One of the most important parts of your wedding is the photographer who captures those beautiful moments that give you everlasting memories of the day.
Do your homework, start with deciding what your style is. Maybe that’s formal-posed portraits, a classic photography style or a lifestyle, photojournalistic feel. If you love sharp and contrast-y shots, perhaps a photographer with a flair for the dramatic is the right choice for you.
Remember that you don’t necessarily need to narrow in on one style since many wedding photographers can do a blend of portraiture and documentary-style shots, a mix of black-and-white and colour images and so on.
Set Up Interviews
You need to meet your potential photographer, make sure you take a look at their site and portfolio. Get an idea of what their fees are and if they are available for your wedding date before organising an interview.
Ask to see a few full Wedding Albums.
Ask to see two or three full galleries from real weddings they’ve shot so you can get a better idea of what your complete collection of photos might look like after the wedding. And ask to see at least one or two complete albums of weddings that are in similar settings to yours. Get a feel for the photos they show you that will be a similar time and season to yours.
Search through wedding photos so you get a feel of what you want and what may look good. Then you can discuss these with your photographer.
On the day, take your time, position yourself so you get the best shots, it doesn’t matter how long this takes. These are visuals of your memories so allow the photographer to capture those beautiful moments.
