How to Find a Wedding Photographer
- Decide on a style you love
When you start looking for a wedding photographer you’ll notice the wide variety of styles. Spend some time looking at web sites and deside what you love. Look at the overall feel of the images, the colours, the moments. What kind of photography style speaks to you most? Documentary, traditional, artsy, or avante garde. Be sure to look over as many images as possible on the photographer’s website to get a feel for their style.
- Look at the entire day
Blog posts are a good place to start to gather an idea of what a full day will look like. You’ll want to look at how the photographer captures the entire day, not just the portrait sessions. Look at the detail shots, the documentary moments, candid guest photos, the speeches. Every part of the wedding day is important.
- Technical and Creative Skill
Lighting is everything when it comes to creating quality images. While you are looking through websites, consider how the photographer uses light. The ability to use light in a variety of situations such as harsh lighting (usually mid day), low lighting (indoor ceremonies or receptions), overcast and golden hour light. It’s likely your wedding day will have a combination of these different types of lighting. An experienced wedding photographer will be ready for anything on your wedding day.
Check Google, Facebook and websites to see what other couples have to say about their experiences. This is a good indicator on professionalism, and what you can expect from a business.
- Set up interviews
Contact your top three wedding photographers and check they are available for your wedding date. While price may be a prime concern when budgeting, an in person meeting will help you determine if the asking price will be a good value for dollars spent.
- Compare packages
Comparing packages might be a little like comparing apples to oranges. When two photographers are offering an album in a package you need to see the actual album to compare. Covers, paper, inks and binding to create quality albums can make a significant difference in the look and longevity of your wedding album.
- Go with your gut
After meeting your top choices, you’ll have a good idea of personality, skill, professionalism and knowledge. Choosing a photographer that you connect with will not only ensure a pleasant day, but you’ll feel confident you’ve made the right choice. When you know, don’t delay booking. The best photographers book up fast!
