Here some key points that Amanda Picone believes every newly engaged couple should consider when looking for the best New York City wedding photographer, best Long Island wedding photographer, and/or best New England wedding photographer.

When selecting the best NYC wedding photographer, best Long Island wedding photographer, and/or best New England wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day. With Amanda, you are hiring an individual 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 NYC wedding photographer, Long Island wedding photographer, and/or New York 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 whom you love is key to experiencing an amazing wedding day.

When viewing photographs of various NYC wedding photographers, Long Island wedding photographers, and/or New York wedding photographers you should be directly comparing their wedding photography style. Again, are you selecting a wedding photographer based on pricing? Do you love the style in which they photograph? Wedding photography style differs between each wedding photographer. If you have found a wedding photographer whose personality you absolutely 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 just because it fit into their budget regardless of whether or not they love how it looks. You should feel a personal attachment to the stylistic approach of your wedding photography. At the end of the day, your NYC wedding 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 Long Island and NYC wedding photographer should trump price.

On that note, let's talk about pricing. While price and budgeting is always a factor when selecting your wedding photographer or any vendor, there are many other factors that should play into your overall decision beyond just price alone. There are numerous couples out there who wish they would have selected a top of the line NYC 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 wedding photographer or hearing stories through the grapevine 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 couples chose their NYC wedding photographer, Long Island wedding photographer, and/or New York 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.

Hourly coverage for your upcoming wedding is often misunderstood or even overlooked when selecting a professional wedding photographer. Consider what moments during your wedding day might be important in telling the story of your wedding within an album. A very typical coverage time for a professional NYC wedding photographer may be between 6 to 10 hours in order to capture the most meaningful moments of the wedding day. Be sure to discuss this with your chosen professional photographer before signing on the dotted line.
