Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of Portland-ME 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 Portland-ME wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Portland-ME 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 Portland-ME wedding day by.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my Portland-ME 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 Portland-ME wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
