  • Every photographer clicks pictures based on their style statement.
  • A traditional photographer will never prefer to take candid shots but posed ones.
  • A photojournalist clicks candid pictures and admires candids the most.
  • But, a classic photographer prefers both as per the location, the highlights, the surroundings, and other elements that make perfect shots.
  • So, according to your taste in photography choose the photographer.

Credentials and their reputation

  • Of course the credentials of the photographer and their reputation among people matter.
  • If you wanna learn about their reputation, search for their presence on social media sites and the response of their audience.

Contract & Stipend/payment discussion:

  • After booking the photographer for your wedding, the most important thing is the contract between you two.
  • This contract includes all the points or clauses to which you and the photographer both agree to.
  • It must include the payment details after an agreeable discussion.
  • It must include every tiny detail about the wedding ceremony, from the location to the day and time.

If you’re choosy about cameras and Lenses, then try discussing and suggesting cameras to the photographer unless and until they only prefer their own choice.

You can suggest some of the high graphic cameras (such as Canon 5d mark 3, Nikon d750, Nikon d810, Canon 6d, etc).

And, after everything little discussion inform the photographer that the photographs are shot and edited with friendly software and formatted as compatible forms so that you can use them if you need them in the future.

“Choose the best wedding photographer and watch your album being admired by all”.
