Hiring a Wedding Photographer

3 Important considerations when choosing a wedding photographer

Deciding on a wedding photographer can be an intimidating task. There is now more options out there than ever to choose from, and the sheer number of products each may offer can be overwhelming. Outlined below are three guidelines that can be considered when interviewing a potential candidate. Each should help narrow your options, and help you find the best vendor to capture your special day.

One important question to ask your potential photographer is whether or not digital files will be included with your package. Even in today’s digital age, a quality wedding album or professional prints cannot be replaced. However there is a growing place for digital files. Between social networking, online photo galleries, or TV set top entertainment boxes, having digital files can be important. Be sure to ask if you’ll receive a copy of these files after your wedding.

Another important question to determine is how well your photographer will work with you and your fiancĂ© personally. Your wedding will of course be one of the biggest days of your life, and your photographer will be with you for all of it. It’s important to understand how they will work, and what approach they will have to the day. Personality is huge, so be sure your candidates will mesh well with not only the two of you, but also your family and bridal party as well.

Lastly, it’s always a good idea to establish the exact style your photographer will shoot in. Not all wedding photography is created equal, especially in today’s age, when it’s easy for just about anybody go pick up a camera. Determine if you are looking for a photographer who specializes in portraits, or one that focuses on capturing candid moments. Then ask for samples of full weddings from each photographer you are looking at to find the style that best fits your tastes.
