wedding photo tips - avoid sunset ceremonies

Your wedding photographer is one of the most important vendors you’ll hire for your big day. This person will be with you through some of the most important emotional moments of your life, so it’s important that you not only hire someone you enjoy being with, but also someone who will capture your celebration in the best possible way.

Bambi Cantrell, one of the world’s most decorated and sought-after wedding photographers, says there are a number of things to keep in mind when it comes to choosing the person who will photograph your wedding. “Find a photographer who has been around the block: a seasoned pro who has been doing this for a number of years, not just somebody who is a weekend warrior,” says Cantrell. “Before the wedding your photos probably won’t be all that important to you, but after your wedding takes place those images take on greater meaning — they represent your family history.”

To help you choose a reputable photographer who will produce the types of timeless images you’ll still love on your golden anniversary, Cantrell shares some essential tips on how to avoid cringe-worthy wedding photos and the so-called-pros who shoot them.
