Searching for that perfect photographer?

Regardless of whether you’re looking for a family or wedding photographer, there’s a lot to know about how to choose a photographer that is right for you. Your photos will last a lifetime, be passed on to family, hung in homes, sit on your mantelpiece or viewed in luxury albums. We understand that choosing the right photographer to capture your wedding or family portraits is important and comes with a price. With so many photographers out there now, the decision can be difficult, especially if you don’t know where to start. Therefore, to make it easier, we’ve put together a list of some of our top tips below.

Their Style

When it comes to choosing your photographer, be sure to check out their website and/or social media pages to ensure that you love their style. No two photographers are ever the same. Even as a husband and wife team, we find that our editing styles are different. Ask yourself, what it is you want in terms of photography and what look you prefer.

Get Along & Trust

Liking and getting along with your photographer, especially a wedding photographer is significant. Unlike booking a family photographer, we recommend you always meet your potential wedding photographers. The best wedding photographer, will always be someone you feel comfortable with and can click with straight away. Meeting a wedding photographer is usual practice before you decide to short list them or lock them in.

Ask Questions

Before you decide to short list a photographer, bring up any questions you may have. This could range from anything about how long the coverage is, in relation to the price and/or what is included with the price. You can also ask what additional services or products they offer, as well as how they will handle unforeseen changes to the weather and what back up equipment they have, should the need arise.

See Their Work in Print

While it can be impressive to see a photographer’s work displayed on their website, ask to see some of their work in print. This is so you can ensure that what you see on screen is the same when being printed. In addition, this is also a great way to view any products they offer, such as an album.

Check Their Reviews

Deciding on a photographer is by no means an easy task. Therefore, ensure you do your research and check to see if they have any trusted reviews. A good place to start is on google or on their facebook page. Furthermore, if you know anyone who has used their services, this is a good way to get further clarification. Some photographers also have reviews highlighted on their instagram stories, which can also be viewed.

Discuss Your Plans

When you meet or talk to a photographer, have a chat about your plans and what you are hoping to meet. Whether this be for a wedding, family photography or special event. This ensures that all expectations are met by both parties and that nothing is left out.

Be 100% Happy

Last and foremost, before locking in that perfect photographer and signing on the dotted line, ensure that you are 100% happy. It is imperative that you have absolutely no reservations holding you back.
