How to Choose the Right Wedding Photographer
Did you know that choosing a wedding photographer is one of the most important decisions you need to make when planning a wedding? Your wedding photographs last a lifetime and serve as happy memories long after you walk down the aisle. That’s why it’s important to work with a photographer who gets your “couple vibe” and will provide you with photos that are uniquely yours.
When choosing a wedding photographer, here are a few things to consider:
Choose a photographer you “vibe” with
Fact: Your wedding photographer is the one vendor you will spend most of your wedding day with. Therefore, it’s important to choose a photographer you get along with and understands your vibe. This ensures they’ll bring out the very best in you and your S.O. making your pictures absolutely perfect.
Pick a style
Wedding photographs are like works of art and each artist (wedding photographer) comes with their own style. Become acquainted with their work by following them on social media and choose a photographer whose style is authentic to you and your other half. A few things to consider are how they capture candid moments throughout the wedding, and how they stage portraits.
Jump over to Google Reviews and gauge other couples’ experiences with the photographer. Is the feedback positive? This will give you an idea on what to expect when working with them.
Find out about turnaround times
It could take a few weeks before your wedding pictures are ready, so find out beforehand expected turnaround times. Some photographers may immediately provide a preview of all your wedding photos, while others may need some time to retouch your photography. Ask about this important detail and also find out about their retouching policies.
Provide them with a day-of timeline
Share your “day of” timeline with the photographer so they know exactly where they need to be to capture your wedding’s most anticipated moments. If you have any special photography requests, make sure to plan ahead of time with members of your wedding party, and include these shots in your timeline.
