Everyone believes that the wedding photos lives for generations, thus finding a wedding photographer for his / her wedding day is one of the most critical and important tasks before your wedding. We cannot take chances and wish to find the perfect one who matches your taste and delivers you the images that captures the candid moments in the most aesthetic way and takes the right shots.
1. Photographing Style
If you wish to make your wedding different then settle on a style and search for the photographer who has specialized on the style. Such as ‘Photojournalism Wedding Photography’ also called as ‘Candid Wedding Photography’, ‘Story Telling Photography’, ‘Traditional Wedding Photography’, or a ‘Modern Traditional Wedding Photography’, ‘Fine Art Wedding Photography’. See and feel which style resonates the best with you and then move forward.
2. Reviewing their Work
Make sure your review a lot of work before you finalizing one. Go through their ‘Paid Assignments’ as well as their ‘Non-Paid Creative Assignments’ which was undertaken to enhance his/her creativity and also reflects the love and passion of his job. If they have posted their work on any Photography forums e.g. 500 px, then go through their work to see what other photographers has commented on his / her work and their knowledge for lighting, composition and tools.
3. Ensure a Perfect Balance for Quality and Budget
You might have a pre-determined limited budget for your wedding, and there is nothing wrong about it. This still does not mean you need to compromise on the quality of the pictures. There are many ways to work around a small budget. For one, I believe it is better to have a bunch of great pictures in the drawer than an album of mediocre or ordinary images. Skip the album for now. Get the pictures and make an album later. Even if you make it a year later it is still fine. Relax and look at what is important. Ensure you focus on the quality of the photography rather than the products you get right now.
4. Deciding from your friend's Referral
This is one the general and easy way to find a Wedding Photographer who did the wedding photography of your friend and you liked his work. The images were great, the album was fantastic and overall the experience was great. These options along with the Photographer’s strong domain knowledge if delivers you the diversity of the wedding images, then this is no brainer.
