Here are some points that Dan Dalstra Photography believes every bride or couple should consider when looking for the best El Paso wedding photographer, best destination wedding photographer, and/or best same sex wedding photographer.

//Personality
When selecting your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. You are hiring a person who will spend the majority of your entire day with you photographing your wedding, spending time with your friends and your family, and capturing every moment that is important to you. Personality is a major factor in the selection process and should not be taken lightly.

Your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer's personality can often set the tone for your entire day, how you as a couple interact, how your bridal party responds, and in some cases how the stress level during your wedding is controlled . Ultimately, if you dislike your wedding photographer's personality, it can have a hugely negative effect on your wedding photography as well as your wedding day altogether. In most cases, you will be establishing a relationship with your wedding photographer over the course of your wedding planning and beyond that should contribute to the love of their personality, making you want to spend more time with them. Surrounding yourself with individuals and vendors, including your wedding photographer, whom you love are key to experiencing an amazing wedding day.


//Style
When viewing photographs of various El Paso wedding photographers, destination wedding photographers, or LGBT wedding photographers you should be directly comparing their wedding photography style. Again, are you selecting a wedding photographer based on pricing? Do you love their wedding photography style? Wedding photography styles differ between each El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer. If you have found a wedding photographer that you love ask yourself if you love their style. Can you imagine decorating your home with their style of wedding photography and looking at it for years and years to come. Most people would not go shopping for home decor to place the most inexpensive decorations in their home if it did not compliment their personal taste and/or the rest of the decor in their home. You should feel a personal attachment to the stylistic approach of your wedding photography. At the end of the day, your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer should be providing you with wedding photography that you love and want to show off and/or showcase in your home. Wedding photography style and the personality of your El Paso wedding photographer , destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer should trump price.


//Price
While price and budgeting is always a factor when selecting your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer, there are many other factors that should play into your overall decision. We hear of many couples who wish they would have selected a top of the line El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer. Whether it's a bridesmaid at a wedding who has seen the wedding photographer that the bride has chosen and can only wish they would have spent a little more to get the best El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer or through the grapevine who has horror stories about how much they dislike their wedding photos or don't have any photos to show off as art in their home, it's likely that these brides chose their El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer solely based on price. This is a choice that comes embedded with too much risk and often becomes a mistake in the end that can not be changed. At the end of the day, when the music fades away, the flowers die, and your budget is spent, the ONE thing you will have to remember all of the moments of your wedding day is your wedding photography. Don't compromise on the only wedding photos that you will be left to look at for the rest of your life.

//Wedding Albums
What do you plan to do with the images that your wedding photographer provides you with? Too often we hear the number one question when it comes to what is included in your wedding photography package is, "will I receive the digital files?" This is a fabulous question to ask your wedding photographer. However, your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer should be asking you in response, "what do you plan to do with your digital files?" We have yet to meet an El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer who can guarantee that a JPEG file format will be viewable without some form of conversion 30 years down the road when you are trying to show your grandchildren the wedding photography from your wedding.

Don't underestimate the power of physically tangible wedding photography artwork. Your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer should be including artwork in every package they have to offer you. What's more, they should be providing you with a custom and beautifully designed wedding album that you can hold in your hand. Your wedding photography should be artfully designed into your wedding album so that it tells the story of your day. Your wedding album is intended to be, and should be treasured as your first family heirloom. This is the one keepsake you will have forever to remember your El Paso or destination wedding.

When selecting an El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer you should ask to see all of the albums that they offer. There are many unique shapes, sizes, and finishes that go into customizing a wedding album and making it unique to you. Don't be afraid to ask your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer what options they can provide you with for your wedding album. Such options might include how many pages does it take to tell my story in the wedding album you offer? Or how many images are placed in a wedding album, on average, to tell my story? Don't be afraid to inquire about the exterior of your wedding album and what finishing options are available from your wedding photographer.

//Coverage
Like artwork, hourly coverage for your El Paso wedding is often misunderstood or even overlooked when selecting an El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer. Consider what moments during your wedding day might be important in telling the story of your wedding within your album. A very typical coverage time for an El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer may be between 8 to 10 hours in order to capture the most meaningful moments of the wedding day.

Don't be fooled by El Paso wedding photographers, destination wedding photographers, or LGBT wedding photographers who skimp on hourly coverage up front to save you some cash in your wedding budget only to stick it to you in the end. Many El Paso wedding photographers are skilled at upselling you in the end after it's too late to decide otherwise and then you're out of luck. Your El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer should be discussing your wedding photography time-line almost immediately to help you in making an educated decision about your wedding photography coverage so that you have exactly what you need.


//Number of wedding photographers
How many El Paso wedding photographers, destination wedding photographers, or LGBT wedding photographers will be covering your El Paso or destination wedding? Most typical events require at least two wedding photographers at all times. Having more than one El Paso wedding photographer, destination wedding photographer, or LGBT wedding photographer at your wedding day will allow for maximum coverage in multiple locations during your wedding day. This is a great way for you to not have to be concerned with what is getting photographed and what isn't. At the end of the wedding day, upon receiving your wedding photographs, you should, in many instances, respond with, "I didn't even know you were photographing that."

Having two wedding photographers will allow you to enjoy your wedding day as well as enjoy the final product of your wedding photographs. Essentially, nothing will be missed.

//Destination Wedding Photographers
Are you living in the El Paso area? It's not uncommon that we get interest in engagement sessions for local couples who plan to get married elsewhere. It's standard practice for destination wedding venues to supply a destination wedding photographer with the package price. However, going with the destination wedding photographer included in the wedding venue package is a huge risk to take. The included destination wedding photographer will most likely have zero personal interest in you as their Client. They are working for the venue who pays them out of your wedding package. It's possible you may have very little say in how your wedding photography goes down. In addition, the likely photograph your wedding venue week in and week out. They are out of creativity. The destination wedding photographer will more often than not take you around to all of the same locations they do with their couples for every event. There is little originality. Finally, what if you have a problem with your wedding photos or your destination wedding photographer in any way? You will be limited in terms of how you can resolve your problem. Do they speak English? Do they live stateside? Do they care about you? If you're looking for an amazing destination wedding photographer who cares about you, cares about the style of photography you're looking for, is dedicated to making sure that you as the client and often as the friend is 100% satisfied, we suggest you consider hiring a destination wedding photographer that you have hand selected and trust to treat you as their priority.

//LGBT Wedding Photographers
When selecting your LGBT wedding photographer, same sex wedding photographer, or gay friendly wedding photographer there are many considerations that go into that selection. We would suggest applying all of the above points when choosing your LGBT wedding photographer, same sex wedding photographer, or gay friendly wedding photographer. In addition. When looking for a LGBT wedding photographer, same sex wedding photographer, or gay friendly wedding photographer be sure to ask them if they are LGBT friendly and support marriage equality. Having the assurance that you LGBT wedding photographer, same sex wedding photographer, or gay friendly wedding photographer supports what you believe 100% is priceless.
