A picture is worth a thousand words but I believe that wedding photographs worth much more than that. They consist of love, passion, memories, promise and joy. This is why they are timeless and priceless at the same time.
The art of photography has come a long way. Thanks to the innovations in technology and image enhancing tools, wedding photographers are able to manipulate and create extraordinary photos like never before but still it is the skill with the camera that matters the most. Choosing the right photographer for your wedding day is probably the most important decision you’ll make after the choice of a spouse, therefore it is not to be taken lightly.
Couples wedding in the diverse coastal town of North Vancouver have a lucky dilemma of choosing from several great options. Whether they are planning for a posh affair at downtown hotel or a banquet hall, something imposing at Alberta or Brock house or something unique like exchange of vows in Sun Lotus guesthouse – your choices are endless. The market for wedding services is also quiet competitive and perhaps the most intense when it comes to wedding photography Campbell River, Victoria and Tofino. So, as a wedding couple there are certain factors that you should keep in mind when choosing the photographer for your big day!
Determine Your Budget
Your wedding is perhaps the most expensive event of your life and photographers fee, albums, prints etc generally makes up about 10 -12% of the total wedding budget. So determining your budget will allow you to discard the photographer who doesn’t fit in your budget.
Choose Your Wedding Photography Style
There are many photographers who approach photography as a preference. Some follow freestyle, ad type campaigns where the focus of the photography is the entire wedding theme with emphasis on the couple. Others are traditional style photographers (still photos with friends and family in picturesque settings). So it is for you to decide whether you would like to have traditional or candid shots or a combination of both.
Other important thing is to decide the level of service you want from your photographer. Do you want the photographer to capture the ceremony only or the whole package which also covers pre-wedding engagement sessions, rehearsals, newly wed photos and bridal portraits?
Get In Touch With Them
Having shot listed the candidates based on your budget, style of wedding photography and the level of service; see if they offer the level of customer service which they promise on their website or flyers. If they are not taking care of you or showing a professional intent than trust me, the chances of them treating you well won’t get any better if you decide to go with them.
