Choosing Your Wedding Photographer

Weddings are a once in a lifetime event! You want this special and unique celebration captured in a way that will bring you joy every time you look at your album. Once your wedding is over, you can never recapture lost opportunities to tell the story of your wedding.

Here are a few questions you might want to ask yourself before choosing your wedding photographer. Does the photographer specialize in Wedding photography? Does the photographer have formal training? Is the photographer certified, and a member of professional organizations. How long has the photographer been in business? What is my primary consideration in choosing my wedding photographer? (quality,reputation, budget,etc.) If it is budget, remember that the value of portraits that you are happy with will increase as time goes by where as photographs that you are unhappy with are worthless. What type of personality does the photographer have? Do I feel comfortable with them? Will I enjoy sharing my special day with them? Do I trust that they will do their very best for me? Is the photographer versatile? Do they offer different techniques and styles of wedding photography? Do I want my portraiture designed just for me with a plan of action, or just a lot of random snapshots?

Photography is a visual art that touches our hearts and emotions. Be sure to see complete weddings, not just “the best” of the photographers work in an album. start shopping for your photographer at least six months prior to your wedding and see their work, do not just compare prices over the phone. Ask for a referrals list so that you can talk to other couples that have worked with the photographer.

Your wedding photography will become a treasured keepsake and should reflect who you are and tell the story of your love. the careful selection of your wedding photographer will make all the difference.
