Your wedding photographer is one of the most important people in your wedding- for his or her work will decide as to how you will remember this special day for your entire life. You want a photographer who understands that and captures each moment for what it really is- unique and special. Taking care of just a few things will help you ensure that you find the best photographer for your wedding.
Set up an interview
You cannot go by just looks- you have to meet your potential photographers. Begin by looking at their websites, and if you like what is in front of you, ask if the photographer will be available on your wedding date, and then call for an interview. You should interview at least 3 to 5 photographers, see their works, understand their style and check if your personalities go well together. As you set up interviews, be ready to give information including the venue, wedding theme, and what you want from your photos and recordings.
Is your photographer asking you enough questions?
Unless your photographer understands the event, your requirements and what you expect from his work, how can you even think that he will do the job the way you want to? A professional wedding photographer will ask you numerous questions, right from where you are planning to do the wedding to the number of events, the kind of photography that you want, the moments that you want to be captured and so on. You need a photographer who knows what he is doing- and the only way he can actually do that is by gathering as much information as possible.
