Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Where can I find a photographer for a short-notice, small Colorado 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 Colorado wedding day by.
Q: How can couples find Colorado photographers for pre-wedding engagement portraits?
A: The WPJA issues Diamond Awards for Colorado 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: How can couples find reviews of Colorado 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 Colorado wedding photographers for their own wedding.

Veronica, Your unmatched talent for photography is surpassed only by your genuinely kind soul. My gratitude goes way beyond just your work but also your genuine care and dedication. Thank you so much for your incredible attention to detail, each validating response, every kind word, and your effortless coordination and execution on our wedding day. In the stress and chaos of wedding planning, you were a constant support. I often found myself looking forward to hearing from you. It was always a breath of fresh air. Thank you for always maintaining focus on what mattered most. We will forever treasure our portrait session on our wedding day. It was during that time that the blur of the day stopped and we were able to experience the most special moments of just being together. Thank you for giving that to us. I feel so incredible blessed to have found you and to have formed such a special connection. You will always be held so closely in our hearts and we are forever grateful. My praise is endless, but for now, thank you, Veronica, for sharing your gift with us! With Love, Mary and Mike
