How to pick the right photographer for your wedding

Your wedding day may very well be one of the most important days of your life; you have waited anxiously, prepared for months, and most likely invested a lot of time, money and effort into your event. It is very important that you pick the right photographer to capture every special moment. Here are a few tips from photographer Angela Pan (<a href="www.abpan.com"></a>;) on how to go about choosing the right photographer for your wedding.

1. Look at other people's pictures

Ask friends who recently got married, who photographed their wedding. Even if you don't like the turn out of their pictures find out who it is so you don't hire them.

2. Skim thru wedding bogs.

Usually the photographer is sited somewhere on the bog post and make note of different styles. Photographers stick to a particular style. It may be romantic, realistic, dark, etc. Make sure that this photo style matches your wedding theme.

3. Check out potential photographers websites/blogs

Most photographers have blogs. It keeps their fans up to date with new stuff they've been doing. If a blog hasn't been updated in a while with wedding/engagement images, there may be a reason why. Make sure their style, fits your style.

4. As you are looking at other peoples pictures, wedding blogs, and magazines

print out, tear out, or some how make a copy of the pictures you definitely like and give that stack to your photographer. Tell him/her why you like those pictures and make them write a list of the definite shots you want. Use other people's wedding as inspiration for your own.

5. Ask photographers what comes in the package

Many wedding photographers include a book, cd, poster print out. Make sure you are paying for what you want.

6. Ask your wedding planner who they recommend. Wedding planners usually know the best photographer’s in the area and most likely will know who could provide the types of photography you are looking for. In most cases you can find a list of photographers on event planning websites.
