When seeking out your wedding photographer in North Carolina, or specifically New Bern, here are some key points that, as a professional New Bern wedding photographer, every bride and groom should consider when looking for the best wedding photographer in New Bern.  I specialize in lifestyle, photojournalistic, real life weddings.



When selecting your wedding photographer in New Bern you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding.  You are, in most cases, hiring an individual who will spend time with you and your fiancé in order to capture your interactions in a laid back and natural way. Personality is a major factor in the selection process when it comes to North Carolina wedding photographers and should not be taken lightly. An awesome New Bern wedding and elopement photographer's personality can often set the tone for your entire experience, how you as a couple interact, how your bridal party responds to you, and in some cases how the stress level affects your entire wedding session . Ultimately, if you dislike your wedding photographer's personality, it can have a hugely negative effect on your wedding day in its entirety. In most cases, you will be establishing a relationship with your wedding photographer over the course of your wedding or elopement 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 whom you love is key to experiencing an amazing wedding or elopement session.



When viewing photographs of various New Bern wedding photographers or Havelock wedding photographers I would strongly suggest comparing their overall wedding photography style. Again, are you selecting a wedding, engagement or elopement photographer based on pricing alone? Do you love the style in which they photograph? Wedding photography style differs between each wedding photographer in the New Bern area. If you have found a wedding photographer whose personality you love, ask yourself if you love their style. Can you imagine decorating your home with their style of engagement and wedding photography and look at it for years and years to come? Most people would not go shopping for home decor to place the most unattractive decorations in their home just because it fit into their budget. You should feel a personal attachment to the stylistic approach of your wedding photographer. At the end of the day, a high end, professional New Bern wedding and engagement photographer should be providing you with wedding photography and artwork that you love and want to show off and/or showcase in your home.  Wedding photography style and the personality of your chosen wedding or elopement photographer in New Bern should trump price.


Let's consider my personal style of a lifestyle approach as a professional New Bern wedding and engagement photographer. Take a good look at my online galleries as you should ANY professional Emerald Isle or Morehead City wedding photographer that is under consideration. If you are a bride or groom planning your dream wedding, a couple who is celebrating your engagement or you and your fiancé are planning a smaller event or elopement that will last a lifetime, you may truly enjoy my attention to detail and relaxed approach as a New Bern wedding photographer. Most of my brides and grooms find that my specialty is in the photography of natural and laid back weddings.  I strive to be the best wedding, elopement and engagement photography experience in New Bern NC.



On that note, let's talk about pricing. While price and budgeting is always a factor when selecting your wedding photographer, there are many other factors that should play into your overall decision beyond just price alone. There are far too many couples who wish they would have selected a top of the line wedding photographer after selecting their wedding photographer on price-point alone and regretting their decision to do so. Said individuals typically select a budget wedding photographer for obvious budget reasons or have a family friend hold the responsibility of capturing their amazing wedding day photos. This is a choice that comes embedded with too much risk and often becomes a mistake in the end that can not be changed. Don't compromise on the wedding photos that you will be left to look at for the rest of your life. Often, investing an extra $200 may seem like a large amount in the front end of the wedding photography budget but, when you get those budget wedding photos in your hand you may wish you would have spent double that $200 just to make sure you weren't heartbroken over your wedding, elopement or engagement memories. Again, find a New Bern or Emerald Isle photographer's personality and style that you love and make it one of your top priorities.
