ATTENTION TO DETAIL
Being creative as well as the patient, a great photographer must have the ability and strong attention to capturing event the slightest of the details, from a little smile to the moment the couple getting engaged.
Such attention ensures capturing every precious moment to a memory, no matter how small.
Photographers who are experienced are strong communicators. They know how to communicate to their clients to provide with what the client desires.
Local photographers where the weddings take place are preferable and recommended as they have more knowledge about the place as well as good communication to help with the making of perfect pictures.
ExtraSnap help clients find photographers who communicate their idea for certain shots and are open to suggestions and also listen to your concerns.
Clients seeking a wedding photographer are recommended to understand the photography style of the photographer, such as naturalism, modern traditionalism, photojournalism etc. However, the words may seem complicated but do not forget to see the photographer’s portfolio and the types of photographs one clicked.
Weddings usually during daytime are the easiest to shoot under natural shade and light.
However, if you are getting married in the dark church or having an outdoor reception in the late evening, look specifically for the photographers who are skilled and presumably perfect at low-light photography.
If you notice that the photographs happen to be processed in black and white in the photographer’s portfolio, then he is not the right one for you, rather look for weddings shot in similar lighting environments as that of yours in your photographer’s portfolio and specifically ask them how they would handle your particular situation.
BASED ON REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDATIONS
Every photographer has their own strengths and weaknesses and it’s easy to get hold of them based on the photographer’s style and the photographs clicked in his portfolio. Bringing out weaknesses can be done by a robust conversation with the photographer, which a professional won’t hesitate to admit. But if a photographer says he does not have any(weaknesses), do not dare hire him.
Also, go through the previous works of the photographer and the reviews and ratings his previous clients have given or a recommendation from any of your friends who happen to hire the particular photographer.
Before you chose a photographer, make sure you include all specific requests and his professional attitude when it comes to dealing with the client. It is suggested to the clients that they do plenty of research and also interviews the photographers before making a choice.
