How to Choose the Right Photographer

Your photographer will be one of the most important choices you make. They will be one of the professionals who you need to deal with the most on the day and will be recording the event to give you memories and a record of everything else that you have arranged. Make sure you feel comfortable with them and their work. Check their photographs from other shoots and look for quality and consistency.

Make sure they are qualified and experienced. Ask for testimonials from past customers. Weddings are a high pressure type of photography, things happen quickly and the photographer only has limited time and little control. Therefore they need to be able to stay calm and get things done efficiently.

The photography style is important, and don't expect a photographer to be able to change their style just for your event. There can be a lot of difference between photographers with some taking a more informal approach and others aiming for a more contemporary or fashion look. Consider what style you prefer and how much time it will take to get the type of photographs you like. An engagement shoot is a fantastic way to get used to being in front of the camera, getting to know your photographer, and gives you an opportunity to have some great casual shots of you as a couple.

The personality of the photographer is important; they should be friendly, polite, calm and efficient. As well as getting great photos for you they need to be able to help you enjoy the day, organize groups and be polite to your guests.

Price is always a factor, make sure you know what it is likely to cost once you include things like albums and prints. I recommend going for a photographer who has flexible options so that you aren't tied down to fixed packages. Once you have selected your photographer, discuss with them what you are looking for and what photos are most important to you. If they provide a guide to the photographs tick off those that you want and put any additional ones you require.

On the day of the event, do make suggestions and remind them of things that are important to you. If you have selected a good photographer, they will be willing to listen and work with you to get the photographs you want.
