FINDING A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER IS EASY, FINDING THE PERFECT WEDDING PHOTOS IS NOT SO EASY

Choosing a Malta wedding photographer can seem like an overwhelming task, but these 5 steps to choosing your photographer will replace overwhelming feelings with confidence.

1. CREATE A LIST OF YOUR DESIRES FOR THE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY.

This should include some basic information that will help you and your photographer work well together and communicate more effectively.

  • Budget

  • The style you are looking for (outdoor fun, old world elegance, etc.)

  • Format of pictures you want (packages, framed work, open rights for reproduction, etc).

  • Photography, videography, or a combination of the two (some photographers work as teams and some only provide one service)

2. ASK THE PHOTOGRAPHERS YOU ARE CONSIDERING A LIST OF QUESTIONS THAT CAN HELP YOU DECIDE EVEN MORE WHO IS RIGHT FOR YOU ON YOUR WEDDING DAY

  • How long have you been a wedding photographer?

  • How many weddings have your photographed?

  • What do you enjoy most about being a wedding photographer?

  • What are your biggest challenges when photographing a wedding? (It is important to determine if they prefer not to work with children if you plan on having a large family wedding and children will be included in the wedding party.)

  • What do you want from us as the wedding couple? (Photographers who have a game plan and are flexible enough to work with your personal preferences are often your best bet.)

3. ASK TO SEE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY SAMPLES

The portfolios of wedding photographers can give you a real taste for what to expect. If possible, see if you can look at a wedding example from the same venue where you will be celebrating. This can give you an inside scoop on how the photographer might use props and lighting that are natural in the setting.

4. 2 WEEKS BEFORE THE WEDDING GO OVER YOUR PHOTO PLAN TOGETHER

This is the time when you can determine which kinds of photographs you prefer and ask any last minute questions. If you are working with a wedding planner he or she should perhaps be there as well so that you are represented well.

5. BE CERTAIN YOU ARE COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHER

The best wedding photographers not only produce amazing pictures, but they get to know you and your future spouse and have fun with you on your wedding day. He or she will be capturing everything from the guests celebrating at the reception to your intimate first kiss. Make sure that you connect with your photographer and those pictures will truly be wonderful memories of your special day.
