5 Important Points While Finding Your Wedding Photographer

You might have read all the wedding books and zines filled with unrealistic questions about the wedding cameraman. But the truth is, they are real things, you do need to care about these points while selecting the photographer.

1. Knowing the photography style you prefer

First of all, define your style. We are not talking about dressing habits but how you want yourself to be depicted in the photos. Should the photos complement your beauty at every critical moment? Or should the pictures focus on the happiness and joy around you? Do not define your style too fast, as there are many images on-site, you can have some idea first. Pinterest is an incredible source for getting inspiration, you can simply save images that impress you. Pile the pictures you have saved into a collection, that should guide you to the right photographer’s portfolio.

2. Meet and match with the photographer

The relationship with your photographer should be closer to a friend than just someone you paid for the service. Because this person will have to know you enough to understand what you treasure, which moment you would like to capture, and make your wedding memory lasting for a lifetime. First, you can stalk the photographer’s media such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or blogs. Choose one that you seem to have a friend feeling and crush on. Then, arrange a meeting in person, make the conversation open, and see if you both feel relaxed and comfortable. The first meet should not be all about wedding details, but getting to know each other a bit more.

3. Research the venue and its surroundings

After weeks of research, you finally registered a unique venue in Vietnam for your wedding day. Kindly remind that if you select somewhere unordinary, be cautious, and do research for the best angle of photography. Announcing and introducing your photographer to his working perimeters in advance so that he can prepare appropriate gear. For example, having drone shots might be very nice for a wedding in Bai Tho Mountain.

4. Prepare the right questions while meet up the photographer


Q1) Are you used to take wedding photographs?

There are all kinds of photographers on the market but wedding cameramen have their particular practice. The wedding day is once in a lifetime, you will definitely want to make sure that this person has a passion and experiences for making an excellent photo album for the newlyweds.


Q2) How would you…..?

Query the photographer how he would handle certain situations. For example, how would you deal with a camera-shy person? Are you able to frame pets on the wedding? Or how do you help orchestrate the flow of the wedding day?


Q3) What is your fee structure?

Make honesty your policy. As a professional photographer could be quite pricey, you can be frank about your budget for wedding photography and pick the best range you can afford.

Being sure of the wedding budget is very important, learn how to discuss with your partner how to split the costs before proceeding preparation.

5. Sign a contract

Signing a contract helps to clear up the service term. Most of the professional photography studios sign contracts with clients. The contracts list down the agreed service packages, the rate, the format of pictures, and the result delivery time. However, if the photographer does not provide a contract, there are many contract templates online for your reference.
