Engaged? Tips To Find the Right Wedding Photographer

Congratulations on your engagement! Now what??? Here in Southern Oregon, there are so many wedding photographers! How do you even begin to find the one that's right for you? Here are a few tips to help you navigate finding the right wedding photographer for you.

  1. Portfolio- Always thoroughly check out the wedding portfolio on the wedding photographer's website. If they don't have a website, chances are that they are a newer photographer. When looking through the photos, be sure that you see ones from real weddings, shot throughout the days events. You want to make sure that their editing style is one that you like and want for your wedding day. A lot of times, you may be able to see a full wedding day on the photographers blog site, so be sure to look through a few weddings there as well!

  2. Vibe- Be sure you vibe with your photographer. What I mean is that to make sure your personalities match well and that you are all on the same page. I always try to video chat with my potential clients before they sign a contract. This way we can chat and make sure we are both a good fit for one another. It also makes it more comfortable on the wedding day when I show up and we already know each other a little bit.

  3. Reviews- Check out the photographers Google Reviews. Reviews should be consistently good to great and fairly recent. If they don't have any reviews, then that may mean they are a newer photographer.

  4. Book them! If you are remotely interested in a particular photographer, ask them right away if your date is available. If so, get on the video chat or phone call right away to see if they are the right person for you and ask them how they require a booking. A lot of experienced photographers will book anywhere from 6 months to 2 years in advance. The busiest months for weddings are from May-October, and popular dates go quickly.

I hope this helps you navigate trying to find a wedding photographer a little easier. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out.
