Ben+Joella are first and foremost in love. Their proposal happened when Ben fooled Joella into thinking they had a photo session (which had in fact been secretly rescheduled). And now, after more than five years of love and photography, they are back to their roots of traditional photographic techniques and shooting film. They are artists, entrepreneurs, educators, philanthropists, and the Northwest's foremost hubby and wife film wedding photography team.
Ben + Joella share their love as a couple through their art. They have taken their skills, their passion, and their talent and now share that with you.
Here are three pointers to choosing the perfect photographer for you.
1. Check their social media
Social media is very different from their website. Social media you can see who is connecting to the photographer and how they are connecting to their clients. On instagram check who has tagged them. If other professionals are tagging them it shows they work well with other vendors and shows their professionalism.
2. Don't let price be the decision maker.
Your photos are so important. Choose your photographer and then decide on the price. Many brides let price be the controlling factor in choosing their photographer. Choose the photographer who you have the best connection with and who has work that you connect with the most. Don't let price be the primary control factor.
3. Trust your photographer. Once you have chosen your photographer you have to trust them. They are the artist, trust them.
