“ ...From the time of our first meeting, the walk thru, & up until the big day they were such a pleasure to work with! It was all a seamless process. I can tell how serious they take their work and they listen to every detail you want captured on your day... Would definitely recommend J.J. Au'Clair & hope to work with them again in the future!”

"As a wedding planner & the bride, I only have positive things to say of Janelle & Jordyn. From the time of our first meeting, the walk thru, & up until the big day, they were such a pleasure to work with! It was all a seamless process. I can tell how serious they take their work, and they listen to every detail you want captured on your day. Unfortunately, my bridal party photos were a bit rushed due to an unforeseen incident, but Janelle & Jordyn worked through it painlessly & still captured the shots we wanted! Not only were they easy to work with for me, but they work well with other vendors, too! Would definitely recommend J.J. Au'Clair & hope to work with them again in the future!"

Highly recommend!"

1. Think about your setting (location, colors, etc), and choose a style of photography and videography that you love and will go well with your vision. For example, If you’re eloping on a moody mountainside, you might want a style that is darker to match the theme. Also think about your preferred medium, some photographers only shoot digitally, but there are lots of hybrid and film photographers (and yes, even videographers) out there too! This will definitely offer you choices in the aesthetic and feel of your imagery.
2. Talk to other vendors, chances are if you love your venue or florist, they’re going to know some incredible photographers (or videographers) for your big day. You can call them directly, or just check who they've worked with in the past via Instagram, Pinterest, or their blog. Also, if a vendor refers you, tell the photographer or videographer so they know who sent you!
3. Ask your friends. If you know someone who’s tied the knot in the past few years, asking them about their photographer or videographer will usually get you a nice starting point (or tell you where not to go…). This also give you a direct line of access to potentially viewing your friends' album or video directly. If you love what you see, you're headed in the right direction.
4. Do some research and look online at photographers and videographers local to your area. You may be able to find someone local who is featured on your favorite bridal blog, or who is a verified vendor with your favorite wedding directory. Some photographers or studios offer both photography and video, so decide if thats something you're interested in or not.
5. Find them on Instagram and take a long look at their work, voice, and style. Social media is a great way to get to know your photographer or videographer before ever even meeting with them. Chances are, if you love their personality, and enjoy going through their highlights, you're going to enjoy having them around on your wedding.
6. Reach out for your wedding dates, and ask about setting up a consultation or interview with your favorite photographers. Most photographers offer a free consultation, but if they don't offer that, don't hesitate to ask them if they're willing to meet in person of via phone call for an interview. If they're long distance, video chat is also an option. 
7. Make sure your personalities mesh well. You’ll be spending most of your big day with them! You want to make sure you enjoy their presence, and that they make you feel comfortable. This is easily gauged at the consultation, or at your engagement session (if you choose to do that with them).
8. Ask to look at a full gallery or two, and if you’re interested in prints or an album, ask about being able to see a sample product at your consultation.
9. Ask the important questions: “What are my photo and video rights?” “How will the imagery be delivered?” “When do you deliver the imagery?” This will help you be informed.
10. Book them! Couples tend to book their photographers and videographers in advance, so don't wait till the last minute. When you find the perfect photographer, videographer, or studio, jump on it. You'll want to ensure that your date is available. If they're already taken, ask for recommendations on other photographers and videographers that they believe you would mesh well with (they know the industry and should be able to help you find someone comparable).

How to Choose the Best Wedding Photographer or Videographer

There are so many photographers and videographers... how do you know you’ll get one who can create art out of moments, while letting everyone be authentically, distinctly, and beautifully themselves?
