Recently I was approached by Triad Weddings Magazine and asked to write the photo editorial for their Spring/Summer 2016 issue. I was honored to have been chosen and quickly began brainstorming just what to write about. There were literally hundreds of ideas that began to flood my mind, but I wanted something a little different… Something that would really help couples figure out which photographer to hire amongst the plethora of options. After much consideration I settled on a rather "simple" topic, but chose to include several areas that could really help in the quest to connect with the photographer that would best fit into your dream wedding plan!
Over the next few weeks I'm going to be sharing the different aspects of the article with you, here on the JTP blog. Here are the topics we'll cover...
Part 1 - Introduction
Part 2 - The Three "P's"
Part 3 - Hobbyist vs. Full-Time Photographers
Part 4 - The Royal Treatment
Part 5 - A Connection
Part 6 - Added Value
