Here are three ways to have fool-proof confidence when picking your wedding photographer…
Wedding Photography is a HUGE investment. Some people say it’s one of the most important vendors. But it’s scary, it’s daunting, it’s straight up a lot of money.
So, you should be 100% confident in who you choose to capture one of the most special days in your life, right?
Here’s how you can do that…
Stalk ’em on the ‘gram
You heard me (figuratively ya know…we’re on a blog not a podcast). Follow and stalk them…like yesterday. Find photographers whose style you love, and seriously…stalk the ever loving shit out of them.
Get to know who they are, why they love wedding photography, and find out what they do that make you feel confident in them.
(FYI photographers, this is why it’s CRUCIAL for you to show up online and interact with your IG ppl)
You can do this even if you’re not engaged yet too. The longer you have to get to know your photographer, the better your connection will be and the confidence and trust you have in them will grow.
Talk Over the Phone or Video Call
Once you’ve found a photographer you love, schedule a call with them after you inquire! This real-time interaction can be a huge game-changer during the inquiry process.
Video calls are ideal because let’s be real: face-to-face communication is invaluable, but a phone call can get the job done too.
This call can be great to help you get to know each other, talk out any questions you have, and find out if you are a good fit for one another!
Identify Key Qualities and Traits
Figure out what qualities and traits matter the most to you in your wedding photographer. Is it their editing style? Is it posing? Common interests? Price?
Find out what you cannot live without or what you’d be heartbroken over if you didn’t have, and match that up with your vendors.
Here are some things that some clients prioritize:
- Editing Style
- Posing Style (candid, natural, editorial, etc.)
- Gallery Turnaround Time
- Planning skills
- Package Components (what their services include)
All of these things will help you feel confident when picking your wedding photographer, and will allow you to put full trust in them. Any good photographer will ultimately want to prioritize you as a client and make sure that you’re getting a good experience. But the right photographer will make sure you’re getting a great experience!
