Do some photos together. If the results are not amazing, move on. Look for great images, and personality from your photographer.
What's your favorite moment during a wedding?
I have two...The first look for a couple is always gold! I love to shoot a tight headshot to really portray the emotions. I also love the couple's first dance. Both show pure emotion, with no posing. Truth and love only!
