Once you find a wedding photographer’s work that you really love, then determine your priorities.
1. Do you feel comfortable around the photographer? This is super important since you will be spending a lot of time with that person on your wedding day.
2. Do you want engagement photos?
3. Maybe for the save the date?
4. Do you want the rehearsal dinner covered?
5. On Your wedding day – will there be a second shooter and do you like his or her work?
6. Will you want an album?
7. Will you want digital negatives and is this an option with the photographer?
8. Will the photographer work with your budget?
9. How many hours does your photographer offer with their packages?
10. Make sure your event / wedding planner reviews their agreement to make sure you are not missing any important information.
Here are a few more tips/ recommendations –
Check out their reviews on-line. See what others are saying about their services and what it is like to work with them.
We have worked with some temperamental photographers, whose work was not worth the high-drama that they brought to the project.
Let the photographers know ahead of time how much time you want to spend taking photos during your cocktail hour. We had a husband and wife photography team take our bride and groom off-site for over two hours. We could not reach the couple nor the photographers to get an update. The cocktail hour was scheduled for one hour and the venue was scrambling to extend the appetizers. When the couple arrived back at the venue, they had to rush and could not enjoy their cocktail hour.
