Five Tips for Choosing the Perfect Wedding Photographer
Updated: Aug 24, 2018
Are you aware that not all photographers can shoot in low light settings?
1. LIGHTING SITUATION FOR YOUR WEDDING:
The easiest wedding to shoot is a daytime wedding, with a ceremony under shade and great natural light. However this is not always the the type of situation that will occur. In fact, 70% of the time, a photography shoot will come in different levels of lighting and some will be very difficult unless you hire the right experienced crew. If, however, you’re getting married in a dark church or you’re having an outdoor evening wedding reception, it’s really important that you specifically look for a photographer that’s skilled with those lighting environments.
2. ALWAYS GET REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS:
Ask to chat with a past client for references and recommendations of previous work. Here are a variety of weaknesses I’ve observed in various photographers: not super good time managers on the wedding day, slightly socially awkward, slow delivery of photos, slow or poor client communication, not cheerful and outgoing with the couple, don’t take direction well. These are just a few issues. In order to have a carefree wedding, make sure your Wedding Photographer has great recommendations.
3. PRICE AND VALUE:
When looking at someone’s pricing, be careful to see what’s included in the package you’re looking at. The Cheapest Price Wedding Photographers is not always the BEST WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS. Keep that in mind while you are interviewing and checking the past work and references
4. PHOTOGRAPHER’S STYLE:
There are many types of photographers in the Philippines and many are vary good. You have some specialists such as those that specialize in Wedding Photography, Birthday Photography, Event Photography or some other common types. Find a Photographer that fits your style and your needs. Check their work from their website or blog and see what they have done in the past. How reputable are they and how skilled at your type of needed photo shoot.
5. PHOTOGRAPHY POST-PROCESSING:
A lot of the work in modern photography is done in post-processing stage and this becomes today one of the critical photography essentials. When you’re looking at a photographer’s portfolio, it’s helpful to know that images that do not show properly or have good resolute value to the composition.
We hope this information can be used to help you choose the best photographer for your wedding, birthday or special occasion. It is so important to choose the right photographer because our special moments are important to rememeber and Video’s and Pictures can last a lifetime and give us so much joy and pleasure when we look back.
