Congratulations on your recent engagement! Before you’re able to fully process the beautiful ring on your finger, everyone is going to be asking, “So when’s the big day?” Once you choose a date and location, the next big thing to tackle is finding the perfect wedding photographer to capture your big day.
Since it is your wedding, you will long to invite all your near and dear ones to felicitate the occasion. However, keep in mind that your list your invitees should not exceed your affordable limit as you need to spend money for their refreshment. In addition, you will have to arrange the seating arrangements for these guests. So, plan wisely. However, make decisions about your wedding guests before talking to the service providers.
Delivery. When you meet with a wedding photographer be sure to find out how long it would take to receive your wedding album, thank you cards and whatever else you may order. It is important to set a clear timeline so you will know exactly when you will receive what.
Figure out what your photography strengths are… then cater to them. If you have a strong eye for photographing people… consider being a fashion or portrait photographer. It you’re particularly skilled at photographing buildings, consider shooting commercial real estate. And so on.
All of these things (and more) should be thought about and planned for when thinking about your wedding. Sit down with all of your suppliers and find out how long it will take to complete each stage of your wedding day. That way you ‘ll know how long you can have for pictures.
After stripping your selection of wedding photographers down to at least three, after visiting their website and phone interviews, make appointments to talk to each photographer. It’s best to meet them on a week day or Sunday if you work during the week since they are usually busy during the weekend. When you meet them, inquiry to see samples of past work, including various wedding albums they have made from past weddings. Ask them how they deal with wedding guests trying to take pictures while they are posing the wedding party. Ask them how they handle the difficult situations, if they arise. The more questions you call upon up front, the more certain and relaxed you’ll feel on and after your wedding day.
Choosing your wedding photographer is one of the biggest decisions of your wedding day, because it is through their lenses that your special moments will be remembered. Not only do you want someone talented, but you want someone who is honest and trustworthy.
