If you are newly or nearly engaged and reading this… Huge congrats to you!  We are so excited for you as you navigate not only planning the event that is a wedding, but also as you embark on a life together!  We are so thrilled that you found each other!

The following scenario was a common occurence for Meg and I as we started out –

Meg and I: Do you have any questions for us?

Bride and Groom: We’re not sure what we are suppose to be asking.

Meg and I have been meeting with potential brides and groom’s together for almost 10 years now, so we have become very comfortable with these conversations.  But we also want to keep perspective in these meetings and remember that the couples we meet are not necessarily familiar or comfortable with these consultations.  With this in mind we decided to create a video sharing 10 (plus a couple) photography questions that you might consider as you are in the process of finding the perfect photographer for you big day!!  Let us know if we are missing anything, or if you have any questions for us as you are planning your big day!
