How to Choose a Wedding Photographer


Transcript:
The question is, how do you choose a wedding photographer? I think there are a three basic ways beyond just talking to the photographer themselves. So the first off is, I would say is a general thing. You want to talk to the photographer, make sure they understand, uh, you know, your vision for the wedding, the kind of photos you want to have taken a that you basically just connect on a personal level. If, uh, you’re not having that personal connection. Don’t be afraid to, to walk away. Now, beyond that, what can you do? And I think again, there’s three ways to, uh, that you want to use to determine how your wedding photographer, the first is you’re going to want to check out their portfolio, their portfolio. You’ll want to see the portfolio they’ll have on hand as part of their studio, uh, that they’ll have a, perhaps on a laptop or ipad or something like that.

They definitely should have a online portfolio as well. This could be on their website as well as things like instagram, facebook where you can go and check out their work again because you want to make sure that they take good photographs and the type of photos you want to have taken of your own wedding. You will then want to proceed to a, looking on their online reviews, uh, where you want to look at foursquare, a yelp or google reviews, facebook reviews, uh, just google searches where you want to see what are people saying about the photographer, you know, how, what were they like to work with, what was their pricing? A they prompt in responding to any questions or prompt in turning back the photos to you there. Is there any issues that, there were issues where they are able to be resolved? So one.

And then finally you want to talk to brides, uh, that were customers. So you want to see again, you want to find out what was the photographer liked to work with? Uh, were there any issues, any gotchas or anything to be on the lookout for? These are all things that you don’t want to be, uh, on the, you know, basically just basic things you would do for any time you’re going to make a major purchase, particularly something that’s important as a wedding photographer for your wedding ceremony. Uh, and finally, I would also say is that here, uh, one last thing is that make sure you get contracts, uh, that, uh, um, that you want to make sure it leaves you. Take your basic understanding, what, what is the person going to deliver and what will be your recourse that they fail to fail to deliver it and never pay a full price until, uh, until the final delivery of the actual photos.
