Choosing A Photographer

Choosing A Photographer

Your wedding is something you will remember the rest of your life. You will replay those moments of your first kiss as a married couple, the beautiful décor, and you with your family getting down on the dance floor at the reception. This is such an important and special day for you and your spouse-to-be. Doesn’t it just make sense to have a photographer that will capture these moments exactly the way you remember them?

You have probably already figured out that Portland has no shortage of photographers, but how do you differentiate between the professionals and the hobbyists, and between various styles?

Here are just a few things to help you sift through the haystack of photographers:

  • What style of photos are you looking for? Do you like more natural looking photos or do you like them photo-shopped to the max?
  • Look through photographers online portfolios. Do you like what you see? Does this fit the style you are looking for?
  • Do you want a lot of décor shots? You put a lot of time and effort into every little detail of your wedding, it is important that your photographer captures all your favorite décor items.
  • Look through online reviews. Was this photographer easy to work with? On time? Timely? Did they fulfill the couples’ wishes? (This is a great way to see who the professionals really are.)
  • Count on your Wedding Planner to know which Professional Photographers fit your style and budget. The best reference is a professional one!
