Wedding on the cards? Congratulations!
So, you’ve booked the event venue, bought your wedding dress, invited your guests and you probably have all the wedding feels by now.
But have you given a thought to that one thing that will craft an everlasting memory of your wedding day—your wedding photos?
One of the important tasks is to choose a wedding photographer who can capture all the beautiful memories of your #specialdayforever.
However, with so many options, picking the right photographer is easier said than done.
But don’t you worry! We’ll help you with the process.
Here are 5 things that you should consider while choosing a wedding photographer:
1. Work experience
Someone rightly said, ”Perfection comes with experience.”
It does not matter what high-quality camera and lens your photographer owns until they have enough experience on how to use it.
Some of the questions to ask your photographer are:
- How many weddings have you covered?
- How long have you been in the business?
- Which photography style do you follow whether tradition, modern, or a mix?
These questions can be helpful to know their experience and insight on how to do things right.
Don’t make any decision based solely on work experience. You must also look at the quality of the work of your photographer.
Meet each one of the shortlisted photographers in-person to
- check out their portfolio
- know the wedding style they specialize in
- check a range of photos shot in different locations and lighting conditions
- compare the work with other photographers
Also ask them to show their latest work or an entire wedding album.
Pro tip: Research properly as anyone who has never photographed a wedding can put together a portfolio.
3. Customer reviews
The best way to narrow down the photographers is by checking their customers’ reviews on Google and social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
This way you will get a better idea of what to expect and will be able to spot any red flags before making the choice.
Even better, get recommendations from your newly-wed friends and family members.
Planning a destination wedding?
Choose a wedding photographer who has the experience of taking shots at different locations and who shows the willingness to travel anywhere.
An experienced and flexible photographer can get you the best emotive clicks at any wedding location.
Obviously, professional wedding photography is not something to skim on.
However, it can be one of the more expensive that you thought it to be if not managed properly.
For instance, many photographers charge as per their work experience and the equipment they use.
Be on a safer side, compare the prices of different photographers to ensure that you don’t get overcharged.
If you find someone whose work is really good, ask for negotiations or cut down your expenses on something else like unnecessary shopping.
In the end…
While looking for the right wedding photographer is a tough job, it can be most rewarding when you look at the stunning images and cherish one of the most special events of your life.
Choose the photographer who can click images you can happily look back on for years and years.
