How to Select Wedding Photographers

Wedding Photographers

There are many wedding photographers that are eager to capture the memories of your special day for you. Selecting the right photographer for your wedding is really important. The pictures he or she takes will be treasured for years and even generations to come.

As a recent bride, I hope these wedding tips help with your own wedding.

Interview at least three photographers. Before you schedule each interview, make sure that each photographer is available on your wedding date.

If you have examples of wedding photos that you like, bring them to the interview. In order to obtain a price quote you should be ready to supply the date, time, length of the wedding/reception, and size of the wedding party.

Choose a photographer that you feel comfortable with. The best photographers will get booked early. Make your selection one year in advance to get the wedding photographer you want. Be ready to make a deposit to reserve your wedding date. Get everything you agree on in writing.
