Finding the perfect wedding photographer for your own unique style isn't always easy. While you can find many professional and skilled photographers that could do a beautiful job, can you find one that really fits with your vision?
If you want a little bit of a different feel to your wedding photos, you may have to do a bit of searching to find someone who fits your unique style.
Here are some tips on how to find a wedding photographer that fits your unique style.
Decide On What Style Of Photographs You Want
You might not be that interested in taking traditional wedding photographs, or perhaps you want to put a bit of a different spin on traditional pictures. The first thing you need to do is check out what type of photos you want to have taken on your day. Once you have an idea of the style of pictures you want, have a look online at sites like Pinterest or Instagram to get a feel for different poses or unique places to have pictures taken.
Then take a look at wedding photographers in your area to see if some of their pictures don't inspire you.
Choose Photographers Who Have A Unique Flair
Once you have an idea of the style of photographs you want and have begun the process of looking at wedding photographers in your area, narrow your search to ones whose unique flair and ideas inspire you the most.
Look through their portfolios on their websites, and check their Instagram accounts and any other online presence they have. You can check their Facebook and Twitter feeds too. Sometimes their most creative images are their more informal ones.
Narrow this list down to several photographers in which you really enjoy their work. This should be your interview list.
Interview Each Photographer Carefully
When you interview each photographer, do so carefully and with your personality and desires for the type of photographs, you have in mind. Don't just look at how beautiful their pictures are, take into account their technical prowess. Most images will need to be edited and fixed up to get that professional and polished appearance.
You should look at how well they are able to turn your ideas into beautiful, finished photographs by taking a careful look at what they have already done. This means you should look at both unfinished and finished products if possible.
Take into account if your personalities match well too. Make sure they are listening to what your ideas are for the wedding photography and see if they make suggestions of their own. You will be working with them for an entire day and evening, so you need to know whether their vision works with yours as well as if your personalities will match.
