Your wedding album is something you will cherish forever. Your children and grandchildren will look at it and be able to see how their story began. It is a prized family heirloom that can be passed down for generations. Choosing a good wedding photographer is vital to capturing those happy memories and making your wedding album everything you want it to be. Wedding photography is different than other types of photography and you will want to choose a professional photographer that specialises in this field rather than a jack-of-all-trades type of photographer.

Your wedding album should be unique and an expression of your personal style.

The first thing you will want to do when choosing your wedding photographer is to look at their portfolio. Look at the other wedding photographs he or she has taken. Do they capture the moment? Are they artistic and unique? Or do they look like something your uncle could have done with his 35mm camera? You want your wedding album to be unique and express your personal style, yet not so artistic that they take away from the subject—you and your wedding day.

Make a shortlist and arrange to meet all the photographers before taking a decision.

Next, you want to interview the wedding photographer. Ask about prices and options. Explain the details of your wedding and ask what kind of vision the photographer has for your wedding photographs. Find out if the photographer is open to your suggestions as well. Interviewing your prospective wedding photographer will not only help you to understand whether he or she will take the kind of wedding photographs you desire, but it will also help you to see how easy he or she is to get along with. This person will be a part of your total wedding experience and will be dealing with your entire Bridal party as well as all your guests. You want your wedding photographer to be personable and make the experience of having photos taken fun for everyone.

Investing time to choose the right wedding photographer is well worth the effort.

You only have one wedding day and you want it to be special. Your wedding album will be your greatest keepsake and will help you to remember your special day and all the preparations that went into it. Choosing the right wedding photographer takes some time and effort, but it will help make your wedding photo album everything you ever dreamed of.

Having a professional video produced of your wedding day is well worth the additional expense.

You may also wish to consider a wedding video of your big day. You will therefore need to find a wedding photographer that can also demonstrate experience in producing professional looking videos. Very often you will find that as this requires a different set of skills (especially in editing and post video production) it is more sensible to employ a wedding video specialist, to ensure that you will be totally happy with the finished result.
