💍loves wedding stories enough to keep telling them since 1994?  
If so, I might be the photographer you never knew you needed! 
But FIRST, let's take a Photographer Compatibility quiz and THEN follow Five Key Steps to hiring your wedding photographer. 
                                                                    STEP ONE
Does wedding photography rank at the top of the list as a must-have, somewhere in the middle as a nicety, or down at the bottom as a "meh, not really for me"? 

Your wedding is personal, so giving my expertise, full attention, and heart while photographing it allows me to capture the best memories.  The emotional moments that go along with weddings have kept me more than 20 years in the industry!

The best images capture the intimacy of a moment and flow elegantly from one to another to tell the story of your most special day.   If they didn't, why would you keep looking at them and smiling?  

Your wedding is full of some of the most special and important memories of your life.  Is it as important to you, as it is to me, that a photographer captures it for you?  Let's make sure we're within your budget, Step TWO...
               STEP TWO
Having your wedding professionally captured is important, so you're here.  Yay!
Make sure you get the most out of your budget for your wedding photography.  Wedding websites will tell you photography takes 10-12% of your budget, second to the cost of the reception.
It’s not just a few photos of you and your husband looking beautiful and happy, it's a beautiful story of your wedding - from getting ready and smiling with your bridesmaids, to the emotion on your dad's face as he gives you away. It's capturing the beautiful details on your day after hours of planning, the beautiful flowers, your dress, and the venue.  It's capturing the day, the emotion of your guests the groom, all the way through to that first dance.  This isn't just any story, it's your story.
Don’t regret not hiring a professional wedding photographer to capture your story.
Studio Raymo offers customizable collections ranging from $995 for intimate affairs up to $3,000 for our top collection experience.  We offer 0% interest payment plans so you get what you want!
STEP THREE
Extroverts unite!  I like to have fun and cut up.  I like to tell cheezy dad jokes and love learning new ones.  I'm an 80's fanatic and am often quoting movies from out in left field.  I use all that to break the ice with people I don't know and elicit great emotions from those shy ones.
Couples often overlook the intensely personal nature of wedding photography and don’t realize how much time we will spend together and how closely we’ll be interacting all day. I will be with you and your loved ones for hours on one of the most special and emotional days of your entire life. Depending on how your schedule is constructed, they may even spend more time in close contact with you than your future husband!
You need a photographer who makes you feel at ease. I can be that person, able to capture your joy and tears without being intrusive.  With my experience, I can step in and help give you confidence about your appearance, offer tips for the day, or suggest alternative plans in case of bad weather or delays because I've already planned for it.  I want you to feel like you can trust me to be kind and helpful and diffuse stress rather than add to it.
Notice I say 'I' and 'me' more than photographer?  That's because my relationship with my clients is of utmost importance and that's why meeting in person is SO important!  There are some folks at the bottom of this page that kinda dig me too.
STEP FOUR
Hiring a professional photographer ensures you get the best quality pictures, but cameras are only a small part of the equation.  Experienced professionals know how to get the most out of their cameras. You want to hire a wedding photographer because their skills are as important as the equipment they use. Anyone might have a nice SLR with a zoom lens, but usually, they will be restrained by not having the experience to capture the raw moments or anticipate them. The equipment is just as important as is the person behind the camera who knows how to draw out the special emotion between you and your new husband.   Check out my Benefits page for more, opening in a new tab, and come back here for Step FIVE!  
STEP FIVE
If you are still reading, let me congratulate you again.  This means you want a spectacular wedding photography experience.  You want your wedding to be a romantic day.  You want to have everything go smoothly.  You want to have a great time without worrying about your wedding photos. You want to see all your guests and have them also have a great time.
  
I often read posts on Facebook wedding groups or run into someone around Nashville who has a wedding photography horror story and it PAINS me.  It really does because I think my experience, my processes, and my way of doing business could have protected them.
Wes and Lenorea below got a bad vibe from their hired photographer and good ones from me, so they switched and invested more into their wedding photography (See step TWO).  Kayla and her husband, below, were GHOSTED by their photographer and never saw a single image of their wedding.  I met Kayla and I'll show you how I turned their frowns upside down.
I want to help brides avoid horror stories so much that I created an email series to talk about 7 HUGE Mistakes and how I can help you avoid them.
Now, we've completed the Five Key Steps to hiring a wedding photographer, time for a pop quiz.  Click on the button below to answer just a few questions to see if I'm the right photographer for you.
