Wedding season is coming up fast and you may feel overwhelmed by the prospect of choosing a wedding photographer. There are so many factors that go into the selection, but we’re here to provide clarity amidst the wedding to-do fog.
Choose a Style
Every photographer has their style. To make sure you get what you are looking for, it is best to browse through wedding photographers’ portfolios. Check out their style and be sure that you want your wedding photos to look similar.
Choose a photographer who has a style that you enjoy, rather than trying to get a photographer to shoot in a style that they are not comfortable with or experienced shooting in. Having someone who has a style you like will make it easier and more enjoyable for both parties!
Pro tip: Want to have the same style engagement photos? Have the same photographer do both shoots!
Choose Someone within Your Budget
It is best to find a photographer who’s in your budget. Similar to finding a wedding dress, don’t fall in love with a photographer who’s out of your budget! There are many amazing wedding photographers for all budgets! Now, take this with a grain of salt; you get what you pay for. If you find someone who has a price that seems too good to be true, it probably is. This is a day that you’ll want to remember for the rest of your life, so have a good quality photographer that will be able to capture the special moments.
How to Find a Wedding Photographer
Finding a wedding photographer can feel very overwhelming, and you might not know where or how to begin. First, research local wedding photographers in your area based on style and budget. A second option is to ask friends or family if they know any wedding photographers that they could recommend. In addition, some cities will have wedding shows that feature photographers. These are all good options to start you off on your wedding photographer search.
It is always good to have a photographer that you and your partner mesh well with. This will make your photoshoots more relaxed and natural, providing you with better photos. Not all brides or grooms are comfortable in front of the camera, so having someone that you and your partner feel comfortable with is very important.
Look in Advance!
Once you have your wedding venue and date nailed down, book your photographer. Popular photographers will get booked up very quickly. If you have your heart set on a specific photographer, book well in advance.
