If you are planning your Big Day in Philadelphia, you might have already discovered the fact that there is such a huge variety of amazing venues, artistic photographers, mind blowing floral designers to choose from. So where do you even start looking for the right person?
First take your time to interview all of the candidates you like. Here at Anastasia Romanova Photography, we never rush our clients and don't make them book on the spot. It is understandable that great decisions cannot always be made on a fly and some amount of time in required for that.
Second, make sure you can make a good connection with your photographer. This is not the person that will only take professional photographs at your wedding day, but someone who you will be spending the most of your day with. Make sure you feel comfortable with you photographer and can easily connect on a personal level.
Third, ask your wedding photographer how familiar he or she is with the type of the venue you are getting married. If you are having your wedding ceremony at a very dark church, ask your photographer to share a gallery with a similar ceremony location to make sure they can perfectly document a wedding ceremony in low light.
Fourth, if you are planning to have your wedding day portraits taken in Philadelphia, ask your photographer for location suggestions. Ideally, ask them to show you some sample work from those locations taken at the same time of the year as your wedding date. If you would like to have a deeper look into our portfolio, we would be happy to share with you some stunning wedding galleries that highlight some of the most spectacular Old City and center city locations in Philadelphia. Among our biggest favorites are the First and Second National Banks of the US, Merchants Exchange Building, City Hall, Broad Street, Rodin Museum, 18th Century Gardens, Carpenter's Hall, Washington Square Park, Fairmount Park and others.
