You’re newly engaged and searching for a Breckenridge engagement photographer. Here’s how to choose the best one for you.
When you’re searching for a Breckenridge engagement photographer, it’s also no secret that you’ve got plenty to choose from. How do you pick? How do you know you’ve chosen the right one? We’re to help.
It’s no secret we love engagement sessions. What a perfect, easy way for us to get to know our clients and for you to get the experience of being in front of the camera before your wedding day! Choosing the right photographer for your engagement session is so important. It’s even more important when that same photographer will also be covering your wedding!
Are you searching for a Breckenridge Engagement Photographer? Here are a few tips we want to share to help you find the best one… for you!
Review portfolios to find the perfect style.
Light and airy. True to color. Moody. Colorful. Muted. Documentary. Posed. I’m sure you’ve seen many of these terms in your search. Spend the time looking at photographer’s Instagrams and websites. Ask to see full galleries. Most engagement and wedding photographers edit in a specific way and won’t change that part of their process. Make sure you FALL IN LOVE with the work of the person you’ll hire. What you see is a pretty good indicator of what you’ll get.
Find someone local!
This, for a million reasons. There are so many amazing Breckenridge elopement photographers who live within 45 minutes of Main Street Breck. Any of them would LOVE to work with you & you’ll rest easy that your photographer won’t get stuck on I-70 trying to get to your session.
If you’re choosing to schedule your session here, it’s likely because you love it! The people who choose to live in the mountains do, too – by hiring local you’re supporting a photographer who loves this special place just as much as you do. There’s also flexibility if you need to reschedule. Locals live here so if you find you need to request a reschedule, we’ll still be here for ya.
And finally, you’ll have access to THE BEST spots. Like this Alex & Cody’s session below – this was on our private property, which you have exclusive access to when ya book with us. It’s just 40 minutes south of Breck – with beautiful views the entire way!
Have a friendly conversation to make sure you vibe.
Of equal importance to jiving with the style (see the first note above), you gotta love the person! Make the time to have a conversation – even via email or text is totally fine. You want to genuinely like each other!
Consider booking the same photographer for your engagement session AND wedding!
Most Breckenridge engagement photographers (like us!) include a complimentary engagement session in their wedding collections. Read: FREE ENGAGEMENT SESSION. This is not only a great value, but it’s the perfect opportunity to get to know your photographer even more. It’s like we always say – how much more fun does it sound to feel like friends on your wedding day than to have just met for the first time?
What do you think? We hope this was helpful. While you’re here, Enjoy Alex + Cody’s playful engagement gallery!
