10 Things To Look For When Choosing A Wedding Photographer

Your wedding photos are going to be with you for the rest of your life. So, it makes sense that you would want to choose a photographer who will do them justice. Here is a top 10 list of things to look for when choosing a wedding photographer.


1. Style

Do you like the way their photos look? Do the colors pop? Are the couples in the photos posed or candid? Do the photos look natural or staged? You should like the way their photos look. If you don’t, then move on. There are plenty of other photographers out there. 


2. Reviews

What do other couples have to say about their experience with the photographer? Have they had any bad experiences? Make sure to read the reviews before making a decision. 


3. Price

When it comes to wedding photography, you get what you pay for. The more expensive photographers are usually that way for a reason. They have years of experience and they know how to get the best shots. The cheaper photographers are usually inexperienced and they might not be able to deliver the same quality of photos. 


4. Personality


It’s important that you get along with your photographer because they will be spending a lot of time with you on your wedding day. If you don’t like their personality, then it might not be worth it to have them as your photographer. 


5. Package

What does their package include? Do they offer an engagement shoot? How many hours will they be shooting on your wedding day? How many edited photos will you receive? Make sure to ask these questions before hiring a photographer. 


6. Flavor


When looking at their portfolio, do all of their photos look the same or do they have a wide variety of different styles? You should pick a photographer who has a lot of different flavors so that you can get a variety of photos from your wedding day. 


7. Delivery

 How long will it take for them to deliver your wedding photos? You shouldn’t have to wait more than six weeks for your photos. If it takes longer than that, then something is wrong and you should move on to another photographer. 


8.”extras”

Does the photographer offer any extras that might be important to you? For example, do they offer photo albums or prints? These might be things that you want so make sure to ask about them before hiring a photographer. 


9.”add-ons”

10.”must-haves”

What are some must-haves that you want from your wedding photographer ? Make sure that they can deliver on these must-haves before hiring them.
