Wedding photography is an exciting field with many photo enthusiasts looking to make some extra money on the side provide cheap wedding photography.
After paying hundreds of just the dress alone, no
matter the church, flowers, reception and all foods and beverages. It is
tempting to book a cheap wedding photographer, after all, photography
is probably the last thing I think.
Choosing your wedding
photographer is the most important thing to do when planning your
wedding. Indeed, it should be the first thing to do.
class wedding photographers are filled months in advance so you do not
leave it until the last minute to book. But he said there might be some
non-reserved dates in order to give them a ring and if the date is free.
Obviously everyone's desire for clothing to be beautiful,
stunning flowers, food to be delicious and reception to be charming.
Wedding Photographer, however, should be one of the main things on your
list of necessities.
If you choose a wedding photographer of poor quality can be felt in every picture you are watching.
Nothing is more important than wedding photography. Why? Well, just
think about it - what happens when the wedding is over? The flowers are
dead, the dress is lyophilized (or what they do is clean) and put in a
box, the cake is eaten, and one year after your wedding you do not even
remember what you ate. All that remains to this day are your memories -
and photos are the gateway to the memories.
Until the end:
1. Does the photographer have many different pictures to show the same
wedding? I would worry if they were all the same wedding. Adequate
professional photographers have taken pictures of the wedding for many
brides are different and reflect on their work. On the other hand, if
you only see a picture of each suspected wedding photographer has only
one good picture of the day. You need to know that they are consistent
and have taken photographs in many different weddings with at least
three different images from each wedding in your gallery or a book. As a
media guide, photos of the last three weddings are appropriate.
Does the photographer listen? A photographer who talks all the time
about how good he is someone who should be careful. If a professional is
not willing to listen, then they are not very professional, I mean how
do you know what you're looking for?
1. Really like this
person? You will pass the most important day of your life with a
stranger, make sure you like them. If the photographer's clashes with
his personality, you could be in a happy day - or at least an awkward
one. Why risk being unhappy in the most important day of your life?
That's why reading the photographer's personality is, in my opinion,
more important than the analysis of their portfolio. Will it be
informal? Offensive? Apart? When you talk with a prospective
photographer, get a feel for them and see if it's someone you'd like to
be friends. If the answer is "yes", then put on your list!
professional has a style. A professional photographer has a distinct
style and taste. Photographs may be black and white or color, you can
see a lot of manipulation in images or not.
3. An amateur
photographer posing as a professional, will not have much of a style.
Your images will be without interest and vulgar. If your style is all
over the place, then you can bet your life that are not professionals.
4. What are the pictures like?
1. Images are flat?
2. Too dark or too light?
3. Can you see the details of the wedding dress or just a white spot?
4. Do people in the pictures look awkward or distracted?
5. Are the group photos look dirty?
6. They are messy history in photos?
7. Are the funds to compete for the attention of people in the picture?
8. Are people looking at the camera?
9. Do you still have your head?
If you answer yes to these questions, then I would say that is not a professional photographer.
There are exceptions however, photojournalism style, most people in the
photos are not looking at the camera and the funds can be a bit
We also ask the photographer, where the photograph was
taken, sometimes you have done the best they can do. This is especially
true with the wedding registry, where registration offices, usually
located in or near industrial areas, where funds are not very
1. Does the photographer look professional? This is
the most difficult to measure, as many people knows how to dress with
style and is easy to learn the technical aspects of the camera, the
terminology to explain the pictures and sell your presentation. You
never know with certainty, but there are some suggestions:
1. Ask them if they do photography as a full time career?
i. If yes, then it is a definite plus.
ii. If they say no, then ask them what else to do. If it's a completely
different field, such as construction work or in the office, it is not a
professional photographer, will have nothing to lose if they spoil
their wedding photos.
1. How long have they been in business?
i. Anything less than a year is suspicious, especially because you do
not have enough experience with the wedding professionals reaching out
of the seminars and courses.
ii. Two or three years is good,
the photographer probably had wedding experience enough to know what to
expect and how to deal with any situation that may arise.
