Choosing the right photographer for your wedding day is one of the biggest challenges of wedding planning. Ideally, you can secure a recommendation from your wedding planner or a friend/family member. Even if someone gives you a referral, you have to both love their work and click with them on a personal level; you will be spending the entire day with them after all.
Your wedding photos will be with you for the rest of your life and will be your most prized possession; they are something you will look back on for the upcoming years to come. They are something that hangs in your house for you to see every day.
Here are a few things to think about when choosing your photographer:
There are so many types of photography styles. When you narrow it down to the style you like, moody, very colorful, or fine art, this will help you know who to research online.
Every photographer has different packages depending on the hours at the wedding and if they offer albums or prints. Make sure to have an idea of what you are looking for ahead of time to discuss your needs when you interview photographers.
Meet with multiple photographers so you can compare personalities, packages, and how you both communicate with each other. When meeting with your potential photographer, ask questions like “how many pictures do you typically deliver,” or “will you be photographing my wedding or will you send an associate.” Have your questions prepared ahead of time, so you don’t forget anything.
