In the meantime, keep in mind these nine tips to know before you choose your wedding photographer.
What their previous work looks like.
This one is kind of obvious, but you can’t pick a wedding photographer without looking at previous photos they’ve taken at weddings. Did they capture the right moments? Do you like their style? Their past work will help you find answers to all these questions.
How many weddings they’ve worked before.
Are they new to the job? New doesn’t always mean worse – but it’s good to know whether or not you’re working with a wedding veteran or someone who might have some fresh ideas.
Whether or not they’re shy.
A shy photographer might not have the ability to get the best shots. You’re looking for someone with a balance – they need to be outgoing enough to talk to people and jump into activities and take photos, but also blend into the background and not take center stage at the wedding.
What kind of camera they have.
Different types of cameras have different photo capabilities. The type of camera they will use to shoot your wedding might make a difference if you have something very specific in mind for your photos.
In what type of weather they have experience shooting weddings.
This is especially important if you’re having a wedding outside. New Jersey (NJ) wedding photographers have to shoot weddings in all types of weather – from snow to sunshine to rain. Make sure you have a photographer who is prepared for both the worst and best case scenarios.
What you can and you can’t ask of them on your big day.
Your contract with your photographer will allow you to ask them to complete some tasks, but not others. Make sure responsibilities are clear before the big day comes.
How your wedding photographer plans on getting the good shots.
Talk to your potential wedding photographer about how he or she plans on getting the money shots. This way, you might be able to help set them up for some good photos on your wedding day.
What your print options are.
What types of photos will you be able to receive when the wedding is over? This might not matter for many couples, but if you’re looking for something very specific, you should let your photographer know before the wedding day.
How long development will take.
What is your photographer’s timeline for being able to see these photos? You might want to discuss the development timeline beforehand so you know exactly when you’ll be able to see the photos and videos after your wedding day.
