When it comes to choosing a wedding photographer, you want to make sure you like them as a person and that your personalities are a good fit since they will be spending the whole day with you! Also, it’s important to do your research and evaluate their portfolio to make sure they are the right fit for you in their photography style. While many photographers have stunning portfolios on their websites or social media accounts, it’s essential to request to view full galleries before booking them for your wedding day.
- Get a sense of their style: A photographer’s portfolio may showcase their best work, but it doesn’t necessarily represent their typical style or the quality of their overall work. By reviewing full galleries, you can get a better sense of their style, consistency, and attention to detail throughout an entire wedding day. Do they capture the moments that you are dreaming about for your wedding day?
- Ensure they have experience: Reviewing a full wedding gallery can also help you assess whether the photographer has experience in capturing all aspects of a wedding day. From getting ready shots and formal portraits, to candid moments and the reception – you want to ensure your photographer has the skills and experience to capture all the important moments of your special day.
- Know what to expect: Reviewing a full gallery can also give you a better idea of what to expect from your wedding day photos. You can see how the photographer captures different lighting situations, how they work with the wedding party and guests, and whether they are able to capture the emotions and special moments that make your day unique.
- Make an informed decision: Finally, reviewing full galleries can help you make an informed decision when selecting a photographer for your wedding day. By seeing the full range of their work, you can be confident in your decision and feel assured that you are choosing a photographer who can capture the memories of your special day in a way that aligns with your vision. The wedding day is a big investment and trusting that the photographer will capture it all in a way you love will make for a stress free wedding day!
You want to love all parts of your wedding photography experience – from working with them to plan out your timeline, to engagement photos, to getting ready, to capturing the intimate moments with your spouse, and the fun you have in celebration with family and friends! By asking to view full galleries before booking your wedding photographer is a great step toward choosing the right photographer for your special day.
