So, here’s your current situation:
You are looking for a Wedding Photographer, but they’re everywhere. Everyone is claiming to be a professional. But how do you really know? You check reviews, but sometimes that’s not enough. How are you supposed to decide on such an important decision?
You need to ask yourself some questions first about what is most important to you?
- Someone to help organize the day
- Deliver in a timely manner
- Quality of photographs
- Quality of product from photographer
- Excellent customer service
- Flexibility on your day
- Responsive to communication
- Charisma with your guests or family members
- Ability to go above and beyond
What is your end goal? When your wedding day is over how do you envision it went. Think about it. I am going to give you some serious things to think about!
You start with your brides and bridesmaids getting your hair and makeup done photograph the bride and her girls, along with any family members in the room with the bride. Details are captured, but hair and makeup ran late and now you have to rush missing a ton of shots. You get to the ceremony and it starts late because important members of the wedding party are not there. The photographer decides to take a creative shot and completely misses the first kiss. The ceremony is over and you are rushed off the ceremony property without getting all of the family/wedding party photographs you wanted. You get to the reception, and the majority of the wedding party is drunk so no one is listening and going in every direction. You do the required reception activities, dancing, cake cutting, and eating. You look at the clock and the 5 hours you hired your photographer is over and they are leaving.
NOW, if you hired a PROFESSIONAL this is what you didn’t realize.
A professional knows that hair and makeup run late about 99% of the time and would have shown up early to photograph the details, dress and little things that go on the bride. Because a professional knows that once the items are on the bride they DO NOT come back off. You can’t go back and re-shoot the dress once it’s on.
A professional would have a PLAN B for every situation. A professional would only take a creative shot if they have something in place so they don’t miss the first kiss. Or a plan B on what to do if it is missed.
A professional can plug out family photographs super fast, and can be aware of the situation before it happens. If they notice that the wedding party is getting a little tipsy, they would have gone and grabbed someone from the reception to help get everyone in line or another family member to make sure everyone is safe and capable of functioning.
One last thing is a professional comes to you first before they leave. They take their time because they know that sometimes the best shots are after hours.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. When deciding who to trust. Trust a professional!

When looking for pricing you have to look at the amount you are paying. Are you paying someone enough to fix a problem should it arise? Are you paying them enough to be able to go above and beyond? If you are paying a photographer enough to break even they will NOT have the means or the resources to able to deliver the customer service you deserve.
