Today we are writing a post that will help brides hire their wedding photographer. Many brides consider photography as the most important aspect of their wedding. Photos give you the chance to look back at your wedding years down the road.
Different Types of Wedding Photography
There are about a million different photography styles to choose from. We will list a few to give you an understanding: traditional, contemporary, modern, candid, artistic, contemporary, documentary, formal, and reportage are just a few types of wedding photography.
Since there are so many different wedding photography styles to choose from, let us give you some important advice. Don’t worry about styles at all! Our advice is to choose your photographer by looking at their portfolio.
Every Wedding Photographer is Different
No two photographers are the same. Every photographer has a different style. Each professional is unique and takes photos in their own way. The only way to get an idea of what to expect is to take a look at the work they have done in the past.
Shopping for a Wedding Photographer
As you are looking for a professional to take your photos, there are two ways to look at their portfolios. First, you can set up an appointment for a consultation. You will sit down with the photographer and take a look at their past work.
Second, you can use the internet. Most professionals have websites, blogs, Facebook pages or some kind of online presence. These professionals make sure their best work is available for you to view online.
We suggest that you look at a few dozen photographers and compare their photos. Choose 3 or 4 of your favorite professionals and set up consultations with each of them. Then you can see more of their work and discuss pricing etc.
