How to Choose the Perfect Wedding Photographer

Weeks, months and years after your wedding day,   there will come a moment when you want to look back and remember the most special day of your life.  For most of us, photographs give us the biggest surge of nostalgia   and bring back wonderful memories of the past.   Here are some points you should consider   when finding the right photographer for your wedding:

how to choose the perfect wedding photographer1. If you’re hiring a photographer for the first time, have a look at his samples. If he’s not the only photographer in the company,   make sure you see the ones that your chosen photographer took and not the other photographers.  Looking at the photographer’s samples allows you to see what his photography style is.   Does he/she shoot in black and white? Does they take candid shots? Does their skills lean more towards the traditional style?

2. Have a consultation with the photographer and assistant.   As professionals, they should ask you what you want and make suggestions on what mood you would like to see   in your wedding pictures. Make sure you hire a photographer whom you’re comfortable with.   Ask questions about their professional experience so as to know what kind of person they’re like when at work. You want to have a stress-free day on your wedding so be sure to hire someone cooperative and open-minded.

3. To make it easier for the clients, most companies offer packages.  Packages are a great help for those who are on a budget.   Check out packages from different companies so you can have more options to choose from.   Ask whether their package include DVDs of high-resolution photos,  prints and enlargements.

4. Ask for a contract and read it carefully before signing.

5. While some people ask the photographers what type of equipment they use,   others don’t think it’s necessary. The greatest proof of a photographer’s style and skills is their samples.   The samples should make or break the deal.

6.   Ask whether they also do videography or if     they can suggest of a good videographer. Most videographers team up with photographers and work together in giving you what you want.  Make sure to check their demos and packages.
