The wedding day has been dubbed by many as the most important day in the life of a person. If you are doing a wedding, then you probably agree with this characterization. The day is full of hope and deep emotion and serious commitments. The fun in the day also needs to be documented for posterity as should the traditional milestones in the wedding. Instances like the couple’s time alone in the barn or their first dance as well as bridesmaids reveal need to be captured in the most romanticized forms possible.

Find a Personable Photographer

Having the skills as a photographer is only a small percentage of what a wedding photographer needs to excel. Because weddings do not happen in studios, wedding photographers need to be able to build rapport with strangers quickly in an uncontrolled environment. A good photographer should also have the ability to make decisions and influence people to follow them.
Owing to the possibility of things going wrong in weddings, the photographer should have the capacity to think quickly and solve the problem at hand. Having the capacity to join the fun and even create it is also a good attribute in a wedding photographer. This way the photographer you choose would increase the fun for everyone in the wedding. You can always tell whether the photographer is good depending on the referrals you get.

Photographer Criteria

To see whether the photographer is as good as they claim to be, look if they captured details during the bride and the groom’s preparation. Details such the groom’s tie should be captured, cuff links, lapel pins and so on. A picture of the page boys helping the groom with his cuff links and watch would show you that the photographer cares about the details. Pictures catching the brides looking down at a flower garden or her bouquet, a shot of the back of the dress or of the bride looking away at a distance should also communicate something on the photographer’s attention to detail.

You can tell whether the photographer is a good one depending on how well they know their gear. It is not necessary for you to be an expert to tell whether the prospective hire is familiar with their gear. If you see them fumbling with the camera when trying to change settings, don’t hire them. It is also important to check to see whether the equipment they need to do a good job. You should invite your wedding photographer to the site beforehand. This helps them plan on where and at which angles to take which photos. This will lead to high quality pictures which will also be taken in good time.
