How You can Best Choose the Perfect Wedding Photographer for Your Special Day

When you are planning your wedding, there are many vendors and suppliers who will all contribute to making your special day a truly memorable one – from the wedding venue to the caterer to the florist, the baker, and more. But when you think about it, there’s one vendor whose work will be with you for years and years: your wedding photographer.

The wedding photographer is tasked with documenting your entire wedding from start to finish, and years after the event, you’ll still be looking at your photos and smiling, remembering that magical day. But if you don’t have a good wedding photographer, your memories could very well be ruined. This is why it’s vital to choose the ideal wedding photographer. Here’s how you can best choose the perfect wedding photographer for your special day.

Their beliefs and principles

This may sound a bit too heavy, but think about it: would you want a wedding photographer who doesn’t really believe in what you believe in when it comes to weddings and marriage? You want a photographer with whom you can relate and with whom you can work with. What are they interested in? If you look at their ‘About us’ page on their website, can you get a better idea of their beliefs and principles regarding weddings and marriages? It’s a good way of getting to know a photographer, and if you feel that some of their principles and beliefs are a good fit with yours, then it’s easier to give them a try.

Your impression

Once you’ve narrowed your list and come up with several wedding photographers, it’s time to set an appointment with them. If the appointment can be done face to face, that’s perfect, but if not, you can always arrange a Skype meeting. When you meet them and speak with them, what is your impression? Do you think you will like them? It’s not necessary for you to be BFFs with your wedding photographer, but liking them enough to work with them on your wedding day counts for a lot.

Check recommendations and reviews

All photographers have different specialties, and most will have their strengths and weaknesses. Not everyone is perfect, but what you can do is make an assessment of a photographer’s weaknesses and decide whether those weaknesses will really affect your desires on your wedding day and afterwards. You need to weigh their strengths and their weaknesses so you can have a more realistic expectation. Apart from this, it would be good to check for recommendations and reviews. Speak to past clients if you can, and check online for any reviews about the photographer.

What’s important is to get a photographer you can work with and trust to deliver the best photos (and memories) of the best day of your life.
