Get started finding your perfect wedding photography team with the TIME + MONEY SAVING RESEARCH TIPS featured in today's show!

These are my top photography / videography search guidelines and are the perfect place to start ...

But you’ll quickly discover that there’s so much more that goes into finding your perfect photographer:

  • Knowing intuitively when & how to NEGOTIATE PRICING + PACKAGE SPECIFICS,
  • Photography CONTRACT ESSENTIALS,
  • Creating a top-notch MASTER SHOT LIST,
  • Preparing for your ENGAGEMENT PHOTO SHOOT,
  • Should we do a "FIRST LOOK"?
  • VIDEOGRAPHY specifics ,
  • Is DIY PHOTOGRAPHY and/or videography an option - for your pre-wedding parties & events, rehearsal, or maybe even your wedding day? 
  • Actionable tips for DIY VIDEOGRAPHY from a bride who pulled it off (AND has an amazing wedding video to show for it!)
  • Is it OK to hire a "rookie" photographer who doesn’t have a ton of experience, or is that a horrible idea? 
  • What secrets & tips would a veteran wedding photographer share with you one on one, over coffee?

You’ll find the answers to all of those questions and so much more within the Wedding Planning Podcast Photography & Videography mini-planning package.  Get instant access AND save 75% when you visit wedpodcast.com

The pressure + hype behind discovering your dream WEDDING VENUE is very real.  In my professional opinion, your wedding venue is the most important strategic decision you'll make in the entire wedding planning process.  Why is your venue such a big deal? 

Multiple other wedding decisions are interdependent on the venue you choose.  Once you solidify the WHERE, your complete wedding day vision can really start to unfold. 

Complicating the process, wedding venues literally come in all sizes, prices, and styles.  The possibilities are endless, so it’s key that we go into the research process with a handful of streamlined search filters to dodge being overwhelmed with all the options.

In this workshop-style meeting, we'll review SIX important things to consider as you start shopping around for the perfect venue to host your wedding celebration.

Would you volunteer to host Thanksgiving for 40 people and then rush out to the store with no menu planned & no shopping list?

No way! 

You’d sit down and plan out a menu of app's & drinks, look up some recipes, and then make a detailed list of exactly what you need to buy.

So why on earth would you head out to a WEDDING FAIR / BRIDAL EXPO with absolutely no plan, and just "see what happens"?

Today on the Wedding Planning Podcast we’re going to take inventory of your priorities, and make a list of your top goals for your day spent at the wedding fair. 

This way you can MAXIMIZE your time spent with vendors and gathering inspiration, and minimize the stress & overwhelm factor of wandering through hundreds of booths full of noisy commotion. 

After our time together today, when the 15th DJ asks you if you want to dance, and the 22nd wedding planner asks you to spin their "wheel o' fun" ...

... you can confidently smile, say no thanks, and keep walking. 

To submit questions for an upcoming show, simply visit our website and leave me a voicemail! 

Due to the sheer volume of your love and support, we regretfully cannot personally reply to each submission ... you'll receive a reply via email if your submission is queued for an upcoming episode.

Today's show is just the beginning of dozens of strategic recorded meetings that walk you through exactly how to identify your top priorities & plan your dream wedding!  Learn more and sign up for a totally free 3-day trial of my revolutionary digital wedding planning package by visiting www.wedpodcast.com

Cheers to you!
