The Right Wedding Photography

Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and that makes the wedding photography just as important. Your pictures are one of the ways you will remember your special day. Picking out the right photographer can be a little tricky and nerve-wracking. What should you be looking for?


Of course you are going to want wedding photography to fit into your budget. Some prices can be just outrageous. Make sure you look around and see what you are getting for your money. You might have to pay a little more, but are getting a better deal in pictures in some places. Some photographers will also allow you pay a little bit at a time until the wedding so it’s not such a huge lump sum. Also see if they are charging by the hour or for the day. Will they charge extra for a different setting (taking bridal pictures by the lake after the wedding ceremony)? Is there additional prices for a certain number of pictures? Do they charge extra for giving you the negatives or a disk of all the pictures taken? How many pictures are they printing out for you for which price? Do they charge you for the number of poses you want or they number of group pictures you might need to have taken. Make sure you look at all the packages in wedding photography and are getting what you want for the price they are asking. If they don’t have something listed in their packages; take the time to ask them about doing it and what the charge would be for it.


You are going to want to see samples of the work they have already done for other weddings. This will give you an idea as to the style of their work and how flexible they are with it. If you are planning a contemporary wedding you are going to want someone that can think outside the traditional wedding poses and have fun add in some other pictures as well. The same is true in reverse, but the post important is the quality of the pictures. Are they clear and sharp? Are they printed on good quality paper? Does it look like they took the time to get the shot or just clicked off a bunch of pictures? Sometimes in wedding photography they will charge you additional for a certain number of pictures.

Are they printing out the pictures that you want and allowing you to pick them out beforehand? What are they saving the pictures on? Are you getting high resolution pictures on a disk that you can possibly make additional copies of? Is the camera setting off and many of the pictures you wanted turned out dark?


When considering wedding photography you should take into consideration of the photographer. The do not have to be the nicest person, but you should be able to converse with them without causing issues. There is nothing worse than a grumpy photographer bemoaning every picture they have to take at your wedding. It’s enough to make any bride or groom mad just dealing with them.
