Figuring out what to do after getting engaged can be daunting. To make the process smoother, we’ve compiled a list of essential tips for newly engaged couples, with a focus on one of the most crucial aspects: finding and booking your Asheville wedding photographer!

Savor the Moment

Before diving into wedding planning, take some time to enjoy being engaged! This time is SO sweet. Share the news with family and friends, celebrate the love you share, and bask in the joy of this significant milestone. Seriously, soak it all in! The wedding world will tell you otherwise, but there is no rush to jump right into planning the next thing.

Discuss Your Vision:

Sit down with your partner and discuss your vision for the wedding day. Think about all of your favorite things and how it can influence your wedding style! Not just aesthetically, but also functionally. Do you want a wedding weekend with lots of activities? Or would you rather have an intimate dinner party following a sunset ceremony? Understanding your preferences will help guide your decisions throughout the planning process.

Set a Budget:

Establishing a wedding budget early on is KEY. Determine how much you’re willing to spend on each aspect of your wedding, based on what is of upmost importance to you – including your Asheville wedding photographer 😉 This will help you narrow down your options and make informed decisions.

Find the Perfect Asheville Wedding Photographer:

Capturing the very essence of your wedding day requires a skilled ~ and compatible ~ photographer. There are some photographers who will stage, direct, and pose all day long, and others that won’t do any of that in any capacity. Then there are some right in the middle (hi, it’s me! 👋🏼 Your local Asheville documentary style photographer). Wedding photographers and venues are the first vendors to get booked up, so it’s important to get those locked in quickly.
