There are many traits that couples look for in a wedding photographer. What are they?

Communication Skills

The least amount of stress added is ideal when you’re planning. You will want a photographer who can communicate well and understand all their needs and expectations. They should be able to answer questions, provide information, and make suggestions to help the couple plan their wedding.

Couples want a photographer who is patient, understanding, and able to work with them to create the perfect wedding photos. They want someone who will take the time to listen to their ideas and help them create heirloom photos that they can cherish for years to come.

Attention to Detail

Who doesn’t want a photographer who pays attention to the smallest of details? They want someone who will take the time to capture the little moments and special memories they will cherish forever.


Having a flexible photographer who is willing to work with you to accommodate any special requests or changes. You’ll want someone open to creative ideas and willing to work with them to create the perfect wedding photos.


Hiring a photographer with a passion for their craft. Having someone who truly loves what they do and enjoys being a part of the wedding day. Also, you want to be sure that the photographer is invested in capturing every moment of the day and creating beautiful images that will last a lifetime. Not all photographers are the same, you’ll want to hire someone who specializes in Weddings.


You’ll also want a self-accountable photographer who takes the time to ensure that their photos are the best they can be. They want someone who takes responsibility for their work and is willing to make adjustments and improvements if needed.

"Hire Magan if you want beautiful pictures. She had us literally tearing up at how stunning all her photos of us are and you don’t spend your entire wedding posing for pictures. Magan was hands down the best choice we made (other than marrying my husband!) for our wedding. You’ll love her personality and you will never regret hiring her for any occasion."

"Magan is a pro. If you're looking for artist to deliver on the biggest day of your life (wedding) she's your woman. She's honest, fair and fun to hang around with. I never write reviews but needed to for Evoke as the caliber of her work is amazing. It also helps she's leaned in digitally and can deliver your photos back in a seamless and easy way. Well done Magan. Keep on making people look like movie stars. :)"

"I can't say enough good things about my experience with Magan. I was in the market for a photographer to capture a special moment and Magan was a joy to work with throughout the entire process. In order to look comfortable in photos, it is so crucial to have an upbeat, energetic personality that simultaneously can break any awkwardness with conversation or humor and Magan fulfills that in spades! Her approach to personalize and tailor your experience to match your needs makes her an easy recommendation."

Our engagement photo session, with Magan, was an absolute blast. We are so appreciative of Magan’s help and guidance throughout our wedding planning and forever GRATEFUL to have had her and her husband with us on our wedding day. Magan and Jared were perfect for us and our wedding group, and a huge part in making it all happen. The pictures from our wedding day left us speechless. We can’t stop looking at them. She captured every moment. We’re so thankful to not only have gained a photographer for life, but also a friend.
