Things to Look for When Choosing A Photographer

By | blogpost | No Comments

When you are looking for the best photographer, it can be intimidating at first. It is not an easy task, so I decided to write this blog with the intention of making the process of choosing the best photographer more comfortable for you.

I knew when I got into the photography business that it would be tough. I am a professional photographer since (insert year). I have been working as a wedding photographer/videographer for quite some time now.

Becoming the best photographer came after tons of schooling, a degree, self-teaching and lots of error and trial, also, also free shoots to build up a high-quality portfolio. In the world of innovations, where expensive lenses and camera phones are at our fingertips, it is difficult for the photographer to stand apart and to prove that they are the one the customers should hire and convince you by their skills and expertise in the photography business.

Here are some things to remember when choosing the best photographer/videographer:

Experience

Not all best professional photographers have gone to colleges to get a photography degree. There are numerous photographers I appreciate who did not even go to school and college at all. However, they all are expert in the art of photography and give their 100% in whatever work they do. At the end of the day, experience is all that matters.

Quality and Consistency

Before hiring a photographer for your event, take a look at his or her past work experiences. All professional photographers will have a portfolio or a website to showcase their work. Look at the consistency in lighting, edits, color, and quality. Be sure to look at sessions that imitate what you are looking for.

Style

Each photographer has a different way of working, even if all of their equipment is identical. Photography reflects the eye, the perception, and the creativity of the photographer. Their style will be defined in the angles they choose, their edit, their compositions, the rules they follow, their creativity, or the mood and tone they convey with their sessions, appearance of a visual work which can be associated with a particular person or group of people

Reviews and Word of Mouth

When I first started to promote my business, I had a good friend of mine tell me that the best promotion is a happy and satisfied customer. Satisfied and happy customers talk about their excellent quality experiences and tend to tell others as well. Plus, it is always advised that you discuss this with your friends and family and on social media networks. The best way to learn about a photographer is to ask one of their past customers and read the reviews of their skills through photographers Facebook page.

Coordination and Organization

To wrap things up, choose a photographer who has all his or her bases covered. It is safe to say that they are organized with prices, editing timelines, and session planning. When hiring the photographer to choose someone who is familiar with the location of the shoot and also, with those they speak to ahead of time for any location request, scheduling, and one who will freeze special moments in time that could otherwise be lost.

  • Hire the videographer whose Style entirely matches yours

Renowned photographers take various approaches to their work, just like these, Videographers also pick different methodologies in their work. There are different video styles delivered in a unique way to the customers according to their requirements. In Documentary Style videos directed the event in chronological order without any special effects. On the other hand, Cinematic style is for more dramatic touch in it, using unique angles and techniques for a better Hollywood movie feels, for your Special day. You don’t need to confuse with both options and hire the one you like, that you think suits you the most.

  • Years of experience

A wedding day is a bunch of shared memories, and you want someone to catch every single moment in detail so that you can remember your precious moment years later by looking at the video. An experienced and creative videographer is the person who can ensure that will happen.

  • Go with the Professional Referral Factor

Professional videographers have many useful connections in the industry. And if they know anyone with excellent photography skills or who have worked with your videographer in the past, then you should consider hiring that person for better teamwork.

  • Discuss your needs with your videographer in depth

Your videographer can never deliver those values which you are expecting from him but did not discuss with him about your preferences. Usually, videographers look at their work as an artistic touch, so they have a specific plan for your wedding day that might be possible at odds with yours. Again, if you have a clear vision of what you want in your wedding video, you must discuss it with your videographer first.

Above are some of the critical and essential factors that need to be considered before hiring a videographer for your special day.
