This is something I’ve gone through and I know it’s no easy task to find the right photographer for you. That’s why I’m outlining below the key things to consider when selecting your photographer.
You might have a rough idea of how much you want to spend on your photographer but I highly recommend researching price ranges. These can vary vastly for numerous reasons. Enquire with a few you like and set your expectations based on that. You may not be able to afford the one that you’ve always wanted but you’ll find a photographer who suits your needs and your style.
Have a coffee
As much as possible, arrange to meet your photographer. Get a feel for them and who they are, what they’re about. You’re going to be spending a lot of time with them on the day.
You’ve picked your photographer, you’ve met them and you get on super well. Make sure it will be them photographing your big day. If not, ask to meet the person who will be with you on the day.
Ask your friends
Your friends are your friends for a reason, they’ve got your back. If they had an awesome photographer at their wedding they’ll be more than happy to make the recommendation. Likewise talk to your vendors, most likely they’ll have preferred photographers that they like to work with too.
No photographer is going to have ALL their wedding photographs on their blog so ask to see a full gallery of a wedding they recently shot. That way you’ll get a good idea of what to expect from the whole day, not just the snippet you see on the blog.
Hire a pro
You want a reliable photographer, believe me, you don’t want the stress that they won’t show up or that the photographs won’t be what you expected. By hiring a professional you have peace of mind that they have experience shooting weddings and can help you out along the way.
