"How to Choose the Right Wedding Photographer - A Bride's Guide"

Wedding photographers seemingly appear overnight, all vying for the honor of shooting your wedding. Having so many to choose from, how do you know which is a true professional and the right fit for you? Go beyond the usual tips of choosing a wedding photographer in this informative article.

Introduction

You're getting married! Few times in life produce such a combination of excitement, fear, happiness and overwhelming responsibility as tying the knot. Wedding planning can seem overwhelming--you've got to choose just the right venue, dress, flowers, cake, invitations, DJ, reception hall, bridesmaids and their dresses . . . the list is seemingly endless. Have you forgotten anything? What about photography? Don't discount hiring a professional wedding photographer right away, because most brides who forgo this important aspect of wedding planning usually end up regretting it later.

Why Invest in Wedding Photography?

Simply put, photography is the one lasting memento you have from your wedding day. Long after the flowers have faded, the cake eaten and the decorations discarded, your wedding day photos will be just as “fresh” as they were on the actual day itself. These moments captured in time spur memories and emotions that other souvenirs don't, and help you remember the joy, the excitement and the happiness your wedding day held.

All Wedding Photographers are NOT the Same

Wedding photography is a profession under invasion. Well-meaning or not, amateurs and photography enthusiasts with a camera and kit lens decide to “make a little extra money” by shooting weddings. By the same token, many brides “know someone” who likes to take pictures or owns a nice camera and ask them to shoot their wedding. Both of these types of “wedding photographers” should be avoided at all costs.

Why? Because your wedding day is a once-in-a-lifetime event. The images from this special day should not be trusted to someone doing it for “extra money” or as a favor to you. Choosing a wedding photographer should be just as researched and invested as finding your dress or reception hall. It should not be a side-thought or eeny-meeny-miny-moe choice. This is the person who is going to be capturing the magic and emotions of your wedding day, and is not something you can just pass off to just anyone.

The 3 Things to Look for When Choosing a Wedding Photographer

While there are many very good articles covering the basic aspects of choosing a wedding photographer, such as how to find one and what to ask, very few touch on more emotional and personal details that can be just as important in the selection process. These three things are:

Personality
Image Quality and Style
Price

Using these three factors, in this order, will help you narrow down your choices and allow you to find the perfect professional wedding photographer to capture your big day.
