Have you ever seen photos from an event you attended and realized that you missed so many things - you may have been chatting in a corner during a performance while someone was break-dancing on the dance floor. During your wedding, you're focused on your true love, on calming your nerves, on greeting your guests, and on having a blast. When you sit down to look at your professional photographs, you'll see every part of the day from another person's eyes - everywhere you were, and everywhere you couldn't be. For example, you'll see the morning unfold of your groom getting ready, and you'll see what his face looked like when you were walking down the aisle. What are those moments worth?
To help make this decision, here are 3 important things to consider when looking for a wedding photographer:
Does the photographer specialize in weddings? Weddings are intricate affairs. A big day with lots going on, family members to coordinate, capturing all the special moments (because there are no do-overs!) and all the details that you spent a lot of time on. Instagram, selfie sticks and your family members equipped with great cameras definitely have a place in any wedding, but you want guests to enjoy themselves you can't rely on what they decide to photograph. Make that a fun complement to professional photos. Photography is everywhere, but great photography is challenging. And although it's great to give an amateur opportunities, you don't want your wedding to be their testing time; leave that to a shoot in the park on a Sunday afternoon. You've invested your whole self, and lots of money into this day - it has to be as right as it can possibly be.
Does the photographer listen to you? It's important to ensure that your photographer, while respecting their own style and desire for portfolio-worthy images, will capture what you are looking for during your big day.
Do you 'click' with your photographer? I can't emphasize this enough. You need to be comfortable with your photographer. They will be intimately involved with you on a super important day and you want to have someone that you feel good around, and that will make the photography of your day a positive experience.
