Tampa Bay Wedding Photography: What to buy

Talking to several different wedding photographers can drive you a little nuts. If you can find two wedding photographers who charge the same prices for the same services it's a miracle. We come in all shapes and sizes (and price ranges). So, I thought I might write a little bit about what you should buy from your photographer. I'll do several posts in the coming weeks, each highlighting a different wedding product.

We'll start off with The Proof Book.

This is an easy one because I include it for free but not all photographers do. A proof book is usually a spiral bound book with 4-6 pictures per page and contains every picture from your wedding. Even though you will be able to look at everything on the big screen in my studio and then online, it's not the same as having the pictures in your hand. Plus, Grandma and Grandpa may not be as comfortable surfing the web as they would be sitting on the couch and looking through the proof book with you. If your photographer doesn't include it, buy it. In fact, get two: One to keep forever and one that your friends and family can mark up with notes and such about the day or what prints they might want.
