What should you know before hiring an affordable wedding photographer?
Posted: May 29, 2017
Congratulations! You are engaged now and have started preparing for your big day. You will have many things to do on your list. And among them, choosing an affordable wedding photographer will be a crucial one.
The first step for you is to Google search an affordable wedding photographer in Boston and look at their online portfolio. But you may save a lot of time and energy by following the below tips.
Pick your own style
Before you begin looking online for wedding photographers, decide how you want your pictures to look. Do you want traditional posed photos or you want candid ‘in the moment’ photos? There are many couples who like to have a mixture of both. So if you too want a mixture of both, choose your photographer accordingly. Keep these things in mind when searching.
Do research but pay attention to recommendations
It is good to ask around friends or family members whose wedding photographs you really liked. You can get a feel for their experience working with the photographer. Another place where you can get good recommendations of an affordable wedding photographer in Boston is wedding forums. You need to find someone who is creative, who pays attention to your ideas and is easy to work with.
Meet the photographer personally
You should never book a photographer over the phone or via an email completely based on their portfolio. No matter other couples have given positive feedback, you should meet the photographer personally to know whether they are responding to your ideas or not. Before you finalize, choose 3 to 4 photographers to interview so that you can compare, contrast and see their different working styles.
Can the photographer survive the pressure?
Ensure your wedding photographer is capable of surviving pressure. Are they able to improvise their plan if there is a bad weather or there are many guests to shoot at your wedding? You should also find out whether they are good at capturing children or not. Only very few photographers know the skills to photograph children, especially the babies.
There is much more to consider while choosing an affordable wedding photographer in Boston. Many event photographers in Southern Maine also provide the services of wedding photography. You can even hire an event photographer who has shot weddings in the past. Read their testimonials on the websites as well as on the social media platforms. This will help you make a more prudent choice.
