck on your wedding day. Who better to share wedding photography advice than a professional photographer? This time, I talked with Anna Williams, whose own wedding was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings, for her own personal take on capturing her wedding day:
What did you look for in a wedding photographer?
We really wanted someone who would be able to capture the fresh natural light well. We also wanted someone who was really adaptable. It wasn't at all about planned scenarios; we just wanted him to catch those genuine moments that never happen according to plan. I think it was also important to find someone who wouldn't be
intimidated by all the other photographers who were there.
What was your favorite moment captured on your wedding day?
It's hard to pick a favorite moment because the day just unfolds in such an amazing way. Each minute flows into the next. There was a great moment when my husband dipped me—very exciting because we were near the edge of a bluff. The picture makes it look more dangerous than it was, but the picture will last much longer than people's
Any unique tips for how to archive & display your wedding photos?
We love having a bound hardcover book. Sometimes it can be expensive, but it's worth it because it becomes a family heirloom. I like something sleek that isn't bulky like a lot of traditional wedding albums. Just make sure that the printing process is archival-quality with nice paper stock and great ink.
Below is a photograph of Anna putting on the final touches, by her photographer of choice Jason Walz.
