Wedding Date Popularity

When you find the photographer and videographer of your choice be sure to book them as soon as possible.  Remember that other couples may also be looking to book your date.  Be sure to ask your vendor how to secure their services for your date.  Below is a chart outlining Cincinnati area availability requests.  In those months that have high volumes it is most likely that someone else also has your planned date.  (The data has been averaged per month and collected for 2009, 2010, and 2011 dates).

Printable Discs

24 comments »

When meeting your photographer you should find out if the packages include a printable disc of all your wedding day images.  Most digital photographers will be able to offer this service to you.  Sometimes these discs are included in your package.  Make sure, however, that your disc has the full resolution images rather than what are sometimes called “printable proofs”.  The full resolution images can be used to print all the standard size prints from a photo lab of your choice.

Engagement Sessions

24 comments »

Engagement sessions can be a great way to get to know your photographer.  Sometimengagement_image_3es you can book them separately to try out your photographer, and often you can get one as part of your package.  To get the most out of your session remember to meet with and book your photographer early enough before your wedding day.  Remember, most photographers will have weddings booked on Saturdays so you should try to plan your engagement session for a weekday afternoon or maybe a Sunday.  Usually, they are standard portrait sessions for you and your fiance and typically last about an hour.  When planning one, think about places that are meaningful to you. 

coordinating colors

Picking out coordinating outfits will help make a more pleasant composition.  Solid colors usually work best,  but you don’t have to stick to the classics (ie matching jeans and white shirts).  Bring your own style with you and have a little fun. A good session should have time for classic shots as well as pictures unique to you as a couple.  You can even ask your photographer if there is enough time for multiple outfits.  But most importantly wear clothing that you can feel comfortable in and remember to be yourself. 

Now that you have your images (remember to find a photographer who will give you your images – see post on printable discs), what will you do with them?  With enough planning you can use them as save-the-date cards or magnets.  For a good list of consumer products visit mpix.  You can also use them as your wedding invitations or just include them with traditional invites by printing them as wallets.  Some couples use them to replace traditonal guest books.  For example, you can print a small album with space for your guests to sign or you can have them sign a large photo matte which can later be framed.  Your photographer can help you with designing and printing your guest book, or you can use a webservice like picaboo.
