Choosing a wedding photographer might sound simple, but it can make or break your wedding. It should be listed among the important decisions regarding your wedding. The photographer will be there for every moment of your big day, and will be in charge of making sure that you will be able to look back at your wedding for decades to come. So you have to make sure you have chosen the right person for the task. Here's some questions to ask yourself and to help you choose a wedding photographer that is a right fit.
Have you requested for recent works?
Experienced photographers will easily be able to show their recent work, and from there you will be able to get an idea on what their style and capacity is. You can get an idea on how creative, how they adapt to various environments and how good they are at improvising.
Do I like the photos or the reputation of the photographer?
There’s nothing wrong with going for the photographer who’s been doing weddings for a long time and has made a name among customers, but only go for them if you’re absolutely in love with their work, not their famous name or clientele.
Does the photographers style fit your personality?
Wedding photographers, like couples that strive to make their wedding as unique as possible, have also developed their own style of photography. Their style, just like the designer of your wedding gown, can only stretch or accommodate your own style. You can’t expect a photographer who uses heavy lighting, props, and a ton more drama to suddenly change his look to something more traditional, and vice versa.
Do I know of anyone that they have shot before?
Go the extra mile by asking around for referrals will give you a better idea on how the photographer is like behind the scenes, or when they are shooting already. There are some photographers who are bit too rough that they’ll be ordering you around during the wedding, while others will be more laid back and friendly. Make sure that their personality will be something that you would like to deal with on your big day.
Can I afford the photographer?
Budget plays a huge part in the wedding and choosing the right photographer might cost you but depending on what you spend will decide what type of photographer you will be able to afford. So choose wisely and make sure you make the best possible choice for one of the most important days of your life.
