How-To Find a Wedding Photographer

The best wedding photography captures candid shots as well as great portraits.

To get the best images possible you should look for a photographer who can capture both candid shots and great portraits. The best way to decipher a photographer’s talent for capturing candid shots is to ask former clients, or look at images to see if the subjects look natural and unaffected by the photographer’s presence. On the other hand, portraits are easy to identify as good quality. Good lighting and nice features are qualities to look for in portraits.

The best way to find the best wedding photography is to ask friends and family for references. Your friends will be able to share their personal experience of working with the photographer, as well as the time it took for them to get their finished images. You will be able to take a look at the images yourself to determine if you like the photographer’s style.
