HOW TO CHOOSE AN LGBT WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Before you begin searching for your wedding photography pro, start by defining the style of photography you love. Look up wedding portfolios, check celebrity gay weddings. Ask around to find photographers same sex couple prefer. Create a mood board of all the wedding photo styles you’re fond of.
Same sex couples tend to have similar wedding photography preferences as the straight ones. So think about timing, how many photographers you want, who gets photo rights, and if packages are customizable. In addition, it helps to make a list of requirements for your special wedding day.
Once you find 2-3 photographers whose look you love, it’s time to learn if your personality clicks. Reach out via EVOL.LGBT’s “Request Quote” feature. It will walk you through the key pieces of info to share. To determine the fit, ask for references from other LGBTQ couples they photographed.

WHAT TO ASK A GAY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER?
Ask your wedding photographer about the details like payment schedule, working style of a photographer, arriving and departure plan for a photographer, things photographers focus on, the way in which images will be stored and backed up, retouching details and timeline for processing and delivery. Do they work with other wedding vendors?
DO SATIN WEDDING DRESSES PHOTOGRAPH WELL?
Satin will photograph better when it’s not a pure white. Instead, soften the look with an off-white or ivory. It’ll still look really white in the photos, but without becoming too fluorescent and glaring.
DO YOU NEED TWO PHOTOGRAPHERS AT A WEDDING?
Yes, it is necessary to have 2 people to capture both the bride & groom getting ready if they are in different locations and getting ready at the same time. During your ceremony, it is impossible to capture the bride walking down the aisle and the groom’s reaction to seeing her for the first time.
