Wedding Photography Guide

The bottom line is that a great photographer can take your magical day and turn it into memories to last a lifetime. However, a bad photographer can take your special day and turn it into a complete disaster. Therefore, choosing wisely is the most important thing you can do and to accomplish that, you need to take the appropriate steps.

For starters, always interview several photographers. Never make your decision over the phone and never make your decision without seeing the photographers portfolio to iclude other weddings. After all, anyone can tell what you want to hear over the phone but remember the saying, The proof is in the pudding. Stand by this and have the photographers prove to you that they are indeed the one to entrust your day to.

As you talk to various photographers, find one that will allow you to have a say about location photographs before and after the wedding. Typically, the photographer makes all of these decisions, but more and more couples are getting involved and finding their own wonderful backdrops. This is important since sometimes the best photographs taken at a wedding are not the formal ones.

The other thing you need to ensure you get from the photographer is a set agreement on price. This should include the proofs, wedding album, and enlargements along with the time of his or her time and any assistant, if used. Just be sure you are not surprised with any hidden fees for editing, packaging, music, a higher quality copy, and so on. All of this should be included in your fee so if it is not, then you should continue your search.

Do not be nervous about checking the background of the photographer. Check with your local Better Business Bureau, and ask for references. Then, it is your duty and responsibility to follow up on the references. Make sure other couples were thrilled with the services and photographs.

Plan to spend about an hour to two with each photographer during which time you will disclose information about your wedding. The photographer will need to know the start time so he or she can set the schedule to show up early for special shots. Other information will include the length of the wedding, the date, the number of expected guests, how many people in the wedding party, the type of wedding, and so on.

The key to a successful interview is to allow yourself enough time. After all, this decision is big and needs to be made as an educated person and not on a whim. Be open to asking tons of questions and establish a connection with the photographer. You will be entrusting this person with the most sacred day of your life and unlike a movie that can simply be rewound and seen time after time, this is a one shot opportunity. You want it to be done right and with passion. Therefore, you want a photographer with the right attitude, willing and able to please so your memories are special and beautiful.
