What to Look for in a Wedding Photographer

Style: The photographer’s style of photography is very important as it should match up with what you like yourself. If a photographer is “light and airy” and you like dramatic images, it would not be a good fit. Think of what your vibe is and look at the photographer’s portfolio on their website or social media to get an idea of what their style is. At Chad & Megan Photography, we want to create Dramatic and Cinematic images for our clients to enjoy for the rest of their lives.

What do they offer: It is very important to find out up front what the photographer offers. Your wedding day is the most important day of your lives and you want to make sure that you will have those memories for your life and beyond. Do they offer products that are heirloom quality and will stand the test of time? Take the time to touch and feel the products. Beyond products, do they offer two photographers? This is so important as it is impossible to capture both the bride and groom’s special moments at the same time with only one photographer.

Personality: When you meet the photographer at a wedding show or while talking with them at your consultation, it is important to vibe with them. The photographer is the one vendor that you will be with for almost your full wedding day. Do they make you feel relaxed? Do you feel as if you would have a good time with them? It’s your wedding day, you want to make sure that the photographer you are spending the majority of your day with is someone that you click with. This will help keep the day moving along and keep you relaxed and smiling throughout.

They are there for you: It would be horrible to be stuck with a photographer that is just there to shoot the wedding and nothing more. You want a photographer that is there for you and wants to make sure that your day is everything that you wanted it to be. We love to make our couple happy and keep them laughing throughout the day. We work hard to actually get to know you as a couple so that we know what makes you relax, what will give us the reaction that we are looking for in the photograph and what you are looking for in your images.
