3 Tips To Find The Perfect Wedding Photographer To Make Your Big Day Special

Your wedding photographer will have a huge part to play on your big day. They’re responsible for capturing all the intimate moments and giving you photos to look back on for decades. A bad photographer can cast a grey cloud on this day that doesn’t deserve to be there. The worst part is, you won’t see the photos until after the wedding – so you have no idea how they turned out. 

It can be pretty stressful, though you’ll make your life easier by choosing an excellent photographer who fills you with confidence. The three tips below will ensure you do precisely that! 

Check out their website

Your first call to action is to load up the wedding photographer’s website. Immediately, you can spot two red flags: 

  • If they don’t have a website
  • If their website looks poor

As a wedding photographer, you expect their site to look pretty and be a reflection of their quality services. Look at some classy wedding websites examples to know some of the things you’re looking for. The whole site and every page should be sleek and polished. This will fill you with confidence as it shows the photographer puts a lot of effort into things and wants to showcase their talents. 

Look at examples of their work

Never hire a wedding photographer unless you’ve seen examples of their work. Instagram is a great place to see photos, or you may find some on Pinterest and their website. Again, if you can’t find anything then there’s a massive red flag waving in your face. 

Wedding photographers literally make a living taking photos, so they should do their utmost to display their work for all to see. Otherwise, how are they going to get more jobs? Gather a few wedding photographers in your area and compare their shots. This is a wonderful way of singling out photographers who shoot in a style you enjoy. If you want your photos to look a certain way or be framed in a specific manner, finding examples of this from providers is a wonderful idea. 

Contact their previous clients

Most photographers will have reviews or testimonials on their website/Google. Already, these are quick and easy ways to see how popular the photographer is. You should go one step further and pay attention to their social media. Many photographers will tag or mention their clients when showing off their work – this is a prime opportunity to do some digging. 

You want the best wedding ever, so contact previous clients and ask them about the photographer. This gives you an honest view of whether they’re good at what they do and if they helped improve or worsen the wedding experience. When all the feedback indicates a positive experience, you know you can trust this photographer to take amazing pictures on your big day. 

Will you still be nervous when the photographs finally arrive in the mail after your wedding? Yes, but there’s no way to fully remove that. You’ll definitely be less nervous and feel confident that you’ll receive some beautiful snaps to commemorate such a special day.
