Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you'll make during the planning process. Your photographers are the people responsible for documenting all of the special moments throughout the day, which means the way they view things through their lenses will have a huge impact on shaping how you remember the festivities. However, picking the right photographer isn't always easy! There are literally hundreds of options to consider and it's difficult to even know what to look for and which questions to ask. That's why we're here to help you make the best choice for your big day with our 8 Tips for Choosing a Wedding Photographer.

For the second installment of our Exposure! series, we took Denver band Bleak Plaza into the studio for this free, exclusive MP3 of indie-pop heaven. Bleak Plaza is a four-piece deeply rooted in the city’s indie scene, making them one of our favorite local bands. They take their cues from post-punk heroes like Wire and Gang of Four, thirty years of jangle-inflected indie-pop, and more recent touchstones like The Walkmen. We couldn’t be happier that Bleak Plaza agreed to head into the studio for this exclusive first music release in our Exposure! series.
