Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How can couples find reviews of San Jose 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 San Jose wedding photographers for their own wedding.
Q: How can couples find San Jose photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for San Jose wedding photographers to showcase their best engagement photography work. These awards are given to photographers who prove that they have an ability to be creative, artistic, and intuitive while working on-location with couples who are newly engaged.
Q: Can a wedding photojournalist create artistic portraits on my San Jose 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 San Jose wedding photographers who have earned Artistic Guild awards for portrait and detail images.
