Every couple we speak to in relation to wedding photo and cinema tell us; ” It’s so confusing, there are so many photographers online offering different levels of service and inclusions”. Can you relate to this? The biggest problem for couples today is that due to camera technology advancements, it’s now far easier to take photos than ever before. As a result, there are now tens of thousands of “would be” photographers all trying to earn your business as a wedding photographer.
Most couples make the mistake of going for the cheapest or the one who offers the most, but neither means you will receive quality images. Some make an even bigger mistake of choosing friends of family to shoot their wedding. The smartest way to find a true connection with the right photographer is through their work. If you feel a deep and strong connection to their work and this is your first priority, you’re on your way to making the right decision. And when we say connection to their work, we don’t just mean 20 photos on their website. In fact, a small selection of individually chosen images advertised on a photographers website is a warning sign to all couples. Don’t be fooled by a handful of carefully selected, highly photoshopped “best of the best” images. You need to see large bodies of work over a long period of time. Posture, lighting, facial expressions and natural interaction are all part of what a talented professional wedding photographer does. To find the right connection you need to see full weddings displayed in an album format to gauge consistency, storytelling ability, and technical depth of knowledge. It’s also wise to ensure your photographer has a strong social media following, as today social media plays a huge role in protecting consumers dodgy business practices.
