Tips on Hiring a Wedding Photographer from a Photographer

How to Pick Your Wedding Photographer Over the years, I've been emailed, called and chatted up about my wedding photography services. More often than not, I book a wedding when I receive an email or a call from a bride inquiring about her date. I've been lucky to work with some simply wonderful, kind and amazing clients who are respectful of my time and who value my work. Rarely am I emailed by a bride who is "price checking" all of the photographers in my area and has no real interest in hiring me.

Arkansas Boudoir – Little Rock Boudoir Session

Sophisticated Arkansas Boudoir Photography Recently, I shot a fabulous boudoir session. My client came prepared with a few simple outfits, a lot of ideas and a great attitude.

Here are a few of my favorites from her Arkansas boudoir session: ...
