LET'S GET DOWN TO BRASS TAX...
Creating wedding photography that truly captures the special connection between two people means taking the time to get to know you. Really know you. We believe that forming genuine connections with our wedding couples is what enables us to make each wedding experience so unique. Every client has different needs, and because of this, we pride ourselves in being able to accommodate couples in most budget ranges.
We know that your budget is important, and so are the wedding photographs you'll cherish for the rest of your life. When hiring your wedding photographer, there are five important considerations to keep in mind:
It can be exhausting to search for the right wedding photographer in the Boston area. Some people spend hundreds of hours searching online for the perfect trifecta – a beautiful portfolio, a good personality and the kicker… within your budget.
While some photographers offer unbelievably low prices, they often don’t provide the level of service necessary to produce truly stunning photographs. When a photographer doesn’t take the time to get to know the couple, the wedding photographs suffer. Alternatively, many award-winning studios in the Boston area are priced so expensively, their services are only accessible to the extremely wealthy.
At Redwood and Rye, we offer the same premium service that many of our more expensive competitors do, but we customize our packages to include only the services you truly need, with prices starting at $3750. We’ve been honored to receive five-star ratings across the board on Facebook, WeddingWire and The Knot from our previous clients who have consistently told us how thrilled they were with the value of their wedding package.
Something often overlooked when selecting a wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your wedding. Typically you will want your wedding photographer to be with you to document all the moments of your wedding day. After all, that’s what you are hiring them for. That being said, typical coverage requirements for your wedding day should be about 6-10 hours.
Be careful here. Some wedding photographers offer cut-rate prices by offering you less than adequate wedding coverage for your day. These become hidden costs and once you realize it, it’s often too late.
When selecting a wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and your group all. day. long. Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.
Your wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party. Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether. You will more than likely be working with your wedding photographer for a year, or longer in some cases, by the time you factor in your Forever session and post wedding photography and albums.
//5 NUMBER OF PHOTOGRAPHERS
How many wedding photographers will be at your event? Most events need at least two wedding photographers. This ensures that your wedding photographer is focused on working with your group and directing the day and allows the second wedding photographer to have coverage going on at the same time.
At Redwood & Rye Studio, we include two photographers with every collection to ensure your day is properly documented.
//3 WEDDING ALBUMS
What will you do with all your photos from your wedding photographer? Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album that your wedding photographer should provide you with. Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day. This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your wedding.
When selecting a wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family. Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes. Questions you should ask your wedding photographer 1) How many pages/spreads come in the wedding album? 2) How many photos will be in the wedding album? 3) What cover options are available for my wedding album?
