When it comes to your wedding day, choosing the right photographer is essential to capture all the special moments that will last a lifetime. Here are some important things to consider when looking for a wedding photographer…
Style: First things first, each photographer has their unique style, so it’s crucial to find one that aligns with your taste. Do you prefer a traditional or a more contemporary approach? Are you drawn to a more editorial or documentary style? Review their portfolio to determine if their work matches your preferences.
Experience: Wedding photography requires skill and experience. Consider how long the photographer has been in business, how many weddings they’ve shot, and whether they’ve worked at your venue before. Experienced photographers can handle any challenges that may arise on the day and ensure that you receive beautiful images.
Personality: Your photographer will be with you for most of the day, so it’s essential to choose someone you feel comfortable with. Scheduling a consultation call is the easiest way to get to know them and see if your personalities mesh well!
Packages and pricing: Determine your budget and what you want from your photographer. Do they offer packages that meet your needs? Do they have a la carte pricing for extras such as albums or prints? Be sure to ask about their cancellation and refund policies.
Reviews and referrals: Read reviews from previous clients to get an idea of their experiences with the photographer. Ask for referrals from friends and family who have recently gotten married and were happy with their photographer. We’re super pleased to say that we have 5 star reviews across all of our platforms!
Professionalism: A professional photographer should have a contract outlining the details of the agreement, such as the number of hours they’ll be shooting, the turnaround time for receiving your images, and any additional fees. They should also have backup equipment and a plan in case of an emergency.
Editing and retouching: Find out if the photographer edits their photos and if retouching is included in their packages. Some photographers offer additional editing services for an extra fee however we include our editing fee in all of our collections for no extra fee.
