Ask to see their portfolio and albums. Albums can tell you a lot about photographers. Does the album tell a story?Do the photos all look cohesive? What kind of quality is it? Make sure they have a professional website. Professionals will have a website with images of their work all over it. Those, who are working exclusively from Facebook, Google+ or a web gallery page, are probably not really qualified to photograph YOUR wedding.[/cs_text][x_image type="thumbnail" src="http://christopherpaulphotography.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/09/CP1_5586.jpg" alt="" link="false" href="#" title="" target="" info="none" info_place="top" info_trigger="hover" info_content=""][cs_text]Think of your photographer as your artistic director of your wedding. A professional should be able to direct/ lead when needed. That day is a blur for you. You want someone who’s used to knowing creating images and not just snapping off a few pictures as everything happens around them. We all prioritize what we want to invest in on our wedding day. For some, the venue is priority. For others it might be the band, flowers, food, or cake. Only you can prioritize what’s truly important. Just don’t be one of the couples we often hear say, “We should have hired a professional photographer. We hate our photos!”. No matter your priority, investing in a professional photographer should be at or near the top of your list! It's important to hire a photographer that will show off your personality! When all your children and grandchildren look at your album, the will see the amazing and unique people that you are. No matter what, you will want to walk away with from your wedding is amazing imagery in an album. That is the only thing that will last a lifetime.
