Your wedding day will be the most important day of your life – and you want to make sure you have the best wedding photographer on hand to capture all of those amazing moments. From the first step down the aisle to the last dance with your new husband, selecting your wedding photographer will be one of the most important decisions you could make for your wedding ceremony.
Of course, selecting a wedding photographer is also one of the hardest decisions you’ll have to make. There are tons of talented photographers out there who are willing to vie for your business. Add to the fact that many photographers have portfolios of gorgeous and stunning wedding pictures, and it’s no wonder you’re having trouble selecting a photographer for the big day.
And that’s exactly where these tips on selecting your wedding photographer come into play!
- One of the best places to find a high-quality wedding photographer in your location is on Facebook – and many of them will be your friends! Carefully scroll through your timeline to see if any of your artsy friends have photographs that speak to you. Do they have a photography business set up? Are they photographers by profession? While you may save a bit of money hiring a friend who does it in his or her spare time, this may cause issues in case the pictures aren’t professional or the friend suddenly flakes.
Hiring a friend who runs their own photography business means they’ll treat your wedding with the professionalism you deserve.
- Selecting a wedding photographer means finding someone who is willing to do the work at a price you can afford. However, don’t expect to a professional photographer for just pennies on the dollar. The best photographers will charge a decent price, so be wary of photographers who are willing to deeply discount their prices.
- Be sure to ask for plenty of references and portfolios. Sometimes choosing the right wedding photographer simply comes down to liking one photographer’s pictures over another. Follow up with references to see what the photographer is like on the actual wedding day. Was the photographer on time? Did he or she capture the best moments? Was he or she quick to respond to emails and phone calls? Ask these questions to get an accurate idea of a photographer’s professionalism.
