Now everyone wants to be ready for the big day, and these moments need to be captured, the bride and the groom will be looking their best, your photos have spent days planning for the right Jora to wear to outdo the mother of the bride. Such an occasion begs for these moments to be caught on camera, that’s why it’s so important to choose the right photographer for your wedding. Finding the right photographer is not an easy task, but lucky for you, we’re here to help.
Remember these points when looking for one…
The photographer him/herself
Working with the right photographer is important after all he or she will be spending days with you and your family at events and possibly even smaller get together. You need to be able to understand each other. Look for a photographer that will make this job personal. Ask them for their portfolios, see their work and make sure to be satisfied with their work before bringing them on the job. Every photographer has his/her own style and that might not work for everyone. So take a little effort and figure out what works for you. Sit him down ask for his time and figure out exactly what you need from your pictures and what moments he should look out for. It’s a good idea to be on the same page before the wedding.
Equipment & Gear
At the end of the day it’s the photographer that needs to be skilled but that doesn’t mean you should not take into consideration the equipment and gear your photographer is using. After all you wouldn’t want to spend all that money and just let it go to waste. Looking at the kind of glass they use really tells you how much your photographers invested into his craft to get the best results. See what lights he’s bringing for flash photography and portraits of course this means you need to know a bit about photography. It might seem like a daunting task but a little research can really help you understand what you’re paying for and what you’re getting.
No matter how skilled your photographer is, he can’t be everywhere. Usually your photographer will bring some assistants too, so that they can get more coverage, and usually that works out fine. Again, let us stress that you should know what you’re paying for. If possible, do request to see the pictures his/her assistants have taken besides the main pictures that photographer will show you because, usually he’ll want to score a client by showing his main portraits.
