3 “Next Steps” into Planning Your Wedding After You Book a Photographer…

Hello all! This is Kathryn Miller, the wedding florist!

Today I wanted to chat about wedding photographers! Once you book your photographer… what should you do? Well, this blog post will list the 3 “next steps” after you book your photographer.

  1. Find a videographer. Photographers and videographers go hand-in-hand. If you are wanting a videographer, chat with your photographer to see who they have worked with before. Your photographer will have to work with the videographer all day long so you want to know who not only does great work but also works well with others.
  2. Research keep sakes. There are many ways to remember your wedding day. Of course, there are photos, but ask your photographers what else they offer. Some photographer offer wedding albums as a keep sake. Start researching ways you want to remember your wedding other than just photos. (Hint – there are floral options available as well)
  3. Follow them on socials. I love recommending following your wedding vendors on social media! It helps you see what is going on in their life but also other things that they are promoting in their business. I know I try to educate on flower types, centerpiece options, etc so maybe your photographer will suggest other options.

Again, there are other things to do after you book your photographer, but here are the next 3 options.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

It’s about more than hiring someone to hold a create a bouquet and a few centerpieces. Wedding floral design is about carefully crafting and capturing the beauty of you and your significant other in a way that beautifully tells the story of your love.
