There are so many great options in wedding photography available now to couples, and it can be almost overwhelming to know how to find the best match. As a seasoned wedding photographer and studio owner, I’ve had a lot of experience working with couples to find a photographer and style that works best for them.
For the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing my best suggestions for booking your wedding photographer in Booking Your Wedding Photographer: Tips Series by Christian Oth. Following these tips will get you one step closer to getting great photographs that you’ll be able to cherish for years to come.
Week 3: The Test of Time
Do their photographs stand the test of time? I believe a talented photographer should be able to capture beautiful photographs without using trendy processing or editing techniques in the studio that will date them down the road. These techniques applied after the fact, are often used to distract from sub-par photography. Instead, look at how the photographer is able to use natural light sources to accentuate the subject of the photographs, and their creative ability to use framing and focus to draw your eye to the subject. A great, timeless photograph should still be able to communicate the same feeling to the viewer twenty years later as it did on the wedding day.
So, always ask yourself- does this photographer’s work stand the test of time?
