Choosing Your Soulmate is the Easy Part (Now Choose Your Wedding Photographer)

There are some people in life that you will forever hold near and dear to your heart. Your parents, maybe your siblings, hopefully your significant other, your children...and yes, your wedding photographer.

Choosing the right photographer for your wedding is one of the most important decisions you will make during the planning process. Your wedding photos are going to be a lasting memory of your special day, so it's crucial to choose a photographer who can capture all of the important moments and create beautiful, timeless images.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right wedding photographer:

1. Start your search early: It's important to start looking for a wedding photographer as early as possible. Good photographers tend to get booked up quickly, so you don't want to miss out on your preferred choice. I suggest being ready to book your photographer as soon as you lock in your date with your venue. If you're going to seek a photographer in Facebook groups, try adding the date, location, and budget range to narrow down your choices.

2. Look at portfolios: Take the time to look at the portfolios, websites, and social media accounts of potential photographers. This will give you a good idea of their style and whether it's a good fit with your own preferences. Make sure to look at full weddings as well as individual photos to get a sense of how the photographer captures the entire event.

3. Consider your budget: Wedding photography can be expensive, so it's important to consider your budget when selecting a photographer. Determine how much you're willing to spend and then look for photographers whose prices are within your budget.

4. Meet with potential photographers: Once you've narrowed down your list of potential photographers, schedule a meeting with each one to discuss your wedding and their services. This is a great opportunity to get to know the photographer and their personality, as well as to ask any questions you might have. If you're schedule doesn't allow this, consider a Zoom meeting instead.

5. Discuss the details: Make sure to discuss all the details with your photographer, including the date, location, and timeline of your wedding. You should also discuss the types of photos you want and any specific shots that are important to you. If you're looking for prints, albums, or wall art, make sure your photographer is capable of fulfilling this for you.

6. Check references: Before making a final decision, check the photographer's references. Look for client reviews on their website or Google Reviews. This will give you an idea of their experience and the quality of their work. This decision should not only be made by looking at images, but the over all client experience.

7. Trust your instincts: Ultimately, you should choose a photographer who you feel comfortable with and who you trust to capture your special day. If you have a good feeling about a particular photographer, it's likely that they're the right choice for you.

In summary, choosing the right wedding photographer is an important decision that requires careful consideration. You will be spending a significant amount of time with your photographer, so choose wisely. By following these tips, you can find a photographer who will capture all the important moments of your special day and create beautiful, lasting memories that you'll cherish forever.
