An event photographer is someone who you want to photograph your wedding. They should be motivated, have good experience and communication and most likely they will have their own style. Event photographers will only possess these qualities if they are well trained and have lots of experience, so check out their past experiences before hiring them.
Every event photographer will have their own style. You will want to make sure that your ideas about your wedding will agree with their style. If you don’t you could up with a horrible experience. Depending on the style that your event photographer will use will vary. Some photographers like to be classic and other like to be bizarre. Classic photographs will include those of the bride herself, the groom himself, the bride and groom together, the wedding party, and everyone all together. Making funny faces and having completely serious faces might be considered a wild style.
When selecting an event photographer you will want one who is highly motivated. You don’t want to have someone who is inactive and sitting around missing all the good pictures they could be capturing. Motivation isn’t just about doing the job, but enjoying it and communicating are also involved.
Over time is the only way an event photographer will gain experience. Make sure you question your photographer how long they have been in the business, where they attended school and for how long, and who they were employed with before they went into business for themselves (if that is the case). Asking these questions can help you make a finer decision when picking an event photographer. Ask their previous employer what kind of work they produced if they are now in business for themselves. Its better to find out now even if it is kind of a sneaky way of getting the information.
Being comfortable around your event photographer will make things go smother. And they should try to make you feel comfortable and relaxed when around them. This will help them in capturing the beloved photos later on at your wedding. If you are tense around your event photographer you will see that feeling in your wedding pictures
