Our photographer for the Alexander Homestead, Garret Price from Carolina Portrait Designs, has some great insight on why it is important to hire a photographer familiar with your wedding venue...


"Selecting a photographer that is familiar with the venue you have chosen for your wedding is very important for numerous reasons but in an effort not to lose your attention, I’ll just touch on a couple highlights.  First and foremost, they do not need to spend any time familiarizing themselves with the area.  Having had the luxury of working with Alexander Homestead over the past 3 years, I know where the sun will be at any time on any day of the year.  Therefore, on your wedding day, when it is time to do your formal images, we know exactly where all the best areas to photograph are so we can move quickly and efficiently to make the most of our time!  Secondly, piggy backing off the previous reason, is time management.  We cannot stress enough how important time management is on your wedding day, and let’s be honest you’ll probably get behind and that is perfectly ok.  By hiring a professional photographer that is familiar with your wedding venue, you increase your chances of being able to get a variety of imagery in a short amount of time and help decrease the amount of stress on your big day."
