Congratulations! This day is one you’ve dreamed of for years and it’s finally happening! Deciding who will photograph your wedding is by far one of your most important decisions right now. After all, when the flurry and excitement of the big day is over, beautifully captured images are what’s left for you to revisit the romance, emotion and spirit of an event that passes so quickly.
So, how do you choose the best wedding photographer for you?
KNOW YOUR STYLE: Find a photographer whose body of work you align with artistically. Every photojournalist has a different take and style of storytelling, so make sure you are choosing to hire someone whose work naturally speaks to you. Look through portfolio and social media accounts - you should love what you see and feel a sense of connection to the photographs.
LIKE YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER: Don't underestimate the importance of liking and bonding with your photographer. S/he should put you at ease, be approachable and assertive, and be someone you and your fiance get along with and like. Remember: a good photographer shadows their clients’ every move, so the more comfortable a client is with their photographer, the better the photos will turn out.
CHOOSE A SEASONED PROFESSIONAL: With years of experience under my belt, the gear to match, and working knowledge of how to handle weird lighting and pushy family members, you can trust that I am a capable and qualified professional who has it all taken care of.
