Think about it, your baker will bring the cake and leave to your florist delivers everything again and leave, your wedding planner will take care of you from time to time, but while the photographer will always be there recording every time. Once you realize this search and the "wedding photography" or "wedding photographer" on Google and find yourself looking at a list of between 2 to 12 million results. You do not have the time or desire to start clicking and searching through them all so here are ten questions to help you find your perfect wedding photographer.
1. You may not know what you want until you know what you want.
Because there is no exclusivity in the love and passion with others
wedding portraits should reflect that uniqueness. As a result, it is
necessary to understand and be able to articulate the style of
photography that best suits you. This involves asking two questions:
a. What kind of movies do you and your girlfriend like to watch movies
and what types you see yourself in? The film (s) you choose will give
you an idea of the feeling about all of the photographs is likely to
want to have. If you like movies based family then you will love the
pictures that have an emphasis on family and friends. On the other hand,
if you like action romance, high drama or movies, then you might be
more interested in photographers who are able to produce spectacular
pictures that focus on you.
b. What magazines do you like
seeing yourself in? Each magazine has a customer base demographics. And
this is not by accident. Do you like the pictures of Vogue, GQ, Modern
Bride, or W? Look through magazines and find images you would like to
see himself and cut the pictures for future reference.
2. Search the web photographer
Because there are so many websites with only the best keywords to find
what you want can be a daunting task so here are some ideas to make it a
little easier. Use words that are specific to you about the kind of
wedding photography you are looking for. You will also have to look in
the words of which are getting married and / or where you want to find
your photographer. Here are some ideas:
* [City] wedding photography
* [The city] wedding photographer (s)
* Wedding Photographer (s) in [City] [State]
* Wedding Photography in [City] [State]
These will give you a number of results to choose from. Each of these
searches will give you a list of different photographers. You can also
search advertising sites like http://www.atlantanbrides.com Wedding and
These sites will
give results more than enough to look through. Once you see a list from
which to visit many sites as possible, but only to look at the photos.
Its goal is to find a photographer with the photos you can see and be
proud and excited to show your friends and family.
3. Photographer Website
site is the gallery of personal wedding photographers of his best work.
The purpose of visiting the web site is not only assess whether you
like the style of the photographer, but also to get more aquatinted with
the photographer as well. Once you click on the website then take some
time to visit the "we" or "bio" of the website. Meet the photographer a
bit. Once done wonders if it was someone who could make friends. You may
want to make a list of photographers to compare. However, no matter how
good or bad that the photos are, if you do not think you friends with
the photographer after the photographer should probably not considered.
While perusing the galleries began to write some notes about what you
like about the photos, if you can see from the pictures, and if they
refer others to the photographer. Do not be shy about his comments, be
honest, as if watching his own photos. If you are not impressed with the
photos and quickly move to the next page. Never stay at a site longer
than necessary. ** Remember to resist the temptation to look at the
prices or unrelated categories like children's portrait and / or
pictures of senior year, while in the website. You are on a mission so
always remember to stay on task. Once it was determined that as the
photos on the website, bookmark that site and move to the next. You,
your best friend, and his nemesis If you really trust my "first
impression" in a decision so important? I can only answer a resounding
"YES". Our "intuition" is typically comprised of knowledge, past
experiences, and perceptions of future events based on the knowledge
learned. Make a great decision that will be a matter of research and
personal experience. So take your time to learn and see as much as you
can so that when it comes time to make this important decision is going
to be excited and very confident that made this decision.
4 - Location, Location, Location
Believe it or not, not all photographers can produce artistic portraits
in any given place. As a bride, you have to be honest with yourself and
with your photographer about your expectations of photography for that
day. You should always remember that you are hiring a photographer for a
specific reason, to capture individual moments of that day so that
those memories will never be forgotten. An important component of your
day will be the location and venue for the meeting. You need to know the
place photographic expectations and constraints. Here are some
questions to ask your venue:
1) Does the site allow flash photography?
2) Is there a requirement of insurance?
2) Is there a time limit in any place that the photographer should
know? (You can ask the seller of this issue and let the photographer
know about this.)
3) Is there a place in the seat that you can
not photograph? You need to know policies based on photographs and where
they can and can not be taken.
4) Request the place if there
is something that the photographer has to know you have not asked.
(Phrase this issue as it did with the others.)
5) What was the
worst violation of campus policies photo? (This will give you an idea of
its seriousness about its policies and what is important to them.) Be
sure to bring these responses with the photographer during your

your supplier of personal recommendations and see the photographer's
website. Put the sites that best fit your style in the list of potential
When viewing web pages, ask yourself: -
* Does the photographer who has the capacity to adapt to their
environment? (Is there a variety of photographs of a variety of places?)
* It is the creative photographer enough to be able to make
high-quality pictures anywhere? (Is that the photographer creative in
* It is the general character of the site something
you like? (Would you be sure to recommend to a friend at the same site
for its advice and recommendations to the photographers)
quality of professional wedding photographers know how to use their
surroundings as a backdrop for romantic portraits. If you are having a
candlelight wedding photographer will then have the equipment to
properly expose for the setting of extremely low light. If you are
getting married on the beach, then the photographer will need equipment
and expertise to ensure that the sun not the power of her beautiful
dress and a smile.
5 - Free book in advance as soon as possible !!!!!
The key here is to make sure you are happy and comfortable with your
photographer. You never want to choose and decide on a photographer for
lack of time or pressure of the photographers, friends or family. Give a
little time and space. This is really up to you. You need to feel
comfortable and confident with your decision. Once you feel comfortable
and confident decision after signing the contract and be happy that this
decision is out of the way.
