 The Relay Station Event Hall - Choosing a Photographer

Weddings can be stressful enough when choosing the menu, the cake flavor, decor arrangements and more. When you finally tie the knot, you will want to have something to remember the day by, which is typically captured in photographs. A photographer is a very important part of a wedding, and choosing one will depend on various factors. Here are a few do’s & don’ts when choosing a photographer.


For starters, look around at different styles of photography to pick which will serve your personal aesthetic. Every photographer has a style, and you need one who can accomplish your vision. Make sure to be honest about your budget, so the photographer can help you stay under it. This is generally something you will want to consider with the photos being so important. You will want to feel comfortable on the big day, so make sure to learn a photographer’s personality before hiring them. It is also wise to ask them about their terms and conditions such as package types and hidden costs. Read small print when signing any contract to avoid confusion.


When it comes to what not to do, start by not rushing when hiring a photographer. Just like all other wedding arrangements, it’s best to hire a photographer in advance. This is so you get what you want and do not need to further stress about finding one last minute. Another bad choice could be asking a friend to take your wedding photos. They might mean well, but it is always better to have a professional on the site. Another don’t would be to skip an engagement session. It is wise to have your photographer take your engagement photos before the big day arrives. This way, you’ll have a visual idea of how they plan to take your wedding photos. This will give you a chance to decide if it is a good fit before it’s too late.

Your wedding day is a special memory, but photos are forever. Finding the right photographer for your wedding should be at the top of every bride’s list. To ask questions or learn more about our services, contact us today.
