Your Photographer and Location Site

Weekly Wedding Tip
brought to you by
"Ask your photographer to visit your ceremony and reception sites in advance so she's familiar with the space and lighting needs."

I think this is a great tip and maybe your photographer has even been to your location site for a previous wedding. While at the NJ Wedding Salon recently - I was at a photographers booth and a newly engaged couple came up and asked if he was familiar with a particular reception site. He was and even starting suggesting the best places for some great shots. If your photographer has already been there, you might even be able to see some of those photos if they have them in their portfolio. Has your photographer been to your location site for a previous wedding? Or will you be asking them to visit the site to familiarize themselves with the location?
