Let's Talk Weddings:
How do you find/hire a wedding photographer? 1. Ask your venue who they trust. Make sure that list is not a paid list but earned through years of trust. 2. Ask your friends. Keep in mind, however, that everyone's "Guy" is "The Best" and comes "Highly Recommended" so be sure to ask tough questions and actually look at the work presented (such as galleries). 3. Cross-reference for reviews on WeddingWire or The Knot. True reviews from true clients over a long period of time speaks volumes. 4. Look at the actual pictures that are presented as samples. Do you have access to full galleries or is just select few on a website. Are they all outdoor on a cloudy day? Any tough lighting conditions that look amazing? 5. What will the quality of the product be? Will it be a hand-crafted album custom made in Venice Italy or do they stamp out the same leather-bound album from some site online? 6. Ask why the price is what it is. If you find someone offering photo and video for $2000 and someone else offering just photo for $5000 there's got to be a reason. This industry is very much a "You get what you pay for" industry, but some over-charge and way too many are not good and know it, so try to undercut. 7. Consider the over-all experience from start to finish. Do they offer to come to you for the initial meeting or make you drive an hour to them? Are they willing to work with you to create a custom experience or do you need to fit their mold? 8. Unlike any other vendor, your photographer will be with you from start to finish. You need to trust they will be a good fit for you. You need to feel comfortable.
