Are you looking for the absolute best NYC Wedding Venue to celebrate your soon to be blissful marriage? If so, you’re probably in the early stages of your NYC Wedding Planning venture. I’m sure you have millions of questions regarding the next steps you should take when planning your wedding.
One of the many steps in your Wedding Planning experience will involve hiring your NYC Wedding Photographer. This is the absolute most important step. This step is vital because your wedding photography will be the most valued asset when your wedding night is over. Once the food has been eaten, the band has packed up their gear, your guests have gone home and the venue has locked their doors – you will still have the joyous and tangible memories contained within your Wedding Photography (you can even consider a handcrafted Wedding Album).
So, you’ve found an NYC Wedding Photographer whose portfolio is everything you want. The next step will involve the consultation. Here’s a list of 10 Questions to Ask Your Wedding Photographer. There is a question I get asked quite frequently. The question is “Have You Shot At My Wedding Venue Before” – let’s delve into the answer, hidden behind door number three!
While sometimes it’s nice to have a photographer familiar with a venue, it’s 100% not necessary. A fresh pair of eyes can bring an original aesthetic to your photography. If you work with a photographer who has shot at your venue hundreds of times, most likely they will take the same type of shots that they took for the many weddings before. With a photographer that is new to a venue, you get originality with a unique composition.
It isn’t a bad thing at all to have a wedding photographer that is familiar with a venue, nor is it a bad thing to have a photographer that isn’t familiar with a venue.
Here’s an NYC Wedding Venue list of places I’ve had the pleasure of shooting over the past thirteen years: The William Vale, The Rainbow Room, Battery Gardens, The Plaza Hotel, Guastavinos, Chelsea Piers, Tribeca Rooftop Wedding, Top of the Rock, various locations in Westchester, the Loeb Boathouse, the Surf Club on the Sound, Central Park, Pier Sixty, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Saint Francis Xavier Church, 26 Bridge, and various locations throughout Brooklyn. This is just to name a few.
Happy NYC Wedding Planning!
