The No Stress System To Choosing Wedding Photographers Boston Ma

By Ruth Kennedy

Everyone wants to have amazing wedding photos to look back on and remind them and their family of their happy day. Choosing the right wedding photographer is a very important decision in your wedding planning. In order to get the pictures of your dreams you need to be sure that you find the right wedding photographer. This may take some trial and error, but it is worth spending some time to be certain that you find a person who fits with your needs and your personality. Here are a few tips on how to choose a wedding photographers boston ma.

Competency should be the priority when selecting a hopeful. Everything else is secondary. They can be the nicest person in the world, but if the photos aren't very good, who cares? You're not looking for a friend; you're looking for great photos of your marriage. But gauging competency is sometimes difficult. The work we all put on our websites and in our sample albums is our best work. And, unfortunately, that can sometimes be deceiving.

Once you have made a short list of the candidates for the job, it is time to meet them. The first thing that you want to see when you are interviewing photographers is a portfolio. Take a look at some of the marriages they have photographed in the past. Do you like the pictures? Are they well done? If you have a particular style of photography you like, then look for that in the photographers you interview. In essence you are looking for a photographer whose work, style, and personality matches what you want your marriage pictures to look like.

As you are interviewing them and looking at portfolios, you will also want to be asking about proofs and albums. Some will ensure that their customers get proofs of all of the photographs taken. Others only offer a larger formal album. Still other photographers provide customers with digital proofs and the rights to reprint any pictures.

Not having a college degree or a master's degree does not necessarily make a photographer a "bad" photographer, but it does give a bit of credibility and should be at least one factor you consider in your quest. Training programs also teach the "art" of photography. This aspect of wedding photography is much more subjective from the viewer's perspective but very important to brides as that is what they see. The art of photograph factors highly into how you make your first "cut" on your long list of attributes a photographer must exhibit.

Why email, why not simply call them? By nature, photographers have great people skills and as a result, many photographers are great salespeople. They will want to meet you before they show you the galleries. They'll say things like, "I'm happy to show you that, no problem, but let's meet and make sure we're compatible before we get to that part." That translates into, "Come let me sell you on my services and we may never even have to get to the pesky full marriage thing." Stick to your guns. Don't skip the initial research. 2-3 full marriages will give you a great overall picture of their style, coverage and skills.

Lastly, you will want to make sure your marriage photographer has a contingency plan in case of emergencies. What happens if he or she is sick on your marriage day? What about a family emergency? The majority of photographers have a contingency plan, but it is best to ask anyway, just to be sure.

After looking through several full wedding galleries of images (don't worry, you can move quickly, what you're looking for will be apparent as you go), narrow down your list to 2 or 3 photographers. Phone or email your narrowed down prospects and set up appointments. Pay attention to how quickly they respond. Ask an additional question in a separate email and continue to monitor response time.
