Choosing a wedding photographer

It’s understandable why couples take their wedding photography seriously. Wedding photographs are a valuable keepsake, a family heirloom passed down through generations – photographs of one of the most important days of your life.

It’s important to know what style of wedding photography you prefer. For example are you looking for a traditional formal approach with posed images? Or do you prefer lots of candid shots in which the subject might not know whether he or she is being photographed? Candid shot generally produce a more natural feel. Most couples prefer candid shots while also covering the traditional formal wedding photographs. I think the best results are produced by combining these styles as you will receive a majority of natural images as well as the more standard, formal couple and family photographs.

It’s important to think about how much coverage you would like. For instance you might only want photographs of your ceremony so having 2-3 hours of coverage might be enough for you. However I find that almost all couples prefer a complete package that includes full coverage of their entire day. This way it is easy to look back on the story of the day and each image will bring each moment back to life just as you remember them. Generally 400-600 images are sufficient to tell the story of a whole wedding day.

Wedding photographs look their best when properly displayed in frames or on other print media such as canvasses or acrylic mount. As the days of sharing wedding photographs used to be limited to visiting for tea and looking over a hard bound wedding album, today’s digital capabilities of sharing photographs are limitless. While you may want your wedding photographs delivered in print resolution, you will likely also want them in a web friendly format so you can upload your favorite photos to social media to share with friends and family. Hard copy albums become quite expensive as you generally get what you pay for. Most high quality albums factor in around $700-$1000 to the price of a wedding photography package. I find most couples these days to prefer to forego albums and to keep things digital, for ease of sharing, and to print only their favorite images.

Determining your budget. While weddings can often be costly, it is important to remember how much effort has gone into the styling and beautification of the day, essentially the effort to create the set. As such, it is important that your wedding photographs accurately keep the beauty of the day alive and preserved. While Uncle Jack may be handy with the camera, he might not appreciate all the subtleties and details that much time and effort went into creating. It is important that your wedding photographer knows of your details and has the eye for them, so that these details may be included and featured in your wedding photographs. Couples who choose to book a low-cost, under-experienced photographer often end up with substandard images. Often these low cost services are ‘shoot and burn’ and do not include editing. While these services can be cheap, you can’t afford to be disappointed. When it comes to budgeting, ask yourself an important question: After the wedding is over, what am I going to have left? Your spouse, your pictures and your memories. Most of your wedding day will be forgotten eventually, memories jogged only by your photographs. According to a survey run buy the largest online wedding website, the number one regret couples had is that they wished they would have invested more in their wedding photography. Shopping for a wedding photographer is somewhat like buying a house, you get what you pay for.

So how come wedding photography appears to be generally expensive? This is because professional wedding photographers use expensive equipment and often work 60+ hour weeks – remember that there is a lot more time involved than simply shooting the photographs on your day, it takes several full days just to edit your images. Add insurance, computers, software, taxes, advertising, equipment maintenance, shipping, studio expenses and you will see it’s not just a person with a camera for a few hours on your wedding day.

Also, it is nice to meet with your wedding photographer for an informal chat well before your wedding day. This creates an opportunity to discuss any details but more so to get to know each other a little better so you and your spouse feel comfortable with your photographer. Not only should you like your wedding photographer’s images, you should like them too – you’ll be spending many hours with them during your wedding day. Last but not least, be confident and be yourself, relax and trust your wedding photographer, and remember that it’s your day that you are celebrating!

To summarise, when looking for a wedding photographer, it is important to determine:

  • The style of images you like.
  • The amount of coverage/services you require.
  • Your budget.

Hopefully this clears up some of the mystery in choosing a wedding photographer and makes it a little bit more straightforward in finding a perfect photographer for your wedding day.
