5 Tips for Hiring a Wedding Photographer

Pick A Style

Sit down with your fiance and go through wedding photography and pick out shots you really like. Start a Pinterest or virtual mood bood to show the photographer’s you schedule meetings with. This will also help your partner when you go through look books, and compare photographs to ones you both love. Styles range from bespoke, portraits, documentary, edgy & bold, as well as fine art.

Do Your Homework

Wedding shows are a great place to meet several photographers at one, get their contact information and quickly flip through their look book. Try starting a Reddit page for your area and ask local people to recommend someone they’ve used. Turn to social media and ask people you know if they can suggest someone they know or have used for their own wedding! Be sure to check out photographer’s social media pages like facebook, twitter and instagram.

Compare Packages

You may find that some photographers include different items with their pricing. Look to social media for links to coupons and discounts. Ask what their standard fee and album fees are, that way you can narrow down what you really want and expect for the money you are spending. Some photographers don’t include engagement photos, or may charge extra to stay to the very end of the reception.

Create A Strong Relationship

The relationship between photographer, bride and groom is really important. You want to be sure that your personalities match. You’ll be spending a great deal of time with this person, and their team if they have one, so simply put: you want to get along. Anyone you or your fiance find annoying will just make things hard for you on your special day. Your photograph’s will be more amazing the more positive and relaxed you are with this person.

Get All The Details In Writing

When it’s all said and done, and you find just the right photographer for just the right price - get everything in writing. You will want a stipulation included in the contract about who covers the shoot if something happens and the photographer can’t make the day of your shoot. You may even want to consider wedding insurance, just in case anything happens to the studio or photographer’s equipment before your big day too. Also, be sure to get in writing that you have rights to your photographs and can copy or duplicate them - as printing can get quite expensive if rights are not obtained.
