Feeling lost when it comes to choosing your wedding photographer? I’m here to guide you through the process with 3 easy steps.

1. Make Sure You Know, Like, and Trust Them.

Your photographer will be spending a lot of time with you on one of the most important days of your life and you’ll want to feel at ease in their presence. Make sure you read their “about me” page on their website so you can get to know their wedding photography philosophy and their personality. If you like what you see online, it’s a great idea to schedule an in-person meeting if possible to get to know them better and talk about your venue, wedding day vision, and more. By meeting with a potential photographer you’ll get a much better sense of who they are as a person and whether the two of you are a good fit.

2. Make Sure You Like Their Shooting and Editing Style

Modern photographers’ shooting styles vary from posed and dramatic to fun and natural. Post processing and editing can vary just as much with some having a more light, bright, and airy style to more dark and moody. There’s no right or wrong way when it comes to shooting and editing styles, you’ll just have to decide on your personal preference.

3. Check Out Their Blog, Website, and Social Media

When considering several different photographers, be sure to check out their website and blog where you’ll be able to see past work. If you’re not already following them on social media, this is a great way to get a more personal look into who they are. While experienced photographers will update their website regularly with their latest work, you’ll get to see their most recent work on social media where they’ll share sneak peeks of current projects.

In conclusion, the most important factors are making sure you like your photographer as a person and that you’re a good fit for each other. Next, you’ll want to make sure you like their photography style and that you’ll love seeing your images in an album for years to come. Do your research, ask newly wed couples for recommendations, and choose the photographer you know will help make your wedding day as comfortable and stress free as possible.
