Your Five Point Wedding Photographer Checklist!
Talent Level. First, check out the talent level of the artist. Because you know what you like (and what you don’t!), this is purely subjective. The easiest way to start is by viewing online portfolios and finding photography and images that match a style that you like.
Personality. Second, you should always interview your wedding photographer in person to see if your personalities “click”. Remember, a fun atmosphere is crucial to getting good photos! If you don’t like your photographer and aren’t having fun. . .then the iamges will not be as good as they can be.
Planning and Preparation. When you interview your potential photographer, make sure that you ask about the level of planning and preparation that will be involved, and what you’ll need to do to ensure great photographs. A good photographer will change the style, lighting, and posing around the physical features of the you and the people in your wedding party.
Test Shots. Make sure that your photographer will conduct test shots to determine the best angles and lighting styles so that you’re photographed at your very best. This will also save you a ton of time on your wedding day, because your photographer will know the best angles, lighting, and camera positions.
Schedule. Your wedding day will be chock full of activity: so getting a photography schedule in place well before your big day is crucial. Make sure you meet with your photographer to develop this personal schedule ahead of time.
