How to Hire a Wedding Photographer

Choosing the right photographer is one of the most important decisions you can make when planning your wedding. A photographer has the responsibility of capturing your memories of this once-in-a-lifetime event in a way that honors you and your moment. Being able to do that involves more than owning a camera.

There’s a lot that a professional photographer does beyond pointing and clicking. The article covers a photographer’s role, from meeting with them to discuss style, lighting, and angles. You have to be sure that their personality fits the tone of the gathering. If you have a loud and boisterous family, will the photographer be able to corral them for a photo? Do they know how to move around the room? What is their editing process like? Does their portfolio include shots of venues similar in size to yours? How many hours of coverage do you need? Should you hire a second photographer to make sure you don’t miss a moment?

This article from Marry Me Tampa Bay answers all of your questions about this crucial decision.
