How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Photographer
Updated: Aug 25, 2022
Deciding which wedding photographer you want to go with can be a very difficult decision. This is a day in your life you want to be able to look back on for the rest of your life, so pictures are very important. You want to be sure you choose someone who captures every single detail - from the placement cards to the moment you say "I do"!
Sometimes it Pays to Have the Best
You know the saying, "You get what you pay for"? This is often true with photographers. You may come across someone who is very new to the industry and is very cheap price wise. Just because they have good prices doesn't mean that is who you should go with. The ultimate goal is to find someone you trust that is going to capture every single detail.
Browse Their Portfolio
When looking for a photographer you will want to be sure to look at the photos of past weddings they have taken. Do not focus on just how they look, think about your style and if it resonates with you. Once you have found a photo that looks your style, you have found your photographer.
The Right Style
Photographers know just when and how to shoot different aspects of your wedding. They will know exactly when to take a picture of your groom when he first sees you walking down the aisle, what to do in the event of rain, and just simply capturing all of the other special moments. Having a creative and flexible approach will achieve the best photos.
Everything from your venue to the time of the year your wedding date is set will affect your photos. If you have an idea on certain shots you may want, talk through it with your photographer and create a specific detailed shot list. It is important to let them know what you want. Don't be afraid to speak up!
