I’m a wedding photographer, and I’m about to tell you how to choose your wedding photographer!
Let’s get one thing straight!! Your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event filled with unforgettable moments, and choosing the right photographer is crucial to capturing those precious memories. Beyond just their technical skills, there are three key aspects to consider when selecting your wedding photographer: their editing style, their personality, and their wedding day process. Let’s dive into each of these factors to ensure your wedding photos reflect the magic of your special day!
The first step in finding the perfect wedding photographer is falling in love with our editing style. Every photographer has a unique approach to post-processing, which greatly influences the mood and aesthetic of your wedding photos. Start by browsing through photographers’ portfolios and pay close attention to our color palettes, use of light, and overall vibe. Do you prefer timeless and classic images, vibrant and colorful photos, or a more moody and artistic look? If you love a timeless, classic, brighter editing style, don’t even worry about inquiring with a photographer who edits completely opposite. There are VERY few photographers that edit differently for each wedding. We all master our specific style because that’s what we love! It’s essential to choose a photographer whose editing style resonates with your vision for your wedding day!
Your photographer will be by your side throughout the wedding day, so it’s vital to select someone whose personality aligns with yours. We are literally with you more on your wedding day than your future spouse, so you need to love your photographer! Schedule meetings or video calls with potential photographers to get to know them better. Are they friendly, approachable, and easy to communicate with? Do they make you feel comfortable and understood? A good rapport with your photographer can ease any pre-wedding jitters and help you relax in front of the camera, resulting in more natural and candid shots! Look for a photographer who not only captures your moments but also becomes a trusted friend in the process.
A skilled wedding photographer doesn’t just take pictures; they tell a story. Ask about a their approach to documenting your day. Do they have a well-thought-out plan to capture the most significant moments, from getting ready to the last dance? Are they skilled at anticipating candid moments and emotions? Are they prepared for the unexpected? A great wedding photographer will blend into the background when needed, ensuring that they capture the genuine, unscripted moments that make your wedding unique. They should also be organized, punctual, personable, and adaptable, as weddings can be unpredictable and people can be stressed!
Choosing your wedding photographer is a significant decision, as they are entrusted with preserving your once in a lifetime memories for generations to come. By carefully considering their editing style, personality, and wedding day process, you can find the perfect photographer for you who will not only capture your day beautifully but also make the entire experience enjoyable and stress-free. Your wedding photos will serve as a timeless reminder of the love and joy you shared on your special day! Cheers to wedding planning!!!
