When your big day arrives, there’s so much going on around you that it’s hard to soak up all of the special moments. It may sound like a cliche, but your wedding day will be over before you know it. And when it’s all over, all of the great memories you made will only live on in your heart and in photos.
The right photographer will make the two matches, capturing all of the magic, celebration, and intense emotions that filled the air. For professional photos you’ll fall in love with, you can count on Rob Allen Photography.
How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Photographer in NYC
At Rob Allen Photography, I work closely with engaged couples to merge fantasy and reality with crisp, high-quality, artistic photos of your big day that feel like something out of a fairytale. But that doesn’t mean I’ll be perfect for your wedding, and that’s okay.
Below are some tips on choosing the perfect wedding photographer in NYC for you.
Determine Your Preferred Style
Before you can choose a wedding photographer in NYC, you have to know what style of photography you’re looking for. Do you want your wedding photos to have an artistic or dramatic look? Or maybe you prefer a candid, photojournalistic approach.
Wedding photos are rarely just one style; you can combine elements from different approaches to create a style that’s all your own. But it’s still important to determine your preferred style or styles beforehand so you can easily weed out photographers who can’t match your style.
I want your wedding to reflect your personality. At Rob Allen Photography, I like to mix styles to suit your tastes and stage unforgettable pictures.
Look at Their Portfolio
With something as precious as your wedding memories, you don’t want to take the risk of being stuck with subpar photos.
Make sure you take a thorough look at any candidate’s portfolio to get an idea of their style and see if it matches yours. This is the best and easiest way to get a representative sample of their body of work before sitting down face-to-face with a wedding photographer in NYC.
At Rob Allen Photography, I want to show you how I’ve captured others’ wedding memories. That’s why I invite all of my potential clients to take a look at my portfolio before we work together.
Sit Down and Talk to Them
Once you have your wedding photographer narrowed down to a few candidates, you should sit down with them in person and have an in-depth conversation. After all, the last thing you want is to realize on the day of your wedding that you can’t stand your photographer.
Sometimes personalities just don’t match, and that’s okay. But this meeting is the perfect time to get answers to all of your burning questions and start working out the details of your big day.
While some photographers will shy away from the client-photographer discovery phase before signing a contract, I always insist on meeting with potential clients to see how we get along before making a final decision.
Photography has always been my passion, but my drive to create dynamic, engaging photos that perfectly encapsulate a precious moment frozen in time is what keeps me going.
Whether it’s a special exchange as you walk down the aisle or a shared look between the bride and groom when the best man gets up to give his speech, I’ll be there to capture all of the candid moments that make your day special, not just the perfectly posed group photos after the ceremony.
As a father, I have learned to be patient and move according to other people’s schedules. And even though I’m extremely detail-oriented, I’m also very laid-back. You’ll never find me domineering or demanding your photos be a certain way.
I’m extremely flexible and take my cues from other people’s personalities to adapt to any situation. I’ve found this puts couples at ease and makes it easier to capture their authentic selves.
Being chosen to document one of the biggest days of your life is such a huge honor, and it’s a responsibility that I take very seriously as a wedding photographer in NYC.
Your wedding photos capture your enduring love in its most raw and candid form. From tearful vows to the big kiss and ensuing party, your wedding photographer is there to capture it all.
When you book with Rob Allen Photography, you can rest easy knowing I will be there every step of the way. I want to capture all of your big moments without making your wedding day feel like a photoshoot.
