Choosing your Wedding Photographer

January 28, 2023

Choosing a wedding photographer is a personal and important decision as they will capture the memories of one of the most special days of your life. Here are some tips to help you to choose the right photographer:

  1. Style: Search for a photographer whose style matches what you envision for your wedding. Some photographers specialize in traditional, posed shots, while others have a more candid, photojournalistic approach.
  2. Portfolio: Look through the photographer’s portfolio to see their work and get a sense of their style. Pay attention to their use of light, composition, and creativity in capturing the moment.
  3. References: Ask for references from the photographer, and speak with couples who have used their services in the past. Find out about their experience and ask about the quality of the photographer’s work and customer service.
  4. Package: Make sure that their wedding packages include everything you want, such as an engagement session, digital images, albums, and prints. Be sure to ask about the number of hours they will be at the wedding and whether they will bring a second shooter.
  5. Personality: You’ll be spending a lot of time with your photographer on your wedding day, so it’s important to make sure you get along with them. Schedule a meeting with the photographer before the wedding to see if they are someone you can work with.
  6. Budget: Determine your budget for photography, and make sure the photographer you choose fits within it. Keep in mind that the cost of photography is an investment in capturing memories that you will cherish for the rest of your life.
  7. Contract: Read the contract thoroughly and ask any questions you have before signing. Make sure you understand what is included in the package, the payment schedule, and the terms for cancellations or rescheduling.

Remember, the right photographer will not only capture stunning images, but they will also be a calming and supportive presence on your wedding day, and most importantly, will guide you throughout your wedding process. Photography isn’t only a service, it’s an experience.

WHY we're the perfect match


Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way. 


"Not only she is a talented photographer,
she is an amazing person."

My husband and I had a wonderful experience with Marcela. Not only is she a talented photographer, she is an amazing person. She coached us through the whole process. She even took time to talk me through different outfits and what would look best in photos. Most of my friends wait months and months for their photos, Marcela had a very quick turn around. She is very passionate about her art and I can’t wait to work with her again in the future.


"Marcela is there for you. Everything is about you, your husband, your family and what makes YOU feel beautiful, handsome and happy.."

"When I started looking for a photographer for our wedding, my goal was to find someone who had light and airy aesthetics. I wanted to find someone who could capture what looked like a dream. I searched and searched until I finally stubbled upon Marcela through “the knot”. I cannot put into words how grateful I am to have found her. Not only did she capture photo after photo, leaving me with tears in my eyes and a full heart, but she became a friend to us..."