Just over three years is very good (the time it is his full time job)
and shows that are doing very well and have a good reputation.
Ask about the photographers with their friends and acquaintances, to see
what the reputation they have achieved. If it's good, then you can
trust, if not, do not trust them, think of it as an index of confidence.
1. How many weddings have been photographed?
is important if you get a figure of less than 20 then to be on guard and
take all of the other answers when the final decision on whether or not
the books, especially of how many years have been in the business. If
you only have 20 weddings in two years, then maybe not books. 20 is a
very small number of weddings over the past two years, you can expect on
average an expert photographer to photograph at least 20 weddings a
ii. If you get a figure of over 200 and have been in
business for only a couple of years later, blatantly lying. There is no
possible way that they have covered many weddings in two years.
iii. For a company that has been running for two years, a reasonable figure for weddings covered is 60.
1. Does the photographer to go to seminars and if so which ones?
i. If you have not been in all courses or seminars that are completely
self-taught, then they are definitely amateur photographers.
Professional photographers usually attend seminars and courses to keep
cool and honed her skills to a fine point.
ii. If they have
been in some courses when then started have not been committed to
quality and excellence in his photography and probably cut corners a
lot. Be careful with these.
iii. If they attend general courses, not specific to wedding photography then questioned his commitment to his craft.
iv. If you go to specialized courses in wedding photography very often,
then great! This shows that they are committed and focused on his
Often attend specialized courses in specific styles of
wedding photography. This is to stay fresh and on top of my profession. I
learn from books and practice often, but you can only get so far
self-learning and there is absolutely no substitute for practical
experience and training.
1. Does the photographer have a
contract? A photographer who has a contract can not be trusted. If you
purchase any type of service pipe to the photograph must have a
contract. This is to protect you from everything that can go wrong and
so you know exactly what you are getting. The contract can be long and
complicated or short and sweet. Photography contract guards against a
photographer who did not complete their part of the deal. It also
protects them takes the money and run. It also allows a legal right for
the service you have paid and also tells what is allowed to do with the
photographs. The contract must also have attached a section that tells
the photographer for all wedding details.
2. Does the photographer
will ask about the pictures you would like to take in the day, you will
be asked about family relationships and family policy? The photographer
should ask about the photos you would like in the day, a wedding is a
great event that brings together many distant family members and usually
only today to photograph together. Many family members are coming from
far away and the photographer should know about these important people. A
wedding is a very emotional event and the photographer should ask and
know about potential problems between family members not to start any
fight. Besides knowing all this, the photographer should ask for a link
within the wedding party, it is usually an usher on both sides of the
family, someone who knows all the family members by sight. Remember that
the photographer probably has never met his family before them the
appointment of someone who knows everyone who will be there is very
important to get all you want to shoot in the right place at the right
3. Price: "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!"
Honestly, would not be in your photography budget the same way I would
like to see in the budget, for example, your wedding dress.
might get lucky and find a talented photographer and cheap for under £
500 for a full day coverage, but like most things in life you get what
you pay and the end result will most likely with nothing to do with you
ordered, poor quality photographs malformed or not all the pictures!
2. If you can find the budget to get out of the range and the next
lower level (for example, £ 500 to £ 1,000 to cover half a day) that
will expand your options for truly professional photographers and
largely, no doubt, finish with stunning photos that last a lifetime.
3. If you move to a higher level (eg £ 2.000 - £ 4.000) their options
expand exponentially, as it now is not limited to photographers in your
local market, you can start the source of the photographers who are
willing to travel nationally.
4. The price of service is obviously
important to you, as you probably have already spent thousands of people
at the wedding itself. It makes no sense to skimp on photography. As
mentioned above, everything else is eaten, forgotten, or put into
storage, photography pretty much all you have to start your day to show
Everyone has a budget, try your best to stretch the
budget and book a professional photographer for as long as you can get,
not be disappointed.
