These two are getting married tomorrow and I couldn’t be happier for them, it has been an amazing year and a half getting to know them both throughout the planning process and photographing their engagement portraits!
When you are searching through the thousands of photographers we have in Portland, It can be very overwhelming Im sure, and sometimes you would just rather choose the out of the first few on google you come across, am I right? Choosing a photographer for your wedding is SUCH an important task in the wedding planning process and sometimes couples make the mistake of just “picking” someone because they came up first in a search. Take your time, choose a wedding photographer that fits not only the style you love but meshing perfectly with you and your wedding as well. You are working with this photographer throughout a very personal and important day, finding that photographer that “completes” you(HA!) is just as important as finding the venue you hand picked because you LOVE it.
Here are a few things to look for when choosing photographers you may want to move forward with for your wedding:
-Referrals! Ask your friends who just got married who loved their wedding photographer, what better way then knowing someone that has worked with someone already that they love.
-Style! Look through their website, ask for samples of an entire wedding, look at their bio or about us page. Would you like to work with someone who loves to travel like you do or is crazy in love with their spouse as well?!
-Set up a consult! Talking to someone in person whether that be Skype or meeting for a drink, can really give you an even better sense if you all would mesh well together. Bring a list of questions you may have about the process or the wedding photographer themselves.
After these 3 things, this should help get you on the right path to finding your wedding photographer. Wishing you the best in your wedding planning!
