What to Look for in a Wedding Photographer

Photographs are a major piece of your wedding that are going to last with you for a lifetime. The wedding cake, flowers and other décor might be as important for the day but it all ends as the day ends. Besides, the most important thing needed to capture it all is a top-caliber wedding photographer! But what a wedding photographer might reveal for your special day remains a mystery until after the fact. So, to help you out with choosing the right fit for capturing all of the memories that you are going to make, here are some helpful tips: 

Choose a Style

When it comes to photography, the camera can make a whole new world out of your real one. There are many styles of photography that you can choose from as a signature for your wedding.  If you want your day to be all about those spontaneous, candid pictures, choose a documentary style. If you prefer the old classic album like your parents’ or grandparents’ wedding album, go for portraiture. Fine art usually involves more photo-touching by the photographer. 

They can infuse their own artistic skills to a greater extent and make your wedding photographs look natural. It is reality based; the only difference is that the reality is shaped by your wedding photographer. Furthermore, edgy and bold is an offshoot of the last style, only it includes some out of the box thinking (such as unconventional bridal or bridesmaid poses) on part of the photographer. This style challenges old photographic traditions and infuses Dutch (tilted) angles and unconventional framing in your photos.

Read reviews and do your research

Recent newlyweds, especially in Dallas, often have great things to say about how they planned their entire wedding. They are enthusiastic in sharing it on Facebook, Instagram, and in person.

Hold interviews

Meeting your potential photographers in person by holding an interview is often more enlightening than any amount of review reading or album views alone. So, call them to see if they are even available on your wedding dates. This is very important. 

Make sure your personalities match

If the photographer does not show much interest in your idealized vision of a wedding, or does not vibe with you on a personal level. Your image on their camera is also going to be inhibited and perplexed. So make sure to do your due diligence. 

Compare packages

General wedding photographer packages range from $2,500 to $15,000 depending on where your photographer is based, the number of albums that you want, and how many edits that you need on your favorite photos. If you are willing to pay top dollar, make sure that you are paying for exactly what you want.
