WEDDING 101: HOW TO PICK A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Wedding photographers are crucial to your wedding day and your wedding memories, so it is important to choose the right one for you! First you need to create a reasonable budget for what you are willing to spend for a photographer. Next, do your research.Look at differentgalleries of photographers work within that price range. Discover what style you like best. Soft light, candid, posed, artistic. Find what type of photography appeals to youmost.

You should meet with at least three photographers that embody your style and that are in your price range -one at the top of your price range, middle, and bottom – this way you will be able to see what spending more money will get you in quality! While meeting with the photographers,ask to see a FULL wedding album – so you can see how they tell the full story of a wedding daythrough their images. Are they great at portraits but aren’t the best with detail shots? Are their best shots outdoors in natural light but inside is not so hot? Or is every shot a winner? You will get to know their style by viewing one of their weddings from start to finish.

Don’t be afraidto ask for past client contact informationas referencesso you can hear first hand what it is like to work closely with this vendor.There is no other vendor (except the wedding planner) thatyou are going to spend more face to face time with on your wedding day than the photographer! Youhave to know you are going to get along!

Once you feel you have a good match,schedule anengagement photo sessionwith the photographer as a means for a test run. You can get to know one another’s style personally and professionally. It will make the wedding day that much more comfortable and easy-going.
