Tips for Finding a Great Wedding Photographer

by Chimlin Dao Wedding Photographer
When it comes to picking a wedding photographer to capture your special day, you want to choose someone who’s right for you. Follow these guidelines to find a perfect destination wedding photographer for your special day.

You love Photographer style

The first important point you need to decide is photography style, as that will help determine which kind of wedding photographer you’ll want shooting your wedding. There are thousands of Thailand wedding photographers each with their own individual style, from reportage, artistic, traditional and documentary. Find a photographer that edits their photos in a style that you love, in order to create fun and natural images that reflect you both.

Hit up your social network for recommendations

One of the best ways to find a Thailand wedding photographer that you’ll like and that you can trust is to ask your friends and neighborhood. A social media “shout out” for advice is a quick and easy way to hear other couples reviews and experiences from their weddings.

Do Your Homework

You should check Thailand wedding photographer reviews of newlyweds. You should carefully review likely wedding photographer website and blog to check out photos of other weddings they have shoot. Once you’ve found a handful of photographers as per your requirement, email each person and inquire if they’re available on your wedding date and what will be their photography rates. If the ones you’re interested in are available on your date and if their fees are within your budget, then you can schedule initial meetings.

 Set Up Interviews

After all the advice has been heard, your research done and the reviews read, the last step is to meet your potential wedding photographer in person. Set up in-person meetings with three to five potential photographers who are available on your wedding date to look at more of their work. Be prepared to talk about your venue, wedding style and what you visualize for your photos.

Compare Packages

When interviewing candidates, ask for a general range based on the photographer’s standard “shooting fee” and package, plus their standard rates for the type of album you think you’ll want and the amount of coverage you’re hoping to book them for (day of, full weekend).

Also, check if there’s a second shooter included in the contract, and if there’s not, ask about the possibility. It’s likely the second shooter can be confirmed later on, but the main benefit to having two shooters is, of course, you get twice as much coverage. If you’re having a larger wedding (250 guests or more), you might even want to ask about having three shooters so your photography team can be sure to capture the event from all angles.

Book early

Top wedding photographers in the Thailand can be booked not just months in advance, but years. Many will be taking bookings for one to two years in advance – popular summer weekends in peak season will be quickly booked up. Once you have meeting with the Thailand wedding photographer and everything is finalized, then book the photographer as quickly as possible. Don’t be left disappointed by finding a photographer who you love, but are already booked up on your wedding day.
