One of the most important decisions you will make about your intimatewedding ceremony is the photographer. Small weddings and elopements have unlimited opportunities for sweet moments and customizations. These moments are what celebrate the essence of you, your partner, and the life you are creating together. They are the moments you will want to remember forever. A professional, experienced wedding photographer will capture these memories flawlessly and one who is experienced in smaller ceremonies will know what to look for without you telling them.
But how do you even begin the search for a photographer who is the right fit for your small and intimate wedding? The prospect can be overwhelming. One simple Google search will tell you there are hundreds to thousands of wedding photographers in your city alone, each of them with their own unique style. How do you go about narrowing down the search to match your vision (and budget) to their style and talent?
