«Filtering» wedding photographers
First you need to define which style and asthetics is the one that you are looking for, which one suits you better and meets your expectations. The photographers website is the mirror of his style, his aesthetics, the general quality of his work, even his personality at some extend. It is not necessary that you have to find a photographer that is based at your city, not even at your country… «International» or «Destination» wedding photographers are willing to tundertake any wedding project everywhere in the world (you have to expect to cover all the travelling and acomodation expenses though).
The photographers work quality is very important but equaly important is his character and personality, after all during your wedding day you are going to spent more time together with your photgrapher than even with your friends or relatives. «Read» the signs…. is he formal at his/ her emails, sounds professional, honest, sense of humour?
In a few words…do you think you can relly on him/ her?
Your Wedding Photographer can make or break your day.
The photographer is going to be your colleague on that day not your employee.
Presentation, negotiations, questions and answers
Lets say, that you found the photographer/ s you would prefer to cover photographically your wedding.
It is time for negotiations, questions and answers…you need to clarify what you would like to get from the photographer. If you want and how many Photo Books, Albums, Slideshows, Prints, etc…
Of course, all the above has to do with presentation and therefore the most important is the quality of the images themselves!
As in almost everything in life, the rule «what you give is what you get» apllies to wedding photography as well.
