Weddings can be extremely stressful. There is so much to plan and many things to consider. It is important that you enjoy the journey along the way, down to every last detail. I hope that these tips will help you to relax, enjoy the planning and ultimately enjoy your day. All things considered, a photographer is one of the most, if not the most important part of your planning for your day. After your wedding, the photos are all that remains of one of the most special moments in your life. That said, it is important that you hire the right photographer. How do I do that you ask? These points will help you in hiring the right photographer for you.
- Do you connect with your photographer? You want to feel comfortable and confident in the photographer you hire. Have you spoken to them? How did you feel when chatting with them? Were they able to answer your questions? Your photographer is someone you should be able to connect with and makes you feel calm and relaxed. If they are stressed, you will be stressed.
- Look at their portfolio. Do you like what you see? Do they have a range of photos to show you not just a few? This will give you an idea if you like their style. Many photographer’s have their own unique style to capture your day so make sure you look at their portfolio to see if you like it.
- Do they have references or testimonials? Read through the testimonials and see what other people have to say about them. What was said about their style? Their work ethic? You can find a lot about a photographer through testimonials so check their website and their facebook page.
- Manage expectations. Just because they have a range of photos on their website that you like, doesn’t mean you will be able to get the exact same shot at your wedding. This is because photography relies on a lot of factors such as type of light and time of day. That being said you can generally get a similar shot. Your day is different to another bride’s so remember that your photos will capture your day, not theirs.
I hope that you have found this article helpful and that it can give you the knowledge and stress free approach to hiring the perfect photographer to capture your love story.
