Daniel and McKenzie were married in the LDS Draper Utah Temple. They are lovely humans. I fell in love with them instantly. My favorite phone call of all time came from McKenzie. She called me a week before her wedding. “Can you just be mean at my wedding? I need you to be mean.” She said. I smiled and laughed a little knowing exactly what she was saying and why she was saying it. “If you need me to be assertive, I have you covered. I don’t do mean well, but I know how to get and keep attention to get people to listen.” She sighed and said, “Okay because we were just at a wedding last week and it was like herding cats. The photographer couldn’t get anything done because she couldn’t get people’s attention.” I assured her that I have developed this particular talent over the last decade from experience. To be the best Utah wedding photographer, it boils down to how well you work with people. Anyone can learn about their equipment behind a computer screen, watching youtube. The difference between an amateur and the best utah wedding photographer is not just the price, it is the experience that each one brings to the table. You pay a premium to a professional for peace of mind that they will be able to manage any situation at hand. The best utah wedding photographer has learned how to manage crying children, making crying children laugh and keeping mom and bride stress free during the process. Being the best Utah wedding photographer is managing more than your camera, it is about managing everyone in the group, the environment and the mood. The best Utah wedding photographer will create the atmosphere that is enjoyable, stress free and fun so you come away only remembering the love you felt on that day.
The best compliment I have ever received as a photographer also came from this wedding when I was finishing up photographing the reception at Tucano’s in Provo Utah, the father said to me, “Well, if you don’t know how to take pictures you sure act like you do!” The truth is a professional photographer knows their place and isn’t afraid of their authority to get the job done and are able to command attention because of their confidence in their talent.
