Choosing your wedding photographer can be a daunting task. So many beautiful wedding images, so many different wedding packages. It can easy to forget the most important consideration – do you actually like the photographer as a person?
Query yourself about your wedding photographer
When interviewing wedding photographers, I recommend asking yourself a few hypothetical questions:
Could I be friends with this person?
And if so:
Would I want to invite them to my wedding as a guest?
Why is the personality of your wedding photographer so important?
It may seem like a strange scenario to play out in your head but remember:
You should get a “gut-instinct” feel in your initial consultation as to whether or not your wedding photographer will be a good fit personality-wise. However, if you love the images but are still unsure, arrange a second meeting or hire them for an engagement shoot so that you can see how they will operate and interact with people. This should give you a very good indication of whether the photographer is right for you.
It doesn’t matter how experienced or talented a wedding photographer is, if your personalities don’t gel, look elsewhere.
