Tips and advice for meeting wedding vendors with Chicagoland wedding photographer Kara Evans.

I’m Kara.
When I'm not photographing weddings, you can usually find me in my home office with snuggly puppies at my feet! Grab a drink (a cup of decaf, mojito, or a glass of rosé if you're like me), kick up your feet, and stay awhile!

Tips and advice for meeting wedding vendors with Chicagoland wedding photographer Kara Evans.This season of the year is very full when it comes to the lives of newly engaged couples, their families, and wedding vendors… It’s a time of meeting, planning, and getting to know one another! As a wedding vendor myself, I think it is so important to establish relationships with potential clients. I truly believe this… I’m in the business of building relationships, not just taking pretty pictures! So, when it comes to prospective clients meeting their potential wedding vendors, I have a little advice!

First, I think it’s so important to ASK QUESTIONS! Whether you’re meeting in person over coffee or via a phone or FaceTime consult, you owe it to yourself – and your investment in your wedding day – to ask questions! Believe me, you’ll be so happy you did, and vendors love answering your questions to ensure that everyone is on the same page.

Another piece of advice I can offer is that you should get to know your vendors on a level outside of their work. Find out their “why” and connect with them in this way. By the same token, share your story with them. I promise that connecting on this deeper level will make your wedding experience even better.

Lastly, I absolutely recommend meeting with vendors that share your style. Your tastes, preferences, and wedding style is unique, so it’s important to make sure that you see yourself as a great fit with your vendors! Discuss your overall vision + style to see if your vendors align and play a part in making this come to life. After all, this client-vendor relationship will grow and develop over time throughout planning, your wedding day, and beyond!
