When you’re planning a wedding, it’s important to take time and care in selecting the right vendors. Selecting the perfect Pittsburgh wedding photographer might seem a little more daunting than other wedding vendors – after all, you can easily do cake tastings, check out bridal bouquet samples and even try on a wedding gown multiple times before the big day!
For that reason, choosing a wedding photographer should be done with some research. What kind of photography do you want for your big day? Are you looking for a certain personality style to mesh with yours so that you have a connection from the start? These are just some of the questions you’ll want to think about as you start looking through the possible options of Pittsburgh wedding photographers. Need some more suggestions? Here are three tips for choosing a wedding photographer that will make the entire process a little less daunting:
Consider the Style
There are various styles of wedding photography – do you have a preference? Depending on whether or not you want fine art, documentary or classic portraits (or any other photographic styles), you’ll want to choose a Pittsburgh wedding photographer who specializes or has experience in the style you want! Many wedding photographers can do more than one style, so be sure to make your preferences known during the consultation so your vendors can ensure you get exactly what you want on your wedding day.
Get to Know Your Photographer
There’s a huge difference between shooting a wedding with someone who’s strictly business and one who is really invested in making sure that not only do the pictures turn out flawless, but that you are totally comfortable and having a great time during your photo shoots. When you’re at ease with your wedding photographer and trust their vision, your photos come out beautifully and last a lifetime. Another thing to consider – your wedding photographer will be around you most of the day on one of the biggest events of your life! You’ll definitely want to have a good relationship so that you’re calm and relaxed.
Understand Package Options
Make sure you communicate fully about what you want from your wedding photographer! Whether you want them to capture certain moments, such as a first look, or you want them to be there for a specific number of hours, be sure to let them know! This helps you prepare an accurate budget and understand what you’re getting when you place your package orders.
