When you are planning a wedding, you might be overwhelmed with everything you are doing before the wedding actually takes place. Getting a good photographer only takes a couple of steps to show what you need. Here you have our bi-weekly wedding checklist.
1. Previous Work
The biggest thing you should make sure you see are previous samples of work. This is the only way you will be able to see if they are going to work with your wedding ideas. They might have something that is themed closer to what you want with your wedding. They also might be able to show you options you can order with your traditional photos for your wedding. They may have products like canvas prints or an album you can use and purchase with your package. You will probably choose a package when you book the photographer. So it’s nice to see what they may look like in the end.
Photographers have to have some amount of professionalism when taking your photos. You should see how they are dressed and if they care about how they look when you meet. If they don’t then they probably aren’t going to dress like a professional at your wedding. This is one of the most important parts of your wedding checklist because it will effect more than just one part of your wedding ideas and appearance.
When you book the photographer, you will want to make sure you know when they are going to be there to take the posed photographs. If you choose to do it before the wedding, you need to make sure the area you are taking the photos in is going to be clear so you don’t have to worry about others taking photos and putting the flash in the professional shots. Let your guests know this time will be for the photographer and they will need to be in a different area so they aren’t wondering into your shots and causing issues.
There are a lot of things to think about when you are looking at your wedding checklist and the photographer is something very important to have on it. The photos are going to be how you remember this special day so they need to be the best they can be. You should research the photographers you are planning on looking into so you know what have to choose from. You don’t want to have something that is going to leave a bad memory for your special day. Take your time even when you are so busy.
