"We sat down with a number of Regina wedding photographers when we were deciding who to choose for our 2011 Wedding, and Michelle from Fotobella definitely impressed us the most. We found her so easy to talk to and she was great to work with. She listened to our ideas then directed us on the day, which made the photography process so EASY! We love our Wedding pictures" Diane Wierl, Regina

 

" I heard about Fotobella from a friend and loved what I saw of their work. Unfortunately they were unable to do our wedding photographs as they had other commitments on that date, but I kept hold of their contact details and managed to book them for pictures of our newborn. The session and follow up was great with no issues what so ever, and what really sets them apart in my mind, is the quality of their work compared to other photographers we previously used. Also what appealed is that Fotobella are a team of Regina photographers, so generally availability is much better than when trying to schedule with a single photographer. I rate them 9 out of 10 ..only because I never give 10's to anyone " Debbie Kenny

 

'I have dealt with Fotobella for more than 3 years and in that time I have used them for both corporate and personal photography. I especially love the most recent session with my family, I had some great ideas for the shoot and I have to say the photographer I worked with knocked it out of the park as the end results were just amazing....better than I could ever have hoped for! I give them 10 out of 10 for sure!" Leanne Fisher , owner of Budget Blinds, Regina.

Here they share their first tip on choosing the right Regina Wedding Photographer for you:  

 

Choosing the right wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you'll make when planning your wedding. A good fit will result in images you'll cherish forever – and probably decorate with throughout your home. But if your wedding photos don't turn out well, you will be one unhappy newly wed couple!
 


Six tips for choosing your wedding photographer:

1. Create a candidate shortlist after browsing online portfolios. Just like fashion or nature photographers, or any other photojournalist or artist, each wedding photographer has their own distinct style. No matter how well regarded they are, if a photographer's style isn't your cup of tea, the photos won't be either.  

 

 

2. Meet candidates whose portfolios wowed you. It's important to set a meeting to make sure you click. Don't waste your time if you don't love their work.

"Make sure you have great chemistry with your photographer. Your photographer is going to be everywhere you are from the morning of your wedding day until the end of the night, so make sure you enjoy being around each other," advises Hung.

"If there's any awkwardness or uneasiness, there's no way your photographer will be able to produce the images you've seen in their portfolio for you," says adds.

You'll be seeing your photographer after the wedding too, so be sure you enjoy working together, and that they're easy to get in touch with.
 

 

3. Dig deeper. "When viewing a photographer's portfolio, ask to see a full and complete wedding set. A portfolio is a highly selective body of work consisting of ‘the best of the best.' By seeing a full wedding day, you should get a better idea of how the photographer's style translates into each part of the day: the morning, ceremony, portraits, and reception," explains Hung.

Ask questions to get a sense of their vision, experience and troubleshooting abilities, such as:

How would they describe their style? Compare their description to your own thoughts about their work.

How many years of experience do they have?
To that end, ask how they'd deal with potential wedding-day hurdles like rain, unwelcome creative direction from the mother of the bride, or a tiny 30-minute window in which they've got to capture group shots of a super-large family.

You'll probably be able to grasp how well seasoned a photographer is based on how they answer your questions, and what kind of solutions they provide for you!

 

 

4. Consider value when comparing quotes. Remember: You get what you pay for.
Although there may be exceptions, in general, better photographers cost more. How about those cut-rate ones? Well, they're cheap for a reason. That said, there are ways you can save money while hiring a solid pro.

Take a look at what's included in the price they quote you, whether products or a service, and consider its value to you. Often, wedding photographers will include a bunch of things like loose prints
, parent albums, Trash the Dress sessions and so on, but not all of these may be relevant to your needs or expectations. You can save by cutting some of the extras.

 

 

5. Ask for references. Narrowed it down to someone you want to hire? Ask for two or three references. Call and find out if the past customers are happy with the work the photographer did leading up to, during and after the wedding.

You can also do a Google search to see if anyone has any major complaints with your potential hire or if they have a good online reputation.

 

          

 

6. Hire someone you trust. The biggest favour a couple can do for themselves is to openly trust their vendors to do a great job. That includes the videographer, photographer, DJ, florists, card designers and so on. Give them some artistic freedom. When artists feel you trust them, we're confident in our skills and we thrive. I can't tell you how insecure it makes many photographers feel when they have a bride micromanaging their job.
Do your due diligence upfront and don't commit to a photographer you're anything less than 100 per cent confident in. And once you've made that decision and reached a coherent understanding of your mutual expectations for the event, step back and let them work their magic.

You'll enjoy your day more – now and for posterity.

"Photographers deal in things which are continually vanishing and when they have vanished there is no contrivance on earth which can make them come back again." ~Henri Cartier-Bresson 

Think about that statement. Times are constantly changing, babies are being born, children are always growing, teens are graduating, daughters and sons going off and getting married, and sadly peoples lives come to a close . What do we have to remind us of all the special moments in our lives? Well we have our memories and we have our photos.

Do you want to leave capturing those memories to just anyone? Sure you or your buddy have a fancy digital camera, but do you know how to use it effectively? Can you interpret how the ambient light will affect the overall image? This is where the team of expert at Fotobella Photography really shine, and you are not risking anything when you choose them as your Regina photographer. 

Michelle Strawford of Fotobella took those award winning images and her philosophy is shared by the Fotobella team of 4 amazing Regina photographers  "Photography is my passion," Strawford said. "The more I learn, the more I long to learn and challenge myself. Photography style changes like fashion. You must stay on top of it! You must be passionate about weddings, people and photography (not necessarily in that order!) to make it in the photography industry." Photographers can't fake it, Strawford emphasized. "If you don't love it, it will show."

 

So it is clear that Fotobella stands apart from the competition and nothing showcases that more than the images that are the end result of their creative passion!  

Whether is be for capturing simple moments at a corporate event...like this shot at the most recent  Trusted Regina partners social 

 

 

To absolutely stunning portraits...

 

 

 

Family pictures 'with a twist' like these amazing retro themed photographs, with this impossibly cute Regina family!   

 

To capturing forever the tiny adorable details of your children's all too brief infancy

 

And capturing those tiny and special details of your special day ..in ways that make the mundane and normal...seem magical!
