If Sofia the First had been around when I was a kid, I bet I would have been just as smitten and would love the opportunity to throw a party in that theme. When one of those little girls’ birthday rolled around doting parents aka Leandro and Martha Domingo knew just what to do!

The wedding day began with a welcome refreshment from Starbucks while Pillowcase the band serenaded the guests. Shepherds of the Hills choir, the couple’s special guests played a wonderful ballad while the lovely bride walked down the aisle in her beautiful Tin Yu gown and picture perfect makeup by Abbie Feraren. Doc Noel looked every bit as dashing in his Edwin Valerio suit. The ceremony was conducted by Pastor Emmanuel Nanez, a longtime friend of the family.

Merry Me - Weddings and Events - Questions to Ask a Potential Wedding Photographer

1. Do you have my date open?

NOTE: Obviously, if the answer is NO and you’re not willing or able to change your date, don’t bother asking the rest of these questions.

3. Do you have photos of entire weddings that I can see?

NOTE: Request to see the images from a few complete weddings to better judge the photographer’s work and see how he photographs the entire spectrum of a wedding.

4. Do you have a portfolio I can review? Are all of the images yours, and is the work recent?

5. How would you describe your photography style (e.g. traditional, photojournalistic, creative candid)?

TIP: Take some magazine clippings of photos you like to the meeting with the photographer to show him or her what styles you like.

6. What are your packages and rates?

7. What type of equipment do you use?

8. Are you shooting in digital or film format or both?

This format allows the photographer the most flexibility in editing and adding special effects such as sepia tones. They can also provide you with a CD or online portfolio of shots very soon after the wedding!
