The wonder of looking at your photo album even after many years gives you the idea of how important it is to choose a good photographer.

The moment you and your sweetheart have determined that hiring a professional photographer is the smartest solution, you will face several difficulties. Among these difficulties is that of not knowing, among the many, which one to choose in order not to find a poor album.

The first step is therefore to understand what the photographer's favorite style is and to use it to your advantage by adapting it to that of the wedding. It is easy to deduce that one of the most important parameters before hiring the photographer is to perfectly adapt his photographic style to that of your wedding. From the style of the location to that of the dress you will need to ensure that there is a perfect overall coherence to obtain optimal results.

2. The available budget

Not all photographers require the same compensation, and, in most cases, this is modified according to the requests of the couple. In order for you to have a service equal to the value of the cost, it is essential to establish an initial budget and create a shooting that does not exceed that amount. Often you are afraid to ask for information about the costs and services offered by the photographer, but do not be afraid, it is his job and even the professional has no intention of losing the client. Request a detailed quote of what it can offer you with that budget and evaluate more than one to find the ideal solution. Obviously if you need to use several additions, such as the drone or a film shot, the cost will objectively be more important. In this case it is up to you to decide whether it will be worth it or not, always paying attention to the skills of the photographer in that specific service. The conclusions will be the result of the right balance between what you want to spend and what you absolutely want to have on the album.

3. View the photographer's work

A fundamental aspect to consider when hiring the photographer is certainly to analyze his works. Although customer opinions can be an important judgment parameter, it is essential to see his shots with your own eyes to understand if they are suitable for the couple's requests. Sometimes the colors, shades and impact of a photo album can be different depending on who observes them, we are sure that you want to have the best following your style and your personality. When you meet the photographer to request a quote, they are usually very good at presenting their best work to you. You will then be able to view the albums and photographs taken in contexts similar to what you are looking for and evaluate if it is suitable for you and your better half. We advise you, if you really want to be picky, to ask the photographer to show you some unsuccessful shots, in this way you will see the real potential of the professional.

4. The experience of friends and family

The selection of the perfect photographer is always long and tedious, so that you can reduce the time it is advisable to reduce the search field with the advice of friends and relatives. We are sure that you will already have some friends who have carried out a wedding or other shooting and you can ask for information on the professionalism and quality of the photographer's shots. In this way you can already have an idea of his work, perhaps viewing the album created by your friend or acquaintance. Sometimes, however, it is advisable to personally verify their work, maybe your friends have requested a different service, with a different budget, and you can't have the right comparison.

5. The first impact

As for friendship or love relationships, the first impact is very important to understand feelings and empathy. You will necessarily have to meet the photographer and you will most likely understand immediately if he is the right person or not. The relationship between you and the professional must be that of two people who want to get the best possible result, but it is essential not to take yourself too seriously. The photographer is a figure who must be a friend and to be trusted blindly; we are not on a set for a model shooting, we are looking for emotions and memorable shots full of happiness. When you communicate with the photographer, take care to explain your ideas perfectly and how you intend to manage all the phases of the shooting. His experience and desire to make you happy will try to help you get the best possible result.

6. Hiring a photographer: the contract

Last, but certainly not the least, is the finalization of the contract. Having taken note of the style, the ideas, and the way of photographing, you have finally decided to conclude the agreement and to blindly trust the skills of the photographer, but the contract? Many people, after having entered into a verbal contract with the photographer, find themselves a high bill to pay shortly after the wedding, partly ruining the party. When you have asked for a quote and have established the budget together, it is essential that you make sure that everything you have agreed is put on paper and signed by both parties before starting the collaboration. It may seem like a small thing, but in this way, you will have a guarantee that you will avoid unpleasant inconveniences. We also advise you to establish a maximum time for delivery of the work so as not to find yourself waiting two years as happened to different couples. Taken by the emotion of the event, you may have some embarrassment in discussing with the photographer it is therefore essential to establish a priori all the parameters and services that he will offer. That way you will all be happy.
