Jeff Berger and Joe Brucculeiri are veterans of the wedding photography business and know exactly what it takes to produce stunning photos. Even after nearly twenty years in the industry together, Berger and Brucculeiri continue to give exceptional care and attention to each wedding they shoot.

For example, Berger and Brucculeiri include an engagement photo session as part of every wedding package, which helps them get to know the couple in a relaxed setting, and gives the couple a chance to get comfortable with them.

JB PhotographersWhen the wedding day arrives, this duo strives to keep the picture process smooth and easy, and promise that, “when things don’t go as planned (almost every wedding) we go with the flow.”

Unflappable photographers Berger and Brucculeiri produce images of polished grace, ebullience, and everything in between. They know how to show a wedding’s best side, which they do with each photograph they take.

Hiring a Wedding Photographer: Advice from Behind the Lens

This week, we're happy to present a guest post from featured photographer Jill Lauren, of Jill Lauren Photography.

Working with your wedding photographer should be seamless, easy and fun. Included are a few suggestions on how to make your wedding day amazing because of your photographer.

It all starts when you hire a photographer. I totally understand budgets and bottom lines – with that in mind, make sure you hire someone that has a great personality. Not every photographer is going to understand or “get you”. Interview a few that are within your budget. Always follow your gut and hire the one you “like”  the best. (You’ll need to like them to spend all day walking around and listening to what they want you to do)

The next best thing to do after you’ve hired your favorite wedding photographer  -  Plan an Engagement Session. This is the PERFECT opportunity to work together without the pressure of the wedding day. This simple concept of getting to know each other on a professional level makes your wedding day photos smooth and amazing. (plus, as a bonus – you’ll get additional great images of yourself. Win-Win)

While you may be working on your “day-of” timeline with your venue, DJ, or wedding planner – your photographer is a KEY individual that needs to be involved with this timeline. Ask for feedback regarding start times, sunset times, various photo schedules (portraits, family photos, bridal party photos). I’m assuming your photos are on the TOP of your priority list – so MAKE the necessary time for those images by scheduling it in with your photographers advice and suggestions.

This last suggestion seems like a no-brainer. But it is so important. Communicate with your photographer. Lots and lots of open communication. Email, text, call her on the phone. Share your ideas and inspiration. Some photographers like receiving ideas (hello pinterest addicts), while others may have their own unique style….it doesn’t matter. Tell her what you like, what you don’t like and what you dream your wedding could be. She will listen. She will absorb. Your photographer should take your ideas, her style and expertise and blend them together for your own one of a kind wedding experience.

When you follow these simple suggestions – you’re nearly guaranteed a good experience with your wedding photographer, which in turn means a seamless and nearly perfect wedding day.
