You want your wedding photographer to capture everything that makes your day special, to deliver photographs that live up to your expectations. Three tips for chosing the most appropriate wedding photographer that you can live with throughout your new life together.
A reputable wedding photographer should have a physical location. Brick and mortar wedding photography studios build trust with their clients. If your wedding photographer does not have a local address it is a good reason not to trust them.
A good wedding photographer should help make your day go more smoothly. Your photographer is the only vendor who is going to be spending the entire day with you. A good wedding photographer should make things easier for you. They should solve problems, be flexible. They should be able to adapt and thrive in difficult situations.
You need your wedding photographer to be focused on you. When you meet with any wedding photographer for the first time, do they ask about you, get to know you, and find out what you want? Or do only they talk about themselves and what they do? Find a photographer who is willing to spend time getting to know you so you know they understand you and your needs. This is the best way to find out if they are a good fit for you.
It might sound strange, however not all wedding photographers are the same and not all photographers are a good fit for every client. You would rather a professional be honest about the idea that they are not fit for your style and expectations than trying to change to meet your needs. Photographers don’t want to make you unhappy, and if a wedding photographer thinks you might be happier with a different style of photography or with a different situation, we will tell you before you book so you are not disappointed later on. After all, it is YOUR day so make the most of it and enjoy your decisions and the day.
