Here are some of the top items that you should consider watching out for if you want to find the most creative wedding photographer:
A portfolio that excites you: finding a quality portfolio with past work from a local photographer is an important first step. Many photographers have websites as well as web addresses that you can stop by to check out some of their past work. Some photographers may also have large film books or albums that you can check out to see some of the work that they have done in the past. As you are going through the portfolio, if you start to see images that get you really excited for your wedding or images that look different from typically generic wedding photos you may have seen in the past, there is a very good chance that you have an excellent wedding photographer that you could work with. Keep looking through portfolios until you find a photographer who has portfolio work that can be extremely exciting for you and your partner.
A photographer that's willing to do anything to get a great shot: don't be afraid to ask your photographer about some of the craziest experiences that they have had shooting a wedding. Asking photographers about times that they shot in exotic locations or times where they had to put themselves in some interesting positions in order to get the shot is a great way to see how far they will go to please their clients. The best and most creative wedding photographers understand just how important capturing your day can be. The most creative wedding photographers are more than happy to spend time getting into position or even setting up well ahead of time to make sure that they can get all the best angles during the ceremony or the types of shots you are looking for.
Ask about the equipment they use: If a professional photographer uses some unique equipment, there's a very good chance that you can have some creative wedding shots that are one-of-a-kind. Photographers that can incorporate the use of older style camera technology are perfect for capturing a completely vintage look for your wedding day. You may even have photographers that are comfortable using drones, special camera rigs, and lighting setups to create beautiful and unique shots throughout the evening. Getting some details on the types of photo equipment and editing equipment that a photographer has access to will show you just how creative they can be with your photos.
Ask about how your photos can be printed and presented: one of the most commonly overlooked aspects of photography at a wedding is what you can do with the photos afterward. Many modern photographers can create online Web albums and experiences for your guests as well as your family to access in the future. There are many photographers that also can prepare prints, items with your photos printed on them and more. Asking about some of the projects that can be created using your wedding photos is a great idea to get the most creative uses out of all of the beautiful shots that can be captured, printed and presented at your weddings. If you have any special requests see if the photographer can make them a possibility. We can prepare a quote for prints and other special items alongside a quote for your wedding through our contact and quote form that can be found on screen here.
Have them pitch ideas to you: most local wedding photographers know the wedding venues and reception halls in the area quite well. Don't be afraid to express some of your basic ideas for shots and what you want to capture on the day. If your photographer can help you with some creative shots in the area across the venues or they have some experience shooting at that particular venue, it is likely that you can be in very good hands. Photographers that know a venue quite well can often produce shots in areas that you may not have discovered through your initial walk-through. A photographer's vision as well as the way that they frame shots can really change depending on the area where you are having your wedding. With some of the creative ideas that your photographer may have, you could potentially have a shot of your entire wedding party and family on the steps of the venue or even some creative shots from the top of a church venue looking down after the wedding. If some of the ideas that your photographer is having don't resonate well with you, consider trying interviewing somebody else!
Have someone with their own artist's voice: A wedding photographer that's willing to try too many different styles can be considered inconsistent in some cases. A photographer that frames the same shots for every wedding and produces set shots in the exact same portrait style can be considered to be a little boring. Choose a photographer that has their own unique artistic style and style of shooting but a photographer that also has some flexibility in their work. A photographer that has a vision and that crafts an image in their own artistic style has value and has been using their creativity over years to build images that are part of their brand. The purpose and the art style that these photographers have will give you a better story and narrative in all of your wedding photos.
Ask about improvisation: There are bound to be accidents and small hiccups throughout your wedding. Any wedding is a live event and 1 million things can go wrong but if the photographer is able to control the situation while pictures are happening and capture the moment in its most favorable light, its possible to keep the show on the road. Don't be afraid to ask your photographer about how they are able to improvise, what happens if their equipment breaks down, how they can organize everyone and how they can help you get the creative shots that you want during your wedding. Any photographer needs to know how to control a crowd as well as overcome various difficulties that can occur during photos and throughout a wedding day. A photographer that is creative and calm under pressure can be a huge asset to helping you keep your nerves during the most stressful periods during the day. Having a photographer that brings lots of extra equipment, support for storage when editing files and more is extremely important to securing your investment as well as keeping in the best frame of mind throughout the day. A photographer that has experience with improvising or even a story about a time where they had to find a solution very quickly at a wedding is going to really be an asset to your wedding day.
Make sure they can understand your needs as a client: you need to feel very comfortable in the relationship that you are forming with your photographer. Giving them some creative control so that they can tell your story from their creative vision is important but you also have to end up with photos you are going to love. Creativity isn't something that should be stifled by the photographer should also know exactly the types of shots and the type of narrative that you are trying to tell. If you have a good feeling of rapport with your photographer through the process of planning out your wedding photos, there's a good chance that they will continue to repeat your wishes throughout the day. Make sure that there is a fair amount of conversation upfront as you can often forget some of the main shots and preferences that you had during the very emotional day that will be your wedding.
