The goal of wedding planning and coordination is all about making the day as easy and stress-free as possible for the happy couple. We have decided to be as helpful as possible and give you as many tips as we can, So we’ve started a vendor interview series! We will be interviewing different vendors from different areas of expertise and asking them the questions that all couples need to know.
Today we are interviewing Lindsey Parker from TOLMAN MEDIA! A photographer is absolutely crucial to your wedding since they are the ones that will capture the wedding in a snapshot forever, so asking the right questions and choosing the right photographer is a must. Here is our interview with Lindsey:
What common mistakes do you see couples making?
Hiring a photographer and videographer from 2 different companies. When you hire a team, you get cohesiveness and consistency of style. You also save money!
What’s the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Knowing what is important to you on your wedding day is actually a task in itself! Taking the time to list out what is most important to you, and then prioritizing your budget around that. Then getting really detailed about what you want photos of and which moments you truly want to be captured on video. Then working out a timeline to really know how many hours of photo and video you need. If you think these things through ahead of time, you can communicate that to your vendors and really create the day you are hoping for.
What don’t couples know about your business that they need to know?
We love being a part of your day, and our goal is to not only meet your expectations but to exceed them!
What questions should couples be asking that they don’t know to ask?
Do you have a backup plan for sickness or injury? How fast is your turnaround time? How do you maintain consistency in your final product? Do I have the printing rights to my photos?
What is your best piece of advice for couples planning a wedding?
Keep it genuine, keep it you, keep it fun, and capture all of that through photos and videos!
What’s the most unusual wedding you’ve ever had?
We did a 3-day Pakistani wedding that was so much fun! Then she referred her sister to us and we got to do another one 6 months later. We love the diversity of weddings!
What was the most memorable wedding you ever worked, and why?
We had a client contact us 2 weeks before her wedding day and let us know that her photographer and videographer backed out of her wedding. We were able to jump in and fill that role. The couple was so sweet and genuine and the bride was so grateful to have a nerve-wracking situation turn out so well. They made it a joy to be a part of their special day. A few weeks after the wedding, the father of the groom passed away, and we were able to pass on any and all footage we had of him to help them maintain his memory. They were so appreciative, and we were grateful to be a part of that.
