Truth be told, I was definitely back and forth for quite some time about what wedding photographer I was going to use for my wedding day.

Being in the wedding industry made it SO challenging for my husband and I to research and truly choose just ONE photographer/ photography company that would capture this special day for us.

But three years later, and I can definitely say that we chose the right team, and that looking back at my wedding photographs is one of my favourite things in the world to do.

So, to ensure that your day is as perfect as possible, and that you end up choosing the right photographer or team that truly loves and cares about you, and is able to serve you in the best way, you need to consider the following things:

  1. Personality is everything.

Remember that you are going to be spending a considerable amount of time prior to the wedding, and on the wedding day with this person. Ensure that you love them and that they become one of your friends. 🙂

Note: Think about how your loved ones make you feel when you interact with them. Think about the warmth, the positivity, and the love that you feel whenever they are near. That’s how you want to feel when you meet your ideal wedding photographer. If you don’t feel stressed around them, and they make you feel calm and bring nothing but joy, then they are the one for you!

  1. Choose a photographer whose style matches your own.

If you live for the bright and colourful, or you can’t imagine life without the earthy tones and minimalism, then you need to search for a photographer who eats, sleeps and breathes your preferred style!

Look for a style that is timeless, and one that you will appreciate and cherish forever.

  1. Get all the details.

Ask as many questions as you possibly can. Targeted and purposeful questions are key when choosing the right wedding professionals for your special day.
