Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Atlanta wedding photographers?
A: We call them Client Letters. At the WPJA, we decided more than 20 years ago to avoid incorporating those third-person testimonials and endorsements that are found all too often in advertisements. Instead, we elevated our listings with the use of Client Letters, which represent the actual words and feelings of the clients who booked those Atlanta wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Atlanta wedding?
A: There are many WPJA photographers who are able to help you out at a moment's notice. We understand that sometimes love happens and there's simply no time to lose. We can ensure that you can get married as quickly as possible — and have incredible photographs to remember your Atlanta wedding day by.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Atlanta wedding day?
A: While wedding photojournalists strive to capture candid moments on the wedding day, our photographers also are skilled artists who can compose powerful portraits. If you have a specific vision of what types of images you want from your wedding day, look at the top-ranked Atlanta wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.

Dearest Ben, We've run out of superlatives to describe your brilliant work. All we can say now, again and always is thanks for the beautiful pictures. Hiring you was definitely the best decision by far about our wedding. Planning for our big day took a completely different course once we booked you, as if the bar had been "raised" because of the quality and standard your photos would attribute. We were more excited about our photos than anything, the marriage itself being a given. We're so glad your availability opened up for our date because it could've been the biggest regret of our lives had it not. You are an incredible photographer with pure talent, dedication, passion and humility. You've always given us more than what was required of a professional. Thanks for having been such a pleasure to work with, for your tireless spirit, dedication to the art and continuing to inspire us with your work

Cindy: I can’t tell you how much we appreciate all the wonderful photos you took— somehow, they are all both absolutely stunning and truly capture the people, emotions, and experience of our wedding. None of the photos feel forced, and they all make me smile. I can’t tell you how much it means to see myself in these photos— looking natural, beautiful, and, above all, happy!
