Photo focus By Alyssa Schmitt Finding the right wedding photographer is a unique challenge for a couple. Unlike with the other vendors hired for a wedding, the couple – to a certain extent – won’t know what they’ve invested in until the photos are printed weeks after the ceremony. That means careful research and being selective – both in artistic style and personal demeanor – are important when choosing the photographer. Local photographers from Lindsey Beckwith Photography in Cleveland, Mystic Image Cinema and Photography in Broadview Heights and Imagine It Photography in Cleveland lend some advice for couples searching to capture their big day.

One of the things to consider is the number of hours (a couple) will need a photographer. A lot of photographers are hourly, so they’re like eight or 10 or 12 (hours). But if you want all-day coverage – getting-ready shots all the way until late in the reception, (or) if you’re doing a sparkler send-off or something like that – you may need more than that, so you may want to look for a photographer that includes all-day coverage or that you can add the additional hours. – Stephanie Uptmor, owner, Imagine It Photography

When you’re looking for a photographer, basically make sure that you review a lot of their work. ... You want to look at a complete wedding, not just a couple of pictures on their Instagram or on their website because you want to see how they can handle different types of lighting situations. – Lindsey Beckwith, owner, Lindsey Beckwith Photography
