7 Tips for Hiring a Good Wedding Photographer
With the rising income levels, weddings are no longer just an occasion calling for a huge celebration in a family. The stakes are high and the spending is huge. No matter how much you may shell out on a particular wedding outfit, the venue, décor or even the food; there is only one thing, which will preserve this moment for eternity-it is Photography.
While every one knows the role photography plays in sealing those priceless moments forever, yet not all with best intent end up having the best pictures.
So what are the hurdles people face in hiring a good photographer and more importantly, who in their eyes is a good photographer?
We are sure that most people begin their search journey for a good wedding photographer by visiting either photographers’ aggregators or most commonly googling for wedding photographers.
But a critical question to ask here is–who is a good photographer for you?
Are you looking for some one who has an eye for creativity and strikes a cord with you through his work and fits your budget or do you want some one who is an SEO expert or a brilliant marketer?
Just like a few years back, entrepreneurship had become a fad, so has wedding photography also become one these days.
These days you would come across so many people posing themselves as candid photographers; people who talk about leaving their plush corporate careers to pursue their passion for this art.
With the availability of free information online, many low cost photography courses and equipment on rent, there is no dearth of candid wedding photographers who have created enough industry clutter further adding to the woes of the soon to be couples and their families. Moreover, candid has perhaps become the most abused term in wedding photography. Every other new photographer portrays himself to be a candid photographer.
Many of these are part-time photographers who claim to have intense love for this field but are never confident enough to plunge full time into it to do complete justice to their love of life.
While, we are penning down our views through our own personal experience of being wedding photographers and a client, we welcome views of all kinds of readers on this open debate.
So, how do we as a client break free from this clutter and bring on board a good photographer?
