Now that you’ve have a few Los Angeles wedding venue ideas in mind, next you'll need to hire a photographer and videographer to capture your special day. There are a few things to consider when selecting the photo and film team for your wedding. To help with this decision, we have listed a few tips.
A great way to choose a good photographer & videographer is to check whether they have filmed at your wedding venue (or somewhere similar) before. This way, they’ll know the ins and outs of the venue and be familiar with the lay of the land
You’ll need to choose a photographer and videographer whose style really appeals to you. Modern and vibey? Or artsy and emotive? Be sure to go through several of their previous wedding reels and galleries before deciding which style you want - and who can best provide it.
Sometimes, the wedding photographer and/or videographer you’ve got your heart set on is not in the city where you’re getting married. But that doesn't mean they can’t travel to you for your wedding. So, don’t be afraid to look outside your city and ask them how far they are willing to commute.
