How to Decide on a Wedding Photographer

Wedding Planning Tips

You’re planning your wedding and you have SO. MANY. DECISIONS. I get it! I’ve been there. I know have to select the perfect venue, narrow down that guest list, pick that perfect shade of pink for the bridesmaids dresses, and so much more! I also know that one of the biggest decisions you have is finding your Wedding Photographer. It’s a big decision! So let me help you out and explain how to decide on your Wedding Photographer.

Choose someone you truly and genuinely like!

You must be able to have a connection and enjoy their company because they will be a small part of your life throughout your engagement and be with you for your entire wedding day! Are they the type of person you want to hang out with on the weekend? Are they the type of person you want to be with you on your most important day? Because that’s what they will be doing! You want to select a photographer who is professional, reliable and trustworthy. But you also want someone who can be your friend and your hype girl on your big day!

Choose someone that you trust.

Does your photographer have experience? How are they able to help make your day run smoothly? Do they have a system, use high grade equipment and back up your images? This is the person who will be capturing some of the most important images of your lifetime. So it’s important to select someone who is well seasoned and that you can trust to capture your day and keep your images safe. Plus, trusting your photographer will help YOU relax even more!

Choose someone whose work you LOVE!

Selecting a photographer is similar to selecting an artist to document your special day. Artists all have different styles and touches that make them the unique artists that they are. So do you love their style of photography? Do you like the poses, angles and variety they take? Do you love their editing style? Are you going to be proud and excited to hang their photos on your walls?

Choose a photographer that gives you more than just pictures!

Look for someone who gives you an experience – a whole, all encompassing, bridal photography experience. Do they include an engagement session? Will they help you plan out a wedding day timeline and give suggestions to make the most of the day? Will they help bustle your dress if your bridesmaids are all at the bar? Will they cater to your good side and most flattering poses? Are they going to treat your bridal party like family? Do they offer prints and albums?

Being a bride and planning a wedding is such hard work! The wedding photographer you choose should ease some of the planning stress – allow you to relax, trust them, and let them pamper you all while capturing the most stunning images of you and your soon-to-be spouse. If any of this sounds like you, reach out so we can determine availability for your special day!
