The memories you have of your wedding will last a lifetime and, hopefully, so will the photographs. The pictures from your wedding ceremony and reception are items you will treasure for the rest of your life. You will browse through the album again and again in future years and share your special day with your children and grandchildren. The photography is an important aspect of any wedding and one that shouldn't be taken lightly.

Be sure to hire a respected professional photographer who specializes in weddings. Seek the advice of friends and family as well as other wedding professionals. Begin your search for a photographer at least six months prior to your wedding as most experienced photographers book well in advance. Before you hire a photographer, ask to see samples of his or her work. Look critically at the pictures provided. Some questions to ponder include:

  • Are the pictures sharp and clear?
  • Are the colors vivid and true-to-life?
  • Do the people in the photos seem relaxed and natural?
  • Are there a good variety of posed and candid shots?
  • Does the photographer use interesting poses and angles?

Be sure you get along well with the photographer you hire. You may be stressed and hurried when the formal pictures are being taken and a good photographer should be able to relax you and allow you to enjoy the process. If you are impatient, nervous or uncomfortable when the photos are being taken, it will show through in the pictures. Make sure you can talk to him or her about the shots you do or don't want missed.

Before you sign a contract, make sure you understand what you get for the price. Some photographers offer packages that include photos, an album and their time. Others charge by the hour and separately for the photos you choose to buy. Make sure all of your costs are listed in your agreement. If you can purchase the negatives from the wedding, that is your best bet as you can make your own prints from those.

A couple weeks before the wedding, talk with your photographer about the photos you would like. Make sure he or she writes down who you would like in the formal photographs. This way, you don't have to try to remember it all on the day of the wedding. Also, make sure the photographer knows of any people you would like to get shots of candidly throughout the day. Sometimes the candid pictures are the best and the most memorable.

The bottom line is: Don't scrimp on the photographer. Spend the money to hire an experienced photographer who will provide you with high quality pictures of the people you love. If a deal seems to good to be true, it probably is.
