5 Top Tips For Considering A Wedding Photographer’s Portfolio

June 11, 2020

If you’re trying to narrow down your search for your perfect wedding photographer, the best thing that you can do is have a browse through their online portfolios, to get a better sense of what they are able to provide their clients with. 

When you’re looking through the portfolios of wedding photographers, they might all look like beautiful images that have been taken by skilled photographers, but it is important that you choose the exact photographer who is the best fit for you. 

In order to make this task a bit easier for you, we’ve come up with a list of our top 5 tips that can help you critically look through these portfolios, and come away from the search with a photographer who will be able to provide you with absolutely stunning images to remember your day by. 

  • How many different people are included in the shoots, and is it balanced well between the bride and the groom? This is a great indication of whether or not both the bride and groom were listened to and had their wishes accommodated. You want a photographer who will work to ensure that all of your guests are a part of the day’s photographs and that, crucially, no one gets forgotten.
  • What do they do differently, and do you like it? Each photographer is an artist, and so they will bring something entirely unique to their photographs. Consider their work with this in mind, and find a photographer whose signature style stands out in your mind as something rather stunning. 
  • Check out their reviews too, see how well they worked to accommodate their clients wishes, then check out the photographs that were created as a result. This is a great way for you to gauge how well this photographer will be able to work alongside you to create the shots that you had in mind. 
  • How unstaged are the photographs? Ideally, a wedding photographer should be able to produce a range of photographs, including both staged sophisticated images and ones that capture raw, authentic natural moments, too. 
  • Make sure you ask to see a full set of shots from one day – rather than the highlights across lots of different occasions, this will give you a clear sense of what the photographer will be able to offer you for your day.
