Choosing the right photographer – tips from pro!

Choosing the right photographer – tips from pro!

  1. Chemistry! It is a must, as you will spend with you photo/video team more time during your wedding than even with your groom. So make sure you really like these people personally, not only their portfolio.
  2. However, portfolio is also a thing you cannot ignore. You photographer needs to be a great portraitist, a bit of journalist, a bit of food stylist; some phycology skills would be added value as well. Try to find your perfect mix depending on your requirements to the end product.
  3. Remember, that hiring a pro is expensive, but tears from hiring an amateur are priceless. However, there is always a room for negotiation. Moreover, if your dream pro is out of your price range, they probably could recommend you someone who is not.
  4. Whether you want your photos to be more candid and light, or posed and formal, let your photographer know your expectation before the event! Otherwise, you risk to buy a pig in a poke.
  5. Intuition. Trust your intuition, but strengthen your choice with rational factors (portfolio, other clients feedback, albums quality).

And remember – wedding photographs and videos are the only memory you can save for the years 😉
