Experience is the most important thing to consider when choosing your wedding photographer. Look for a professional that has plenty of experience in shooting weddings, as they will have the technical ability and know-how to capture beautiful and timeless photos. Ask your potential photographers how many weddings they’ve shot, what gear they use, and what individual shots they have success with. This will help you determine if the photographer’s style will be a good fit for you.


The style is an important part of their artistic identity. You want to make sure the photographer you choose has a style that matches your vision and expectations. Look through their portfolio, blog posts, and Instagram feed to see examples of the types of shots they produce, lighting techniques used, how they compose frames and more. That way you know what kind of shots to expect once it’s time for them to snap away on your big day.


When it comes to wedding photography, reputation is everything. Take a look at their google profile and read their reviews. Talk to the venue or other wedding professionals who have seen their work in action. If appropriate, connect with the photographers directly to get more insight into their experience and passion for wedding photography. A good photographer should always be willing and excited to talk about what makes them unique, their experience, and how they plan on capturing your special day.
