The “How To Choose a Wedding Photographer” video helps us with seven tips for picking a photography professional to capture our special day.
Do you like candid or posed shots? There is also a documentary style. Do you want all the details of your wedding captured without you even realizing it or do you want posed portraits with everyone looking at the camera? Maybe you want a mix of both.
Call photographers for quotes and see what their starting price is.
You may find that your dream photographer is outside your budget, but there are other options. Place at least three to four photographers on a shortlist. Ask to see a portfolio of their work and if they can provide references. Meet with the ones on your shortlist. If you are planning a destination wedding, then set up Skype calls. See if they offer an engagement session as part of their services.
It is important to prepare before your meeting so you don’t miss anything. Make sure the person you hire understands what you want. You want to capture all the important moments of your wedding. So do your homework and find the right pro.
