To ensure you and the event is flawless consider these three points when selecting your photographer.
Set a Budget
It might seem silly to put 10% of your wedding budget into your photos, but years from now, your grandchildren will thank you. Photos are the physical things, the tangible items that you have that shows all of the hours you spent planning the event. Try to make peace with that fact that you will spend anywhere from $2,000-$6,500 on photos depending on when and where you get married and what type of package you choose.
Nothing captures the moment like a professional photographer. You will be thankful you sprung for the love guru who knows how to capture the essence of your day.
Add Your Personality
If you already have your mantel clear and dusted so it is ready for the wedding photos of you and your handsome hubby to be, then you probably want to consider what type of photo package you want. Are you more traditional or modern? Are you fun, flirty or serious? The type of personality that you and your groom are will most likely set the tone for the entire wedding. Selecting a photographer depends on your final outcome. Each photographer has their own style. Pick one that matches the vibe you carry. Do you want single prints a DVD or CD with digital images or do you prefer tangible prints so you can put them in an album? All of these options should be considered before picking a photographer.
Consider your Venue
Are you having an outdoor or indoor wedding? When you look through photographer’s books, look at their style and how well they take photos in the day and night and inside and outside.
