Here are some pieces of advice that will help you find the right photographer for you.
Start the search right away
It takes the time to find a good photographer. You should start your search immediately after you have set the date because most of the professional photographers are hired one year before the wedding. But if you wedding will be a Sunday ceremony or out-of-season, then you might find your chosen photographer available at that date. You should spend at least six months to find the right photographer for you.
The best wedding photographers have created a reputation for success so they should be very easy to find. Rely on the recommendations from friends and family who have already hired a certain photographer for their events. You can also ask to see their wedding pictures and photo albums to make sure that this is what you are looking for. You can also check the photographers’ Facebook pages and websites to check their work, customer reviews and blog posts.
Narrow down the options
You already have a list of 10-15 photographers. Maybe more maybe less. They all look promising, they all seem to be what you need. Still, you need to make your choice and choose your wedding photographer. Consider your budget, how well he/she performs in different environments and settings, and most importantly if you click with that person. Is he/she open to your requests? Does he/she agree with your vision?
Conduct an interview with each of them. Ask them to bring wedding albums for you to see, preferably something similar to what you want for your wedding. Look carefully at the photos, the style, how the guests look and if they capture the emotional tone of the couple. Check the photographer’s background and experience. Ask him/her how many weddings have shot in how many years. If he/she has shot at the venue where your wedding will be. Talk about the price and what is included in it: how many hours, how many photos, albums, trash the dress session, etc.
Do you think that he/she can make people smile and look natural? Remember that you wedding photographer will be around you all the time. Are you comfortable with him/her?
These are a few of the issues that you should ask about before making your choice. Once you have made up your mind, make sure that you sign a contract which specifically mentions all the details you have agreed upon and that you both sign it.
