When choosing your wedding photographer there are many things to take into consideration and these 5 quick tips should hopefully help you!
1 – Make sure you connect
This first tip may seem fairly obvious, but everybody has different personalities and it is really important that you have a connection with your photographer. The reason this is so important is because photographers are there to capture some of the most important moments on your wedding day, you need to feel comfortable being around them so they can achieve the most natural images that portray you in the best way.
2 – Make sure you happy with their photographic approach
Every photographer will have a different approach, whether this is in the style they photograph or the way they deal with their clients. I know you will be doing lots of research but read a little into the photographers, take a look at their about pages and even read some of their recent blog posts. If you like their writing style make a note of their details ready to contact them.
3 – Look at their portfolio, make sure you like their style
Have a look at a photographer’s websites and ask yourself if you’d be happy with similar photographs on your wedding day? If the answer is yes then maybe pin some of their images on your “Wedding Inspiration” board, you might not be ready to book but you still have a reference to their work.
4 – Could you put your trust in them capturing one of the most important days of your life?
If the answer is no, ask yourself why? Asking yourself this will help you on your journey in finding the right photographer for you. Trust is a huge part when hiring someone as your photographer. ‘Should I ask a friend to photograph my wedding’ blog post.
5 – Meet them
The best way to get to know someone is by meeting them, I love meeting with all my clients, as you all have such different weddings that I take joy in being part of. A meeting is also a completely different experience to having an email conversation, it’s a much more personal experience and usually involves a nice cuppa tea, or coffee if you’d prefer!
