One of the many awesome things about this career of being a wedding photographer is that you get to meet some really incredible people. People that you just “connect” with on all levels and it doesn’t take much for you to be able to look at them as more than just clients, but as friends.
Before our couple booked us, they had a few questions that they wanted to ask us before making their decision and since we already really liked each other from our initial phone call, we offered to meet them at a nice outdoor restaurant for lunch & some beers and to go over everything.
We did and it was absolutely great. Not only did we land the booking but more importantly, we really got to know our couple. This meant that on the day, there were no awkward introductions and they fell completely at ease with us working around them. Having this “pre-meeting” is not always possible – but when it is, it’s worth it. It makes everyone feel so much more at home together.
