A personal connection is so important between a bride and groom and their wedding photographer. One of my tips to brides and photographers is to try to set up a phone conversation as soon as possible. For me, that is always a first step when I hear from a potential client. I find that a phone conversation allows us to make a personal connection- it gives us the chance to be able to chat, get to know one another, and for me to hear about wedding plans and vision. When contacting a photographer, you will usually fill out a contact form on a website, or send an email to the photographer. Once you hear back from them, ask to speak on the phone if they do not suggest it first. This will give you both a chance to see if you make a connection!
