What should you consider when choosing a wedding photographer?

As a wedding photographer, you wear many hats.  You sometimes are the planner, stylist, or server.  You are very versatile and always there to help your couples.  The more relaxed they are, the better the image result.  When we wear the hat of creative planner, your wedding photographer is there to help you gain the end result you are looking for.  So how do you find that wedding photographer?  I thought back about some of the situations from last year, and tried to compile 7 things, I think, that will help you in your search for a wedding photographer.  We encourage you to ask this of us, and every photographer you contact.


The first thing you need to decide is how high a priority your wedding photography is to you. Do you have a tiny budget, no clue about what even happens at weddings, and just want to make sure you capture some memories of our wedding day? Is wedding photography the most important thing to you other than marrying your love? Remember the saying you get what you pay for?

If your wedding photographs are one of your highest priorities factor that into your budget.  Knowing and deciding that as a couple will help with your search for a wedding photographer from the beginning.  The cheapest option in wedding photography, is 9 times out of 10 the regretful option.
