As the Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of a luxury bridal magazine for New York City, our lives are all about weddings. We live, breathe, and love all things that lead up to the moment when you say “I Do” and then some. When wedding planning became a personal experience, and not just one of business, we got a taste of the excitement and challenges our readers encounter from this monumental occasion. In anticipation of our own wedding, we paired up with wedding photographer Cody Raisig of Cody Raisig Photography for an engagement portrait session, and gained a lot of insight that goes into creating this photographic event.

The Photographer’s Role

With so much readily accessible talent today, it’s a surprising fact that finding your wedding photographer is harder than one would think. I don’t just mean artistic style or budget.
