Why choosing the right wedding photographer is important?
When anyone asks you about your wedding, whether you've been married for months or years, the first thing you will do is pull out a photo. It is your wedding photographer's job to capture those precious moments of love and joy, so that you can share them with others for years to come. With SO many Wedding Photographers to choose from (thanks Instagram!), there are a few style elements to think about when it comes to picking the right photographer for you.
- Do you want traditional posed photographs?
- Do you want a candid and natural approach?
- Do you want an adventurous or artistic feel?
- Do you want a photojournalistic look?
To get the best idea, have a look through your favourite photographers' wedding portfolios on their website and see if their visual style appeals to you.
In addition to liking their work, its important to like their personality as well, since they will be spending a lot of time with you on your wedding day. To get a better understanding of the photographer's personality:
- Read the about section on their website.
- Book a Consultation in Person or on a Video Call.
- Read Reviews, couples will generally mention personality elements of the photographer.
- i.e. were they fun, prompt, energetic etc.
- Find Videos of them on Instagram Reels
During your initial consultation, you should feel that they are focused on you and YOUR needs, are considerate, easy to get along with and fun!
