Characteristics of a Great Wedding Photographer

PowerPoint Presentation:

It’s no secret that arranging for a wedding photographer can be one of the more nerve-wracking tasks when preparing for the big day. After all, it isn’t as if you can just do it over if they don’t turn out well or if your photographer doesn’t show up. When it comes to wedding photography, you want to make sure that you choose the perfect photographer for your big day. Here are some characteristics of a great wedding photographer to help get you started.

Experience:

Experience Chances are, if the photographer you are considering has worked many weddings and continue to get hired, they have something good going for them. It probably isn’t necessary to find a photographer with decades of experience, but a solid foundation in wedding photography is essential to get someone who knows the ropes and will do the best job for you.

Professional Portfolio:

Professional Portfolio Another characteristic of a great wedding photographer is a professional portfolio highlighting his or her previous work. Look for portfolios that have shots from a wide variety of angles and in several different locations. It would also help if the portfolio contained the same types of shots you want to have, so you’ll know exactly what to expect.

Great References:

Great References References are an important part of a profession like wedding photography , so you want to be able to speak with past clients to get their opinion. If you hear several glowing reviews, you’re probably on the right track. Likewise, if you hear the same issues coming up over and over, it may be wise to look elsewhere. And if the photographer is reluctant to provide you with references, it’s definitely a sign to look somewhere else.

Versatility:

Versatility Things don’t always go according to plan with wedding photography, so a photographer that is versatile and can go with the flow is a valued asset. You want someone who doesn’t get flustered or upset and can make adjustments on the fly if necessary. This is one area that you can research when speaking to the individual references the photographer provides.

Preparation:

Preparation Overall preparation in the form of a back up plan and dressing the part will help give you peace of mind and ensure everything looks right and goes off without a hitch. Make sure your photographer isn’t going to show up in jeans and a t-shirt or similar clothes that are unsuitable for a wedding. Also, make sure there is a suitable replacement at the ready if the photographer is sick or can’t make it for whatever reason.

Competitive Rates:

Competitive Rates A great wedding photographer won’t charge too much, and he won’t charge too little for his services. You don’t want to pay more than you have to, but you also don’t want to go chasing the cheapest prices in town, because the quality will usually be the same. Look to pay competitive rates for wedding photography, and try to find a photographer that meets as many of the previous characteristics as possible.
