Things to Consider when Choosing Wedding Photographers for your Wedding

Posted in Events

Cake, check. Flowers check. Dream gown, check. The perfect man, check. Everything is perfect and you are good to go. Your big day is so close you can hear your partner saying ‘I do’.  One thing people do not pay attention to when they are planning their wedding is who their wedding photographers are going to be. People think ‘oh well, my iPhone 6 has such a good camera my fiver year old nephew could take pictures.’ However, this could not be further from the truth you need to hire wedding photographers for this day. There are several things you need to consider when you are hiring photographers to ensure that you are getting the right person.

  • Experience

Experience is the best teacher. While your nephew can click and click away at the camera, they may not know the perfect angle, the perfect spot or tell you how to pose. The last thing you want is to stand next to your spouse awkwardly as if you are auditioning to join the army. You need wedding photographers who have done this before and are willing to tell you how to stand, where to place your hands, which are the perfect spots. Experience allows a photographer to know which mistakes not to make. These pictures are going to preserve the biggest memory of your life and so they need to be perfect.

  • The camera they use

You don’t want a photographer who uses a camera that will shock people when the pictures are taken so everyone looks surprised in all the pictures take. You also don’t want a photographer who has a slow camera that takes just one picture every two minutes. They need to take several pictures to capture the perfect angle, the perfect smile and the perfect everything. Their camera also needs to have a great lens that will take the clearest images. These are to last a lifetime. They need not be anything short of perfect!

  • Professional

At the wedding, your photographer will be meeting all sorts of people. There will be those who will want to dominate the photo session and there will be those who will be angry each time their photo is taken. Your wedding photographer should know how to handle every personality and with at most professionalism. The last thing you want is to have cops at your wedding because your photographer decided to hit one of your guests. You also don’t want an important guest leaving because they felt ignored or disrespected.
