  1. Personality

    When selecting a wedding photographer you are selecting more than just a photographer for your wedding day.  You are hiring a wedding photographer that will be with you, your family and friends all day on your wedding day.  Personality is a huge part of the selection process and should not be overlooked or discounted in any way.

Your Wedding photographer’s personality can set the tone for your entire wedding day and your bridal party.  Ultimately it can impact your wedding photography altogether.

2. Wedding Photography Price 

While price is usually a factor when your selecting your Telluride wedding photographer, it should not be the only thing that matters.  All too often we hear horror stories from brides who made a decision for their wedding photography based purely on price.  I truly believe you get what you pay for and when it’s all said and done, your wedding photography will be all you have to remember your wedding day.  Price is based on service to you, talent and experience.

3. Wedding albums

In this crazy, digital age, wedding albums are a must.  What will you do with all your images from your wedding photographer?  Most people opt to place them in a beautifully designed wedding album. This is a service your wedding photographer should provide for you.  Don’t underestimate the importance of a wedding album from your wedding day.  This is your first family heirloom and your one keepsake you will have forever to remember your wedding.  In this digital age, computers die and hard drives can fail.  Provide your family with a beautiful wedding album.

When selecting a wedding photographer you should look for an album that best represents you and your new family.  Wedding albums come in all shapes and sizes.  Questions to ask your wedding photographer:

  1. How many pages come in the wedding album?
  2. How many images will be in the wedding album?
  3. What leather options are available from my wedding album?

4. Coverage 

Something often overlooked when selecting a wedding photographer is the number of hours that will be offered during the coverage of your Telluride wedding.  Real Life Photographs has been in the wedding photography business more than 10 years, and can help determine the adequate number of hours based on your wishes for your wedding day.  We are familiar with travel times between locations and never want you to feel rushed or stressed on your wedding day.  Their number one goal is your wedding day experience, all the while providing you and yours beautiful images to cherish for a lifetime.

5.  Number of Wedding Photographers

How many wedding photographers will be at your event?  Depending on your party size, will dictate whether you need two photographers.  Although, regardless of size, two Telluride wedding photographers ensures that one wedding photographer is focused on working with your group while the second wedding photographer is covering the details .  4 eyes covering your wedding day is better than two!  We find that having two local Telluride wedding photographers at your event, who knows the area well, can best meet your wedding photography needs while ensuring that nothing gets missed from your big day!  It’s those little moments in between the big moments that we strive to capture.  For example, the look your groom will give you as you’re walking down the aisle, or that moment your father sees you for the first time in your wedding dress, or your mom’s expression as your dancing with your dad on your wedding day. Whether you have one wedding photographer or two, Real Life Photographs is there to capture your wedding day in an unobtrusive, fun way!Ridgway Wedding Photography

One of my faves 🙂

Telluride Winter Elopement

Telluride Winter Elopement, Gotta love it! Have I told you lately that I love my job?!!

A Telluride winter elopement is one of the most romantic things a couple can do, in my opinion! A majestic, snowy setting with the one that you love.  It doesn’t get much better than that- eh?

A Telluride winter elopement allows you the time to travel to different locations, to have your photographs taken with no timeline!

I love capturing the little moments in between the moments.  This gorgeous couple didn’t even know I was photographing them at the time.

Telluride winter elopements allow you the time to have fun and be your self!  Without a large guest list you can make your day about the things that truly matter. However the two of you define this.

LOVE.

From the first phone conversation I had with John, I knew my photography style would be a wonderful fit for him and his wife to be.  John and Derleen have been dreaming about getting married in Telluride for a couple of years and thought that winter would be perfect!  They actually wanted to be married in a blizzard!  And a blizzard is what they got 🙂

Catching snowflakes on her tongue! Love this!

They braved the cold weather!  With their hand full of guests, we took a couple of photographs in the sideways snow and then headed down to Allred’s Restaurant where we were able to finish their portraits inside where it was warm!  They had an amazing intimate meal and I headed home.  Their day was exactly what they wanted and it was an honor to be a part of it!
