The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Wedding Photographer


Wedding Photographer

A good marriage only happens once and lasts for a lifetime. Psychologists have, in fact, proven that as little as 8 years in a relationship is all it takes to literally nullify divorce probability. Those 8 years are, however, yet to come while the big day is approaching shortly and there’s still so much to do left!

A professional wedding photographer, for once, does not grow on trees. Good ones are even worth fighting for. It’s irreplaceable memories we are talking about here – they do not tolerate profanity. But is there a fail safe way to determine whether a photographer keen at his craft?

Sure there is, you are reading one right now. Here’s where you start.

Dig up some dirt

Research is key to determining a skilled artist of photography. Simply go online and look up for the offerings. After picking a few and briefly going through the portfolios it’s time to put on the detective cap.

Look at the social media pages of your prosperous candidates. Do they have any comments on their photos from satisfied clients? If a wall or a newsfeed of a photographer is not public – he may be hiding some terrible reviews so that’s a bad sign.

Look for reviews on forums, blogs and niche-specific sites from your region to back the decision up. After that’s done you can proceed to the next stage.

The interview

After the perfect candidates for the job are lined up it’s time to ask them a few tricky questions. Here’s a fine wedding photographer interview template:

Make sure the man has a window on the date you need. Good shooters are often busy with blooming schedules.

Ask for phone numbers of his previous clients. A professional wouldn’t mind the additional advertising.

Ask about the experience of photography in general and wedding photography in particular. A professional with a background of journalism or arts may not do the trick.

Ask about the theme of filming and the shooting formula the person will be using.

Finished materials are also an important question. What will you be given afterwards? Will the shots be photoshopped or edited?

Ask about the payment. Be notorious; ask about all nuances like overtime hours and etc.

Ask about the agreement. You’d better sign a contract otherwise you are risking of being ripped off without a result.

Ask questions about the equipment. You may not get the half of what a photographer is saying but you don’t even have to because your job is to pay attention to the passion the person uses to describe his working tools.

  You can ad this list with additional questions as it’s not even near of being complete, but it definitely points out to all necessary moments of your future cooperation with a wedding photographer.
