You are getting married and your wedding day is coming up fast! Naturally one of the most important considerations is the wedding photos and finding a good wedding photographer.
Most likely, you wedding day is going to be a long and possibly stress-filled day. You will undoubtedly be spending many hours with your photographer. Make sure when first meeting with your prospective photographer that you feel comfortable with him or her. It will certainly be reflected in the photos if you are not feeling relaxed or natural and comfortable around them.
With regard to price, if the photos and wedding albums are very important to you, and they ought to be, as you will be looking at the pictures for the rest of your lives, make sure you don’t cut back on the price just to save a few dollars. Lower prices don’t always get you the best results with regard to professional wedding photographers and you often do get what you pay for, as the saying goes.
Visit the website of the photographer in question and view some of their work online. If you like what you see, you will most likely want to see more work up close and in person by meeting with them and seeing their other albums, photos, portfolios as well as getting a feel for them as as person. It may be a good idea to try to visualize yourself in some of the photos and see how that feels.
One last bit of advice is to make sure you are in contact with the photographer often and are communicating your needs, wants and concerns about your photographs. Make a list of what kinds of photos you will want to have and how important it is to capture certain members of the family or guests, bridal party and so forth. Be sure to mention which are the important family members or friends and loved ones you would like the photographer to focus on. It is always a good idea to appoint a friend or relative as the person to organize and gather the individuals when they are needed for group photos and portraits throughout the wedding day, so you are freed up to think about enjoying your wedding day.
