Wedding photography tips for professional wedding photographer

Today I went to interview a professional wedding photographer for my wedding next year, and it sparked an idea to share my experience with my readers. As a wedding event planner, why not provide some wedding photography tips and a wedding photography checklist to help another couple with their wedding?

I think it’s important to let your groom in on the experience when you’re researching a professional wedding photographer. (Based on the fact that he’s interested!) My fiance is a professional photographer so he has a vested interest in this part of the wedding.

Therefore, look at the portfolios of different photographers, ask your friends, relatives, and your wedding event planner for references as well as research online on various wedding sites that offer advice and wedding photography tips when you are first selecting your photographer.

Next, go and interview your potential photographer like I did today (well, I didn’t actually interview Michael since I’ve worked with him as other wedding event planners)! It’s important that you and your fiancĂ© feel comfortable with your photographer so that no matter what happens at the party, you’ll look relaxed and happy in your pictures.

Discuss with your professional wedding photographer what kind of photos you are looking for.

  • Do you want wedding portraits or journalistic-styled photos?
  • Do you want black and white and color shots?
  • What kind of wedding photography packages do they offer?

Before the meeting, you should create a wedding photography checklist to help you focus on hiring the right type of photographer for you and your fiancé.

Other wedding photography tips to think about include providing the photographer with the names of your other vendors, such as DJs, wedding event planners, and florists since many times they work together on other weddings and talk among themselves about the key shots should be. Prisoner that day.

Also, very important, that before your wedding, create a wedding photography checklist for your wedding day. Be sure to include and write what type of family shots you want and who you want in them, ceremony shots, bridal room shots, candid photos during cocktails and reception, and party shots to name a few.

Keep in mind where you’re getting married (indoors or outdoors) as well as the time of day. You want to make sure your photographer knows the people you want to photograph by face and/or name so you might consider creating a Facebook for your photographer. All of these items are just the tip of the iceberg when you start creating your checklist, and that’s why you want to start with your list early and then add to it all the way up to your wedding day.

I hope you find these wedding photography tips helpful as you begin selecting a professional wedding photographer. During the selection process, it is important not only to create a wedding photography checklist but also one for the wedding itself. Until next time, remember the budget bash mantra: make it easy, delicious, stylish, fun, and profitable!
