Just sending out a red flag to brides that are looking for a professional wedding photographer. The key to the last sentence is professional. Just because your family member or friend of the family has a camera this does not make them a professional photographer. You spend thousands of dollars and months (some years) planning your wedding why skip on the photography quality? When the wedding is all said and done, you will only have your rings and photos. If your photographer does not meet these next two items skip them & move on 1. Full time- this means your wedding isn't a hobby or something to do on the side 2. Require a contract- Things will not go right if you didn't sign on the dotted line & you will be the one paying the price. Just trying to help.
