A wedding photographer is there to make sure every special moment and detail from your magical day is captured. He or she has the responsibility to take snaps of everything from name cards on tables to the hair do of the bride and the make up artist getting her ready. All of this is so you and your guests don’t have to rely solely on memory when thinking about all of the special details of the day.
I completely agree with people that think investing in the perfect photographer is one of the biggest parts of the day to organise. I asked a good buddy of mine who is an Asian wedding photographer London to share some insights on what every bride and groom should look out for.
It’s Worth Paying For The Best
If you’re on a very tight budget then you can always find a good deal with a novice photographer who is new and trying to build a portfolio, but it is best to find someone perfect and most of all who you trust. Remember that being perfect comes with lots of experience. Work out your budget early on before you start contacting them – be prepared to pay good money for the one you really want.
Checkout Their Portfolio
One thing you absolutely must do is go through the portfolio of each and every photographer on your list. Of course you’ll be looking at wedding photos but also the different style and moments they capture – when you’ve found a group of photos that really appeal to you then you have found your photographer. If you find those photos with the first photographer you meet, don’t stop there, make sure you check out all the other options too.
Choose The Right Style
A real pro photographer will be able to distinguish between all the subtleties of a wedding. They are experts at knowing when to snap a photo of the groom as he first sees his bride walking down the aisle, getting that confetti shot just right and have a contingency plan if it rains. I would say that you should be flexible and allow your photographer to be creative, this will get you the best photos. Some styles to consider are documentary, contemporary, a traditional approach or even fine art.
