If you have chosen a region to get married in, this is a good start to narrowing down your selection a little. Today we are talking about choosing a wedding photographer in the Southern Highlands of NSW, so if you are from another part of Australia, click here to find your photographer. But if you live or are planning a destination wedding in the gorgeous southern highlands, then definitely keep reading. There is just so much choice out there, which can be a great thing, but how do you know if you’ve found the one? (And I don’t mean your partner – finding them was the easy part!).
Unless you are a wedding planner for a living, when you are choosing a wedding photographer for your big day, it’s probably the first time you’ve done this. It would be only natural to not really have much idea what you’re looking for.
Some great hints for narrowing down your choices of wedding photographer include:
- Talk to friends, family and work colleagues. The good thing about being of marrying age is that a lot of peers are going through the same process too; and just maybe they can make the mistakes for you! If they find a really good supplier who did an awesome job on their day, this could be a great recommendation for you.
- Think about the type of pictures you want, as well as the vibe of the day you are trying to create. Some photographer’s folios may look like stunning magazine spreads, but if your ambiance is more low-key or rustic, this may not be the right photographer for you. If you prefer natural and candid, look for someone who matches this. If you want a true romantic narrative presented on the pages of your album, look for someone who specialises in this.
- Look for people who are professional, organised and have attention to detail. Look for people who have a detailed contract of service, so you are covered in the unlikely event of anything unfortunate happening. Make sure they are experienced enough for your needs, they ask you the right questions to give you a good peace of mind feeling, and make sure they are insured.
This is just a good start to help you get your mind around who might be good for you. A spellbinding portfolio is important. Ask yourself what you want to take away from your special day?
