What are the Qualities of a Good Wedding Photographer?

by Dave Z on Sep 8, 2010

The wedding day is one of the special days of your lives. It is on this day that two people who are in love with each other are sworn to loyalty before God. This grand event is captured through the lens of a camera so that it can be recalled and cherished time and again. As result you require a professional expertise of a wedding photographer to capture these wonderful moments and make them permanent. You will have to select one after comparing the rates, experience and expertise of a couple of them. Once you get started looking, you’ll find there are many wedding photographers of varied experience, styles, and price ranges. So how do you go about selecting a wedding photographer that is right for you? There’s a lot on the line—your memories of one of the most significant days of your life. Here are some ideas on how to get started selecting a wedding photographer. First, decide on your professional wedding photography budget. When determining your wedding photography budget, keep in mind that you get what you pay for. As a general rule of thumb, you should expect to invest about 10% of your total wedding budget toward a wedding photographer (this does not include a high-end wedding album or special custom prints). This might seem like a lot, but when you consider that, besides the dress, the only thing you can take away from your wedding day are the photos, it is a reasonable investment to make. No matter what options you choose as a baseline, your wedding photographer should provide you with edited images that are properly exposed and color corrected, while providing an after-effects menu of services for custom cropping, image retouching, or special effects. Also, you should be given the ability to view your wedding pictures online. Higher-end wedding photographers often host a private viewing session in their studios first for you, your family, and a select group of friends before your photos are released online. This can be a very nice touch and an excellent way, post-honeymoon, to gather your close friends, catch up, and revisit your special day Finally, a CD of all your digital wedding images at a 4” x 6” print resolution level should be included or provided for purchase along with custom enlargements and albums. But all this varies from wedding photographer to wedding photographer, so check around. And like most other things, you get what you pay for, so be skeptical of packages that seem too good to be true. Second, build a list of wedding photographers whose style you like and whose price ranges fit within your budget. Next, visit the wedding photographers websites, and spend some time carefully reviewing their wedding photos and wedding photography packages. Look to see if the wedding photographer takes the kinds of images you like, incorporating a good mix of indoor, outdoor, candid, portrait, fine art, and detail photography. A good wedding photographer needs to be capable of executing a number of photographic styles and approaches in various conditions in order to capture your day well. This should be reflected in the sample photos you view online. Reasonable wedding photographers list their wedding photography packages and prices online so you can get a general idea of their cost structure. This saves time for you both.
