The wedding industry as a whole is a busy and competitive market and with wedding photography it is no different. There is a huge choice of different styles, prices, and packages and also different people. Unlike other wedding vendors, you will be spending quite a bit of time with your wedding photographer so in addition to the budget and style, you also need to make sure you are happy with the person you have chosen to capture your special day. But how do you know you’ve found the right one?
Here are 4 indicators that you have found the right photographer for your wedding!
You feel at ease
An often overlooked part of hiring a wedding photographer is how you feel when you are around them. The last thing you want it to find that on your big day you are dreading spending any time with your photographer. You will ultimately end up with a collection of photos that you aren’t happy with. When meeting up and chatting with photographers you want to feel relaxed and at ease, just as if you were chatting to your best friend over coffee.
If, at the end of your meeting, you feel like you are saying goodbye to a friend, then that is a pretty good sign that they could be the one to capture your wedding day.
You trust them
Wedding photography can normally take up a large percentage of the wedding budget so you want to make sure that you trust your photographer to take beautiful photos that you will cherish forever. Your photographer should be able to answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease. Even better than that, they should have already managed to answer most questions you may have just through your general chatting. Having no unanswered questions at the end of your meeting is a great sign you’ve found a good photographer.
They share your vision/passion
You’ll spend a lot of time planning your wedding to include all of those personal details that you can’t wait to show off to your guests. The wedding industry is a creative one. If you can feel the same excitement and passion coming from your photographer about your wedding day as you are, and they are offering you additional ideas they think might suit your wedding, then this is a sure sign that that photographer is the one for your day.
You would recommend them
In some cases you will know you have found the right photographer if you feel like you would want to recommend them to your friends and family. If you want to tell everyone about them before they have even taken a single shot of your day (or engagement shoot), then it’s very likely you’ve found the right photographer.
