Tips for Finding The Perfect Wedding Photographer
So, you’ve got your gorgeous venue and the rings, but what about a professional photographer to capture all of your special moments? In the latest blog post from Verona Couture, we take a look at some top tips to help you find a photographer to capture your wedding day.
Choose Your Style
Before trying to track down a photographer, you will want to consider the style of photography you want your wedding photos to be taken in. Some of the most popular styles of wedding photos are:
Being candid and spontaneous, documentary photos are fun and can show a different side to your wedding, such as shots of the favours, decor and action.
If you opt for documentary style photography, you can expect to see images of you and your loved ones taking to the dance floor, being immersed in conversion and performing a toast to you and your hubby.
Many people like a mix of both documentary and portrait style photos so they have a balance of posed and natural images, showing several aspects of their big day.
Portrait photos are stylised and posed for. These photos hold a certain nostalgia for many people as they are reminiscent of the typical wedding photos your mum and dad or grandma and grandad may have had taken on their wedding day.
These images are typically of you and your guests in front of various backdrops, however, that is not to say that there isn’t room for creativity with this style. If your wedding venue is particularly unique or you have an outside area, you may find that this style of photography works perfectly.
Vintage style photography has made a big comeback in recent years. As camera technologies developed, everyone wanted modern-looking images, but it goes without saying that sepia tone and black and white images are once again being adored.
Vintage photography holds a certain romance all of its own and that makes it the perfect accompaniment for your wedding day. Both posed and candid shots can work well in this style.
Once you’ve settled on your style of photography, you’ll need to ensure you find the best person for the job, here are our top five tips:
● Research your photographer and set up interviews.
● Ask for full albums, not just a few of the best images.
● Compare prices and packages.
● Ensure your personalities work well together – your photographer will be attending your wedding day and giving you instructions for your photos.
● Get post-production details – ask how long it will take for your photos to be sent to you and/or edited.
