How to Choose a Wedding Photographer That’s Right for You

Jan 23, 2014 No Comments



Choosing someone to entrust your very important memories to can be a daunting task. Combine that stress with the sheer number of photographers out there and you might find yourself getting overwhelmed really quickly! We’ll break it down for you in 4 quick steps…



Every photographer has a specific style for capturing images as well as editing them. Many couples make the mistake of hiring a photographer, then find themselves asking for their images to be edited in a different style. Avoid the hassle and seek out a company that already has images you adore showcased on their website.  Keep an eye out for consistency in their images too!


You’ll be working with this person for many many months to come and it’s really important that you jive with their personality. Finding someone with whom you and your love feel comfortable with from the beginning is key!  And you’re a lot more likely to smile for the camera when you enjoy the company of the person standing behind it.


Testimonials and work of mouth are both great resources. A photographer’s reputation for delivery is a good indication of ability. This is also a great reason to make sure you review your wedding vendors once your day is over. There are thousands of other brides out there who would LOVE to hear your feedback on who you chose to be part of your big day!


As with most things, you get what you pay for. Beware of packages that seem too attractive. A good indication of how much you should be spending on your wedding day photography is 10% of your total wedding budget.  Prioritize your wedding vendors and don’t skimp on what’s most important to you!
