One of the most challenging tasks when planning a wedding is finding the right photographer. If you appreciate photography, then it will be very important to find that the right photographer for your wedding day. It can be difficult and time consuming to find a photographer in your local area who is available, in your price range, and captures the style you want.
How do you find the right photographer? Unless you already know a photographer, chances are you will either go to a bridal show or surf the web to find one. Neither of these two options are necessarily easy nor end in a successful match.
About Photographer Central
I have have found a great company, Photographer Central, who has made a comprehensive directory of professional photographers that will help ease the time consuming task of searching for a photographer online. Photographer Central lets you search by many filters to narrow your search by location, price range, style, second shooter availability, willing to travel and even provides photo studio service.
Photographer Central has an “add to favorites” button which comes in very handy – you don’t have to worry about bookmarking or writing down a photographer’s website that you like. Once you do find a group of photographers that you would like to contact, simply click through their profile and easily find any contact information.
One of the things I really liked about this site is the layout. As you scroll down the webpage, you can see 3-4 pictures of the photographer’s work without ever having to click into their profile. An obvious time saver for sorting through photographers in your area.

It is quite dreary out with the sun hidden behind clouds, so featuring a cheery teal and coral wedding is the perfect cure for such a gray day! Cariad Photography captured some amazing shots of this gorgeous photogenic couple and wedding venue, but I will let the photographer and bride tell you all about the day.
Teal and Coral Wedding ~ Photographer Remarks
“We love weddings with beautiful colors, especially if the colors are coral, pink, orange and touches of teal here and there. This bride and groom chose Chota Falls, in the North Georgia Mountains, for their special day. This gorgeous estate is one of the premier wedding venues in the State of Georgia. With it’s 100 acres there are so many beautiful places for the photography of a wedding. Their ceremony was held beneath the 100 foot waterfall. Their wedding was a perfect combination of rustic and elegance. The bride’s bouquet was truly a piece of art and set off her lovely dress. This couple was a pure delight to photograph and we really enjoyed being part of their wedding day. One of the most fun parts of the night was when two of the bridesmaids did a rap instead of a speech. Everyone loved it! It sure made the speeches a little bit different from the usual.”
What were the highlights from the ceremony and reception?
“Sharing a secret meeting with my future husband before the ceremony and having happy tears together. Laughing as we said our vows and how perfect the weather turned out for us. During the reception I loved dancing with my family and sitting around the bonfire after.”
What did you give your bridesmaids as a gift?
I gave them a personalized bag with their initials in teal that included a tank top of their favorite animal on it, homemade necklace that they could also wear during the ceremony, a personalized name tumbler, and a personalized koozie in chevron pattern in the wedding colors.
Please describe the bridesmaids’ attire. What designer did they wear? Tell us about their shoes.
They all wore mismatched dresses by Bill Levkoff in a coral color. I let them wear their own shoes, but asked that they all kept to a light tan color.
Describe the Groom’s attire. Which designer did he wear?
The Groom bought his grey Calvin Klein tuxedo from men’s warehouse. He paired it with a tie and vest and wore black shoes.
What was the overall theme for the ceremony and reception?
Our theme was a teal and coral wedding color scheme in a country chic style with touches of burlap.
What did the groom give to his groomsmen as a gift?
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Kauai Hawaii. We stayed at an VRBO tree house near tunnel beach.
