4 Tips to Hire a Suitable Wedding Photographer
When you prepare your wedding checklist, it is most likely you focus on the outfits, the jewellery, the makeup, the food, and the decor. However, one mistake most couples do is that they do not pay much attention to the wedding photographer, who plays a predominant role in creating everlasting memories for you and your family.
Your wedding photos are a beautiful account of your most special occasion, capturing the fun, the embarrassment, the tears, almost everything! A wedding album allows you to relive all those memories for a lifetime. It is therefore imperative for you to choose your wedding photographer wisely.
Here are a few tips you must keep in mind while zeroing in on your wedding photographer:
First and foremost, make sure you have a look at the photographer’s portfolio. If it manages to capture your attention, it is worth going ahead with the photographer, or else give it a second thought.
Next, ensure that the photographer has managed to capture everything- candids, emotions, a bit of posing, decor pictures, and snaps of friends and family.
Lastly, make sure the pictures are not highly edited. Sometimes, it may be an attempt by the photographer to cover the poor quality of images.
2. Personality and Style
When getting hitched, a couple blindly trusts its photographer. It is important that you feel an instant connection and have at least a slight liking for your photographer. Building a rapport is key. If there is a lack of comfort level from the beginning itself, rethink!
Make sure your photographer has a likable personality so that friends, family, and children can approach him or her to get clicked.
3. Worth the price
It is not necessary that a high-end photographer will ensure the best results. Don’t forget to clear out the pricing structure and the budget. It is best if you hire a photographer who has a variety of packages to offer. Ask him if he can tailor-make a package for you. Always remember to discuss extra costs or hidden costs like tax, transport, if meals will be included, etc.
Go through the photographer’s website and social media pages to know more about what people have to say about him. Speak to his previous clients, their family and friends to know more about their experience.
