CHOOSING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER
DECIDE ON A STYLE
Before you start searching for wedding photographers, you need to check out the different styles of photography available. This way, you can determine what style you would like for your wedding photos. Here are a few different styles:
Documentary: Are you turned off by posed or rigid photographs? Documentary style photos might be perfect for you because they feature more candid and spontaneous shots.
Portraiture: For people who prefer a more traditional style of photography, portraiture is the perfect style for them. Portraiture includes posed shots of the bride and groom, the bridal and groom parties, and their families and friends.
Fine Art: If you are looking for more dramatic and artistic photos, then fine art photography might be a great choice for you.
Once you’ve established the style of wedding photography that you prefer, you can begin searching for wedding photographers online. Check out different photographers’ websites, including their blogs, to see if you like their style of artistry. It’s also a good idea to check out different reviews of wedding photographers to see if they are professional, personable, and easy to work with. If the photographer has a Facebook page or Instagram account, check out their social media sites as well.
INTERVIEW POTENTIAL PHOTOGRAPHERS
Once you’ve selected a few wedding photographers who you find appealing, set up interviews with them. That way, you can discuss your vision and they can map out the details of their processes. You can also determine which photographers you mesh with on a personal level because you want to feel comfortable around them. You want to mention the type of venue you are using, the style of your wedding, and the ideas that you have about the wedding photos.
LOOK AT THEIR ALBUMS
To further get a feel for the photographer’s body of work, ask to see a couple of full galleries from they shot in the past. By viewing a full album, you will have an even better understanding of their unique style.
