How To Choose a Wedding Photographer

You have set the date and booked the venue, but you still don’t have a fabulous photographer who will capture your big day? These tips will help you choose the right person for the job!

 Look for Photographers Who Specialise in What You Are Looking For

Whether you want artistic imagery, stunning editorial-style photography or beautiful, atmospheric images, make sure you find a wedding photographer that specialises in the type of images you love. Are you looking for top-notch portraits? Narrow down your research focus and search for exceptional portraiture. If you are planning a beach wedding, look for artists who love capturing seaside events. And if you are getting married in a rustic winery, then search for photographers who operate in the area and have breathtaking images of vineyard ceremonies on their website. After your big day, you might also need pregnancy and newborn photography, boudoir images, family portraits or someone to capture important events like christenings and birthdays. This is why you should shortlist experienced and highly skilled photographers who can immortalise all those milestones in your life.

See Their Portfolio

The best way to get to know your wedding photographer is by flicking through their portfolio. Analyse images on their website to make sure they are your cup of tea. Are you happy with the quality of the photos? Do you like the lighting on their photos? Do you like the style? And if you are looking for a specific type of wedding photography, look for fine examples in their portfolio. Do they make fabulous black and white portraits? Are they specialising in photojournalistic wedding photography? Do they have that artsy, whimsical feel you are in love with? Additionally, you can also try to find out if they have already photographed weddings at your venue or chosen location. If they have and if you like their images, you’ll probably love the wedding album they will deliver!

Check Client Reviews and Ask For Recommendations

Find out what other couples said about wedding photographers you have shortlisted. Scroll through their website and social media profiles to find honest reviews. You’ll find more information on their approach, work ethic, relationship with clients and quality of photos. However, a word of mouth is always the best reference, so ask your friends, relatives or trusted wedding vendors to recommend photographers they love or work with. Find out how long they have been in the industry, how they communicate with clients, do they offer value for money and how passionate and dedicated they are.
