2. Choose Quality Over Quantity for Wedding Photography

Some couples make the mistake of going ahead with the photographer that offers more pictures for the least amount of money; this sometimes results into too many pictures with compromised quality. So, we recommend choosing a wedding photographer that offers value for money and most importantly, is experienced! After all, your wedding album shouldn’t just be a replica of your special day. It should be a keepsake with the most memorable moments to look back on.

3. Choose Someone who can cater to your Photography Needs

Make sure you and your partner have a thorough discussion on the kind of pictures you would like your photographer to click. Whether you’d like to go for candid shots, staged shots or would you like a wedding video to go with your pictures, each of these requirements need a unique skill set. So, it is important to choose someone that is skilled to cater to your needs and can satisfy you with the selection of pictures taken. The type of pictures you can get will also vary according to your budget, as candid pictures and videography are usually more expensive than traditionally staged shoots.

4. Opt for a Pre-wedding Photo Shoot

A pre-wedding photo shoot is an essential process as it helps you become comfortable with your wedding photographer. It also helps your photographer get familiar with your good angles. Pre wedding photo shoot helps your wedding photographer understand exactly what you’re looking for. Moreover, it is a fun way to spend some time with your partner before the wedding!

5. Meet Your Photographer Before the Wedding

We recommend shortlisting a few photographers according to your budget and having a meeting with each one in person. Look at their portfolios and get an idea about their experience, skillset and whether or not they will be able to provide exactly what you wish for. Make sure to book them well in advance and discuss payment policies, cancellation and refund policies. Always remember to ask if they will be shooting the wedding themselves or their associates will be doing so and if the travel and accommodation logistics expenses will be borne by you.

6. Sign a Legal Agreement or Contract with Wedding Photographer

Whatever you discuss with your photographer, get it in writing. This will come in handy in case there is any issue at a later date. The legal agreement should state the number of hours of work, number of images, delivery time, number of people in the photography team, ownership of the images, payment procedures and related terms, and more. You can get a sample agreement to compare online. Also share a timeline of events and functions that your photographer will be required to cover. Keep everything clear and on paper. You can also share a list of shots that need to be taken, like lehenga shots, jewellery shots, bridesmaids’ pictures, family photos etc.
