How to Choose a Wedding Photographer


The photos of your wedding will be the most vivid memory you will have of your great day so it is important that you hire a good professional. If you don't know how to choose it, take note of these professional tips.


There are many things to consider when it comes to finding the right photographer for you, of course, there are many photographers to choose from and it will be a bit overwhelming at first. So first take a deep breath. You can calmly choose the ideal photographer for your event.

1. The right photography style

Consider your style and photography style that you would like for your wedding day. Do you prefer a traditional style? Photojournalist? Editorial? By defining your preferred style, you can align a photographer who has a style and vision similar to yours. 

2. Think about the coverage you need for your event and your budget

Would you like to have coverage from the bride's arrangement? Until the first dance? Do you want to receive impressions, albums? Write what you absolutely need, what you would like, and what you have always dreamed of. Start considering your budget for photography (usually photography takes 10-12% of your overall budget).

3. To search, search, search

When you are viewing photographers’ websites do not forget to also visit their blogs and facebook pages, where they will put their most recent works. Remember that the world is no longer so big, if you don't find anyone local to make you 'sigh' - open your horizons to photographers outside your area. Make a list of photographers who align with your style, your vision, and are around your budget, and make appointments to meet them in person.

4. Know your complete portfolio

Ask to see several entire weddings to ensure that the quality of their work is constant and that their true images reflect the different personalities of each couple.

5. Search for a connection

It is important that there is a high level of respect and trust so that you feel free to be natural around him or her. A good photographer who is part of your intimate circle will be able to create stunning images, full of emotion, and sincere happiness. 

6. Take into account his/her experience as a wedding photographer
Record how many years s/he has been specifically wedding photographer and how many weddings he has taken. Remember that wedding photography is very different from any other type of photography.  

7. Quality and consistency

Make sure that the quality of his images, of his prints, and of the materials used in the albums is to your liking.  

8. Find out who will take the photos on your wedding day

There are studios that hire several weddings for the same date and generally do not guarantee you a photographer specifically. It is not ideal that if you fell in love with a style, suddenly another person arrives who you did not know and do not know what style you have.
