Choosing the right wedding photographer for your big day is more challenging than it sounds. Check out some of the best tips we’ve collected from our experience in the wedding industry on how to hire a wedding photographer:
Busy isn’t better
Just because a photographer has done a lot of weddings, doesn’t mean that they are the best. In fact, this may mean that they are overbooked or are outsourcing their gigs to other photographers. While experience is important, it’s also important to work with someone who has the time and resources to devote to your big day.
Make sure the price is right
Price doesn’t always equate to value. While you don’t want to go with the cheapest option, you may not want to go for the highest price either. Compare the price of your wedding photographer to the value of their services. If you go with the cheaper option, your photos may not be exactly what you are looking for.
Don’t play favorites
We all know a wedding photographer. If you don’t, you have a friend of a friend who does wedding photography on the side. While they may offer you a good deal, you may find yourself in a complicated relationship. It’s always better to hire someone straight out, than work with family and friends who are much better off enjoying your big day as a guest.
