Getting a wedding photographer is either at the top or at the bottom of your list. There’s no grey area here. You either like good photos or you are at a place where it really doesn’t matter to you.
I hope this article will help you decide. For us personally it was easy, we loved photos and we wanted good photos for our big day.
The most important part of getting a wedding photographer is getting someone who can take good photos of you. You need to find a style you like. Then you must do enough research about the photographer to make sure that he or she is what you are looking for.
Take a good look at photos they have taken, go through their portfolio together and make sure you as a couple you have the same expectations. It is also good to talk to people who have already made use of their services.
It is good to meet up with them, either do an engagement shoot or something smaller to make sure that the photographer will be able to capture what you want. This will also give you an idea of the timelines the person sets and keeps to and the quality of the photographers work.
Now if you think it’s not a good idea to spend so much money on a wedding photographer. Think of all the money you are already spending on everything and the amount of time you are putting into this day. Now you have no one to capture it all. What will your children and grandchildren see of this day? You will never be able to show anybody your beautiful dress in detail, any of your table decoration and your first kiss will be lost as well.
Getting a wedding photographer is maybe one of the most important decisions you will have to make.
