Oct 25, 2010

Splurging on a great wedding photographer is a great idea, especially since these images will follow you for a lifetime. You want to make sure that everything looks picture perfect and with a good photographer, it most definitely can.

When shopping for the right wedding photographer, first consider your budget. How much can you spend on great images? With a clear price range, you’ll be able to better narrow down your options and choose someone who can work with you (and your budget).  Once you have a list of photographers in your budget, start doing research. Look into the photographer’s experience level and portfolio. Take note of the other weddings he or she shoots. Does he or she have a particular style that you like? Are the images in focus? Are they high quality? Do they add character? Really get to know the images and then schedule a meeting.

When meeting with the photographer, it’s important to consider personality. You want to make sure that he or she looks professional but can relate well with you and your guests on the special day. Prepare a list of questions beforehand so that you cover all of your bases. Ask about things like pricing, delivery, service offerings, contracts, deposits, and references. Trust us – it’ll be better for both you and your photographer if you come prepared.

After the interview process, it’s time to comparison shop. Look at the details given to you by each photographer and choose the one that best fits your needs. It’s that simple! Just be sure to follow up throughout the planning process so that you both have a clear idea of what you expect out of your wedding images. Communication is key!