6 - Call or contact your point of view Professional Photographer
you have a list of photographers then start calling! When you talk with
your photographer perspective, for the first time there are some things
you may want to consider. Let the photographer know you've seen his
website and are impressed with what you have seen and would like to ask
some questions that were not covered in the website. When talking with a
photographer has to be seen as an interview. Remember, you are hiring a
professional to do a job that can not be repeated. There are no
"do-off" with photos of the wedding so try to meet photographers the
best possible way.
Here are some things to consider:
You must approach this call as an interview. It is really to find out
what this photographer is coming and decide whether to meet with the
photographer in person.
* When the photographer answers the
phone, how do you think? Happy? Sad? Annoying? O happy to talk with you?
Remember, you are calling the photographers business phone. The
photographer knows who is calling for a business reason. [There is no
excuse for the photographer to meet anyone who is not happy and glad to
speak with you.]
* Ask open-ended questions like: What do you like
about weddings, how long has photographed weddings, which he started in
* Ask all the questions you can think about your personality and wedding photography career.
* Ask about availability of the date and place of the wedding and reception.
* How long has the photographer been in business?
* What makes the best wedding photographer like to photograph?
* Are you a photographer full time or part time? (The purpose of this question is still just to see who this person is.)
Aspects to consider: When making the appointment that the photographer
knows where you live and the hours they are able to meet. Also know what
place where the photographer is coming from then ask the photographer
to be a good place to meet in the middle. You want to listen to see if
the photographer is flexible enough to get out of your / your way. If
the photographer is unable to meet with you on the dates you have given
then the photographer should offer some suggestions to help the two of
you after the interview, if you're happy and your intuition says yes,
then do an appointment.
WORD OF CAUTION: Professional
photographers make their living on providing photographic services and
no phone call. The photographer may have a "strong impulse" to meet them
in person. This is not bad! The bad thing is the way we urge you to
make an appointment. The photographer must talk with you and help you
make the best decision possible photo. Be careful if the photographer is
denied (tone or verbal) to answer questions and want to quickly set up
an appointment. However, if the photographer is open to you and offers
tips and questions about what you want, then the photographer has
already decided that you are a good match for them and want to make an
appointment with you. As always, if you feel comfortable, then make an
appointment. Since there are more photographers than it could meet in a
year is important to set appointments only 3-4 photographers. You may
want to spend four hours of each session. This takes into account travel
back and forth and talk to the photographer. You can see then that if
you're not careful you could end up making the search for a photographer
of his new job full time.
7 - packages, collections, INVESTMENTS
far we have talked about the process of getting the best photographer
for your wedding, but have not even touched the issue of what is really
going to get at the end of the day. Some photographers call the content
of what you get packages, collections, investments, or a commission to
supply you with your wedding photos a day. Surprisingly, most
photographers offer the same content as other pictures. The important
thing is getting what you would like to have for the future and not what
you think you need now. You want an album by the story you want to show
their families and grandchildren in the future. Slide shows are nice
because you can have stereo to the photos inheritance. Digital negatives
and reprints: Reprints Some photographers will sell directly to you.
This means you only receive copies of your wedding day (this is
independent of its disk) when you pay the photographer for them. These
prices vary depending on the size of the footprints and the number you
requested. Other photographers to create a combination package where you
get a CD / DVD featuring a limited or unlimited number of photos. You
may be able to make use of these photos on your own or you may be able
to see on a computer and email them with no option to make your own
reprints. Albums: Albums, albums and albums! As the wedding industry
grows, more and more companies are offering drives making it important
to see a disk model you choose. It is important to see the disk model
because two photographers can use names similar to the albums at the end
are not so similar.
Questions about the album you should ask:
1 - How many pages are on the album?
2 - What options do I have on the album?
3 - On average, how many photos fit on the disc? Some photographers
offer other products, but the main thing you want to consider is what
you are looking for. Do you want to have plenty of copies to give away
and a great album to show your friends and family, or looking for
something small, like an album the day? These are questions that you
will consider carefully. Whatever your choice, make sure there is clear
communication between you and your photographer.
8 - Contracts: Who needs them?
A friend once told me that "has contracts to friends of friends and
enemies to kill each other." Due to the nature of the service is asking
the photographer is very important that you get everything agreed in
writing. Make sure the type of album, number of pages, and the amount of
time that is required of you is a photographer in writing. The reason
this is important is because if something were to go wrong, then it may
be considered in court. Contracts to keep people a little more honest
than if I had one. Personally, I go about everything in the contract
before signing the contract. In this way, everyone understands what is
happening and communicating what is expected is clear.
9 - INTERVIEWER PHOTOGRAPHER
The photographer should interview like everything to be interviewing
photographers. As stated before, "not everyone is for all" applies here
too. The photographer should ask questions that identify your
personality and the personality of your relationship with your
boyfriend. I always ask questions such as:
1 - When the two met?
2 - How long before the date that engaged?
3 - What is the most important detail in your wedding you most excited about?
4 - Is the place you have chosen really important to you?
The photographer has to ask questions that will tell a little about the
couple and what is important to them. If the photographer does not know
what is important to you, then the photographer will most likely not
photograph it is important to you. This most likely will result in not
completely satisfied with your final product. In short, the photographer
should have a good idea who the couple and what is important to them.
10 - The last question you should ask yourself.
What is your first impression? Remember that the decisions you make can
not be based on what I thought was true or what he hopes is true. The
best answer I can make about the decision is based on the information we
have now. In short, consider your instincts, remember what you want
from the photographer and the photographer produces stylish, and have a
good time choosing the best photographer to photograph him.
