Choosing a Wedding Photographer

Selecting a wedding photographer to capture the moment of the most important day of your life can be a daunting task. Here are tips to ensure that you choose a photographer who will make your wedding day extra special.

Experience: An experienced photographer will have a substantial portfolio that you can review. When looking at his or her portfolio, check to make sure that all of the standard compositions (such as the bride prior to the wedding, ceremony photos, and those with family members) are there, as well as more creative interpretations of the couples’ special days. Look for unique lighting and settings, as well as pictures that seem to capture the brides’ and grooms’ personalities. After all, you don’t want a cookie cutter Winnipeg photographer – you want one who understands you and your needs.

Chemistry: You and your photographer should have a similar vision for your special day. You have enough on your plate, and shouldn’t have to spend time on your wedding day supervising your photographer. He or she should be open to the shots you have in mind, and you should be open to his or her interpretation of events as they unfold. Put simply, you have to trust your photographer. You can give him or her a list of photos you want taken; after all, the photographer doesn’t know that Aunt Betsy is one of the most important people in your life. However, you also need to be able to trust his or her artistic vision, and follow his or her suggestions.

Price: When it comes to hiring a wedding photographer – you need to stay within your budget but still feel confident that you will get treasured photos from your wedding day. A good wedding photographer will have a variety of packages and prices from which to choose. This way, you can book a talented photographer at a price you can afford.

Pictures: A good photographer becomes part of the infrastructure of your wedding day, and is an expert you can rely upon for advice. He or she can guide you through the maze of engagement photos, rehearsal dinner photos by offering advice on settings, hair and makeup, and even clothing that will help you to shine.
