Pre-Planning Tips for Wedding Day Photography
Before your wedding day arrives, it's important to do some pre-planning to ensure that your wedding photos turn out perfect. Here are a few tips for pre-planning your wedding day photography:
1. Choose the right photographer: Your wedding photographer should understand your vision and be willing to work with you to make sure your photos turn out the way you want. Take the time to research different photographers and find one who is the perfect fit for your wedding.
2. Discuss your expectations: Talk to your photographer about your expectations for the photos. Do you have a certain style in mind? Do you want to capture traditional portraits or more candid shots? Make sure you discuss these details ahead of time so that your photographer can be prepared.
3. Consider the location: Where will you be taking your wedding photos? Make sure to find a location that complements your overall wedding theme. Outdoor locations can provide a beautiful backdrop, but if you have an indoor wedding, make sure there's plenty of natural light for the photos.
4. Schedule a timeline: Work with your photographer to create a wedding day timeline. Make sure to plan enough time for all the photos you want to take and leave room for any unexpected delays.
5. Practice your poses: If you're having a traditional portrait session, practice your poses ahead of time. This will help you feel more comfortable and confident in front of the camera on the day of the wedding.

Pictures were one of my top priorities for my wedding. I spent a lot of time reading through photographers and even contacting some. I was also pretty nervous, I had never been professionally photographed before. Crystal and her team were SO easy to work with and immediately took away the nerves. I trusted her completely and I am so happy I did. Cannot recommend enough! Ellen - Yorktown VA

Not only were her photos amazing, but she is extremely responsive to messages and will even help you when planning your big day. It was important to us to work with a photographer who has experience with same sex couples, and Crystal and Casey did a great job capturing everything for my wife and I. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. - Emily - Nellysford, VA
